How to Revive in Dragon’s Dogma 2

You’ll find that your Pawns quickly become overzealous and leap forth into combat with wild abandon. They’re downright dangerous sometimes, but only to themselves. If you spot a downed ally, you’re in luck because you can revive in Dragon’s Dogma 2!

How to Revive Pawns in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To revive Pawns in Dragon’s Dogma 2, watch their state mid-combat. You’ll find they quickly go down while you’re focused on enemies, and there is a timer to contend with. Once you notice a Pawn is down for the count, free yourself from combat and run over to hold down the interact button (B on a controller) to revive your companions.

If you do not revive your Pawn in time, another member of your party will scoop them up on their shoulder and bring the downed party member to you. This is bad, unfortunately. Typically, the reason you didn’t revive them fast enough is that you’re in the middle of combat. The last thing you need is a downed Pawn at your feet while trying to fight.

It’s best to rush over, revive your ally, then get back to the fight. It only takes a few seconds.

How to Revive Yourself in Dragon’s Dogma 2

If you fall during combat, don’t worry—it happens to the best of us. Plus, as long as you have a unique item in your inventory, it’s not the end of your journey.

That item is the Wakestone. If you gather three Wakestone Shards, you can combine them to craft a Wakestone, which will “restore the dead to life.” In this case, you.

Thankfully, you do not require a Wakestone for Pawns. In tens of hours of gameplay, I only used two Wakestones. Overall, the combat feels more manageable and fluid than in the first game!
