How To Fast Travel in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a massive open-world action RPG that encourages exploration and immersion.

While traversing the vast realm of Gransys on foot or by your trusty pawns is part of the adventure, there are times you may want to get from point A to point B quickly.

Luckily, the game provides some fast travel options, though they have some limitations.

Let’s break down how to fast-travel in Dragon’s Dogma 2 using oxcarts and portcrystals.

  • Fast travel via oxcart or portcrystal to quickly reach distant destinations.
  • Oxcarts are cheap but slow, only run in the daytime, and can be attacked en route.
  • Portcrystals enable instant teleportation but require rare and expensive ferrystones to use.
  • Place up to 10 portable portcrystals (fast travel points) to set custom warp points.
  • Limited fast travel is an intentional design choice to keep exploration engaging.

Oxcart Travel

The most accessible fast travel method is by hitching a ride on an oxcart. These large wooden wagons can be found at stands in major cities like Vernworth and Melve.

Simply approach the oxcart during daytime hours, pay the driver a small fee of 100-200 gold, and take a seat in the back.

While it’s not exactly lightning fast, you can “doze off” to skip the actual journey time. Be warned though – your nap may be interrupted by monster ambushes along the route. If your oxcart gets destroyed in the scuffle, you’ll be hoofing it the rest of the way.

Key oxcart locations:

  • Melve Oxcart Station near Melve.
  • West and North Vernworth Oxcart Stations near Vernworth.

Portcrystals and Ferrystones

For near-instant fast travel, you’ll need to make use of portcrystals and ferrystones:

Portcrystals are glowing fast travel markers found in key locations like Vernworth and Harve Village. Interact with one to enable it as a warp destination.

Ferrystones are rare consumable gems that allow you to select an activated portcrystal and teleport to it from anywhere outdoors.

They can occasionally be found as treasure or quest rewards. Some merchants sell them, but they don’t come cheap at 10,000 gold a pop.

Later on, you’ll gain access to portable portcrystals that you can place almost anywhere as a custom fast travel point (up to a max of 10). But again, you’ll still need a ferrystone in your pocket to zap to one.

So while Dragon’s Dogma 2 does include fast travel, it’s intentionally designed to be a limited resource. The lack of a “click-to-warp-anywhere” option encourages you actually to traverse and experience the dangerous, living open world.

Careful preparation and planning your routes is all part of the immersive adventuring the developers are aiming for.

So gather your party, check your supplies, and venture forth into the wilds of Gransys. The open road awaits, Arisen!

Just maybe keep a ferrystone handy for when you’re in a pinch.
