Dragon’s Dogma 2: All enemy weaknesses, listed

As we make our way through Dragon’s Dogma 2, we’re learning more and more about enemies and their weaknesses. For now, this may not include every single enemy, but these are some of the toughest enemies to tackle and what their weaknesses are.

Cyclops

While the Cyclops doesn’t seem to be weak to a specific element, we know for a fact that their eyeball is their weak spot. Make sure to aim for their head so you can hit their eye and make it easier for them to fall prone.

You could try climbing on top of a Cyclops and crawling up to the head for a better angle. I also recommend slashing their feet as a way of debilitating them and making them fall.

Golems

You won’t typically notice Golems at first, as they act like a normal pile of rocks. But as soon as they begin to form and you start hitting them, you’ll quickly realize how tough it is to damage them. You also want to aim for the glowing medals on their body to stop them from moving.

My Mage, who then became the Sorcerer Advanced Vocation, couldn’t damage the Golem with either fire or lightning spells. Instead, use ice spells on the Golem, as they’re highly susceptible to ice damage. I would also make sure to aim for the face and the glowing medals on their body to stop them from moving.

Harpies

Any Harpy you’ll come across will be an incredible annoyance as they like to make your party fall asleep. Before they have a chance to debilitate you and your pawns, shoot the Harpy down, or cast a lightning-damage spell.

Whenever I cast Levin, which can deal Lightning damage from a distance, the Harpy would immediately fall to the ground. You can even keep hitting them with Levin as a follow-up attack with any of your four spellcasting buttons (space bar, left-click, F key, or V key).

Griffons

The first time you fight a Griffon you may soon realize just how weak they are to fire damage. Anytime I used a fire spell on a Griffon, their whole body would catch on fire and they would take a ton of damage.

My ice spells weren’t so bad either, but fire is the way to go. Even if you aren’t a spellcaster, you can collect spell books to cast fire spells or enchant your weapon with fire damage. If you’re not a spellcaster, climb on the Griffon and attack the head.

Slimes

Slimes aren’t tough enemies to fight, but there is one sure-fire way of getting rid of them. Deal fire damage to any Slime you come across and they can quickly dissipate and die.

It also seems like fighting a Slime with magic is the way to go, as physical damage doesn’t work very well against its jelly exterior.

Undead

If you thought you could escape zombies in this fantasy game, you’re unfortunately wrong. When you come face-to-face with the Undead, I recommend using either fire or holy damage on them.

They’re not too aggressive since they walk pretty slowly, but they’re good at staying on their feet for longer than you’d like.

Saurians

Saurians are lizardfolk who fight with long spears. The easiest way to tackle any Saurian is to cut off their tails. Any non-magick Vocation can do this easily with practically any weapon.

But if you’re a magic Vocation, try using deadly fire damage against them. It seems to always work in my favor against Saurians.

Skeletons

As creatures of the night, Skeletons wander the open world when the moon is high and are cursed with immortality. You have to make sure to beat them senseless to keep them down, or else they’ll reanimate again.

As for weaknesses, Skeletons are weak to lightning attacks. They can be fast, creeping up to you when you least expect it. But you can see them in the dark with their glowing purple eyes.

Now that you know more about tackling enemies in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you may be interested in unlocking new Advanced Vocations such as Warrior and Sorcerer.
