Dragon’s Dogma 2 Pawn Quests: Badges, reward, and more

A well-travelled Pawn is a powerful Pawn.

The Pawns in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are all loyal defenders and helpers of the Arisen, across the many worlds that exist. To make the most out of your main Pawn and other Pawns, you’ll need to understand their Quests, Rewards, and Badges.

How to set and use Pawn Quests to get rewards in Dragon’s Dogma 2

You’ll be notified about Pawn Quests rather early into your journey, and any attempt to change your Pawn’s Quest will be fruitless. The most common Pawn Quest will be to travel for a day and a night to receive a Wakestone Shard. This will also be your Pawn’s Quest when starting.

You will be able to change your Pawn’s Quest when they return to you from having aided other players. Your Main Pawn is always out and helping other players even when they’re by your side. You will be able to see what they were up to, how many they helped, and what gifts you were given the next time you sleep at an inn.

This won’t happen after every inn visit – only if they’ve been on adventures with other players between your last inn sleep and now. Once your Main Pawn has presented their Travelogue, you’ll get to set a new Pawn Quest, where you can specify what you want and what the reward will be.

There are two types of requests that you can ask of another player, but I’ll touch on those later. It is with these requests that you’ll earn a specific reward of your choosing.

Once you’ve set the request, you must set a reward in turn. This reward will be taken out of your own pocket, be it an item or a sum of Gold. The most gold you can give is 10,000, and you can only reward one item at a time (at a custom quantity provided you can supply it). This is the incentive for the other player to not only take on your Pawn but help them achieve their quest and get you what you want.

Hit Confirm once you’re happy with the Pawn Quest, and the next player to hire your Pawn will hopefully complete it.

You’ll notice that you can’t set the “Travel for a Day and Night” quest. This is likely because this is the default quest that will replace the one you set once it gets completed by a player. It wouldn’t be a nice surprise to see the Quest that you offered 5,000 Gold for be completed numerous times. Make sure to visit inns often to refresh your Pawn Quest as much as possible.

If you wish, you can also change your Pawn Quest when interacting with a Rift Stone when already inside the Rift.

How to set and get Badges through Pawn Quests in Dragon’s Dogma 2

When requesting something, one of the things you can request is Pawn Badges, which may prove a strange topic to wrap your head around.

Badges themselves represent a Pawn’s experience with certain monsters and regions. There are two types of Badges: Monster Badges and Field Badges. You can view the Badges your Pawn is working towards in the Status menu for your Pawn (and other Pawns in your party).

Earning a Monster Badge requires your Pawn to be involved in fights with certain dangerous creatures, like Ogres, Minotaurs, or Griffons. Upon defeating a creature, they will advance along that creature’s Badge by one point. When they complete a Badge, they will become more effective and knowledgeable about killing that creature, becoming an asset to any party.

Earning a Field Badge requires your Pawn to camp in a certain region numerous times. Upon earning this Badge, they will become much more knowledgeable of that region and will be able to help out other players by pointing out secrets and beneficial advice. If another player is to go adventuring in that region, they will desire the aid of your Pawn.

You can streamline the process by requesting another player to help your Pawn advance in a certain Badge that they’ve already started.

In the request section, choose a Badge that your Pawn is already working on, and upon your next inn visit, they’ll hopefully be another step closer to achieving that Badge.

How to trade with other players through Pawn Quests in Dragon’s Dogma 2

The other request type allows you to directly trade with other players. You can ask other players to give your Pawn a specific item of your choosing that you know about. It can be an item that naturally occurs, is found from a defeated foe, must be bought, or must be crafted. Note that not every single item can be requested for your Pawn to be given.

The other player will see what your Pawn is after, and can directly give it to them or look out for it in their travels. Once your Pawn has the item, the Quest will be completed, and they can be dismissed.

As you must offer a reward for the completion of a Quest, this acts as a trade. Players who can give the item you’re requesting and want the item you are offering will hire your Pawn to complete the transaction.

You can take this another step further and use your Pawns as a means of reliable trade. Swap the IDs of your Pawns with your friends. Upon interacting with a Rift Stone, you’ll be brought to the Rift. Interacting with the Rift Stone again will open up a menu. Select “Search for a Pawn,” and then “Search by Pawn ID.” Enter the ID of the Pawn of your friend.

If the both of you agree to a trade, you can make it your Pawn Quest and have them make it. This is a reliable way to trade resources and items between worlds.

Knowing all about Pawn Quests and what they’re useful for will help you make the most out of your Main Pawn and retrieve much-needed items and Badges.

Speaking of Pawns and change, however, you may grow curious if you can change your Pawn’s appearance, which is also a possibility.
