You know, I'm somewhat Elvish fluent myself.

To speak the tongue of the elves is to challenge linguistics and a little bit of gibberish. However, you need to know they’re not chatting breeze behind your back. Here is how to speak to elves in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Dragon’s Dogma 2: How to speak Elvish

Before you try to learn Elvish from the books of Tolkien or other fantasy writers, you have to know that your Arisen will never be able to speak to elves by themselves. You may be destined to recover your heart from a dragon, but speaking to elves in Dragon’s Dogma 2 on your own merits is impossible.

However, there are ways to circumvent this inconvenience: use an interpreter. Translated to in-game mechanics, you will have to find or make a Pawn with the Woodland Wordsmith specialization. This will automatically convert any Elvish dialogue and writing to English – or your selected language.

Hire an Elvish-speaking Pawn

If you’re just starting up your journey, you will notice that your created Pawn will not have any specialization. Pawns learn specializations after you encounter and interact with specific NPCs who will eventually allow your Pawns to specialize from them. This takes a long time. So, the quicker answer lies in the different Riftstones that can be found all across the world in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Enter the Rift and then search for a Pawn that has the Woodland Wordsmith using the Official Pawns option. Then, go to the Specialization/Quest tab and search for the elven-speaking Pawn. In my case, I found a properly named Pawn M. Bison. I found it at the very first Rifstone at Borderwatch Outpost. If, for whatever reason, you aren’t able to find it, I would suggest moving to another location and try finding your Pawn again.

Alternatively, if you have a friend that has a Woodland Wordsmith Pawn, you can use its Pawn ID to summon that Pawn to your party.

Once you do, just hire said Pawn by clicking the interaction button and you will be good to speak with the elves without having a giant question mark on your face.

Teach your pawn to speak elvish

The second option can only be done once you have reached Sacred Arbor, the home of the elves. Here you need to make your way to the Inn. The Innkeeper is in much need of love and is the key to speaking elvish in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Her name is Kough, and you need to give her some flowers every day for up to seven days to raise her affinity with you. Players have reported this taking as little as two days, and some as many as seven. I guess it’s up to how sexy she finds the Arisen. Either way, persevere. These are the flowers that seem to work for her.

Once you have achieved the required level of affinity with this elf, she will share the Woodland Wordsmith Tome. You can then teach this to your Pawn, meaning you can now speak elvish in Dragon’s Dogma 2. It will make your Pawn a much sought-after character in the rift, too, meaning you can start charging serious gold for their use.
