Find out how to fast travel in Dragon’s Dogma 2, allowing you to get around the world more efficiently.

The world of Dragon’s Dogma 2 is huge and full of danger. Whether you’re travelling from one town to another or heading into the unknown to complete a quest, chances are considerable time will be spent combatting enemies that you encounter or dealing with other issues that crop up. And so, you might be wondering how you fast travel in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

The first thing to know is that Dragon’s Dogma 2 doesn’t have an extensive fast travel system like other games in the genre. Unfortunately, you can’t just open up your map, chose a major point of interest or resting point that you’ve discovered and then warp to it. There’s a reason for that, as the game wants you to explore and experience dynamic events. It does have a couple of fast travel systems you can use, though, which can help cut down travel times in certain circumstances.

Firstly, in some towns you can find oxcarts that you can use. In Vernworth, for example, you’ll find them at both the north and west exits, allowing you to fast travel to Melve and Checkpoint Rest respectively. So, whenever you’re in a town, open up the map and look for an icon on the map that looks like an ox’s head to see if travel by oxcart is available. Just be aware that it costs a small sum of gold to travel by oxcart (about 200 gold), and while you can doze off while seated in the cart to speed up the process, you can sometimes be ambushed by enemies in the road, forcing you to fight.

The other method of fast travel that’s available in Dragon’s Dogma 2 requires valuable objects called Ferrystones, as well as Portcrystals. Large Portcrystals can be found at various locations in the game’s world. There’s one in Harve, for example, and also one in Vernworth. By activating these, you can then use a Ferrystone to warp to them instantly. The trouble is, Ferrystones are fairly rare. And if you do find them in shops they’re expensive at 10,000 gold each. This method of fast travel is best used in an emergency, then.

We should note that you can obtain some Portcrystals that you can place yourself while playing Dragon’s Dogma 2. These are very useful indeed, as you can lay them down absolutely anywhere, allowing you to make your own fast travel points. If only Ferrystones were easier to come by. And cheaper.
