How to survive the night in Dragon's Dogma 2 - guide

In Dragon's Dogma 2, like in the first part, there is a day and night cycle. This is not just an effect, but a separate mechanic that affects your adventures and forces you to prepare for it in advance. In this guide, we will tell you how daytime events differ from nighttime events and how to experience them most comfortably.

What is the difference between day and night

It's actually quite simple. There are a number of monsters in the game that only appear at night. You won't encounter them during the day. In addition, at night, for obvious reasons, visibility decreases, which means it becomes more difficult to navigate the terrain.

Why travel at night

Nothing unexpected here either. It's all about resources.

After the fight with night monsters, you will receive slightly different resources. Most of them will be needed to improve equipment, but there will also be some that are necessary for quests. No matter how much you want to travel exclusively in the light of day, sooner or later you will have to plunge into darkness.

How to survive the night

The first tool that will help you feel a little more comfortable is a flashlight. It's easy to turn on, but there is a catch - oil. When it ends completely, the light will go out. Therefore, it is worth taking care of consumables in advance and purchasing supplies in the city.

The second way to survive the night is to set up camp. This can be done at special points marked on the map with a fire icon. At night, you can see smoke from the fire in the sky from a distance, so finding them is not that difficult. However, it is worth exercising caution here too. Your sleep could be disturbed by wandering undead, a pack of wolves, or worse. Before you go to bed, take care to clear the surrounding area.

Another good tip is to travel by road. The probability of meeting a particularly strong enemy there is significantly lower than in the thicket of the forest. In addition, you may stumble upon a cart that will take you to the nearest settlement. Just be careful: if the cart is illuminated not by ordinary fire, but by a bluish light, it is an undead trap.

Finally, you can wait out the night in a city or settlement. All these places are well protected, so there is no need to worry about security. If you don’t have money for a hotel, you can just take a nap on any free bench.
