Dragon’s Dogma 2’s expansive map is filled with all sorts of towns, caves, mountains, forests, and other POEs for you to explore. You’ll have to travel a lot while running errands for NPCs and completing quests. This guide will tell you everything there is to know about how transportation and fast travel work in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

You can fast travel in Dragon’s Dogma 2 using an Oxcart that has a fixed travel route or by using PortCrystals that require you to use Ferrystones. Each Ferrystone costs 10,000G.

Let’s take a look at how Oxcarts and PortCrystals work in-game and which mode of transport you should prefer during your escapades. (Spoiler alert: it is neither of these :p)


Fast Travel via Oxcarts

The first fast-travel option in Dragon’s Dogma 2 involves using the Oxcarts that carry people and goods from one town to the next. The Oxcart travels from station to station and has a route that starts from Melve and ends at the Checkpoint Rest Town.

You’ll have to wait for the Oxcart at the station. These carts only start traveling in the morning and can also get attacked by monsters at any point during the journey.

We’ve always gotten attacked while using the Oxcart, but who knows, you might get lucky and make the trip unscathed.

Note: If your cart gets destroyed during a monster attack, you’ll have to leg it and cover the rest of the journey on foot. Oh, and you won’t be getting any refunds for the ride either. 🙂


Fast Travel via PortCrystals


The second and most expensive way of fast traveling in DD2 involves using the PortCrystals that are found in almost all major settlements in the game. To use a PortCrystal, you must first interact with it.

Once you do that, it will become available for fast travel. But that’s not all. You’ll need a specific expandable item called Ferrystone to use Portcrystals.

These stones are extremely rare items that you’ll acquire as you complete quests and find them inside hidden treasure chests. Dont expect to have a huge number of them in your inventory. Buying a Ferrystone from certain vendors will cost you a whopping 10,000G.

Note: You’ll also find Portable Portcrystals in the game. They can be placed anywhere and used as points from where you can fast travel to the other fixed Portcrystals. (They, too, require Ferrystones)

From what we’ve experienced during our playthrough of Dragon’s Dogma 2, the developers have fully intended for their game to be explored on foot. They want you to venture out into the woods with your party of pawns and experience random encounters and monstrosities.

Since Dragon’s Dogma 2 has only one save slot, you’ll want to have backups of your manual save file. Check out our save file location guide to get more insight on the matter.

The option to fast travel is there, sure, but it’s more of an expensive/dangerous inconvenience that you will most probably not use very often. The best way to travel in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is…ON FOOT! The old-school way.
