With an open world as big as the one in Dragon's Dogma 2, I don't blame you for wondering whether you can fast travel - but while the means of instant teleportation is there, it might not be as convenient or available as you might think.

You needn't worry too much though, as there are plenty of treasures to find on your travels in-game from Seeker's Tokens to new weapons, and you can even pass the time by learning how to cook some tasty meals. When you really need to get a move on though, fast travel is there, but you'll need to think about whether the journey is worth the cost in the long run.

Can you fast travel in Dragon's Dogma 2?

You can fast travel in Dragon's Dogma 2, but you can only teleport to Portcrystals that you've already activated, and you'll also need to use a Ferrystone from your inventory to do so.

Furthermore, you can't use a Ferrystone inside a building or cave, so you'll need to head back out into the open air if you want to quickly get out of a tricky situation.

Portcrystals are purple glowing rocks found in many of the game's main towns and cities that become activated once you find and interact with them. Always be on the lookout for one when you're walking around a hub area, as they'll definitely come in handy later on when you don't fancy trekking across the entire map.

You can eventually place up to 10 of your own Portcrystals at locations of your own choice, giving you a greater level of freedom when it comes to fast travel - but you'll largely be restricted to the predetermined options at the beginning of your journey.

Furthermore, as mentioned you'll also have to use Ferrystones to travel. These can be found as loot in chests as you travel through the world. Make sure to always stay on the lookout for these as they're quite rare - and don't waste them on trips that could easily be walked instead.

Alternatively, one mostly unlimited form of fast travel is the Oxcarts that you'll find in all of the towns, cities, and even villages across the world. The caveat here is that they only travel from one pre-determined static location to another, and they do cost money to use - albeit only around 100 Gold.

You can doze off in order to skip the long journey - but do be warned as you can be rudely awakened by dangers along the way too.
