Dragon's Dogma 2 is great, but installing a handful of mods to add some missing features can take it to the next level. Dragon's Dogma 2 is a wonderful game that marches to the beat of its own drum, eschewing features that many might expect as standard in other games.

If these strange design choices frustrate you, thankfully there are mods for the game that can help; from allowing you to have multiple save files to improving traversal, and even completely altering how items work. Here are our picks for some of the best mods you can download and install right now.

Gameplay mods

The mods in this list make changes to a variety of the game's systems. These are by far the most impactful mods on the experience, so be conscious of how much you are altering the game before installing any of the following.

DD2 Save Manager

Starting off with a big improvement, DD2 Save Manager addresses an issue many have raised about the game: the lack of multiple save files. Currently, you can only create one character and have one save file in the game, at launch there wasn't even a new game option if you wanted to start over.

With this mod, you can revert back to any previous save at any time. This is an excellent tool for fixing mistakes, trying different paths, or avoiding some disastrous consequences if a certain plague begins to spread.

Infinite Stamina Out of Combat

Dragon's Dogma 2 will have you covering a lot of ground on foot, and sprinting eats away at your stamina rapidly. While you're in a settlement, your stamina doesn't drain from sprinting, so why isn't that the case elsewhere?

With the Infinite Stamina Out of Combat mod, you get exactly that. Whenever you are not engaged in a battle, sprinting will no longer run your stamina meter down. If there is one essential mod on this list, this is the one.

Do Not Be Afraid of Excess Weight

If stamina isn't the biggest limitation on your Arisen, then the carry weight limit surely is. All items have a weight attached to them, and should that weight add up to more than you can carry, your character will slow to a crawl.

Do Not Be Afraid of Excess Weight alters the properties of the Ring of Accrual, increasing the carrying capacity buff from 5 to 20, 50, or even 500. You can pick this ring up from merchants in Melve and Vernworth, and with this mod, you won't have to worry about your backpack anymore.

Item Tweaks

To go a step further from the previous mod, Item Tweaks allows you to not only remove the weight of items entirely but also reduce their cost to buy and increase the price to sell. This mod is less of a quality-of-life update and more of an outright cheat.

Not that that's a bad thing - cheats have been missing for far too long from games. This mod is great because you can customise its effect to your liking; either make smaller changes to make your life a bit easier, or go all-out and decimate the game's economy for your benefit. The choice is yours!

Crazy's Shop

While we're on the topic of toppling the free market for our own benefit, Crazy's Shop is an excellent mod, especially when paired with Item Tweaks. This mod dramatically improves the supply of items in the shops of Vernworth, adding 255 Elite & Explorer Camp Kits, Wakestones, Rift Crystals, Ferrystones, Golden Beetles and more.

The stocks resupply every day, so you never have to worry about buying out an item (not that you would with 255 of each on offer) and waiting an age for the store to restock.

Enemy Drop Ferrystone

Ferrystones are an important resource in Dragon's Dogma 2, allowing you to instantly teleport to locations like Vernworth. However, they are single-use items and not as easy to come across as you might like. If that is the case, Enemy Drop Ferrystone is a mod that adds a percentage chance for each enemy defeated to drop a Ferrystone.

The chance is pretty small, starting from less than 2% per enemy and increasing up to nearly 15% from tougher enemies. The mod doesn't line your pockets with Ferrystones, but it does give you a better chance to keep a few of them on you.

No Job Requirements

As standard, every weapon and piece of armour in the game is tied to a specific vocation or a handful of them. A fighter cannot equip a mage's staff, a thief cannot equip a sword, and so on. The No Job Requirements mod changes all of that.

The mod allows you to freely equip any weapon or piece of armour while using any vocation. Now, a fighter equipped with a bow can do little more than fire the bow and kick, as equipping a weapon outside your vocation locks all of your abilities beyond the basic attacks.

If you really like the look of an armour set for a different vocation, or you simply want to mess around with different setups, this mod gives you the freedom to do so.

Cosmetic mods

The mods in this list are more focused on how your character looks, which may be the most important factor for some people. There aren't as many cosmetic mods for DD2 so far, but there are a couple that you should consider.

Early n' Cheap Art of Metamorphosis

The Art of Metamorphosis is a single-use tome you can use to jump back to the character creation menu and recreate both your character and your main pawn. These books are pretty rare and very expensive, but where's the fun in that?

Early n' Cheap Art of Metamorphosis adds the book to the inventories of both the first merchant you encounter when entering Melve, and Philbert's Sundries in Vernworth. The book will only cost you 10 Gold, allowing you to update your look as often as you have a tenner to spare.

NPC's Hairstyles

There are a handful of NPC's in the game who have unique hairstyles, and should you want them for yourself or your pawn, the NPC's Hairstyles mod will allow it. If you like the look of Ulrika, Wilhelmina, or Disa's 'dos and want to pinch their hairstyles, now you can.

Bear in mind that this mod does not add the hairstyles to the list so much as overwrites existing ones by swapping Ulrika's look onto Hairstyle 12, Wilhelmina's onto Hairstyle 24, and Disa's on Hairstyle 57. You might want to check the list first to make sure you're not sacrificing a hairstyle you like.

Weapon Transmog

This mod is an early days work in progress, but it allows you to change up the look of your weapons. Weapon Transmog only applies to fighter and thief weapons so far, but for those vocations, you can use this mod to alter the look of your weapon without changing its stats.

This mod is gaining new features all the time, as you can now make your shield invisible if you so choose. With more updates likely on the way, this is a great mod to keep an eye on.

FF7 Buster Sword

It isn't a mod list if there isn't at least one glaringly standout addition, and what could stand out more than the FF7 Buster Sword wielded by Cloud Strife? It's silly, it's wonderful, and it's everything you could want in a mod.

The mod replaces the model of the basic fighter's sword with the Buster Sword, but by pairing this mod with Weapon Transmog above, you can apply the look to any sword in the game. Hopefully, this is just the first of many stupidly funny mods coming to Dragon's Dogma 2. Now, if someone could just turn the dragon into Thomas the Tank Engine... 

How to download & install mods in Dragon's Dogma 2

Installing and using mods for the game is pretty simple, as you can do it all through the mod manager. Dragon's Dogma 2 has its own mod manager called Fluffy Mod Manager, which should be the first thing you install. With this, you can then start downloading other mods and adding them to the manager.

The steps are as follows:

  • Download Fluffy Mod Manager from Nexus Mods
  • Extract the files into a folder and name it something like "Dragon's Dogma 2 Mods"
  • Download any mod you like from Nexus Mods
  • Once downloaded, open the file
  • Navigate through the folders until you find the one with the same name as the mod
  • Copy this file and paste it into the mod manager
    • The location to paste it is Games - Dragon's Dogma 2 - mods

Once this is done, the mod will be ready to use. You then need to return to the first folder and run the Modmanager application. This will launch Fluffy Mod Manager, where you can tick boxes to apply each mod you have installed, then click Launch Game to play with them.
