The Rift in Dragon's Dogma is an ethereal realm that exists parallel to the world that can only be accessed through special rift stones which can be found scattered around the map. It is a place where the player can summon and hire other player's pawns or NPC pawns of various types of vocations that supports your character and help you on your travels. Players will be able to gain access to the Rift once you have completed the quest Call of the Arisen through Rift Stones.


Rift Stone Information 

Rift stones are small, blue glowing stones that act as portals to the Rift, where only the Arisen has access to go through that allows them to pick and choose which pawn they would like to hire with the in game currency known as Rift crystals. They are scattered around various locations around Gransys and Bitterblack Isle.

The first significant interaction between the Arisen and the rift stone is when you get the quest Call of the Arisen. To which after you interact with the rift stone, you can customize your main pawn and hire up to two other pawns in the Rift to support the players adventure.


Well met, Arisen. Can you hear our voice?

Rift Crystals in Dragon's Dogma are the currency for hiring Pawns found within and outside of the Rift. They are also used to enhance weapons and armor through a process called purification. In addition to weapon and armor enhancements, Rift Crystals can also be used to purchase special items such as elixirs, jewelry, armor, and other valuable resources that are hard to get throughout the game from Johnathan at Johnathan's Rift Shop located at the Command Headquarters in The Encampment.


Players will be able to access Johnathan's Rift Shop once the quest A Rude Awakening has been completed and is active at all hours of the day.


Arisen... I am honored to make your acquaintance. This pawn is known as Johnathan. I am a collector of items from other realms.
