The best Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods

Take a look at some of the top Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods to hit the RPG including increased carry weight, multiple save management, and more.

What are the best Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods? It’s early days for Dragon’s Dogma 2, but the character creator demo released by Capcom weeks before the official launch has already sparked some interest from the modding community. If the other RE Engine games are anything to go by, there’s going to be a lot to look forward to over the next few months.

Though we’re disappointed to find that Dragon’s Dogma 2 multiplayer isn’t a thing, the RPG game being single-player-only means it has plenty of modding potential. We’ve found the best so far from Dragon’s Dogma 2 modders, and just for fun, we’re also including a list of mods we’d like to see in the future.

The best mods for Dragon’s Dogma 2 right now are:

Eternal Ferrystone (Crazy’s Shop)

Within two days of Dragon’s Dogma 2 being live, someone already modded in a shop in Vernworth that contains virtually unlimited Ferrystones, Portcrystals, and Wakestones to make the game significantly easier. Crazy’s Shop gives you access to the items you’ve always wanted, but you were never allowed to have them.

Combine this with the Item Tweaks mod from Synthlight to give yourself access to fast travel from any location you want entirely for free. Of course, this will drastically change the way you play Dragon’s Dogma 2, but if you’re okay with adding a bit of convenience to your life, this is the way to do it. The Dragon’s Dogma 2 fast travel system is one of our gripes with the game, so we’re grateful for this addition.

Camera Tweaks

The default camera perspective in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is just a little too close for our liking, but LuizCaza’s Camera Tweaks mod fixes this issue by increasing the base field of view from 60 to 75. Unlike the photo mode mod, you don’t have to worry about Camera Tweaks breaking any of the in-game cutscenes.

Better Photo Mode (REFramework)

The photo mode is genuinely one of the biggest letdowns of the entire game. Most photo modes allow you to move away from your anchor point to take the perfect photo, but Dragon’s Dogma 2 fixes the anchor point to your character. Fortunately, RE Framework gives you the freedom to point the camera anywhere you’d like, allowing you to take photos that used to be impossible.

NPC Hairstyles

Why should Dragon’s Dogma 2 characters like Wilhelmina and Ulrika get to have the nicest hair in the game? Fortunately, Jenya66 has made it possible to use NPC-exclusive hairstyles as both the Arisen and Dragon’s Dogma 2 Pawns with the NPC Hairstyles mod. Unless you go to a barber to change your hairstyle, you’re going to have to look at that bonnet all day long, so you may as well have a dope cut.

Height Mod

Dragon’s Dogma 2 may have a fantastic character creator tool, but the game sure is lacking when it comes to short king options. Modder StrykerA has gone above and beyond with this one, giving players the option to create characters under five foot with their height mod. This does come in two forms: 140cm and 150cm limits. The creator recommends picking 150cm as this should work correctly when playing online.

Better Beetles

This handy Better Beetles mod means that instead of every Golden Trove Beetle increasing your carry weight capacity by 0.15kg, it gives 1kg, 10kg, or 100kg of increased encumbrance. Imagine all the things you can carry around with you with that hugely increased capacity.

The UI hasn’t yet been updated with this mod, so the in-game message will still only say it’s increased by 0.15kg. The change can be seen in the status menu though, if you want to double check.

Save Manager for Multiple Characters

This Save Manager mod allows you to start a new game whenever you want to without losing progress on your other characters. Having multiple characters without a mod isn’t possible, as we detail in our Dragon’s Dogma 2 multiple saves guide, but this mod has changed that for the better.

You can have unlimited saves, roll back to old saves, and back up your saves in case they become corrupted. Thankfully, this mod uses next to no resources as it’s controlled via the command prompt. 

Art of Metamorphosis Tome

This Art of Metamorphosis Tome mod adds the item to the first merchant you find in Melve, and to Philbert’s in Vernworth. This controversial item is an inclusion with the Dragon’s Dogma 2 microtransactions, but as has been widely stated these are also available to purchase in-game.

This mod moves the item closer to the start of the game, but you might also want to read our guide on How to change your Dragon’s Dogma 2 appearance, for other methods of doing so without spending a cent.

Hide Helmets

You’ve spent so long crafting the perfect Pawn, only to have that ruined by adding a near-essential piece of Dragon’s Dogma 2 armor. With the Hide Helmets mod you’ll be able to have all the positives of the protective headgear without the drawback of not seeing your character’s face.

How to install Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods

Installing Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods is dead simple, all you need is Fluffy Mod Manager, a standalone application used across a variety of games.

Here’s what you need to do to install Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods:

  • Extract Fluffy Mod Manager to its own folder. For convenience, you may want to place this in your My Documents folder.
  • Run the application and select ‘Dragon’s Dogma 2’ as your active game.
  • Drop your downloaded mods into the following directory ‘/modmanager/Games/DragonsDogma2/mods’.
  • Click the ‘refresh mod list’ button inside the application to see your new mods appear.

New mods are disabled by default, so you need to enable them before launching the game.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 mod wishlist

It’s impressive to see how unflinching the Dragon’s Dogma 2 developers are when it comes to protecting their vision of what the game should be… however, there are elements we definitely would change if we had the chance. With mods, we might be able to experience the Dragon’s Dogma 2 we always dreamed about.

Here are some Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods we’d like to see in the future:

  • Mounts
  • Improved map navigation
  • Different enemy types

Mounts

Did you know that a Griffin can scoop you from the map and fly you across the world, dropping you anywhere, and leaving you to fend for yourself? That tells us that both mounts and flying mounts are possible, but the game doesn’t want us to have these things. Well, we’ll see what modders have to say about that. We can’t wait to ride our pet Griffins around the map, but we’ll also settle for Link’s motorbike from Breath of the Wild. Hell, just give us a horse, pretty much anything is better than walking everywhere.

Transmog

There was a point in the game where I had to pick between my character’s luxurious hair or a stupid helmet. I sold the helmet. We know there are plenty of stylish outfits in Dragon’s Dogma 2 that we’d love to wear to the ball and to the battlefield, but the game hasn’t been designed with transmog in mind. If only there was a modder out there who could let us wear our favorite drip without having to sacrifice our stats.

Improved map navigation

Uncovering the entire Dragon’s Dogma 2 map will take you a long time, and it doesn’t help that you don’t have access to simple tools like a waypoint system to help you get to your locations faster. When you place a pin on a map, you expect the game to create a path for you, especially when the game doesn’t have mounts and lacks a good Dragon’s Dogma 2 fast travel system. We’d love to see someone mod in basic map tools to make adventuring a little more enjoyable.

Different enemy types

The combat in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is incredibly fun, but there’s only so many goblins and lizards we can pummel to dust before it starts to feel all too similar. We’d love to see a wider range of enemies, maybe swap out some goblins for fire-breathing bugs, or let us fight against a giant spider of sorts. Considering the size of the map and the amount of caves in it, we could easily see someone hiding away several rare enemies to create unique instances similar to the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Sphinx.

Those are the best Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods so far, but stay tuned as we’re going to be updating this page whenever new mods are released. In the meantime, why not check out our Dragon’s Dogma 2 vocations guide to see which class you or your Pawn should choose. We also have our Dragon’s Dogma 2 review which you should give a read if you haven’t done so already to see our final verdict.
