6 Things you might not know about Dragon’s Dogma

Dragon’s Dogma is a massive game, and while there is a decent manual, there are tons of things you have to discover for yourself. Rabidgames explains a few useful secrets of Dragon’s Dogma:

The save game situation: It’s the biggest problem of Dragon’s Dogma: If you fail a quest, the game overwrites your file, it’s over. But there are two options to avoid this: First, simply rest in an inn or touch a riftstone (yes, that also counts as checkpoint) before starting a complicated quest (e.g. that damn annoying Gold Idol one). If you fail the quest for whatever reason, got to the Save/Quit menu and Return to the last checkpoint. Problem solved.
Second, to make sure a corrupted save file ain’t the end of the world, always, and Rabidgames means always, copy your Dragon’s Dogma save file to another device (be it USB stick, Cloud, whatever). That way, you’ll be on the safe side.

Quick saving: Just press START and then SELECT. It’s way faster than the alternatives.

How to use flasks: You surely know all those small bottles and you might have wondered what they should be used for in Dragon’s Dogma: Well, if you soak your enemies with water, thunder spells will hammer them harder, and they become prone to being frozen solid by ice spells. The same goes for oil: Douse enemies and then set them on fire. Watch them burn more effectively!

Moldy food is good for you: Yes, it’s true. In Dragon’s Dogma, moldy (or mouldy in BE) apples or sour meat will heal you more than fresh food. Selling moldy food will get you more money as well. Just be sure it doesn’t start rotting.
However, even rotten food is not lost, too. Just put it into an airtight flask and combine this item with spring water (bottled water from one of the healing springs).

Saving money at upgrades: When you upgrade a weapon or a piece of armour in Dragon’sDogma, just upgrade to level 3. That way, you will save materials and money. In most cases, level 1 and 2 are not significant anyway.

Easy Depositing: After roaming the wilds for a couple of days, it has been a big pain to deposit all your goods in Dragons’ Dogma. But there’s a handy trick: Just press START, and you will deposit all items of the respective category at once. Just be careful and don’t press START at the wrong place …

Rabidgames is curious: Dragon’s Dogma has been out for quite a while, and yet, there are new things to discover. Well done, Capcom, well done.
