What are Wakestones in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

Per the in-game item description, Wakestones in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are a magick stone made from Wakestone shards that have the power to restore the dead to life

When you have one in your item inventory and happen to fall during a battle, you’ll get the option to spend it to bring your character back to life. They are extremely useful if you’re taking on a tough enemy and are close to killing them by die. When revived by a Wakestone, you’ll stand back up at full health, cancelling out any loss you might have accumulated during a fight.

Other than your own character, Wakestone can also be used to revive NPCs. You can do this by finding their corpse in the Charnel House, such as the one in Vermund or the morgue in Battahl. This is useful if you inadvertently kill someone who is important to a quest, which does happen.

Where to find Wakestones in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Wakestones are found in chests throughout Dragon’s Dogma 2 or can be crafted using three Wakestone shards. A good place to find Wakestones is the castle in Verworth. Check all the chambers and you’ll come across one or two.

The crafting of Wakestones from shards isn’t done manually though. As soon as you have three in your inventory, the game will automatically transform them into a Wakestone for you. You can also buy Wakestone shards from select vendors for 5,000 gold, including Ibrahim’s Scrap Store in the Checkpoint Rest Town.

To help you track down Wakestone shards, you can use a consumable item called Dragon’s Gaze, which will pinpoint the location of nearby shards as icons on your map. Note that the number and location of shards changes over time so pick up the marked shards immediately after using a Dragon’s Gaze.

The item becomes available from Captain Brant in Vernmouth as a reward for completing The Nameless Village quest. Talk to Brant at night in The Stardrop Inn and select the ‘Tell me of the false Sovran’ option to start the quest.

Alternatively, there’s also a Dragon’s Gaze up in a chest at the top of the Vernmouth Watchtower. The watchtower is perched on top of the Vernworth castle and can be accessed by using the elevator on the second floor. Remember to enter the Noble Quarter during the day to avoid hostile guards.
