Dragon’s Dogma 2: How to get your special Pawn

You can summon special Pawns in Dragon’s Dogma 2 by using a special Forgotten Riftstone, and you can find one as you are following Gregor in the main quest.

Make sure to stay attentive during your journey in the wilderness as at one point you will come across a large rock on your right. One of your Pawns might even point out how it can be destroyed, and that will be your hint to stop.

Once you destroy the rock and head in, you will soon have to drop down a ledge and make your way to your left. After all this, you should have found out your first special Forgotten Riftstone. You can use this to summon an extremely powerful Pawn without using any Rift Crystal from your inventory in Dragon’s Dogma 2.
