Typically, while you relaxation in Dragon’s Dogma 2, your important Pawn will choose up work from different gamers on-line. These loyal non-playable characters in Capcom’s newest high-fantasy role-playing sport are inclined to return bearing items, such because the forex Rift Crystals (which you should utilize to rent different gamers’ important Pawns) or consumables for well being and stamina replenishment. Nevertheless, not each participant that hires your Pawn for a job is an actual particular person, a function Capcom seemingly designed to ensure each servant will get their participation trophies.

Redditor MrFoxer took to the sport’s official subreddit to debate their findings on April 2. In the post, MrFoxer talked about how Capcom will generally create a “pretend participant” to hire out your important Pawn so that you simply nonetheless earn Rift Crystals in case your important Pawn isn’t getting employed by any actual gamers. You’ll be able to inform when your important Pawn has been recruited by one in every of Capcom’s pretend gamers by trying on the report card. If the participant’s identify is grayed out when your important Pawn returns within the morning, you’ll know that participant wasn’t actual. It’s kinda unhappy, truly, however everybody deserves their flowers—even unhireable Pawns.

As MrFoxer defined, these pretend gamers Capcom conjures from nothing can do all the pieces an actual participant can in Dragon’s Dogma 2. This consists of score your Pawn, giving them items to return to you, and serving to them full their assigned quests. Should you didn’t know what to search for, it’d be nearly inconceivable to tell apart an actual participant from a pretend one when your Pawn returns from past the rift (the in-game’s phrasing for getting into and leaving on-line lobbies).

Capcom’s official FAQ on Dragon’s Dogma 2 confirmed MrFoxer’s findings. The corporate defined that these pretend gamers have a tendency to look based mostly on whether or not or not your important Pawn’s on-line entry setting is about to “No One.” If that is so, and your Pawn returns from past the rift with goodies in hand, then it was recruited by one in every of Capcom’s pretend Dragon’s Dogma 2 gamers. Should you see a grayed-out or dashed-replaced identify, that’s your inform it’s in all probability a pretend participant.

So, don’t fear should you can’t work out who employed your Pawn. Whether or not it was an actual participant or not, Capcom’s protecting your loyal servant employed, which is good.
