“Dragon’s Dogma 2 shows no mercy”

The dragon plague in Dragon’s Dogma 2 can become a real problem. It causes players to panic in droves and resort to harsh measures. Your own vassal has to believe in it.

What is the Dragon Plague? There is currently an explosive topic making the rounds in the Dragon’s Dogma 2 community: the dragon plague.

This is a plague that your vassals can get from other auxiliary vassals in the Rift.

We have collected everything you need to know about the dragon plague in a separate article for you. One thing is certain: the epidemic can become a real problem. In the worst case, it wipes out entire villages and towns.

Yes, you read that right. It’s not just your vassal who gets sick and behaves strangely from then on. It can happen that it infects the residents of a city and they then drop dead one after the other.

This also affects important NPCs such as quest givers or traders. This shows that the dragon plague should not be underestimated.

But there are ways to solve the problem. For example, the plague is passed from vassal to vassal. So if your vassal infects another, he himself will become healthy again. But then it may be too late and the village in which you are about to do important errands falls victim to the plague.

That’s why many players are currently taking more drastic measures.

The loyal vassals must die

What is the community doing? The dragon plague is evident in the red, glowing eyes of the vassals. They seem to be suffering from headaches, but at the same time they are also getting stronger in battle.

So can the plague perhaps even bring an advantage? No, says the community and does what needs to be done. As Reddit user ChudSampley writes in a post, Dragon Plague is a “hideous” mechanic in the game.

At the same time, he also finds it funny to see how panic breaks out at the slightest sign of illness. The effective solution to this is: throw your vassal to certain death.

Deep water is particularly suitable for this, where both opponents and minions are eaten by the bizarre water tentacles.

Capcom has already announced the first updates – but the community has much more wishes.

Are the vassals dead forever? Fortunately, the death of your own companion is short-lived. You can revive your minion at the next Riftstone.

And if important NPCs die due to the plague, you can also revive them from the gravekeeper in the city of Vernworth. Or you can use one of the valuable Lazarus stones.

Other players report on Reddit that you just have to wait long enough for the population of a town to revive itself.

However you approach the problem, killing your own companions is probably the quickest and most effective way to get rid of the plague. However, you have to be prepared to sacrifice a loyal comrade. Can he forgive you? After all, your vassals also like to gossip about your trips to the brothel.
