How to Get Your Own Home in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Getting your own home in Dragon's Dogma 2 is expensive, but possible in mutliple places.

Every RPG these days should give you the ability to buy and customize your own home. Dragon’s Dogma 2 gives you at least part of that, offering a handful of purchasable dwellings of various sizes and prices.

Where to Buy a Dwelling in Dragon’s Dogma 2

So far, I’ve managed to find three purchasable dwellings in Dragon’s Dogma 2, but only enough gold to buy two. The first pair is in the capital city of Vernworth, and the third is in the capital of the southern land of Battahl.

The first one I found, a small apartment in Vernworth requires a short quest to earn the right to purchase, as does the one in Battahl. The most expensive of the three is a straight purchase, but don’t expect just to have the right amount lying around. It’s a truly princely sum.

The first dwelling likely to become available during your playthrough of Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the small studio apartment in Vernworth. On the eastern portion fo the main square, you will eventually come across a woman in a fancy hat and hunter’s attire named Mildred.

Speak to her, and she’ll say she’s going out of town for about a week and would like you to watch her home for her. Accept the quest to start A Place to Call Home. You’ll have full access to the house, including the storage chest, though you don’t yet own the place. From there, spend five or so in-game days doing whatever your heart desires, then return to Vernworth to find Mildred at her home again. She’ll say her wanderings have made her reconsider where she lives, and now she’d like to sell the apartment to you as your permanent home. You can own the quaint dwelling for 20,000 gold.

In the grand scheme of things, 20,000 gold is a pittance, and one you can easily earn through farm money with pawn quests or selling loot and outdated gear you find in your adventures. Having a dwelling keeps you from needing to pay for an inn to rest or have your pawn return from beyond the rift, so it’s a worthy investment.

You’ll find a much larger dwelling available for sale in the Vernworth Noble Quarter in the city’s southern section. You’ll know the place by the stout man standing before it, pondering his next steps. Speak to the man, and he’ll mention that the home is, for various reasons, for sale, and he’s willing to let you buy the deed for a reasonable price. “Reasonable,” in this case, means 200,000 gold.

Yeah, I know it’s a lot, and I’m personally still trying to drum up that kind of funding while keeping my character and pawns’ gear up to snuff. It’s rough, let me tell you. Still, if all you care about is getting the biggest house available in Vernworth, you’ll need to sell lots of loot, do lots of gold pawn quests, and skip buying the best upgrades for a while.

Bakbattahl Roadside Dwelling

The third dwelling I’ve been able to find in Dragon’s Dogma 2 so far is a small apartment in the capital city of Bakbattahl. Before you can purchase it, you need to progress the main story quest by going to the Rockmouse’s Burrow tavern and meeting with Menella. She’ll grant you a residency permit for Battahl, after which you can find a woman in a green shawl on the northern road.

The woman will offer to sell you a nearby apartment for a small fee — 30,000 gold, in this case. While I don’t think the place itself is worth that much, the inn in Bakbattahl costs an absurd 9,999 gold for every stay. For as much time you’ll spend in and around the capital city, that 30,000 one-time investment essentially pays for itself in three sleeps.

I am almost positive there are more homes to buy in Dragon’s Dogma 2 across north Vermund and Battahl, and I’ll update this guide as I find and/or buy them.
