In the opening hours of Dragon’s Dogma 2, you’re given access to Pawns, both in the form of your Primary Pawn and Support Pawns. Your Primary Pawn sticks with you throughout the entire game while Support Pawns will come and go from your party. Of course, to add new Support Pawns with a higher level or different vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you need to know how to dismiss your existing Pawns.

The max Pawn party size is three, which includes your Primary Pawn, leaving you with two empty slots for Support Pawns. While you can choose to ride it out with a couple of specific Support Pawns, their levels won’t increase with yours, making them very weak as the game progresses. As such, you’ll eventually need to dismiss those two Support Pawns to make room for ones around your current level.

Fortunately, you’re easily able to swap Pawns in and out in DD2. For starters, you need to find a Pawn Riftstone, which is the large rock with blue-glowing text that you’re introduced to at the Borderwatch Outpost. There are dozens of Riftstones scattered across the map, so you should have no issue finding one regardless of your location.

At the Rifstone, examine it and enter the Rift, where you can see all sorts of new Pawns to recruit. Once you find one you like, go up to them in the Rift, talk to them, and choose the option to add them to your party. However, if you have a max party, then you’ll get the option to dismiss one of your two Support Pawns.

You can dismiss whatever Pawn you want and also send them off with a gift. However, the gift is not required to dismiss a Pawn, so you don’t have to give up an item if you don’t want to. I should note that you also don’t want to give Pawns a stack of anything as a gift, as you give them the entire stack and not just a singular item from it.

With the Pawn dismissed, your new Pawn can join the party. This is the only way to dismiss Pawns from your party, so as long as you know where a Riftstone is, you can continually hire new Support Pawns in Dragon’s Dogma 2.
