An RPG game won’t be complete without a cute or stunning female character you could romance. Thankfully, this option is available in Capcom’s latest game. Here is a complete romance guide for Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Affinity in Dragon’s Dogma 2

The terms affinity and romance are different in this game.

Affinity can be raised through simple interactions and by giving gifts to most of the NPCs. To know what gifts they love, you can check the NPC Logbook which is located under the History tab of the Pause menu.

You can choose to befriend specific NPCs due to the bonuses they give such as discounts on their shops.

How to Give Gifts in Dragon’s Dogma 2

You can easily gift an NPC by talking to them. Then, the game will give you a “Gift” option during their dialogue.

This will open your inventory, where you can select any item to gift to the NPC. As mentioned earlier, you can do this with almost any NPC in the game, may they be major characters or minor ones from side quests.

Lastly, it’s important to note that you can only raise an NPC’s affinity once per day. You can’t max out their affinity in one go, thus you must rest and make a habit of talking to them.

Romance in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Romance, on the other hand, falls under the same branch, albeit a bit different. Rather than gifting a few items, romanceable NPCs need their quests to be finished before you can raise their affinities.

You could technically “romance” anyone in Dragon’s Dogma 2. The game is a full-fledged RPG in which imagination is important to the experience it offers.

However, only two known characters provide a proper romantic storyline. This comes with their own steamy voice lines and hopeful cutscenes.

Who can you romance in Dragon’s Dogma Two?

Currently, you can only romance Wilhelmina and Ulrika.

How to romance Wilhelmina

Wilhelmina is known as the stunning woman in Vernworth. Her charms know no bounds in addition to her sharp wits.

If you want to romance Wilhelmina, you must complete the following quests:

  • An Unsettling Encounter
  • The Stolen Throne
  • Every Rose has its Thorn

As for the specific details, you will have your opportunity when you’re doing the Seat of the Sovran quest. This will eventually lead to the Vernworth quest from Brant. After some time, you will then unlock The Stolen Throne and An Unsettling Encounter. Complete these two quests.

Additionally, you must jump out of Allard’s room window during the Encounter quest. If you don’t, you may miss Wilhelmina and the chance to romance her.

You can talk to her at the Rose Chateau Bordelrie, which will trigger her romance quest, Every Rose Has Its Thorn.

Note: There’s a chance that you have to wait for multiple days to trigger Wilhelmina’s romance quest. Be patient; stay in the inn until you see Rolf on her door.

How to romance Ulrika

Ulrika is Melve’s young yet promising leader. She is a capable fighter with a simple beauty. Thanks to her diligence and strong sense of responsibility, she is a huge inspiration to her people.

To romance this brave young woman, you must travel to her hometown, Melve, and trigger the “Readvent of Calamity” side quest.

To do this naturally within your walkthrough, do the following steps:

  • Go to Vernworth
  • Talk to Captain Brant during the Seat of the Sovran quest
  • Complete one of the quests given
  • Proceed to Melve, where you’ll notice a dragon attacking
  • Choose to fight this dragon, which will trigger the Readvent of Calamity quest.

Doing the Calamity quest will put you on Ulrika’s romance path. Unfortunately, finishing the Calamity quest won’t immediately gift you a kiss from the stunning, innocent lady. You still have to finish the following quests:

  • Trouble on the Cape (can only be accessed by unlocking the Scaly Invaders quest)
  • Home is Where the Heart is

Lastly, it’s important to note that you may miss your chance to romance Ulrika. The Readvent of Calamity will only be available for a limited time. Make sure to respond to it as soon as possible, as Ulrika won’t be available within the game if you don’t.

Hopefully, this guide has helped you capture the heart of either Wilhelmina or Ulrika.
