Dragon’s Dogma 2 Guide: How to Raise Affinity with Vendors and Merchants to Maximum

In Dragon’s Dogma 2 you may want to raise affinity with vendors and merchants. You could even establish a rapport with the lowly Oxcart Driver. Raising Affinity to the maximum possible level is a matter of paying attention to the details. Let’s get the lowdown on how to do that and what to look for.


Giving gifts can be accomplished by interacting with any given vendor and merchant, and selecting “Give Gift” down in the bottom right. While you can give them just about anything that is giftable, you will want to carefully judge which items may appeal to them.

Giftable Items

In Dragon’s Dogma 2, the gifts for vendors and merchants themselves indicate whom they are meant to be gifted to, so you won’t necessarily have to rely on instinct there. Also note that items decay in Dragon’s Dogma 2. So, a giftable item might become useless once they dry out, wasting their potential for raising Affinity.

Limitations And Notes

There’s a strict one gift per vendor or merchant per day limit in place. This is obviously to prevent rapid affinity leveling with them to the point where it becomes routine and boring. There will come a point when Affinity can be raised no further, and that will be indicated by the player character receiving a gift themselves (like vendors may slash their prices.)

And that’s about all there is to raising your character’s Affinity with merchants and vendors in Dragon’s Dogma 2.
