How to remove tarred debilitation in Dragon’s Dogma 2

If you’ve been tarred, it means your character is covered in oil. That’s because you can be inflamed if you’re attacked with a fire spell or arrow. To counter this debilitation, you’ll need a Wicking Remedy.

In order to craft this vial of medicine, you’ll need two Cinnamon Barks. Similar to Hill Beech Bark, you’ll collect it from trees. The best spot I’ve found so far is northwest of Vernworth. Run around to the thicker trees in the area, and you should see a bulging section on the trunk. You can collect multiple Cinnamon Barks from one tree. That would be enough to make at least one Wicking Remedy. Who knows? Maybe your pawn will help find some for you too.

Once you get tarred, use the Wicking Remedy in your inventory to flush the oil out. The game explains that it “has the curious effect of removing excess oils on the skin.” It will take up 0.10kg of storage and can be sold for 70G each.

Other medicines or potions you can make

While harvesting trees during the day, you can collect Hill Beech Bark. When combined, they create Parching Concoction, which cures the drenched debilitation. If you combine Dried Fruit and Morningtide (which is a pretty common pickup), you can make Fruit Roborant. It recovers a “great deal of health,” according to the game.

Can Cinnamon Bark be used for something else?

Cinnamon Bark is also used to enhance certain equipment in Dragon’s Dogma 2. You’ll need at least one of this resource to upgrade the Woodland Boots at any armory or blacksmith.
