No more naps; what potion cures Sleep in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

To awaken your Arisen from their slumber in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you’ll need to create Waking Powder. To craft a Waking Powder potion, find two Grandpetals and mix them together.

You’ll find Grandpetals from yellow bushes within the forests of Dragon’s Dogma 2. I found a few of these resources north of Timeworn Shaft and northeast of Vernworth. It’s a fairly common material to find in this area, so you should be able to find Grandpetals fairly easily.

By the way, don’t confuse the Sleep status effect with simply being Unconscious. You’ll need a Sobering Tonic to resolve the unconscious debilitation, caused by lightning and blunt attacks. If you’re tarred, a Wicking Remedy should do the trick.

Can you buy Waking Powder?

If you’re getting exceedingly bad luck finding Grandpetals, you can buy Waking Powder from Philbert’s Sundries for 400G. It’s located in Vernworth‘s Merchant Quarter. It’s standing next to Bjorn’s Armory and close to Roderick’s Smithy. Philbert only has nine of them in stock, however.

Does Dragon’s Dogma 2 have sleep resistance?

You can certainly reduce the likeliness of being afflicted with Sleep by equipping the right equipment. For example, you can get 2% more sleep resistance by wearing the Devotee’s Hood. It’s 6400G from Bjorn’s Armory in Vernworth. It will likely improve your defense, magick defense, and knockdown resistance, too, depending on what your character is wearing.

As you proceed through the game, your sleep resistance will likely increase with better armor available to be bought from future shops or found through looted chests.
