Where To Find Griffin Locations

Griffin Locations Explained

Locating Griffin can be a pain for some players in Dragon’s Dogma 2. This is because there is no specific spot indicated by the game. Additionally, the game doesn’t offer you much in terms of guidance.

However, there are certain areas where you’ll have better luck finding Griffin. These Griffin locations are:

  • Areas with fields and livestock, like cows and Ox
  • Ox Trails where you’ll see convoys of Oxcarts
  • Near Griffin nests that you can find in high places and overlooks
  • Flying in the sky at random points.

So, be on the lookout for areas like these, and you should be able to find quite a few Griffin locations. Just make sure to keep an eye on the sky!

With that said, there are some specific areas on the map that tick these boxes. We’ll look at these areas next where you’ll likely have more luck finding some Griffin to fight.

Sooner or later, you’ll have a Griffin attack the oxcart or livestock. This is your chance to fight them! Speaking of oxcarts, you might be interested in completing the Phantom Oxcart Quest.

Dealing with Griffins Flying Away

One major issue that a lot of players deal with is Griffins flying away during battle. As a result, the effort that goes into locating Griffins can end up being wasted.

To deal with Griffins flying away, you’ll need to focus on setting their wings on fire. You can do this in a variety of ways, including using fire arrows or fire spells. When the wings are on fire, Griffins won’t be able to fly away.

You can use these opportunities to deal as much damage as possible! Be careful though, as Griffins can have really powerful attacks. Check out our Escape Grab Attacks guide to see how you can deal with their grab attacks!
