Dragon’s Dogma 2 forgery and scrap store location guide

Here's where to find the scrap store in Dragon's Dogma 2, plus expert info on the forgery system and how to duplicate items for a price.

Dragon's Dogma 2 forgery: the scrap store owner.

How do you create a Dragon’s Dogma 2 forgery? While venturing across Vermund en route to the Battahl region, you’ll pass through the Checkpoint Rest Town, where you’ll come across several new quests and the suspicious scrap store. The store’s primary function is to forge duplicates of items you already own, which will be familiar to anyone who visited the original game’s Black Cat shop.

The many Dragon’s Dogma 2 quests and mechanics can be fairly obtuse, so I’d recommend checking out our breakdown of every Dragon’s Dogma 2 vocation, plus our guide to the DD2 map and various explorable regions therein. Now, let’s delve into the nefarious world of Dragon’s Dogma 2 counterfeits.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 scrap store location

To create a forgery, you’ll first need to visit the scrap store situated in the Checkpoint Rest Town west of Vernworth. You’ll venture through this area during the main questline on your way to the game’s second major region: Battahl. That said, you can make the trip to the scrap store as soon as you gain access to the open world, but I’d say there’s no real cause to rush there immediately.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 forgeries explained

Once you talk to the store’s owner, you’ll get a tutorial pop-up that details the game’s forgery system. You simply need to bring the owner an item, pay a set fee that varies wildly from item to item, and then wait roughly one in-game day for him to create your duplicate.

Unfortunately, it’s not as foolproof a system as it may first appear. You see, while the scrap store owner can create duplicates of almost anything you bring him – including quest items – they may not always carry the same effect or magical properties of the real deal.

While I haven’t attempted to duplicate every item in Dragon’s Dogma 2, I can admit to having lost several thousand gold trying to duplicate Seeker’s Tokens and magical items like Ferrystones. Yes, your shiny new Ferrystone may look the part, but the fake will always be a dud. The same is true of quest items with magical properties, which can lead to awkward situations in cases like the Jadeite Orb quest, where you’re tasked with finding a stolen valuable and bringing it to one of two parties for a reward. You can duplicate the quest item and receive two rewards – just be careful about who you deliver the fake to.

Generally speaking, the forgery system’s primary use is for cases like the quest mentioned above where duplicating items can lead to extra rewards, but it’s also a great system for duplicating rarer late-game upgrade materials for a fair sum. If you know you need several of a specific material, be sure to keep one back in order to duplicate it.

Now that you’ve jumped headfirst into the game’s criminal underbelly and returned all the richer, you should probably invest some of those illicit earnings into one of Dragons’s Dogma 2’s houses. We’ve also got a huge Dragon’s Dogma 2 guide for beginners featuring expert tips we wish we’d known before we started.
