Rift Stone is an environmental object found in Dragon's Dogma.

"Well met, Arisen. Can you hear our voice?"


Rift Stones are portals that only the Arisen can use to access the pawn network known as The Rift. These stones are scattered all across Gransys and allow the Arisen to refine searches for pawns.

The Arisen's first significant interaction with a rift stone forms part of the quest Call of the Arisen.

Starfall Bay rift stone

  • Time in the Rift and the rest of the world are not connected, so no matter how much time is spent in the Rift, the outside world will remain unchanged.
    • Entering and exiting the rift through a rift stone will sometimes cause minor changes in the world, such as creatures reappearing.
  • When an Arisen's Main Pawn dies and returns to the rift, touching a Rift Stone will revive and retrieve it.
  • Standing next to a Rift Stone will fully heal the Arisen's pawns and restore stamina. Entering a Rift Stone will clear all debilitations from the party.
  • There is a special Rift Stone that appears in Starfall Bay during New Game Plus, which will transport the Arisen and their party directly to the Chamber of Lament in The Everfall where the Ur-Dragon awaits those brave enough to face it.
  • Rift Stones can gradually decay, as the From A Different Sky questline states on the Badge of Vows the Arisen collects: "Rift Stones eroded by time".
  • Once a broken Rift Stone is repaired, the Arisen will not have to do so again upon subsequent visits, even in New Game Plus.
  • Repairing a broken Rift Stone creates an autosave point which can be returned to by choosing to Retry upon death or by loading your game after choosing to quit without saving.
  • Rift Stones can also be used to establish a checkpoint save for the player to return to.
