Does Height and Weight Choice Matter in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Simply put – yes, both of these matter. A taller character will be able to run more quickly and they have a slightly bigger reach with their weapons, while shorter characters have smaller hitboxes. As for weight, heavier characters can carry more, though they will also have slower stamina regen. Lighter characters regenerate stamina at a faster rate, and they don’t use as much of it in their actions.

So while all of this will impact your character, the effect isn’t as drastic as it may seem at first. It will provide some advantages (or disadvantages) at first, though you can quickly get over this with the right selection of gear and Pawns.

This all depends on what sort of character you want to make. A taller and heavier character makes for a great melee fighter, while a lighter one is better suited for a thief. But if you are looking for a great all-around character build, then the upper end of the avarege height and bottom of the heavy range should get you the most optimal results. But again, there’s no reason to overthink this. Simply select the height and size that you think best represent the sort of character you want to play.
