How to Revive the Dead in Dragon’s Dogma 2

The only way to revive or resurrect the dead in Dragon’s Dogma 2 that we know of is to use a Wakestone. These items are very few and far between. In our playthrough so far, we’ve only gotten two, and that was at the end of the main quest called Disa’s Plot. I’m sure that there are other ways to obtain these, possibly even craft them, too. However, we haven’t gotten that far in the game just yet. If you’ve managed to figure out any way to get your hands on more Wakestones, by all means, let everyone know in the comments. The point is, without this item, you cannot raise the dead, which is going to lock you out of some stuff. Use them sparingly.

Another thing you need to know if you’re trying to resurrect the dead in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is that a civilian who kicks the bucket will be taken to a mortuary a few days after death. These include places like Vermund’s charnel house or Battahl’s morgue, and they go to the place closest to where they died. And as long as you have access to the corpse and a Wakestone in the inventory, you can bring them back to life. When you do this for the first time, you’ll get the achievement called “The Savior.” As far as who you should resurrect, I can’t give you any good advice. There’s no way to tell if one civilian is more important than the other, if there is any difference at all. We’ll add more info as we find it.
