Dragon's Dogma Wiki

Weapons have a Level Requirement (Lvl.Req.) which is the minimum Character Level with which it can be equipped and used with out penalty.


Weapon Level Requirement

In-game warning about insufficient level for using the weapon.

Using a weapon with a level requirement higher than the equipper's Character Level results in increased stamina use for Skill use, Running, Climbing, together with reduced stamina regeneration. Additionally weapon Core Skills will start to use stamina.

The game warns the player when attempting to equip the weapon unsuitable for his level. Sadly, only once.

In general it is unlikely that the party will find or acquire any weapons with level requirement above their level during the main quest line of Dragon's Dogma.
