Categories: Dragon’s Dogma 2 Vocations
Players in Dragon’s Dogma 2 can eventually choose from nine vocations in three categories. However, your journey begins by selecting your Starting Vocation – in other words, your starting class. Players can eventually transition into Advanced vocations and even Hybrid vocations later on.
Dragon’s Dogma 2 Starting Vocations
These basic vocations or character classes in Dragon’s Dogma 2 should feel very familiar to those who have experienced the previous game. With a mix of melee combat, range combat, and magic there are plenty of powerful options here for both the player character and their Pawns.
The four possible starting vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are:
1. Fighter Vocation
The Fighter vocation is your basic melee combat specialist focused on physical damage while wielding a one handed sword and shield. Fighters can slice through enemy ranks and deliver powerful blows, while also using their shields to protect themselves and their party.
The Fighter vocation has access to the following skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2:
2. Thief Vocation
The Thief attacks with deadly speed, dealing rapid and consecutive strikes with daggers in both hands while exhibiting outstanding mobility. They quickly step away after striking, exploit openings to cling onto enemies, and inflict heavy damage. The Thief Vocation can also steal items from NPCs and enemies.
The Thief has access to the following skills:
3. Archer Vocation
Archers in Dragon’s Dogma 2 specializes in long-range attacks using a bow and arrow. They perform their attacks from afar and can target enemies in high positions. In addition, they are essential in supporting the frontline. For example, by targeting enemy weaknesses, they can create opportunities for your allies to strike.
The Archer Vocation has access to the following skills:
4. Mage Vocation
The Mage uses support spells to improve their party in various ways: from launching magick attacks, offering enchantments that bolster their party members’ weapons, to casting healing spells. The more advanced and powerful the magick is, the longer the incantation time will be. The mage will be a well balanced vocation for both players and their Pawn’s in order to make the mull party more effective.
The Mage Vocation can use the following skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2.
Players can eventually upgrade their Arisen character and Pawn into two possible Advanced vocations: the Warrior and the Sorcerer unlocking even more powerful abilities.
The Warrior is an advanced vocation that boasts a robust physique specializing in direct combat, with the strength to endure enemy counterattacks. Warriors are masters of two-handed weapons such as the greatsword and the hammer. The strike that is unleashed after charging power and identifying an opening, is among the most powerful attacks of all vocations.
The Warrior Vocation can use the following skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2:
The Sorcerer is an advanced vocation completely specialized in various magick attacks. Their magick is conjured with both hands through a large staff, and can change the tide of battle at any given opportunity. As their magick spells take longer to cast, it is key for the Sorcerer to find a safe place and determine the correct moment to strike.
A hybrid class in Dragon’s Dogma 2, also called vocations, can deal massive damage using combinations of melee or ranged weapons with magic.
Available only to the Arisen, the Magick Archer hybrid class excels in long-range combat with their magickal arrows. Multiple arrows can be used in combat, but Magick Archers are also adept at supporting their allies. They can learn a custom skill that unleashes a devastating attack over a wide area, in exchange for reducing their own maximum HP.
The Mystic Spearhand, a vocation exclusive to the Arisen character, combines melee and magick, making them a well-balanced vocation that is effective from any range. The Mystic Spearhand is a master of their unique weapon, the Duospear. Using magick, they can paralyze enemies or hurl multiple objects at them.
One of the most unique new vocations exclusive to the Arisen, the Trickster can conjure illusions through the smoke created by its unique weapon, the Censer. Tricksters can use illusions to deceive enemies into fighting against their own. They also have the ability to temporarily increase the power of Pawns beyond their limits. A brand new vocation Dragon’s Dogma series, the Trickster is a Hybrid vocation that focuses on support spells and looks like a blast to play!
The Trickster Vocation can use the following skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2:
- Effigial Incense
- Bevieling Fumes
- Illusive Divider
- Suffocating Shroud
- Aromatic Resurgence
- Dragon’s Delusion
