Vocation Tier List & Ranking


  • Trickster lacks damage, relying on illusions and buffing allies. Requires strong Pawns to carry the team’s damage.
  • Warfarer is a jack of all trades but suffers from limited Skills and the need to switch weapons to use them effectively.
  • Fighter is a useful starting Vocation, excelling with Shields but struggles with stamina management. Augments are key to improving performance.

Vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are exciting and intriguing to mess with. The game offers a variety of starting Vocations and some more advanced ones that unlock later. But, more advanced doesn’t necessarily mean better.

In Dragon’s Dogma 2, each Vocation feels unique and is shaped around a strong idea. You can customize your personal focus, and if you want specific skills around you but not for yourself, you can make your Pawn learn it, or find one that has what you need.



Dragon’s Dogma 2: Grand Riftstone Of Vermund’s Secret Treasure (Silver Rapier, Savant’s Boots, And Ferrystone)

Dragon’s Dogma 2 players can find Silver Rapier early in the game by discovering a secret treasure in the vicinity of Grand Riftstone of Vermund.

10 Trickster – C-Tier

Has no damage and desperately needs excellent Pawns

trickster vocation in draons dogma 2

Trickster has a strong idea as a Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2. However, the idea falls short when you realize Trickster doesn’t have any kind of damage or useful mechanics other than their illusions. To play Trickster properly, you have to ensure you’re playing with some top-tier Pawns that can carry the team’s damage.

Other than confusing opponents, Trickster can buff their allies, which gives them little control over the battlefield. Other than that, it feels like an unfinished Vocation that deserves the C-tier, since there’s nothing else to do other than watch.

9 Warfarer – C-Tier

Jack of all trades, master of none

warfarer vocation in draons dogma 2

Advertised as the jack of all trades, but in reality, it’s the master of none. Warfarer is supposedly a class that takes your favorite Vocation and puts them all in the same character. However, Warfarer suffers from the low amount of Skills you can equip when you build it. Even worse, Warfarer is forced to use a Skill to switch between weapons, which leaves them with only three open slots to equip Skills.

The Warfarer’s core problems continue since even after equipping Skills, you can’t use them until you switch and match the weapon with the Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2. There may be some combos you can use when playing as a Warfarer, but that doesn’t stop the Vocation from being a C-tier underwhelming class in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

8 Fighter – B-Tier

Useful if you solve their stamina issue

fighter vocation in draons dogma 2

Fighter is a decent starting Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2. They have unique mechanics by using Shields to block incoming attacks. However, since blocking attacks is a big part of the Vocation’s identity, Fighter suffers every time the situation gets overwhelming. Their suffering comes from their lack of Stamina, which is desperately needed for blocking and using Skills.


All the Ways to Increase Stamina in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Dealing with stamina in Dragon’s Dogma 2 can be really annoying –here’s how to get more.

Ironically, as a starter Vocation, you need to play, level up, and collect Augments from other Vocations to improve the Fighter’s troubles with Stamina. Underneath these troubles, there’s a very useful B-tier Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

7 Archer – B-Tier

Strong shots if they landed

At first glance, Archers seem too cool with their quick and precise shots. However, with all their great features, Archers suffer from many clunky mechanics that stop them from being higher than a B-tier Vocation.

Some of their clunky mechanics include hitting weak spots, which is a big part of Archers’ identity. They can’t shoot arrows or use their Skills without aiming down their Bow and following a moving target, especially if it’s fast. This prevents most Archer’s hits from landing on weak spots, and sometimes not landing at all. Not to mention, you have to work for their arrows that are related to their best Skills.

6 Warrior – A-Tier

Can inflict as much damage as they can take

warrior vocation in draons dogma 2

Warrior is a melee Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2 that performs well offensively and defensively. Since they wield the largest weapons in the game, it’s only fair they’re the best at knocking down bosses while tanking so much damage without getting knocked down.

Since they’re good at tanking, Warrior is good at drawing aggro toward them and that helps their team to breathe and focus on their own stuff without getting attacked. The downside of the Warrior Vocation is their lack of mobility during combat. Most of the time, they feel too heavy to move and too slow to hit. When you want to tank your way through your foes, there’s no better than an A-tier Vocation like the Warrior to do so in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

5 Sorcerer – A-Tier

Game-breaking AoE attacks

sorcerer vocation in draons dogma 2

Sorcerer is the best AoE DPS in Dragon’s Dogma 2, since the amount of area damage this Vocation can cause is insane. Not only AoE, but Sorcerer is also able to deal massive damage to big enemies and bosses since they will fill the radius of most attacks.

While they’re so strong, Sorcerer suffers from some limitations that hinder their damage and stop them from being an S-tier Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Their cast timing is horrendously long, and they go through a lot of using and recharging Stamina during combat. Most of the time in battle, the Sorcerer will just be standing, either recharging Stamina or casting their Spell. These limitations are apparent and stop Sorcerer from going higher than the A-tier rank in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

4 Magick Archer – S-Tier

A much better Archer

The Magick Archer Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2 has all the cool features the Archer has without any of its limitations and downsides. In fact, Magick Archer has access to some of the most unique Skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Just like Mages and Sorcerers, Magick Archer can manipulate the elements with their Bows and Arrows. They can also detect and aim at enemies’ weak spots automatically, which can cause great damage at times.

Magick Archer doesn’t only excel in offensive playstyle, they’re also decent at playing a Supportive role. You can build a Magick Archer to heal and revive Pawns from a safe distance while dealing damage. A hybrid Vocation that can control every aspect of every battle like the Magick Archer deserves to sit on top with other S-tier Vocations.

3 Thief – S-Tier

Fast, strong, and sneaky

If you enjoy dealing tons of damage while not getting hit, then the Thief Vocation is for you. Thieves are quick and brutal when it comes to pure DPS in Dragon’s Dogma 2. No other class can cause the single target damage Thieves can unleash upon their foes.


Dragon’s Dogma 2: Best Weapons For Thieves (& Where To Find Them)

Thieves may excel in performing fancy trickery and delivering swift blows, but they still need proper weapons to defeat bosses in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

What makes Thief special as a Vocation is their ability to sneak and dash away from enemies’ hits. Not to mention, if they ended up climbing next to a monster’s weak point, that monster would be deleted shortly after. All that damage deserves the S-tier rank for the best Vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

2 Mage – S-Tier

Best Supporting Vocation, but preferably not for Arisen

mage vocation in draons dogma 2

Mages are excellent Supporting units in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Their combat style ranges from offensive to Supportive skills, but they excel at helping their team far better. They’re so good, that almost every team in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is running a Mage Pawn.


Dragon’s Dogma 2: Best Weapons For Mages (& Where To Find Them)

Finding the best Staff for your Mage Arisen or main Pawn is the first step to creating the ultimate Support in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

While a Mage in every party is essential, it should be a Pawn who runs the Vocation since their Skills are too focused on cleansing and healing, unless you prefer Supporting from the backlines. Still, whether it’s the Arisen or one of their Pawns running a Mage, it’s an S-tier Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

1 Mystic Spearhand – S-Tier

A very offensive Vocation with a sprinkle of Supportive Skills

mystic spearhand vocation in draons dogma 2

Mystic Spearhand has it all regarding combat in Dragon’s Dogma 2. They’re incredible at controlling enemies with their Bolts and moving around with their dashes and instant teleportations. There’s nothing negative to say about Mystic Spearhand other than it doesn’t apply to Pawns.

Mystic Spearhand can move in and out of combat with no issues or heavy usage of Stamina. They can quickly dash to an enemy with their Skills or instantly after hitting them with a bolt. Add shielding themselves and their allies, and you have an S-tier Vocation who can control the battlefield with ease.
