To do this, head over to the village of Melve during the “In Dragon’s Wake” main quest, complete the “Monster Culling” main quest, wait a few days, return to Melve, and talk to Sigurd after defending the village from a dragon attack.

However, finding him at Melve is the simplest method as it has you following the main questline in Dragon’s Dogma 2, and you can do it relatively early on.

Best Mystic Spearhand Weapon Skills

The best Weapon Skills for the Mystic Spearhand Vocation to use are Dragoun’s Stabbe, Humble Offringe, Seching Blade, and Mirour Vesture. These can all be unlocked in the first few ranks and have more powerful versions you can upgrade to: Dragoun’s Foin, Devout Offringe, Seching Storm, and Mirour Shelde.

Despite being your starting skill, Dragoun’s Stabbe is an incredibly useful ability. Not only is it a good traversal tool, as it sees you shoot up into the sky, but it also makes you effective against flying targets. Of course, it can be used against regular enemies as well and will deal a lot of damage if you manage to land it.

Humble Offringe is a worthwhile Weapon Skill, if only for the sheer joy it provides. This sees you levitate objects around you and use them as projectiles. That is, in and of itself, quite useful. However, you can also use it to levitate enemies, making them vulnerable to attacks before then slamming them to the ground.

Seching Blade is a great way to deal passive damage, as well as ensure you’re protected from incoming enemies. It summons a number of magickal blades that follow you around before being automatically flung at a nearby enemy. It’s a particularly useful defensive tool, and its upgraded version is incredibly powerful.

Finally, Mirour Vesture turns your Mystic Spearhand Vocation into a support class, as it creates barriers around you and your allies that negate any attacks. While they don’t last long, it’s a great way to allow you and your Pawns to regroup if you’re taking too much damage.

Best Mystic Spearhand Core Skills and Augments

The best Core Skills for the Mystic Spearhand Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are Quik Fot and Winding Cut. The best Augments are Polarity and Athleticism. While these are slightly harder to obtain than other Core and Augment Skills, they’re absolutely worth getting.

Quik Fot allows you to dash towards an enemy that’s been hit by either Forbeding Bolt or Scatering Bolt, essentially allowing you to stun them and then immediately follow up with a deadly attack. Winding Cut sees you spin in a circle with your spear, dealing a lot of damage to nearby enemies. It’s perfect for when you’re overwhelmed. Polarity increases your strength during the day and Magick at night, making it a necessary Augment.
