Dragon’s Dogma 2: Full Warrior Vocation Guide

The Warrior Vocation is an advanced version of the Fighter in Dragon’s Dogma 2, boasting greater attack and the ability to wield fearsome greatswords and hammers.

One of the first Advanced Vocations that you can unlock in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the Warrior. This is the perfect next step for those who prefer the Fighter, as it puts a greater focus on melee combat, allowing you to strike your foes with devastating blows. If you’re considering switching to the Warrior, then you’ll need to know the best Weapon Skills, Armor, and more. Fortunately, we’ve got all that covered below.

How to Unlock Warrior Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To unlock the Warrior Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2, you must give a greatsword to Klaus in the Vernworth Vocation Guild. The easiest way to do this is to complete the Vocation Frustration quest given by Klaus.

To complete this mission, simply speak to Klaus, then head to Roderick’s Smithy to get the location of Trevo Mine. Head to the Mine and clear it of Goblins. Once you’ve entered the mine, climb the rocks on the right near the entrance, head down the path, and search the pile of junk next to the door on the right. To streamline the process, we’ve broken down the steps below:

  • Speak to Klaus at Vernworth Vocation Guild to start the quest Vocation Frustration
  • Head to Roderick’s Smithy
  • Speak to the owner to get the location of Trevo Mine on your map
  • Head to Trevo Mine
  • Enter the Mine and follow the path until you see rock steps on your right
  • Climb the steps and follow the next path
  • When you reach a door on your right, look for a pile of junk near it
  • Search the pile twice to find the greatsword
  • Head back to Vernworth Vocation Guild and talk to Klaus
  • Pay 150 DCP to switch to the Warrior Vocation

It’s worth noting that the main mission, Monster Culling, also takes you to Trevo Mine. So, it’s worth speaking to Captain Brand before heading there in order to complete both quests at the same time. If you switch to the Warrior Vocation, you’ll have this starting gear:

  • Weapon – Two-Hander – War Blade
  • Head Armor – Gladiator’s Helm
  • Body Armor – Tribal Brace – Intrepid Scalecoat
  • Leg Armor – Traveler’s Gaiters – Bandit Greaves

Best Warrior Weapon Skills

The best Weapon Skills for the Warrior Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are Skyward Sunder, Rending Sweep, Revivify, and Knoll Breaker. These are mostly easy to obtain, and can be upgraded into the following skills: Heavenward Sunder, Razing Sweep, Inspirit, and Mountain Breaker.

Skyward Sunder is a powerful attack that sees you leap into the air and slash upwards. It’s perfect for knocking flying enemies out of the air, making the Warrior a far more versatile Vocation, especially if you don’t have an Archer in your party.

Razing Sweep is a great Weapon Skill that sees you spin around in a circle, hitting any enemies that are nearby. It’s perfect for getting out of tricky situations where you find yourself overwhelmed with enemies and also acts as a great way to damage multiple foes at once.

Revivify is a necessary Weapon Skill, as it will cure you of the following debilitations: caught fire, frostbite, sleep, silence, and unconscious. You’ll regret not having this skill handy, as it will ensure you don’t die due to a frustrating debilitation.

Finally, Knoll Breaker will serve as your powerful single-target attack. It will knock anything it hits to the ground, stunning them and leaving them vulnerable to your basic attacks. It’s incredibly deadly, especially when utilized against smaller enemies.

Best Warrior Core Skills and Augments

The best Warrior Core Skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2 are Barge and Repulse. The best Augments are Vitality, Impact, and Intrepidity. You’ll be able to unlock these fairly early on, and will improve your offensive and defensive capabilities.

Barge is a powerful attack that sees you rush towards your foes and tackle them to the ground. It’s particularly useful when combined with the Dominance Augment. Repulse is going to be your main defensive technique, as it allows you to use a charged attack as a parry. Vitality, as it sounds, increases your health. Impact, on the other hand, improves your ability to push enemies when grabbing onto them. Finally, Intrepidity reduces how much of the loss gauge you gain when taking damage.
