Both will help you increase your combat efficiency, including survivability and damage output.

It’s important to know that you can change your actively equipped skills at any campfire if you have a camping kit. You can obtain a camping kit by purchasing it from merchants, or, if you are lucky, you may find one in the world. However, it’s worth noting that you cannot unlock new skills or change your vocation at campfires.

Should you play Warfarer Vocation (Class) in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

Warfarer is an excellent choice for players who want to have freedom and try multiple skills or weapons from all playstyles. The vocation deals significant damage and has a freedom that allows them to use the best weapon for specific scenarios. It also can adapt to the team’s needs.

However, mastering this vocation may require a certain level of expertise and game knowledge since it involves complex build-crafting. While seasoned players will undoubtedly enjoy the challenge of creating their own unique builds, beginners may find it a bit overwhelming. They may want to wait until they have more experience before using this class.

Important: When you level up as a Warfarer, all of your other vocations also level up, making it the best strategy for quickly leveling up with multiple classes, weapon skills, or augments.

Additionally, You can’t use Warfarer class for your Pawn. If you want your Pawn to learn an advanced vocation, consider Warrior or Sorcerer.

Gameplay: As a Warfarer, players can learn different skills from each vocation, granting them adaptability and versatility in combat.

Weapon Freedom and Versatile: The Warfarer vocation offers unusual weapon freedom, allowing players to wield various weapons, including swords, axes, maces, bows, staffs, and more. Players can adapt to different combat scenarios by using a variety of weapons and combinations. This flexibility caters to diverse playstyles and combat preferences. For example, if you deal with flying creatures, the bow would be a better choice, and when fighting gigantic monster bosses, a high-damage two-handed weapon might be more effective.

Damage: While the Warfarer has remarkable versatility and adaptability, its lower base stats may result in slightly lower overall effectiveness than more specialized vocations. Despite this drawback, Warfarers can maximize their combat effectiveness by utilizing the situational strengths of different weapon types. With this vocation you can craft unique and personalized builds created to your preferred playstyle. However, due to its complexity and reliance on player knowledge of game mechanics, the Warfarer vocation may not be the most beginner-friendly choice.

Warfarer Skills and Augments

Just like all vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2, Archer has access to three types of skills:

  • Weapon Skills: Vocation-dependent weapon skills refer to specialized weapon techniques that may differ among various vocations, even if they share the same weapons. ( As such, it is crucial to understand the weapon skills available to your vocation to optimize your combat abilities.) These skills can be executed by pressing the related weapon skill button.
  • Core Skills: Skills that are dependent on a specific weapon can be used by any vocation that has access to it. These skills are performed by pressing the light and heavy attack buttons in a specific order.
  • Augments: Passive trait buffs are earned when leveling a specific vocation. Once unlocked, the augment can be used regardless of the character’s vocation.

As you can see, some of those skills are passive boosts, and some are active abilities you will use in combat to deal damage and sometimes control the battlefield.

In Dragon’s Dogma 2, you can simultaneously have only a few skills per category active. With ranks, you unlock more of them by using specific vocations in combat as you level up. Some of the abilities listed below might not be available to you from the start.
