Dragon’s Dogma 2 Fighter Vocation Guide

In Dragon's Dogma 2, you will have the opportunity to choose between four different classes at the start of the game, including the Fighter. In this Dragon's Dogma 2 Fighter vocation guide, therefore, we will tell you everything you need to know about this class, so that you can decide independently whether to begin your adventure as the Arisen with this class or opt for another.

Dragon's Dogma 2 Fighter Overview

This class, as can be seen from the name, is suitable for all those who want to be the center of attention and have the possibility of fighting against multiple enemies at the same time. Consequently, if you love action and don't want to adopt fighting styles that are too stealthy or rely on magic, the Fighter is definitely the best choice for you.

This Dragon's Dogma 2 vocation is perfect for having an offensive-focused way of playing, as it is able to take little damage in order to give others the opportunity to support you without running into problems. However, keep in mind that you will certainly not be a flash; the Fighter's movements are much slower than those of the other classes.

In case being in the center of the battlefield and keeping the enemies busy while the others implement their best strategies is not your way of playing, you can always opt to hire a Pawn who has this vocation. By doing so, you will always have a companion who can help you in the most difficult moments that you will have to face during your adventure in Dragon's Dogma 2.

How to Play Fighter in Dragon's Dogma 2

To ensure the Fighter is able to take many hits without his health bar being affected much, the use of the shield is essential. This item is essential for blocking enemy attacks and ensuring greater protection for your character. If the Fighter is protected, the rest of the team will also be protected. Your task, ultimately, is to also suffer the damage that should be directed at your companions.

As for the damage itself, this Dragon's Dogma 2 vocation is certainly not the best when it comes to damage per second. The damage inflicted by the Fighter is moderate and he will never kill enemies with a single shot. However, you can make use of certain skills that can increase your capabilities and make you more efficient.

As we said previously, the shield is a fundamental aspect of the Fighter's gameplay. With it, you will be able to not only protect yourself but also charge enemies to make them lose balance. Furthermore, even in this case, there are some very useful skills that could make your way of playing even more interesting and effective.

Dragon's Dogma 2 Fighter Skills

As in any self-respecting action RPG, also in Dragon's Dogma 2, there are skills that you can draw on to make your way of playing better and to get the better of your enemies. In Dragon's Dogma 2, skills are divided into three different categories: Weapon Skills, Core Skills, and Augments. Let's see together in detail what it is.
