Dragon’s Dogma 2 Sorcerer Vocation Guide

In addition to the basic vocations (Mage, Archer, Fighter, and Thief), in Dragon's Dogma 2, there are also six other vocations to choose from: two advanced and four hybrid. In this Dragon's Dogma 2 Sorcerer vocation guide, therefore, we will tell you everything you need to know to make the best use of this class and to understand if it is actually the right one for you.


Dragon's Dogma 2 Sorcerer Overview

The Sorcerer is basically a more powerful version of the Mage. If you have decided to start the game by choosing that vocation, the next step is certainly to consider the Sorcerer to make your power even greater. In fact, even at a gameplay level, the two classes are quite similar and you will have to take more or less the same things into consideration.

Anyway, this Dragon's Dogma 2 vocation is perfect for dealing a lot of damage to your opponents. You have the opportunity to attack enemies from afar using different spells and abilities, which, when combined, can be truly catastrophic. However, when it comes to supporting allies, this class is certainly not the best choice. It isn't as advanced support as you might think, but it is more focused on dealing damage.

Consequently, we can say that the Dragon's Dogma 2 Sorcerer vocation is perfect for all those who do not like hand-to-hand combat and therefore prefer a more ranged approach to combat. This does not mean, however, that those who choose to use this class are not capable of dealing massive damage.

The thing you have to consider, however, is that spells take time to cast, so you have to calculate the times well, because in that period of time you will be totally devoid of any type of protection, you will have to rely only on your companions. Furthermore, even though you will be fighting from afar, this certainly doesn't mean that you shouldn't still move around the battlefield.

How to Play Sorcerer in Dragon's Dogma 2

The first thing to understand and take into consideration, as we have already mentioned previously, are the times that the Sorcerer needs to use his spells. The stronger the spells, the longer it will take to use them. As a result, during this time, you will be vulnerable to enemy attacks, so it is very important to have excellent timing.

To overcome this problem, our advice is to have companions with you who are part of Dragon's Dogma 2 vocations based on melee, so as to have someone who can distract the enemies while you are busy launching your spells. Don't underestimate this aspect; otherwise, it will be really difficult to get the upper hand in certain battles in the game.

Another thing you should take into consideration is your position on the battlefield. Like the Mage, the Sorcerer is also able to levitate and move around the battlefield. This is a very important feature because it allows you to move to increasingly better positions, from which you can stay relatively safe.

However, be careful not to stay in the same position for too long. The enemies will understand where you are and will try to track you down to attack you. Consequently, our advice is to move on the battlefield quite often, perhaps following a strategy that can be effective at that specific moment of the fight. With this Dragon's Dogma 2 vocation, more than ever, you have to be strategic.

Being essentially a sorcerer, the Sorcerer has spells in his arsenal that are capable of inflicting elemental damage on opponents. This is definitely a very useful thing to use throughout your adventure in Dragon's Dogma 2, as there will be many enemies vulnerable to one element rather than another. So, even in this case, we remind you once again that studying your opponent and having a strategy are fundamental.

Dragon's Dogma 2 Sorcerer Skills

As in any self-respecting game of the genre, even in Dragon's Dogma 2, there are skills to choose from to make your gameplay always different. Specifically, in Dragon's Dogma 2, there are three different categories of skills: Weapon Skills, Core Skills, and Augments. Let's see together in detail what they are about.

Weapon Skills

They are basically the skills related to your class. This means that, whatever your class is, there will be different abilities for that specific weapon. So, even if you use the same weapon, you will not have access to the skills that are available for the other Dragon's Dogma 2 vocations.

  • Prescient Flare
  • Spellhold
  • High Flagration: An advanced form of Flagration that unleashes a more powerful jet of flame.
  • Levin: Strikes an enemy from above with tongues of lightning. Can summon additional lightning bolts by consuming Stamina.
