How to Change Your Vocation (Class) in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Player chooses their Arisen in Dragon's Dogma 2

If you created your Arisen prior to the release of Dragon’s Dogma 2, there’s a good chance you want to change your vocation in the full game. Stick around for everything you need to know to make the switch.

From the start of your Dragon’s Dogma 2 playthrough, your vocation is the deciding factor when it comes to your offensive capabilities and unique skills. In some cases, specific vocations will even have the upper hand in completing quests, just as the Archer and Warfarer boast an advantage in solving the Sphinx’s final riddle. With this in mind, you might want to change your vocation down the line, especially if you created your Arisen with the game’s character creation demo or unlocked new Advanced Vocations in the game. No matter the reason, here’s how to change your vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

When Can You Change Your Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

When you create your Arisen at the start of Dragon’s Dogma 2, you can choose between four vocations. These include Mage, Thief, Archer, and Fighter. As you progress through the game, however, you can unlock an additional six. Whether you feel you made a bad call to begin with or want to try out a new vocation later on, you can make the switch once you reach Vernworth.

How Do You Change Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

Upon your arrival in Vernworth, you can change your vocation by heading over to the Vocation Guild. Not exactly subtle, I know. In any case, this makes it easy to get started. Just head south from the town square, then speak with Klaus inside the guild.

There are a few different directives to choose from during your conversation, including Change Vocation. If you’re looking to switch things up early on, you can easily pick up a different starter vocation from here. Once you’ve unlocked new vocations, though, you can head back to the guild here or any other Vocation Guild on the map to change again.

It will cost you 100 DSP to swap for a starter vocation, but those classified as advanced are a bit more expensive at 150 DSP. This stacks with a fee, which applies to both you and your Pawn. Fortunately, you can rack up DSP as you defeat enemies, so it shouldn’t be too tough to gather enough. Once you choose a new vocation, Klaus will send you off with some new gear that complements your class.
