Dragon’s Dogma has been one of the most overlooked RPGs in the last decade. It is often forgotten about when people discuss games of this genre.
It is easy to forget, but it is fun for those who do. This is largely due to the variety of classes that offer different play styles for each profession and the many builds that you can try. Which is the best? Although this is subjective, I tried to give it a try. I considered the class’s strength, how much fun it was to play, and potential replay value when choosing the best classes.
This is our opinion on Dragon’s Dogma’s best class.
The Strider class was my first in Dragon’s Dogma. The Strider build is great if you like to combine ranged skills and swift melee attacks.
Although the Strider’s abilities are quite standard, there are some really cool ones and some great light armor sets. The Mad Dash allows you to move quickly around a battle and the Ensare traps smaller enemies to make it easier to kill Direwolves or Hellhounds. The Double Vaul skill makes it easier to scale heights and much more enjoyable.
The Brain Splitter skill is a powerful move in the game. This upgrade to the Helm Splitter attack is required to use it. The Strider is easily a contender to be the best class of Dragon’s Dogma.
The Fighter class is versatile and offers many skills. This vocation is for you if you want your Arisen to be both offensive and defensively strong.
Although you won’t be able to move as fast or as quickly as an Assassin or Strider, you will not be as heavy as a Warrior. Additionally, you will be able to block attacks rather than dodge and evade them. The shield that a Fighter can use is actually one of its greatest attributes.
You can also tank using skills such as Shield Summons. This will attract all enemies to you and allow your pawn friends to take them out. You can also use your shield to attack your opponent’s defense and do damage with Shield strike.
You will also have great offensive skills, such as the Full Moon Slash which can deal damage to multiple enemies simultaneously, and the Dragon’s Maw which is a powerful, fast sword slash with high knockdown powers.
The Fighter is easily one of Dragon’s Dogma’s most popular classes, especially when you consider the fact that it has some of the best-looking armor sets in the game.
3. Mystic Knight
You can play as a Mystic knight and combine your magical and physical skills. You have the option to either get close to your enemy or to keep them at a distance in order to perform devastating magic attacks. It is one of three hybrid vocations found in Dragon’s Dogma. This means that it is a combination from two classes. Magick Archer, and Assassin are the other hybrids.
The best thing about the Mystic Knight, is your ability to adapt to any enemy and take on a new role when necessary.
The Great Cannon skill is powerful for the Mystic Knight. When it is hit, it creates a magical orb which spawns homing missiles that can be used against enemies. Combine this with Perilous Signil and your enemies will be in great trouble.
You can also learn Holy Fortress and Abyssal anguish. The Mystic Knight, regardless of what build you choose is a strong contender for Dragon’s Dogma’s best class.
2. Magick Archer
Although it can be slow to get used to the Magick Archer role, once you are comfortable with it it will become one of the most enjoyable classes to play. This role will allow you to keep your distance from enemies, but also give you the ability to choose whether to attack or support them.
Magick Archer has many different abilities, making it a unique style for MMOs. The downside is that there are so many skills to choose from it’s easy to become choice paralysis.
Ricochet Hunteris an excellent skill. It fires a lightning bolt capable of hitting obstacles up to 20 times. The bolt’s damage increases with each ricochet. The Great Ward Arrow grants powerful buffs to both the Arisen as well as his pawns and can make the difference between victory or defeat.
You can also use the Immolationskill to melt your enemies into oblivion. The Magick Archer is without a doubt one of Dragon’s Dogma’s most valuable classes.
The Sorcerer is my favorite class in Dragon’s Dogma. This opinion isn’t controversial. It’s not difficult to see why many people enjoy playing as Sorcerers.
You will only be able to influence battles as a Sorcerer. But that’s okay. It’s actually better than good. Dragon’s Dogma offers so many magical skills to Sorcerers, it’s never boring. It’s endless fun.
Although it is true that learning how to play as a Sorcerer takes some time, you will not be disappointed if you enjoy the game. High Maelstrom deals Dark damage to foes within a range of you, while High Gicl deals devastating damage to your enemies.
There are many skills that a Sorcerer can choose from. It’s best to just feel your way through them, depending on how you play. I have tried many builds as a Sorcerer and never felt bored. The Sorcerer to me is my favorite class in Dragon’s Dogma.
What is the best Vocation to use for a Pawn in Dragon’s Dogma’s Dogma’s?
This question isn’t easy to answer. You may be comfortable being the magician in your party. If so, you might consider pawns that are focused on powerful attacks while you buff them from far.
My personal experience has shown me that diversity is crucial. I alwayshave two of my pawns: a Mage, and a Warrior. They are not the best classes, but they are classes I struggle to play as myself so I let the AI do a better job than I could. Striders can also be useful companions because they can assist with both close combat as well as attacking from far away.
It is best to try different pawns depending on your class to find the best combination. You’ll not only get the best combinations but you will also have a lot of fun finding your favorite playstyle.
