There are plenty of Vocations to choose from in Dragon’s Dogma 2, but not all of them can be selected early on. The same was true in the first game, though the sequel demands a bit more legwork from players before it even presents them with the option to use its revamped character classes.


Dragon’s Dogma 2: Should You Give Items To Your Dismissed Pawns?

Dismissing a Pawn in Dragon’s Dogma comes with a prompt to give them some items; should you give them something for their master?

Among the earliest Vocations players can get are the Warrior and Sorcerer, advanced versions of the Fighter and Mage respectively. Unlocking Vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2 isn’t always simple, however, and to get these two, you’ll need to make your way to the Vernworth Vocation Guild and complete the Vocation Frustration quest first.

Where to Find The Greatsword and Archistaff

After speaking with the NPC at Vernworth’s Vocation Guild, he’ll tell you that you can find a greatsword and archistaff inside Trevo Mine, a small cave and tunnel network due northwest of Vernworth. It’s a few minutes’ hike away from the city, and the path there should be relatively safe, featuring only the most basic of Dragon’s Dogma 2’s monsters like harpies and goblins in the wilderness. Make your way to the mine, then enter the cave entrance.

Chest Locations

Luckily, Trevo Mine’s layout is fairly straightforward. Finding the weapons here shouldn’t take long. You can find a Two-Hander greatsword in the cave to the right of the forked path from the entrance. This is in the same room with the wooden door leading further into the mine. Meanwhile, to find the archistaff, you have to delve a little more. Go north, and you’ll find a larger cavern with a bridge and multiple goblins. Slay them as you will, then head down. One of the tunnels there has a chest tucked away in a quiet corner. Open it to get an archistaff.

Before you head back, make sure to check the western tunnels of the mine. Inside one of the caves is a chest that contains a Ring of Cooling, an accessory that reduces the damage its wearer takes from fire attacks. This is especially helpful when drakes or bandits with fire-imbued weapons.

Once you’ve gathered the weapons, haul them back to the Vocation Guild, and the quest is complete. You’ll now be able to unlock the Warrior and Sorcerer Vocations for you and your Main Pawn. The blacksmith and armorer in Vernworth will also start selling relevant weapons and armor, and you’ll earn some starter gear too, once you’ve successfully changed your class to either of these. You can freely change Vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2 by visiting inns or guilds anywhere in the world.
