Dragon’s Dogma 2 Unveils All-Rounder Warfarer Vocation & New Gameplay

Become a master of weaponry and skills in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

With the March release of Dragon’s Dogma 2 approaching, Capcom was on hand at the latest PlayStation State of Play presentation to show off more of its action role-playing epic. This time around, the focus is on the Warfarer vocation, new characters, as well as the mysterious Dragonsplague disease.

The Warfarer in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Designed as an exclusive vocation just for the Arisen, the Warfarer is capable of using every weapon and learning different skills from other vocations in the game. The idea is to give players the opportunity to “respond to any situation and create combos that cross vocational boundaries.”

The tradeoff is that the vocation comes with lower base stats, which require players to “utilize the situational strengths of different weapon types to be on par with other vocations with specialized strengths.” Players hoping to enjoy the flexibility of the vocation system in Dragon’s Dogma 2 will likely try the Warfarer, even if the stats require some adjusting.

The Dragonsplague


As described by Capcom, the Dragonsplague is a “contagious disease-like condition that infects pawns as they travel between worlds. Rather than being weakened, Pawns with the disease are said to display remarkable performance and to become conspicuously bold in their speech and behavior.”

“According to folklore, when the symptoms of Dragonsplague reach a terminal stage, it will result in devastating calamity, but the veracity of those claims is unclear.”

How this will play into the larger experience in Dragon’s Dogma 2 remains to be seen, but it is evident that this will be a mechanic that players will have to contend with as they travel on their adventures.

New Characters

The presentation also revealed three new characters that will play different roles in charting the course of the player’s story in the game. They are:


dragon's dogma 2 lennart

Fighter maister and a swordsman who has long served the fortress village of Melve. With his exceptional swordsmanship and leadership skills, he has held the fort and protected the land from the Dragon. Though already retired, his skills show no signs of waning.


dragon's dogma 2 Sigurd

Mystic Spearhand maister, he hunts dragons for his own personal reasons. He is a quiet man with an inquisitive mind, and he constantly trains to improve his fighting skills and unique style. He is obsessed with the extermination of dragonkind and wanders the world in pursuit of dragons.


dragon's dogma 2 Luz

Vermundian court Oracle and Trickster maister. Out of fear for her life over speaking out against the false Arisen taking the throne, she is currently in hiding.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is scheduled to release on March 22, 2024, for PS5, Xbox Series, and PC.
