You can also sometimes find pawns walking along the roads of Gransys, or around the Pawn Guild in Gran Soren. It's helpful to use item buffs to do as much damage as you can. Monsters that fall into the Brine will be instantly killed but won't drop loot. You'll find him, and he will take off. Follow the suspect; don't get too close or you'll fail the quest.
Large characters also benefit from longer reach with their melee attacks, and being taller allows you to stand in deeper water without dousing your lantern. Taller characters walk faster than shorter characters.
The smaller and lighter you are, the less you are able to carry. Small characters have smaller stamina pools but stamina regenerates quicker. You have a smaller hitbox, so some attacks against you might miss when it could have hit a taller character. The shortest characters are able to fit in some areas made for goblins as shortcuts. If you're playing a small character, consider getting a larger pawn to carry your loot. Run speed is the same regardless of character size.
You can change the way you look after character creation. There is a barber shop in the main city that allows you to change your hair, eye color, skin color, and voice. For more extreme changes, you can return to the character creation menu by going to the Encampment and buying the Art of Metamorphosis for 5, rift crystals for a one-time change. In the post-game, you can get the Secret of Metamorphosis for 10, rift crystals to change you and your pawn freely.
These are used from the main menu by selecting Character Edit. You start the game with a choice between Fighter, Strider, and Mage. You will stay in that vocation until you reach level You can also change by talking to Olra in Bitterblack Isle.
There are a total of 9 vocations classes in the game. In general, basic vocations have a mix of offense and defense, advanced vocations focus more on dealing damage, and hybrid vocations offer unique abilities and versatility. Pawns cannot have hybrid vocations. The basic sword-and-shield fighter has a variety of offensive and defensive options.
They can withstand heavy damage with high HP and heavy armor. They can draw attacks away from allies to let them fight without fear of counterattack. The warrior eschews shields in order to go all out with two-handed weapons. While their attacks are slow, they hit for devastating damage. They are resistant to stagger and knockdown ensuring they unleash their might. However, they only get 3 weapon skills instead of 6!
The strider can strike foes from afar with a bow and can scrap in melee with dual daggers. They have the unique ability to steal items from enemies and are very well suited to climbing big foes. They have the most balanced stat growth of all classes. The ranger focuses even more with the bow for devastating long-ranged damage. Extremely deadly when using specialized ammo such as Blast Arrows.
The mage has a nice selection of basic damage and support spells. The backbone of any balanced party. This is the only vocation with a healing spell!
The sorcerer loses some support capability in exchange for flashy and powerful spells that wrack the battlefield. Multiple sorcerers can spell synch for rapid-fire casting. The assassin is a weapon master, being able to wield 4 types of weapons with different movesets to adapt to different combat scenarios. They are very powerful physical attackers. Magick Archer.
The Magick Archer uses magick through their bow with homing capabilities. They are very mobile and have versatile magick utility. Their special arrow attacks span across all elements. Mystic Knight. Your character level and your vocation level are entirely separate. Your character level is your character's overall level of power, and can go up to level Each of the nine vocations have their own level up to 9, which unlocks more attacks, spells, and augments for that vocation.
You increase your character level and your current vocation level at the same time. Your current vocation determines what stats you gain when you increase in character level. While every vocation has a basic attack that does not consume stamina, vocations mostly use skills in combat, which are combat maneuvers, special attacks, or spells that require stamina. Vocations can equip up to 6 skills at once, with the exception of Warrior, which can only equip 3. There is no such thing as mana or MP in this game.
Instead, spells are balanced by their stamina cost and casting time. If you get interrupted while casting a spell, you'll lose all progress and will have to start casting from the beginning. Thus, the biggest, flashiest spells take a long time to cast and are risky in a chaotic fight. Speaking of big flashy spells, don't worry about harming your pawns; there is no friendly fire in this game except the possession debilitation and a Magick Archer ability that requires sacrificing a pawn to cast.
However, you can harm friendly NPCs, so be careful if you start attacking near them. Having multiple sorcerers in your party enables a unique ability called spell synching. Whenever a sorcerer incants a spell, another sorcerer nearby can cast the same spell almost instantly. This can be terrifyingly powerful in the right circumstances.
Unfortunately, mages cannot spell synch with sorcerers. For equipment, you can equip both armor AND clothing in the same slot for chest and legs. You'll be missing out on defenses if you don't equip a shirt underneath your chest plate, or pants beneath your legguards. You can also equip two pieces of jewelry at once, even two of the same kind.
The stat gains you get from levelling up as a certain vocation are permanent and cannot be changed. Despite this, it's not really necessary to worry about character optimization or builds. Seriously, you can play any vocation at any time without much trouble throughout the entire game, so feel free to experiment with different vocations and find out what is most fun to play.
You can always obtain gear that will offset any stat deficiencies your character might have when switching vocations. If you care about optimization a lot, try reading this [pastebin. It is NOT recommended for new players. For more information regarding augments and stat growth, go to the Useful Links section below and check out my other steam guide which covers those subjects. Pawns are the main feature of Dragons Dogma that separates it from other games in the genre. You play the game with a main pawn and two support pawns, making a dynamic party of four.
Your main pawn is yours. It sticks with you throughout the entire game and it levels up alongside you. You'll get your main pawn very early in the game, typically within the first hour of gameplay. You create it and can customize it almost as much as your main character. Every time a player rests at an inn, their pawn gets uploaded to the game servers. After you get your main pawn, you can hire support pawns from any Rift Stone. You can also sometimes find pawns walking along the roads of Gransys, or around the Pawn Guild in Gran Soren.
The game has a selection of support pawns available at every level for those who cannot play online. Try to cover your bases. A good general party will have at least one melee vocation, one ranged vocation, and one magic vocation.
It is highly recommended to have a mage in your party at all times, as they are the only vocation that can heal the party without the need for items. Pawns have their own knowledge on quests, monsters, and locations. The same idea applies for monster weaknesses. Support pawns are meant to be a temporary pact. You can choose to hire pawns of higher or lower level than you.
You get bonus experience for having pawns of lower level than you, and an experience penalty for pawns of higher level. You must pay rift crystals to hire pawns of higher level than you. You can hire pawns from your friends for free, no matter what level they are. Keep in mind that the experience modifiers from level differences still apply. Don't get discouraged if your pawn returns to you with a 3-star rating with no comment or gift.
This almost always means your pawn died in the other player's world, usually via endless pit, the brine, petrification, or instant death effects. This leaves the player who hired your pawn unable to give them a proper rating. You'll find that pawns can be quite the chatterboxes.
If it ends up being too much, you can reduce the frequency of speech at the Knowledge Chair at inns or at the Pawn Guild, or turn off their subtitle display in the options menu. The PC release features a new listing in the options menu to have them only speak when spoken to.
As you explore Gransys, your pawns will pick up loot occasionally. Everything they pick up will always be yours, so don't worry about your support pawns' inventories when you dismiss them or if they die; everything in their inventory will automatically go to your storage. On the other hand, if you wish to give items to other players, you can do so by giving gifts to their pawn while dismissing them in the rift.
You cannot take items equipped on a support pawn. If you try, it will be unequipped but it won't appear in your inventory. If you put your own equipment on a support pawn, that equipment will be gifted to that pawn's master. You'll get a note on-screen notifying you when you're about to do this, so you can't accidentally lose anything.
If you give the "Help! If you command "Help! However, doing this often influences your main pawn's inclinations see the section below. Just as pawns have their own knowledge, they also have their own personality that dictates how they will act in and out of battle.
This has a great effect on how they perform, so much so that expert players can and will hire pawns based on inclinations. Having the right inclinations are just as, if not more important than, having the right gear and skills equipped.
Inclinations are always updating over time depending on your behavior, so pay attention to your pawn. You can check pawn inclinations on the status screen. You'll see the top two inclinations that define their priorities and tendencies in battle. The primary inclination has the strongest influence.
The third-highest tertiary inclination also has an effect on behavior, even though it is not displayed. Inclinations below the top three are effectively ignored. However, remember that inclinations are guidelines for behaviors, not absolute. Changing your Main Pawn's Inclinations.
Scathers attack the strongest foes first in close-range combat and climb more often. Best on melee pawns; not recommended for long-ranged vocations. Medicants prioritize healing and avoids combat. Useful on mages. Best as a secondary or tertiary inclination. Mitigators attack weak foes first. Spellcasting pawns will use large AoE area of effect spells more often.
Challengers will prioritize foes with long-ranged attacks like bow-users and spellcasters. Utilitarians focus on support actions.
Sorcerers will spell synch, fighters and warriors will grapple, mages will enchant. Works well with more monster knowledge. More utilitarians in a party will coordinate tactics.
Guardians stay close to the Arisen. Usually only useful when you and the pawn are both melee.
Anything else and the pawn will often struggle with conflicting priorities. Similar to Guardian, except that it supports other pawns. Can cause similar issues as Guardian. The pawn will pick up downed allies in combat and drop them closer to you. Pioneers will scout the surrounding area. Can be useful if paired with acquisitor. Can cause the pawn to attract unwanted attention from distant enemies. Acquisitors gather items more often. Very useful, but they can also disengage from battle in order to loot distant items.
So, that's a lot of information regarding inclinations up there. Want the short version? If your pawn is a Fighter pawns are usually meant to be tanks, to attract the enemy's attention away from the squishier party members. Give them Scather as a primary so they get in the middle of the fray. Having Utilitarian as a secondary has them use their aggro-drawing abilities more often. This class simply wants to get in the enemy's face and deal damage, so these are your go-to choices.
Order them however you prefer. Striders are effective at most ranges, so choose Scather or Challenger based on how you want them to fight. If you'd rather not decide, you can't go wrong with Utilitarian.
Rangers work particularly well as Challenger, as they can easily pick off dangerous foes from afar. Avoid Scather, as this makes a conflict between standing in melee range and being at the best distance for longbow use.
Have Utilitarian as the primary inclination. They will keep buffs up and will still attack and heal appropriately. Have Medicant as a secondary or tertiary for reasons listed next paragraph, depending on your preferences. Mitigator and Challenger are good choices for a more offense-oriented mage. Scather is not recommended, as mages don't want to be in close range for the increased likelihood of getting their spellcasting interrupted. Special note about Medicant: Its position as a primary, secondary, or tertiary determine at what health you or your pawns must be for your mage pawn to stop whatever it is doing and begin casting their heals.
With Medicant as a primary, your mage will focus on healing any damage taken at all. This means they'll rarely have an opportunity to cast anything else. A mage without Medicant will heal in combat if health is critical, but otherwise only heal once combat is over.
I recommend having Medicant as a secondary or tertiary; this leaves them more versatile in combat rather than being a monotonous healbot. Sorcerers want to destroy the battlefield with big spells, so Mitigator is great for encouraging AoE use as a primary. Challenger lets them focus on killing, as well, and makes a good primary or secondary. If you want them to keep up with buffs, Utilitarian is a good secondary or tertiary. Avoid Scather: You'll notice Utilitarian is in all pawn suggestions.
It is another interesting inclination as it gets more effective the more bestiary knowledge the pawn has. It also becomes more effective if multiple pawns in the same party have Utilitarian together.
You can't really go wrong with Utilitarian on pawns. And, as I've said before, always avoid Guardian and Nexus unless you know what you're doing and are going for a very specific behavior set. If all of this still seems too daunting, don't get too hung up on all these do's or don'ts. If you're paying half-attention your pawns will do just fine.
Feel free to pick up just about everything you come across. If you get too heavy, you can always give excess cargo to your pawns. By carrying too much, you'll become encumbered. You'll move more slowly, recover stamina slower, and consume stamina faster. You have item storage available at every inn.
Items deposited in one area will be available to pick up everywhere else for convenience. Pawns will automatically use the appropriate curatives in their inventory if they reach low enough health or become afflicted with a status effect. Always keep a lantern on you. The game is very dark underground and at night. Have some flasks of oil ready to refill it when it starts to flicker and dim. If you get drenched in water, it will go out.
You can relight it by putting it away then taking it out again. Pawns can use lanterns without needing refills, but the light radius is very small. You are also able to mine nodes by hitting them with attacks with high impact, such as a two-handed weapon swing or a powerful spell. Some items have expiration dates! It will eventually become a moldy carrot, then a rotten carrot. Items deposited into item storage do not age.
You can also keep items from aging by putting them in airtight flasks. Strange, obscure, or seemingly useless items can be quest objectives, ingredients for an item combination, or a required item for an equipment upgrade. You can combine items from your inventory. It can be quite useful in you're in a pinch. You can find a complete list of item combinations here [dragonsdogma. There are seven tiers of equipment upgrades which raise the stats of the weapon or armor in question.
Note that you can skip lower tiers if you have the materials for it. Upgrade Level. Killing a dragon yields a chance that the Arisen's current equipment gets dragonforged. See the section below. Done by Barroch on Bitterblack Isle. Requires rift crystals and rare items. Can only be done on Dragonforged equipment. Requires rift crystals and very rare items. Can only be done on Silver Dragonforged equipment.
Save often. Instead, you'll be given different options, such as Save and Continue, Save and Quit, etc. The game is designed around only having one saved character, but that one save has two save "slots" which serve different purposes. The first is a general save slot that autosaves when you enter areas or complete quests.
It is also what you save to when you manually save. The second is the checkpoint save, which occurs every time you rest at an inn or enter a rift stone. If you mess up on a quest or want to retry something but the game has autosaved since, restart from a checkpoint to return to the inn or rift stone.
Early in the game, avoid travelling at night. Visibility is low, exploration is hindered, and very deadly beasts prowl around. Early on, beware the armored bandit on the way to Witchwood. Rest at inns on a regular basis. Not only does this restore health and upload your pawn data, it also sets the game time to an hour after morning, or an hour after nightfall: Resting benches on Bitterblack Isle do not pass time. If you're trying to advance time on BBI such as waiting for respawns , leave the island and rest at an inn.
You have infinite stamina in safe areas such as in town, so you can sprint as long as you like. Day lasts 32 minutes; night lasts 16 minutes. Each in-game hour is 2 minutes long, so a full in-game day is 48 minutes long. When you take damage, you will see your health bar decrease, as well as have a light gray and a dark gray section. The light gray part of the health bar can be recovered with healing magic.
The dark gray part of the health bar can only be recovered via healing items or staying at an inn. While you can walk in shallow water, you cannot swim in deep water, which houses the mysterious Brine. The Brine is identified by its "bloody" appearance when you get too close. An Arisen fallen into the Brine will respawn close by without issue, but any pawn claimed by the Brine will be sent back to the Rift as if killed.
Monsters that fall into the Brine will be instantly killed but won't drop loot. An easy, powerful curative item in the game is spring water. Simply take some empty flasks to any healing spring and perform the gather action to take some.
Flasks are cheap, and each flask of spring water heals the entire party for HP! For increased mobility, consider using vocations with daggers, which have a double jump core skill. Using these, you can reach some areas normally inaccessible. Unfortunately, neither of these skills prevent falling damage. Weapon enchantments are a wonderful thing. Try and have at least one person in your party able to buff your weapons. In terms of which element, it depends on what you're up against, but for the most part Fire and Holy has you covered in most bases.
Holy has an extra benefit of slightly healing you whenever you deal damage, but fire is better for fighting beasts. Both are great against undead. If you release before the advanced version is fully charged, you will do the basic one instead. Pay attention to your stamina! Now reborn as an Arisen, you must lead the Pawn Legion into battle as you deal with court politics, combat apocalyptic cultists, and chase down the enigmatic Dragon.
