The Warrior is an Advanced Vocation in Dragon's Dogma. It costs 1,000 Discipline Points to switch to this vocation.


"A fighter especially skilled at melee combat, and who is unafraid of death."

Warriors are an offensive focused melee vocation - their primary and only weapons are two handed Longswords or Warhammers. With a front line role they required good defense, and favor the full protection of Very Heavy Armor Sets together with heavily reinforced underclothes or chain mail. Some animal skin derived armors of lesser weight are also suitable for warriors.

Warrior's attacks are purely physical in nature and depend on strength to do damage. Warriors grow greatly in strength, defense, and health as they gain experience. Such power enables them to mine ore directly from Ore deposits, and destroy weak walls just by striking them.


Warriors show greatly increased resistance to staggering blows and knockdown compared to other classes, even with the same armor and defenses.

Warrior also gains "unstoppability" while attacking, allowing him to ignore not only enemy blows but also wind buffers, stomps, and shockwaves: that means that when attacking they don't get affected by knockdowns from Cyclops' blows and Dragons' wing buffets. As such, when performing a chain attack it is as if they had the augment Stability equipped.
