Dragon’s Dogma 2: How to unlock Trickster Vocation

Rust in the mountains, rust in the brain.

Trickster is a rather unique Arisen-only vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Rather than deal a lot of damage, you instead mostly buff your Pawns and flummox your enemies. You’re no doubt going to get it eventually, but if you’re looking to secure the it, this is how you unlock the Trickster Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

How to get the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Trickster Vocation

You can’t get the Trickster vocation until you get to Battahl. If you continue to follow the main questline, you’ll eventually get to it through the quest Flickering Shadows. If you don’t want to wait, once you get to Battahl, just beeline it to the Reverent Shrine. 

There, you’ll meet Luz, who will teach you the vocation. For bonus points, go to the back of the shrine and climb to the roof. Move to the front of the shrine (above the front door) and you’ll find Luz there, in the flesh. She’ll teach you an additional move.

How to use the Trickster Vocation

As I mentioned earlier, the Trickster vocation is less about doing damage and more about empowering your Pawns. It’s too bad this is an Arisen-only power, since this is exactly the sort thing I’d want a Pawn to do. In any case, many of the skills held by the Trickster either create illusions to confuse enemies (without attacking them), while others buff Pawns.

Tricksters wield a censer as a weapon, which is pretty far out. One of the more interesting abilities allows the player to create solid objects – specifically walls and bridges – using their censer.

Altogether, it’s a rather strange vocation that’s most useful to players who like to simply watch the combat unfold while gently altering the outcome. It’s, um, not for me. I like to be the one doing massive damage. However, if the Trickster sounds good to you, hopefully this guide helps.
