When can you unlock the Trickster Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

You can actually unlock the Trickster vocation relatively early in the story. After you get into Battahl, you can make your way over to where the Maister of this vocation is. You will naturally come here as part of the main story but you can come here early if you can manage to get past all of the deadly creatures that block the path to the location of the Maister. This isn’t a trek that an Arisen should take lightly.

How to unlock the Trickster Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Once you reach this location, talk to Luz. Just a simple interaction with her in her astral form will unlock the Trickster Class. You don’t need to complete any specific quest or perform a specific task. If you are having trouble locating this NPC, you will naturally unlock the class during the Flickering Shadows quest. This quest will ask you to speak to an oracle which will take you directly to Luz where you unlock the vocation.

As soon as the class is unlocked, you can go to the Vocation Guild to switch over to the class for 200 Discipline Points. This will come with a new set of gear including the smoke weapon that the Trickster class uses for its illusions.

Getting more armor

After unlocking the class, you will be able to purchase weapons and armor specifically for the Trickster vocation from the nearby vendors in Battahl. This will also unlock armor at other merchants you have visited so be sure to go back to old towns and look at the stock.

How to use the Trickster Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2

The Trickster Vocation plays much differently than any of the other classes. For instance, you can summon a Simulacrum of yourself that can draw enemy attention away from your allies. You can use this Simulacrum to draw enemy attention to other enemies as well, making your foes attack one another. Other abilities such as Fickle Floor allow you to create false platforms to lure enemies off of cliffs and more.
