Here we’ll detail how to unlock the Mystic Spearhand vocation.

Unlocking Mystic Spearhand in Dragon’s Dogma 2, Walkthrough

Wielding the distinctive Duospear, Mystic Spearhands can immobilize adversaries or hurl multiple objects with precision, showcasing their mastery over both physical and magical domains. Before you get to do all of that, though, you’ll need to unlock it.

This quest revolves around encounters with Sigurd. There are several avenues through which players can meet Sigurd and subsequently unlock the vocation. Let’s break them all down.

Harve Village Approach

Journey to Harve Village: After leaving the excavation site near the beginning of your adventure, make your way to Vernworth. From there, head towards Harve Village, where you’ll be promptly engaged in combat against Saurians, initiating the Scaly Invaders quest.

Melve Encounter

Assisting the townsfolk and NPCs, including Sigurd, in repelling the dragon will earn his respect. Following the battle, engage Sigurd in a conversation about his combat techniques to gain access to the Mystic Spearhand vocation.

Dragon Encounter in Melve: Upon reaching Melve and aiding in the defeat of the dragon, Sigurd will approach you post-battle. Demonstrating interest in his fighting style will prompt him to share the secrets of the Mystic Spearhand vocation.

Whichever you go with, once Sigurd acknowledges your combat skills and willingness to learn, you’ll be given the opportunity to on your way to take on the Mystic Spearhand. To officially adopt it:
