dragons dogma 2 advanced vocations

Vocations are the combat classes that can be attached to your Arisen and Pawns. Those classes are split up between basic, advanced, and hybrid. The Arisen is the only character capable of changing their Vocation and accessing any of the hybrid vocations. The basic starting Vocations you can choose from when you initially customize your Pawn include "Fighter," "Mage," "Thief," and "Archer." As your Arisen and Pawns become more powerful, they'll be able to tap into the powers of one of two advanced Vocations: "Warrior" and "Sorcerer." The three hybrid Vocations only your Arisen can choose from are the "Mystic Spearhand" (which specializes in melee and magick abilities), the "Magick Archer" (a combat class that emphasizes long-range combat strengthened by magick), and the "Trickster" (this Vocation lets your Arisen utilize a unique weapon called the "Censer" that concocts illusions drawn from the smoke that weapon conjures up).
