Weapons of Dragon’s Dogma


Developers these days tend to communicate with fans in a more interactive manner so that they have a clear idea about quality of the product headed their way.

If you are looking forward to playing Dragon’s dogma, know the arsenal of weapons available in the game.

To reveal the weapons system in the game, Kaoru Araki, the person responsible for the weapon design himself made a blog post that elaborates different weapon choices you have for various classes.

Dragon’s Dogma world features three main occupations: the Fighter, the Strider and the Mage. Each occupation has certain set of skills that differentiate them from each other. There are six advanced occupations in which 3 of them are hybrid while the other 3 are expert occupations.

For each occupation, there will be a main weapon and a sub-weapon in the following manner: weapon and a subweapon. Let’s take a more detailed look at weapons each occupation will feature:

Basic Occupations

Fighter
Main: One-Handed Sword (This is your basic weapon.)
Sub: Shield (Used to defend and provoke, there are also skills that can be used to attack.)

Strider
Main: Double Daggers
Sub: Bow (Although this is the Strider’s sub, it’s actually used quite often.)

Main: Staff (Small staff – you might think you’re gonna bash enemies with these, but actually you fire magic bullets from them.)
