Dragon’s Dogma 2: Best Party Combinations [Top 4]

Choose the best party according to your playstyle to defeat the toughest of enemies!

It is important to have the best party composition in Dragon’s Dogma 2 if you want to defeat the vile end-game bosses and enemies. When choosing the Vocations for your party, it is important to keep them as versatile as possible. Therefore, your party should have good support, a frontline Fighter, and a long-ranged damage dealer. 

Key Takeaways
  • The best party in Dragon’s Dogma 2 will have both close-combat fighters and long-range damage dealers.
  • For high DPS, Thief, Fighter, and Warrior should be kept in the party.
  • It is important to hire pawns who can support your Arisen and main pawn in Dragon’s Dogma 2 against end-game bosses.

  • Author’s Note: I have spent over 30 hours in Dragon’s Dogma 2, so you can trust my judgment in listing the best parties and their optimal combinations. 

Best Party Combinations Picks

Below is an overview of some of the best party compositions that you can go for:

The Best Mid Game Party For Damage.

As you will be taking almost all of the attacks by your enemies and bosses, you will need maximum support. Vocations like Mage, Archer, and Sorcerer are best for frontline Fighters. While Sorcerer and Archer will amp up your offense, Mage will do all the healing and also help you remove any debuffs from allies. 

  • Great for dealing damage to flying enemies
  • Takes minimum damage

  • Lacks in defense.

Vocations For The Party

  • Why I Chose This: I chose the ranged party as it allows you to deal damage at a distance while taking minimum damage yourself.

DPS Party 

The Best End Game Party For High Damage.

If you want a party capable of dealing serious damage, then I will recommend going for the Fighter, Warrior, and thief combo. This party will focus heavily on offense by using physical and melee vocations.

For your Arisen, I would recommend choosing Thief. Your main pawn can be a Mage, and your support pawns can be from your physical vocations, such as Fighter or Warrior.

These three vocations are a must for this party. It is extremely important to keep a Mage in your party for healing and providing buffs to your allies. Furthermore, Mage will also deal ranged damage using spell attacks. 

  • Perfect for killing enemies stealthily.
  • Maximum healing due to Mage.

  • It cannot deal much damage at longer ranges.

Vocations For The Party 

Below are the recommended positions for the vocations in the DPS party:

MageMain Pawn

WarriorSupport Pawn
  • Why I Chose This: These vocations deal the greatest damage and can be used in the early as well as the end game.

Balanced Party 

The Best Overall Early Game Party.

For the best-balanced party, you need to have a pawn of all four major vocations in Dragon’s Dogma 2. You’re Arisen can be either an Archer or a thief. Your main pawn should be a Mage, and you can choose Fighter as your support.

Archer will help you cover a great range, and you will be able to deal with attacks from a distance. Your Fighter and thief will cover the front lines while the Mage will do all the healing and provide you with buffs. For players just starting out in Dragons Dogma 2, this balanced party composition is the best one to use. 

  • Best for an early game.
  • Great for close combat as well as targeting enemies at a range.

  • Not suitable for a late game.

Spell Casters Party 

The Best Late Game Party For Magic Damage.

In case you’re like me and enjoy casting spells and attacking enemies from a distance. Then this spellcaster party composition is the best for you in-game.

For the party, the Arisen will be either a Mage or a Sorcerer. You can also choose the Mystic Spearhand vocation when you unlock it, later on, to deal with the end-game bosses and enemies. Your support pawn will be a Sorcerer if you want to spell sync. And for physical vocations, you can go to Fighter and Archer.

If you have chosen a Sorcerer as your Arisen, make sure to add another Sorcerer to the party to perform a spell sync. Doing so will allow you to double the damage to enemies using the same spells as your support Sorcerer pawn. The spellcaster party will solely focus on dealing damage using magic.

  • High magic damage.
  • Spell sync can be utilized if the Arisen is a Sorcerer.

  • Lacks in defense and physical damage.

My Verdict On Choosing The Optimal Party Combination

Choosing the best party can be quite frustrating because there are a number of different vocations to choose from. However, you can always change your vocation as well as your support pawns. Therefore, you can try out all of the party compositions mentioned above and go for the one that is best suited to your playstyle.
