Best armor for each Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To choose the best armor in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is to travel all across the world and spend every single coin you have in your pockets. Let’s look at the best armor pieces – consisting of head, body, and leg armor – for every single Vocation in the game.

For each Vocation, I will be picking both the base game’s best armor – before ending your first run of the game and entering NG+ – and the endgame best armor and separate them in their sections. This will help you out indeed and make things a bit more interesting because most of the absolute best armor pieces are obtained by trading Wyrmslife Crystals – from now on referred to as WC – with The Dragonforged.

Finally, since we mentioned The Dragonforged, I will add some endgame armor alternatives that won’t require WC but gold or found inside treasures. Note that this won’t happen often, so don’t forget to fight some dragons while you are exploring Vernworth and Battahl. Here are the best armor sets for each Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

As you can see you will be visiting Volcanic Island quite a bit during your playthrough – and yes, I did do exactly that a lot. There are plenty of other armor pieces for every Vocation for you and your Pawn to sport and favor your build in Dragon’s Dogma 2. For all endgame armor, be sure to defeat Drakes and earn gold as fast as you can so that, when the time comes, you get to spend it all without going broke.
