Hybrid Vocations are the last tier of the nine vocations in Dragon's Dogma. Hybrid vocations combine aspects of two of the three Basic vocations. Only the main character, the Arisen, is able to become a Hybrid Vocation.There are three Hybrid Vocations available:
- Mystic Knight - The Mystic Knight combines aspects of the Fighter and Mage, and is the only class that can use Maces and Magick Shields.
- Magick Archer - The Magick Archer combines aspects of the Strider and Mage, and is the only class that can use Magick Bows.
- Assassin - The Assassin combines aspects of the Strider and Fighter. While the Assassin has no unique weapons, it is the one vocation able to switch between four weapons.
Pawns cannot use a Hybrid Vocation, nor can they be equipped with Maces, Magick Shields or Magick Bows, which are the three hybrid-exclusive weapons. This is also why these three weapon types are untradeable between players.
