The Thief vocation is best built as a mobile DPS that can use swift multi-hit dagger attacks to stack damage on targets before quickly evading retaliation. This class naturally has low HP and defense so being able to endure more hits via Augments will increase survivability. Otherwise, you can simply focus on improving DPS to take down enemies quickly before they can react.

Mystic Spearhand Build

Dragon's Dogma 2 - Mystic Spearhand Vocation Icon

The Mystic Spearhand vocation is best built as a primary DPS character with excellent mobility who can output both physical and magic damage at almost any range. This build benefits from augments that are more associated with spellcaster vocations because of its reliance on skills and access to a strong duospear attack that also deals magic damage.

Thanks to its hybrid damage specialty, the Mystic Vocation build also greatly benefits from the Polarity augment skill which boosts physical attack power during the day and magick attack power at night.
