Jobs are essentially classes that offer unique skills and attributes during combat. Some excel at close-range combat and dealing fire damage, while others are used to sling spells from a distance. Only one Job (Fighter) will be available to you at the start of the game, although you’ll quickly unlock more as you play through the main story. You’ll also gain the ability to swap between them in the middle of combat to gain the upper hand.

How to use Jobs in Harvestella

Once you’ve unlocked a Job, you’ll need to assign it to your character before you can use it. This can be done by pausing the game and heading to the Party menu. From here, simply select your character, then highlight one of the three Job slots at the bottom of the screen. You’ll then have the option to assign a Job to one of these slots.

With your Jobs equipped, you’ll now have access to them while in combat. Keep in mind that both your Job Skills and the Jobs themselves carry cooldowns. For example, if you are playing as a Mage and switch to Fighter, the Mage Job will be locked for a few seconds, preventing you from using it. There’s also a cooldown for each skill. This makes it crucial to plan out your strategy ahead of time, as there’s nothing worse than having to wait for a cooldown timer before switching back to a Job you need or a skill you’d like to use.

Jobs can also be upgraded to make them more effective. As you slay enemies, you’ll accrue Job Points (JP). These are exchanged for new skills and passive abilities in the Job menu. Instead of having one large pool of JP, each individual Job has its own pool of JP. In other words, the more you use a specific Job, the faster you can level it up.

What is dragonsplague in Dragon’s Dogma 2 and how is it cured?

Dragon's Dogma 2 likes to keep many of its mechanics and systems a secret until you discover them. You will learn quickly that you can't fast travel around the map freely, but there's one mechanic that is far more detrimental to your game. This is called dragonsplague and it is a disease that can't be cured with a simple tonic. In fact, you may not even realize if you have it in your game because it isn't something that affects your character at all; instead, it affects your Pawns. Failing to recognize you have dragonsplague and deal with it in a timely manner can ruin your entire playthrough if you're not careful. To avoid such a catastrophe, here are all the details about this cruel disease.
What is dragonsplague?

Dragonsplague is a special kind of disease that Pawns can contract seemingly by interacting with either Drakes or Dragons. That part isn't fully clear yet, however, we do know that Pawns with dragonsplague can spread the disease to other Pawns. Since Pawns are able to pass between worlds to join other players, you are never fully safe from being infected if you're playing online. Unlike a real sickness, though, dragonsplague actually transfers between Pawns rather than spreads, meaning it won't fully run rampant through the game.

Open-world RPGs can be anywhere from around a dozen hours long to well over 100. Dragon's Dogma 2 is very unique, even among others in the genre, for not adhering to a lot of traditional design philosophies, such as how it handles fast travel. If anything, that will only add to your total playtime, plus there are all the optional quests to do, Vocations to try out and level up, and more if you're a completionist. If you're wondering if you have the time to fit Dragon's Dogma 2 into your schedule among all the other games releasing, here's how long you can expect this adventure to last.
How long is Dragon's Dogma 2?

For the main quest, Dragon's Dogma 2 can probably be beaten in around 25 hours, give or take. That's assuming you mainline the story as efficiently as possible and don't get stuck on any boss fights being under-leveled. A more realistic playthrough where you explore a bit, do some side content, and maybe go for the true ending will push you into the 30 to 35-hour range, as it did for us.
