    I think the most important advice for enjoying Dragon's Dogma is: take your time, experiment, and don't use a wiki too early!
    This is one of those games that keep getting better even after a hundred hours, if you allow it to.

    How does character level and vocation level work ? It look like vocation level unlocks new skills in the vocation but what does character level do except raising health ?

    That's one topic that merits consulting a wiki, but you shouldn't obsess over it. Even a completely 'gimped' character can finish all content with any vocation with the right gear, even solo.
    What's important is that as you level up your current vocation, you unlock augments, which carry over between vocations. So again: experiment! Not just with items, or playing solo, but also try the different vocations!

    Character level affect your stats, depending on the class you leveled in, so a "wrong" class can fuck up your growth.

    (people are going to say "but tier 3 bitterblack weapons make your stats irrrelevant!", which is pointless because they mean you have completed the entire fucking game already)

    frankly just play the class you want to play

    don't spam sorcerer levels to min max your magick archer. by then you'll be finished with the game already.

    just know that a level 100 sorcerer doesn't have much in terms of physical stats so they probably won't be that effective in switching to fighter.

    Is there a sneaking/stealing mechanic in the game so that you can steal items from npcs ?

    No. There's some message board quests for bonus items that were DLC in the original release, but they're simple fetch quests for unusual but not really powerful items.

    Not really, but keep an eye on the shop called The Black Cat. It lets you create false copies of objects and with a little experimenting it can lead to interesting results, specially relating to quests.

    It seems that the maximum damage is the most important stat to overcome enemy defenses. Is there a way to see the damage output of a skill without trying it ?

    Guys, some nights ago, I had a dream that Dragon's Dogma 2 was out.
    And it had a fall damage mitigating exploit (similar to Skull Splitter), if you used a consumable and spammed the jump button during the animation (yes, animated like in the Gothics/Soulsbornes, no more paused menu tomfoolery) before jumping off a ledge.
    The landing-on-your-face animation still played when hitting the ground, but you wouldn't take any damage.

    I don't know what this means exactly... but it is an omen!

    judging by a futuristic font, it's probably a new Resident Evil game.
    or a remake of an old Resident Evil game.
    or Pragmata gameplay reveal.
    or Deep Down revival.
    or Lost Planet reboot.

    That lost PS3/PS4 game where you get send to fantasy world? I remember getting some hype for it back then when you could get PS3 for cheap, before global financial crisis hit.
    Then Dagon Dogma satisfied my hype and forgot about that vapourware

    That countdown clock is so digital looking it being a reveal to Dragon's Dogma would be the biggest surprise of everything it could be counting down to. If it was revealed beforehand that was a DD countdown I'd expect a DD with a massive setting shift.

    I see people thinking it's for Resident Evil, the Reaident Evil leaker guy thinks it's most likely Street Fighter 6. Although RE leaker also doesn't know anything about this. Apparently the countdown ends when Capcom Cup would have. It's probably SF6, which has been in development for a few years now, and that leak said something about how the original plan was to come out this year. So probably SF6 on RE Engine.

    By the time E3 stuff is meant to happen in the summer Hideaki Itsuno will have been working on his next project (which sure seems to be DD2) for three years, so we'll probably see something then. It'll probably get shown then, unless it gets saved to be shown at the Game Awards because of weird Covid E3 shit. Three years into development is probably a good time to show something from it.

    Nice game. Arisen Is black and Is a sorcerer neGromancer. In the italian version archistaves are called for some reason sceptres so Arisen wuz a kang too.

    They are silly costumes, that means only chest armor and not head, cloack, arms and legs...upgraded decent armor Is better than those.

    So the countdown ended and the reveal was Street Fighter 6, which is the thing everyone but beaten down Street Fighter fans thought it'd be. But, to tie that into Dragon's Dogma... I'm not sure who the concept artist on this new SF6 is. It could be Bengus, or it could be Daigo Ikeno. Ikeno does a lot of character design and promo work for Capcom. One of the things he did a bunch of design work on was Dragon's Dogma. Did DMC5 too, although that used face scans so it's not gonna look exactly like he stuff. But I'd be willing to wager a Dragon's Dogma 2 isn't going to use face scans if it's letting you edit how characters look, so this new Street Fighter game might be a good look as to what character models in a future Dragon's Dogma look like. Could basically look like the art from the original game but with realistic textures on everything.

    Hmm, I'm not too sure about that. Isn't it a bit too optimistic to expect a [most likely] open world RPG to have character models on par with a fighting game?

    Not exactly, I mean, look at something like Red Dead Redemption 2 from 2018. Now I'm talking more broadly speaking thought, just how in this new Street Fighter the models looks like one of those two artist but textured in a realistic manner...if in-game you've got vains popping and muscles moving under skin I wouldn't expect that. I'm just pointing out this new Street Fighter may be the same character designer of the original Dragon's Dogma, and an RE Engine DD2 might have very similar looking character models.

    I actually think this is kind of funny that it was right. I didn't even remotely expect DD2, but also had no idea what Capcom had in the pipe. It was basically a shitpost.

    Looking back at this leak from November 2020:

    At the time, it was rumored that this table was from before of the covid lockdowns, and as such they were possibly outdated (as in delayed)
    And indeed there's no way for DD2 to release in Q2 of this year without so much as an official announcement. However SF6 can still make that Q3 of 2023, that's interesting to note...

    Then we got the GeForce Now leak last November, which stipulated Dragon's Dogma 2 was set for release in 2023.


    So it's mostly likely that, like DMC5, DD2 will get an official reveal this year at some game event like E3, followed release in Q1 or Q2 of 2023.
    For further proof there's the fact that - DMC3, DMC4, DD and DMC5 were all release betwen January and May of their respective year's (also DMC4 and DD were released 4 years apart)
