Bravely Default 2 is a refresh based on the classic JRPG formula. Combining the tried-and-true formula of a story with elemental crystals with an extensive job pool system and a story that resembles a classic love letter, there’s a lot to love about this game. One of the most important aspects of gameplay in the Bravely Default series concerns the job and skill system. Players can mix and match different job and skill classes to create a team that best suits whatever they’re fighting against.
Black Mage: Poison
While all Black Mage spells are great, allowing you to cast them on an individual enemy or all enemies at once and allowing the player to exploit weaknesses, potions spell stand out for a number of reasons.
At first glance, it seems to be a weak magic attack option, but once the poison is used, it continuously deals damage to enemies. Plus, in Bravely Default 2, even bosses aren’t immune to poison, so using Poison allows you to deal some serious damage over time, even if your character does busy with other activities.
The Bard’s Buff Skills – Bravely Default 2
At first glance, the Bard class might be looked down upon by many players for its lack of magic and physical attack abilities. However, when used properly, many of Bard’s skills can be used as a support role to power up your team and make them unstoppable.
Right out of the portal, at levels 1 and 2, Bard provides skills that reduce physical and magic damage by 15% to your entire party. Moreover, these advantages are preventable, making your party unstoppable. Later Bard skills also spice things up, allowing you to increase target and magic damage, among other attributes.
Thief’s Attack Item Amp
If you know the strength of offensive items in battle, then you will be pleased to know that the Thief class has a skill specifically for that. This is a passive skill learned at level 7 in Bravely Default 2, so once your character learns it, they just need to equip it.
The skill Attack Item Amp, which stands for Amplification, increases the damage dealt by using attack items by an amazing 50%. This allows your character to go to town (literally, for attack items and figuratively) with attack items, exploiting left and right weak points and dealing massive amounts of damage big.
Raw Power – Bravely Default 2
Beast Master is a unique class that allows the player to capture enemies from the field and unleash them against enemies. However, there is much more than Beast Master has to offer.
For example, the Raw Energy skill learned at level 7, increases your character’s attack power as they become Braver, with a 10% increase. This allows you to take a risky gamble, where maxing out BP will give a massive attack boost, allowing characters built on attack physical damage to deal damage as high as they can for each attack.
Spearhead – Bravely Default 2
Another Beast Master skill, Spearhead is very useful as it allows the player to strategize with a strong edge. Unlocked at level 8, right after Origin, this skill ensures that the character equipped with this skill, as well as the Spear-type weapon, will act first in battle.
This allows gameplay possibilities to extend beyond just dealing damage. A character equipped with a Spearhead can use their actions to heal the party, applying status effects to enemies, or anything in between.
