    Brave and Default Tutorial
    BraveUsing the brave command will give you an additional command during your turn. However using the Brave command requires BP, and you will not have your turn back until your BP returns to 0 or higher.
    DefaultUsing the Default command, will put your character into a defensive stance and replenish your BP. Use this command to defend and stock up your BP.
    • Learn how to take advantage of the Brave and Default system is the key on winning battles.

    Follow the path west until you have reach to the end of the valley. There is an adventurer you can speak to near the end. Talk to him and he'll will give you a special item called "Strange Hourglass. Head out and watch the event, Agnès will join your party.

    Bravely Second Tutorial
    Bravely Second is a new feature added to the international version of Bravely Default. With this feature you can freeze time during battle by consuming SP. This can help you to get out difficult battles. To replenish SP, you need to put your 3DS in sleep mode. If you need SP instantly it will require actual real money (Microtransactions). *You can exceed the 9999 damage cap during Bravely Second. To activate Bravely Second, simply press the start button during battle.

    Now escape from the valley, you will also be forced into two enemy encounters between grunts. Just deal with them like regular monsters. Once you exit out of the cave you will learn about the Friend Summon function.

    Friend Summon Tutorial
    In Bravely Default, you are given a function called Friend Summon. By using this command, you can record your own attack, ability and other miscellaneous function to be summon by other players from the Street Pass function and vice versa. To update the street pass, speak to the Adventurer. You can only update the Street Pass once per day.
    Ablinks Tutorial
    Ablinks is a function that works by adding Friend Codes to your 3DS. During the save option, you can add your friend's data. This will let you summon your friend, but at the same time you can use the Ablinks function under the tactics menu. This will link your job abilities to your friends. For example if your friend has a level 10 Black mage and you only have a level 2 Black mage, by linking it with your friend, you can use all the functions of a level 10 Black mage.

    First Kingdom Caldisla Revisit

    When you have return to Caldisla, go to the castle and speak with the King. You will be given a new function called the Norende Reconstruction. You can access it by touching the village icon on the left side of your touch screen.

    Norende Reconstruction Tutorial
    With this function you can reconstruct Norende village with Streetpass users. Each area can be reconstructed or upgraded after a villager spend a certain amount of time on that area. Doing this will benefit you with new abilities, and items for the Adventurer to sell. *You do not need to be playing Bravely Default to wait for construction time, you can put the 3DS in Sleep Mode to progress construction time.

    Before you head to the next destination, you should equip your characters with new gear and stock up on healing items. Now head to the world map and go to the lake at the south east area. Watch the Event and fight the boss.

    Note: Boss strategy varies between players as each have their own play style and job classes. The following boss strategy is based on my methods to win.

    BossHealth (HP)Stolen ItemItem Drop
    Barras LehrNormal300N/AHi-Potion
    Hard405
    Holly WhyteNormal250N/AEther
    Hard337
    This is the very first boss battle and it can be a pretty tough one to start. I recommend on taking out Holly first, as she is the support unit, she can cast protect and heal her party. Try to get Holly's HP down to around 25% or more (70 to 80 HP) and then unleash your brave command and attack her consecutively to kill her before she can heal herself. Then focus on Barras. Barras can hit very hard after he use his BP along with the Invigorate command to attack. This can deal around 70 to 100 damage depending on your status. Use the Default command to stock up BP and attack Barras when he is in Negative BP.
    • You will obtained the Monk and White Mage Asterisk, with this you can class change into different jobs. Each job has their own unique abilities and status parameters. For more information, read the Job Section.
    • Each character can use two sets of job abilities. Primary abilities are based on character current job class, sub abilities are abilities you have mastered and can be used for other classes.

    Ringabel will join your party. He carries the Notebook of D, which contains information, terminology of Bravely Default. You can also use it to view past event scenes and movies.

    Ruins of Centro Keep

    Alot of the monsters in this dungeon will have poison properties. I recommend having a White Mage or bring some antidote for this area. The dungeon is pretty straightforward, use the switch lever to open the gate to the next area. Once You reach to the Yellow Exclaimination mark you will fight a boss.

    BossHealth (HP)Stolen ItemItem Drop
    Ominas CroweNormal1800N/AEther
    Hard2430
    Ominas is a pretty tough boss, the good news is Edea joins your party and her damage output is insanely high because of her Ise-no-Kami sword. So spam Edea's Brave command and attack Ominas. Use Agnès as a support character and Tiz as another fighter.

    Return to Caldisla and enter the castle throne room to see an event and leave the kingdom.

    Special Move Tutorial

    From now on, you can use the Special command. These commands are attacks that requires a certain condition before you can use them in battle. Using a special command, will give a status buff to your entire party members and will also change the battle BGM (Background Music). Additional Special moves can be unlocked in Norende village.

    Example of some of the Special conditions.

    • Sword : Use the Brave Command ten times.
    • Axe : Defeat five enemies with physical attack.
    • Spear : Inflict physical damage to ten enemies.
    • Rod : Use Magic ten times.
    • Staff : Use healing magic ten times.
    • Knife : Use items five times.
    • Bow : Inflict physical weakness five times. (Flying enemies)
    • Katana : Use the Default Command ten times.
    • Knuckle : Inflict critical damage three times.

    Note: You can customize each Special Move to have multiple properties. Each property can be unlocked when rebuilding Norende. For more details on Special moves, read the special move section of this guide.

    Head back to Ruins of Centro Keep and leave through the center exit. Then head to the fort at the north end.

    Lontaro Villa

    Watch the event and shortly after your cover is blown, you will be force into a battle with some grunt units. Travel outside you get into the other side of the villa, near the end of the dungeon you will find a Blue Chest, these treasure chest cannot be open at this moment, so don't bother trying, you have to wait till chapter 6 before you will have access to it. Once you find the Adventurer, the exit should be near, saved your game and head outside to the airship. Prepare to fight another boss battle.

    Argent HeinkelNormal2400N/AEther
    Hard3250
    Resistance: WindWeakness: Lightning
    Air Force Archer x2Normal120N/AN/A
    Hard167
    Resistance: WindWeakness: Lightning
    Heinkel has high defense, its recommended to have a Black Mage for this boss battle. All of the grunts are weak to thunder, so immediately takeout the grunts first. If you don't, the grunts will poison you with their poison arrow. The best way to take out the grunts, is to cast the thunder spell on all targets, this way you can prevent Heinkel from using his cover ability to bodyguard his grunts. When the grunts has been taken out, you can focus on Heinkel. Heinkel's ability Iron Wall and Shield attack gives him a tremendous amount of defense, that makes it very difficult to deal enough damage with your melee fighters. However, when Heinkel HP drop down to 1000, he'll use his charge ability, that will greatly increases his attack power but will lower his defense. This is the best opportunity for your Melee fighters to attack him.

    Once you have defeated Heinkel, return to Caldisla, then go to the throne room and watch the event scene. Leave the Kingdom. You will now have the airship, "Echalotte" at your possession. Take control of the airship and fly to the southeast continent of Ancheim.

    Note: The airship can only land in water, and requires a port to dismount.

    Main Walkthrough: Chapter 1

    Ancheim, The land of Sand and Time

    Head to Ancheim City at the center at the southeast continent. Watch the event, then speak to the villager highlighted with the yellow exclamation mark and then talk to King Khamer VIII at his throne room for another event. Now leave the city. At this point of the game, you will be introduce to sub quest. You can do sub quests or continue with the main story. All Side quest destinations are highlighted with a blue exclamation mark.

    The first Sub Quest is now available. Finishing this Sub Quest will reward you with the thief and merchant class.

    Sub Quest 1: Thief and Merchant's Asterisk

    Availability: In Chapter 1, when you arrive in Ancheim and have seen the event between the king.

    This is the first sub quest available in the game, the map should now have a blue indicator label with the word "SUB". This is your destination for sub quest events.

    First go to Ancheim and enter the mansion on the farthest east end and speak to Profiteur. Leave the mansion and speak to the man that is near the mansion. Leave Ancheim and head to the Oasis on the west to see an event. Now go to the cave in the northwest corner for another event.

    Harena Ruins

    This dungeon is loaded with statue traps that can blind your party when you touch the gas they breathe out. Clear this dungeon and reach to the end to fight a boss.

    JackalNormal6000N/AHi-Potion

    Ciggma KhintNormal6000N/AN/A
    Hard8150
    This should be a pretty easy boss battle with the proper setup, the two boss does not hit hard, but Khint has a skill that can silence one of your allies, so equip the magic users with silence resist. Jackal will usually try steal a potion from you, so you don't need to worry about Jackal too much. Take out Khint first, then focus all on Jackal. When Jackal's HP reach down to 10% he can heal himself with a potion for 600 HP. Khint will also leave if Jackal's HP drops below 50%.

    When you have defeated Jackal and company, return back to Ancheim. Before you confront Profiteur, you should stock up on revive items as the next boss fight can be a little luck based if your HP is below 600. Once you are ready, head to the mansion on the east end of city and confront Profiteur.

    This is a pretty difficult battle. Your probably expecting Profiteur to be a complete pushover based on his appearance, but he's not. Khint remains the same as the previous battle. As long as you drop any of the bosses's HP down to 50%, one of them will leave. Profiteur is a whole different story, his skill "Takeover" does a fixed damage of 300 regardless of defense, so each time if he use his brave command to hit the same target twice, one of your allies is guaranteed to be K.O. at this stage of the game. If you have a level 5 Black Mage, you can use the ability Damage Dispersion to spread out the damage taken between your party members. This is helpful for this battle and if you don't waste a lot of revive items.

    After clearing the sub quest, resume the main story by going to the Wind Temple (Located south of Ancheim).

    Temple of Wind

    A lot of debris will be blocking your path on the first floor, so you will need to wander around and use the second floor to get to the other side.

    Note: You will notice a Owl Wizard standing at the second floor. Speaking to Owl will unlock a trial, passing the trial will let you learn a new summon when you have unlocked the Summoner Job class.

    Once you reach the north end of the first floor, there should be a switch you can press to open a shortcut to the entrance area. Go the crystal room and see the event.

    Leave the Temple of Wind and use the airship to fly to the forest area north of Ancheim. Land in the lake and enter the small house.

    Go to the cave in the southwest location, not the one that is directly west.

    Vestment Cave

    In this dungeon you will encounter enemies that can use the ability to confuse your allies. It is best to finish off each monster quickly to avoid difficulties cause by confusion ailments.

    When you reach to the 3rd floor, you should find a Adventurer. Save your game before you go to the next area, because there will be a boss fight just nearby.

    The Dragon is immune to fire magic and relies on only physical attacks. Just stick to the basic on keeping your HP high and exchange attacks and the Dragon will be defeated in no time. If you have Norende's weapon shop upgraded to the point that you can purchase an Angel Bow. That weapon can make the battle a complete breeze.

    Orthros has two heads, one is ice and the other one is fire. The ice head does very high damage to a single target, while the fire head will do damage that hit all allies. Focus on taking out one head first, because this boss hits very hard. If your gear is poor at this point of the game, I suggest having two White Mage to heal and support for your party.

    Once you have defeated Orthros, you are prompt to shine the crystal again. Just rapidly press the X button until Airy tells you to stop. You will also gain an additional support point. Now return back to Ancheim and watch the event. Leave the city for another event. You can now unlock the Time Mage and Spell Fencer class.

    There is no random encounters in the Water Temple. You can see extra events by exploring some of the areas of the Water Temple. When you're done exploring, go to the Crystal Room.

    Leave the water Temple and return to Florem and speak to the Matriarch again. Then go to the Item shop and speak to the Shop owner. Then speak to the blue hair girl standing near the center. Then to the man near the bottom of the map. Then talk to the girl near the center. Then go back and speak to the Matriarch.

    Mephilla can summon grunt units in this fight and perhaps they're the most annoying part of this fight. Take out the grunts first, because they can cause confuse and silences. Mephilla can also call out for more grunt units, if you're lucky you might never see her call out another grunt. After 3 turns, Mephilla can use her summon attack which deals around 400 to 500 damage to your party. Best method of winning this battle is have white mages use the Default command and when she summons, have them use their brave command to out heal the damage taken from her summon attacks.

    Side Quest 4: Ranger's Asterisk

    Availability: Speaking to the Matriach in Florem after returning from the Water Temple.

    You will need to speak to three different NPCs in Florem. They are highlighted with a blue exclamation mark. Once you have spoken to all of them, leave Florem and head to the northeast area. You will forced into a battle with two grunts units. Defeat them. Head east until you see a large tree. Before you enter, I recommend you to save your game, because the next boss battle can be rough.

    Start the battle by killing the grunt units. If you the grunts are still alive they will most likely end up causing abnormal status on your party. Artemia hits extremely hard, she has two attacks, one is single deadly blow and the other one is her multiburst attack. The damage from her multiburst is quite random but it does around 2000 damage divided among your party. The key of winning this battle is to use your default command to stock up BP and defend against Artemia's attack as she usually like to save up 2 BP before unleashing all her attacks.

    Resume the main story by going to the Cave located east of Florem.

    Mount Fragmentum

    A really straightforward area, just head east until you have reach near to the Adventurer, save your game, a boss will be just right ahead.

    Land Turtle is an easy boss, it has a high physical defense and weak to Ice attacks. Magic is not the best choice of attacking this boss as it can cast reflect on itself. So just fight the Turtle like a regular monster.

    Leave Mount Fragmentum and go to Yulyana's house. Speak to Yulyana and watch the event. Return to Florem, and go to north section of town to see an event. After this, you can unlock the Red Mage and Valkyrie class.

    Side Quest 5: Red Mage's Asterisk

    Availability: Returning to Florem after speaking with Yulyana.

    Note: If you have the Rebuff Locket Accessory, equipped it on Edea for this event. It could be a huge advantage for the boss fight ahead.

    First speak to the man dress in red, he's highlighted with a blue exclamation mark in town. Watch the event. Finish the Saint Flower Festival event or else the next event won't trigger. Go to the inn and rest for the night. An event should trigger where Ringabel is lost in thought. Come back to Florem During night time, then head to the north area and speak to the girl highlighted with the blue exclamation mark and then go near DeRosa to trigger the next event. Ringabel and Tiz will decide to follow Fiore, and should end in a failure. Repeat the same thing for tomorrow, the event will end up in another failure and Edea will suggest that she should be bait. Wait another day and try the same thing again You will end up in the Underground Room, watch the event and then fight the boss.

    You will start this battle with Edea in a charmed state, so if you equipped Edea with the Rebuff locket, you can avoid the charm status at the beginning of battle, this will be an advantage against Fiore. Fiore is far from a pushover, his attacks can cause abnormal status, mostly inflicting fear and charm to your party. If you are feared, you cannot use your brave or default command, so use your remedy on your main attackers. Fiore can also recovery BP after suffering from damage from you. Fiore usually like to overuse his Brave command near to the negative, during that moment it is your best opportunity to spam your brave command to deal as much damage to him as possible.

    Side Quest 6: Valkyrie's Asterisk

    Availability: After Saint Flower Festival.

    Once you finish seeing Agne's speech in the Saint Flower Festival, leave Florem and return at night to see an event. Leave and go north to Witherwood.

    Einheria is a hard hitter just like her younger sister Artemia, however all of her special abilities requires BP to use, she usually will use Crescent Moon, or Jump. Her Crescent Moon does high damage too all of your allies and Jump does a massive damage to a single target on the next turn. If Einheria use Jump, It is the best time to use the default command, to defend and saved up BP. When Einheria's HP is running low, she will cast Spirit Barrier on herself which will use her MP as a shield to protect herself. The Spirit Barrier disappears after 10 turns or when you have drain all her MP.

    When you have completed the two side quest, travel to the ruins located to the west side of Florem.

    Twilight Ruins

    Twilight Ruins will have a lot of doors that are split into two. They can be open by pressing a switch right beside each door, when one door closes the other door will open. Navigate this dungeon until you have reach to the Adventurer. Save your game and prepare for a boss fight.

    Note: The end results will remain the same if you manage to defeat them.

    Leave the ruins and go back to the Water Temple. Before you enter the Crystal Room, save your game first.

    This boss can be pretty rough if you don't have someone that have attacks all skills. If you got a white magic user, cast shell on your party. When Rusalka strikes, he will disappear and reappear with a water attack and will split itself into four. If you have the Valkyrie class, the Crescent Moon skill is a great way of getting rid of the Rusalka Fakes in an instant. Once you have gotten rid of the fakes, Rusalka will shortly repeat this pattern again. Rusalka got a lot of HP, so this boss fight might take a while.

    Release the Crystal with X button, until Airy tells you to stop. You now gain another Support point. Leave the Water Temple and go to Florem and speak with Obaba. Return to Airship by going through Miasma Woods. If you pick up the summoner job class, you can get the wind summon "Hraesvelgr" by speaking to the Wind Sage in the Wind Temple.
