An often neglected move in RPGs, Poison will allow you to inflict ahem.. poison on the enemy. In Bravely Default 2, several bosses are susceptible to this ailment and it is a great source of damage against them.
Night-time is a time period in the game where enemies are more abundant and stronger. Having an ability to restore your combat power during long fights at Night is essential to grinding your character's levels and Job levels.
|Regenerative Default||Defaulting restores a little MP. The amount restored depends on the user's level.|
|High-Velocity Spells||Prevents all attack spells from being nullified or absorbed. Will not bypass damage-halving or reflect effects.|
Speciality 2 Can only be learned after leveling the Black Mage to Level 12.
Strike all enemies with a powerful water-imbued magical attack.
|Magical Defense +30%|
|Use Black Magic x 13.|
Below are the weapons proficiencies for the Black Mage Job. Refer to this section to know which weapons are best suited for the Black Mage Job.
The Black Mage Asterisk is an automatic addition to your party at the early stages of the game.
The Bard class allows you to provide buffs to your allies. There will come a time where casting offensive spells may not be the best course of action so gaining a support skill for your allies is a great skill for a Black Mage. It also opens up the ability to amp up your magic stat when enemies are defaulting so it's not an entirely defensive Sub-Job for the Black Mage
Bard Job Abilities and Proficiencies
The Oracle Sub-Job is great for the Black Mage since it can fully utilize the Black Mage's High Velocity Spells to make all the three spell casts hit enemy at full damage. You can also use Elemental Impairment to make enemies more vulnerable to your spell casts to deal even more damage!
