Bravely Default 2 Prologue Walkthrough

Main Objectives

Halcyonia to Outlaw's Hideout

Objective
1 After the lengthy scene, head outside the inn.
Note Your objective is to leave Halcyonia, however, you have minimal gold so head southwest and follow the path leading to a small house to get a buckler.
2 Once done with your preparation, exit Halcyonia.
3 After the short cutscene, follow the marker to the east .
Feel free to cut some grass to net some items.
4 After the scene, return to Halcyonia.
5 Exit Halcyonia again then head to the house up north, the Outlaw's Hideout.
Note This will be the first dungeon you'll encounter in the game. When in a dungeon, saving can only be done at save points. You can return to the entrance by using a Teleport stone so always have one with you in case of emergencies.
6 For this dungeon, just keep following the main corridor, there are several chests on some of the room however so feel free to explore.
7 After finding the save point, rest at a tent and save then prepare for your first boss battle.

Sidequests Available Quests

9 Return to your room at the inn.
10 After you're done doing quests, head east into the Vale of Sighs.
Note The enemies of the Vale of Sighs are mostly weak to bows and staves. Equip those weapons to make your way into the Vale easier.
11 Keep on following the path until a cutscene about Sir Sloan happens.
Near the first save point, you'll see a large enemy called the Hecatoncheir, it doesn't reward much and is a tougher battle than the normal mobs. Focus on defaulting and HP recovery if you wish to fight it.
12 After the scene, head north to find the grave.
13 Follow the path back to the previous savepoint then take the path eastward then prepare for a boss fight.

Selene and Dag are the first bosses you'll encounter in Bravely Default 2. Selene and Dag possesses the White Mage and Vanguard classes respectively so taking them out will allow you to have a tank and healer for your party!

How to Beat Selene and Dag

Horten

Bravely Default II - Horten.png

Horten posses the Monk Asterisk. He is also capable of countering physical attacks so relying on Sir Sloan's attacks and your Black Magics is the key to winning the fight!

How to Beat Horten

Adam

Bravely Default 2 - Adam

Adam, as shown in the many trailers, is one of the biggest baddest out there. You simply don't stand a chance right now. This is an unwinnable battle.

Obtainable Asterisks in the Prologue

Black Mage

Bravely Default 2 - Black Mage Portrait

The first class you'll obtain in the game (aside from the Freelancer which is the default job). It specializes in black magic and laying waste to enemies using elemental magics.

Black Mage Job Abilities and Best Sub-Jobs

White Mage

Bravely Default 2 - White Mage Portrait

The second job you'll obtain together with the vanguard class. The White Mage is a healing specialist and is a staple job to have in every party. Make sure to have at least one member that specializes in white magic!

White Mage Job Abilities and Best Sub-Jobs

Vanguard

Bravely Default 2 - Vanguard Portrait

The picture perfect idea of a tank. The Vanguard controls enemy aggro and redirects enemy attacks unto himself. Together with its high HP, defense, and compatibility with heavy armor, it'll take a lot of hits to bring down a Vanguard!

Vanguard Job Abilities and Best Sub-Jobs

Monk

Bravely Default 2 - Monk Portrait

A barehanded fighter. The Monk relies on not having equipment to make the most of its damage. It's also capable of unleashing strong attacks at the price of the character's HP. A worthwhile class to master!
