This is a guide to the Pictomancer Job class in Bravely Default 2 (Bravely Default II) for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to know all the details about the Pictomancer Job including its abilities, specialties, stat modifiers, and weapon proficiencies!
List of Contents
・Pictomancers specialise in abilities that negatively affect enemy stat-otherwise known as 'debuffs'.
・They can also turn these aboities on themselves, in which case they have a reinforcing effect instead.
・By combining both aspects, a pictomancer can weaken others, strengthen themselves, and deal big damage into the bargain.
|Magic||Magic Defense||Healing Power||Agility|
The Pictomancer's main role is applying debuffs to enemies. They might not be the most usable character when it comes to fighting normal enemies but debuffing the strongest monsters allows you a fighting chance!
While debuffing is the Pictomancer's main focus, that doesn't mean that it can only use debuffs in itself. The Pictomancer can use powerful light elemental and shadow elemental attacks so once the enemies got weakened, unleash a suprise burst to defeat them in one fell swoop!
