List of Contents
・High all-round stats make the bastion an ideal damage sponge.
・It's best to make sure their invincibility-inducing abilities are in effect at all times for extra peace of mind.

|Double Default||Command||35% HP||10||For three turns, Defaulting will increase BP by two instead of one.|
|Sanctuary||Command||1 BP||11||Shut up shop so that allied and enemy HP, MP and BP cannot be changed until the user's next turn. (However, usage costs for any abilities used in the meantime will still be deducted.)|

As mention above in the how to play section, learning which barrier to use is crucial to the Bastion. Block those attacks and emerge unscathed!
A permanent default state? It comes with slower turns but for tanks who have abilities that lasts until their next turn, this is a minor hindrance and it is an ability that is worth learning.
|Default Guard||When Defaulting, damage received is further reduced at a cost of 15 MP. The MP cost is incurred even if the damage is nullified by immunity or absorbed.|
|Fortitude||When Defaulting, one BP will be earned when attacked, at a cost of 15 MP.|
Speciality 2 Can only be learned after leveling the Bastion to Level 12.
Strike all enemies with a powerful light-imbued magical attack and erect a barrier that will protect all allies from a single physical or magical attack. Cannot be combined with Rampart or Vallation.
|Use Default x 13.|
Below are the weapons proficiencies for the Bastion Job. Refer to this section to know which weapons are best suited for the Bastion Job.
As you progress the story of Chapter 4, you'll have to save Halcyonia from Lonsdale's rule. By defeating him and freeing Halcyonia, you'll be granted the Bastion Asterisk.
Heavyweight crashing down! The Bastion, unlike other tanks in the game, is still actually capable of dishing out some damage. Partner this with the Dragoon's Jump ability and a Sub-Job Speciality 1 combo and your jump attacks will start dealing crazy damage.
Another combo that attempts to use the Sub-Job Speciality 1 build. An infinitely regenerating tank that keeps on putting up barriers for your team?
