Chapter 2 Tips

Level up your Gambler

Bravely Default II - Gambler Portrait

The Gambler class has the ability Flash the Cash which can deal massive damage to enemies at the cost of PG.

While there are other combative options, Flash the Cash is one of the most efficient methods of dishing out damage especially for your support characters.

Gambler Job Abilities and Best Sub-Jobs

Keep on Capturing monsters!

Bravely Default II - Capture Monster
The Beastmaster can use a stronger version of Off the Leash called Off the Chain which can deal stronger damage from the normal Off the Leash at the cost of BP.

Utilizing monster moves is crucial for some of the bosses you'll encounter on this chapter.

Beastmaster Job Abilities and Best Sub-Jobs

Use Examine / Magnifying Glasses on the Picto Enemies When You Fight Them

Picto Enemies
Bravely Default II - Picto-MonaPicto-Mona Bravely Default II - Picto-BelethPicto-Beleth
Bravely Default II - Picto-AmritaPicto-Amrita

You'll have to fight each of these monsters twice during the entirety of these chapters.

Using Examine or Magnifying Glass on them once for each time you fight them can save you some turn on your battle against Galahad.

Capture Undines in Savalon

Bravely Default II - Undine.png

If you don't wish to use the Beastmaster as an attacker, at least capture some Undines on Savalon. Their ability, White Wind, is a free AOE heal and is extremely valuable during fights where you need to save up BP.

It is also particularly effective against the last boss of Chapter 2 since she counters white magics.
