Bravely Default 2 Chapter 4 Walkthrough

Main Objectives (Choose Your Route)

The objectives below can be done at any order. You can head to any of the previously visited areas but once you have chosen an area, you won't be able to leave until you have vanquished the enemy that's causing the mayhem. For our guide, we'll be heading to Wiswald first then Savalon then Halcyonia.

Wiswald Route

1 Upon arriving in Wiswald, you'll notice that not a single soul is in sight. Talk to Adelle first.
2 After talking to Adelle, head to Elvis' location near the Magic institute.
3 Head to the inn to find Gloria.
4 After the cutscenes, you'll instantly head to the treetop tower. Start making your way up using the new staircase at the center.
5 After the rescue scene, make your way out of Wiswald and head to the Wiswald Woods up north.
6 After reaching Lily's doll, take it then return to the Inn in Wiswald.
7 After the scene, exit Wiswald then head west into the Wrecked Institute.
8 There aren't any suprises in this dungeon. As long as you're at least level 40 or above with a decent team, the dungeon should be no problem.
9 At the 2nd Save Point is where you'll fight Vigintio

3 Proceed to Savalon's prison. Prepare for a boss fight.
4 There will be a boss fight but the battle will abruptly end after a few turns have passed.

4 Start chopping the grass nearby to get materials for Glintstones.
5 Return to Halcyonia and report to Gloria inside the inn.
6 Talk to the innkeeper to proceed with the story.
You won't be able to save after this prompt so make sure to do so before proceeding.
7 Head inside the palace.
8 Keep on following the path until you reach the king.
9 Exit Halcyonia's prison.
There will be three groups of soldiers that will intercept your path. Defeat them.

Into Holograd!

1 Make your way to Halcyonia and enter the previously blocked path southwest of the city.
2 Talk to the guard stationed on the end of Halcyonia's new path.
3 Continue heading west until you reach Holograd. There will be some cutscenes along the way.
4 Despite being at war, feel free to explore Holograd City. You can rest at the inn, talk to the soldiers and people, and even buy some equipment!
5 Once your preparation is complete, head to Holograd Army's HQ located north.
This is a dungeon and you'll be facing Holograd soldiers. Unlike the previous soldiers, they are weaker and comparable to normal enemies on the map.
6 The savepoint leading to the 4th floor is a point of no return. Make sure to save your game and explore the current state of the game before proceeding.
Note The Nocta Wizzys in the area can counter physical attacks with charm. Equip your party accordingly to avoid accidental team wipes.
7 After clearing the bridge and reaching the elevator, use the lift and head to the Grand Hall.
There's a shop to the left of the lift as well as a savepoint. Stock up on items then head right to face the final boss of the chapter.
