Typically, only the Main Job's Specialities take effect when in combat. However, there are several ways where you can activate your Sub-Job's Specialities. Read on to learn how to unlock specialities for your sub-Job in Bravely Default 2 (Bravely Default II) for the Nintendo Switch.

Speciality Mechanics

By equipping a Job as your main Job, you gain access to that Job's specialities which can be found in the Job Menu. The first specialty is available by default, while the other one is unlocked at Level 12. Typically, your character can only take advantage of their main Job's specialities, but there are different abilities and equipment that allow you to activate your sub-Job's specialities.

Abilities that Activate Sub-Job Specialities
