    I will be your friend

    I just got the game though

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    That is okay

    You can use me to Abilink higher levels onto the jobs for one character, or summon me to smite a boss that is pissing you off

    That is what friends do

    @PiptheFair And just because I worry you might be giving Nintendo too much credit

    I've added you, but you won't get a notification of that. You have to add me manually in the same menu where you found your own code

    Then you select "add friends" in the save menu on Bravely Default

    Do this every time you add a new friend or a group of new friends

    I really like this game but as I discussed with @Stilts it makes a terrible decision by handing you jobs one at a time instead of in big clumps, making it very hard to plan out characters if you don't want to look stuff up ahead of time

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    It's intentional

    You end up trying out multiple jobs over time instead of settling on just one

    It's important that it works this way because each job has advantages that can make it very, very powerful

    It takes so goddamn many Job Points to level, though, so it kind of makes me not want to switch jobs very much.

    once you get to chapter 5 you can get 999 jp per fight

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    Once you egt to Chapter 5 you can reliably grind in an area where you will get between 400-999 JP per battle if you keep up your unscathed link

    The game gates between Levels 8 and 9 because the expectation is that you only really need level 8 classes before you're able to get a lot more JP

    Don't worry about it. Relax. Take it slow.

    Just as a reminder, it takes more job points to go from level 8 to 9 than it does from 1 to 8 (give or take)

    So the idea is that you can quickly level up a bunch of classes to that level and get a feel for their flavor

    Also they decided to tie your basic stats to Job levels so you're actually weaker when you switch to a lower level job? I dislike this idea. It's cool when a job "clicks" and works well. There seems to be a "hump" right now though where a class just tends to suck at lower levels because you just have less stats working overtime for you in the background.

    I get wanting to have job levels matter for something other than unlocking abilities. Particularly when Abili-link exists. It's still sort of annoying.

    Someone got advice on how to handle the six dragons? I found the tip to use Stillness, but the debuff lasts longer than two turns.

    Ninjas with the red mage turn tables ability.

    Dragons only use physical attacks.

    Ninjas get secondary abilities that make physical attacks a joke.

    Ta dah!

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    It depends on if you want to cheese them or not. There's a few ways to handle them.

    Dispel will get rid of the debuff on you, for instance, and you can safely do that from behind Stillness (I don't think it dispels Stillness but be wary)

    You can just unload damage on them as fast as possible with some high-damage combinations.

    The breath attack is physical, so a ninja or a team of ninjas will trivialize them, though that method takes a while.

  • PlatyPlaty Registered User regular
    Before I level four Ninjas, does that mean you can evade the breath attack?

  • PlatyPlaty Registered User regular
    Okay, thanks for the advice, guys.

  • JarsJars Registered User regular
    the alternative to ninja cheese is having a templar or spirit master and casting rampart/enigma right after it uses the debuff

  • NaphtaliNaphtali Hazy + Flow SeaRegistered User regular
    so I'm still early in chapter 1 (yeah I've been bad about playing this), I think I have one of each class right now

    is the leveling of classes supposed to be criminally slow right now?

    There's eight chapters, so...

  • PlatyPlaty Registered User regular
    If you would like to grind out job levels, you should find an area where you can beat the enemies in one turn. In case you missed it, you can press Y to enter auto-battle mode and adjust battle speed with the d-pad. You can get fairly speedily to a certain level this way, but like Wyborn mentioned on this page, there's a major increase in JP requirements after level 8.

  • JarsJars Registered User regular
    it's pretty slow at the start but once you hit chapter 2 things pick up a bit and you start to get about 20 jp per fight

    Or even halfway through 6, depending

    I'm on chapter 8
    fighting my way up the command center, boss fights getting stupidly hard. Do I need to do this to gain access to the BONUS DUNGEON?!

  • WybornWyborn GET EQUIPPED Registered User regular
    Short answer is no.
    The bonus dungeon isn't marked on your map. Land your airship in the big-ass crater in the northern archipelago.

    I already got it, like, a week ago. I just can't actually play it yet...

    I really liked the demo though. The new classes they showed were fun and the new grinding mode they have where you can chain random encounters if you KO everything in a single round was neat.

    I stopped playing Fire Emblem so I could play the demo for this. My current plan is to switch back to FE and then play this later... but we'll see.

  • NaphtaliNaphtali Hazy + Flow SeaRegistered User regular
    Is there anything worth playing the demo for before playing this
