Bravely Default 2 is an expansive JRPG with a lot of gameplay mechanics. Here are some Bravely Default 2 tips and tricks to help you on your journey through Excillant.
Don’t Hoard the Goods
Throughout the game, you’ll pick up a whole cartload of ‘collectable resources’. Some gamers see an item but don’t see an explanation of their use and hold on to them for the entire game. If a Skyrim player will hold onto a metric ton of healing potions, they’ll hold onto things of unknown use.
While some of these items are required for the quest, they serve one other purpose. Gettin’ that MONEY. Sell them all like you’re trying to pay rent after quitting your job at a bad time. Your coin purse will thank you.
Stray From the Beaten Path
I’m the kind of gamer that explores every nook and cranny of an area before moving on. Might be why it took me twice as long as my friends to beat Diablo II. Bravely Default 2 has hidden treasure chests all over the place. The items inside can range from potions to vendor items.
There is even an ability, Divining Rod, that will tell you exactly how many chests remain in any area. Get more of that MONEY.
Bosses Aren’t Immune to Status Effects
Bosses are people too. Well, unless they aren’t people. Look, not all of my jokes are going to land. What I mean is that Bravely Default 2 isn’t like most other games where the bosses easily shrug off your attempts to sing them a sweet lullaby or slip some hemlock into their chamomile tea.
Bosses are just as susceptible to poison, sleep, etc. as you are. Debuff away!
While running around in the overworld, you’re able to swing your sword. You can use this to cut grass, which frequently ends up in money or items, or you can get the first strike in combat by hitting an enemy before it comes into contact with you.
Don’t Worry About the Previous Entries
Much like every main Final Fantasy entry, Bravely Default 2 is not connected to the previous two games, Bravely Default and Bravely Second: End Layer. Those two are connected, however.
You can dive into this game without having an iota of knowledge of the previous games.
I hope at least one of these Bravely Default 2 tips and tricks helped you through your playthrough. They certainly helped me. Game on.
