How to Unlock The Secondary Jobs in Octopath Traveler 2

How to Unlock The Secondary Jobs in Octopath Traveler 2

Experience the full potential of combat in Octopath Traveler 2 with the vast array of secondary jobs available. However, unlocking those jobs may seem daunting, since gathering the licenses to equip new secondary jobs requires completing some specific tasks. This guide details all the job guild locations and how to complete their corresponding licenses in Octopath Traveler 2.

Merchant's Guild

The Merchants Guild is the starting point for any player looking to unlock secondary jobs in Octopath Traveler 2. As you progress through the game, more guilds will become available, each with its own unique secondary classes. While the primary class of each character is pre-determined, the secondary jobs are up to the player to acquire.

Secret jobs are something entirely different. Rather than requiring licenses, they can only be unlocked by making specific choices throughout the game. These secret jobs offer access to powerful abilities, but require a significant amount of effort to venture out and discover them.

Obtaining licenses for secondary jobs in Octopath Traveler 2 requires completing a variety of tasks. Some licenses are unlocked through completing main story chapters, while others come from challenging sidequests. All tasks can be completed at any point in the game, but many are significantly harder if the character is below a certain level.

Dancer's Guild

The Dancer's Guild of Atlasdam is the earliest example of a job guild that requires a license. To receive the license, the player must complete a quest from Lady Yulivel. She can be found at The Swiftperch Inn in Goldshore and will task you with finding her lost music box. Once you have found the music box and returned it to Lady Yulivel, she will grant you your first license - 'Dancer's Mark'.

Other guilds have different tasks, ranging from defeating powerful monsters to finding rare items. It's important to pay attention to the specific conditions of each quest and prepare accordingly, as some of these tasks can be quite difficult. For players who are still early in their Octopath 2 journey, our advice is to focus on completing the main story.

Successfully completing quests and gathering licenses is only half the battle for accessing secondary jobs. It's also necessary to track down the individual job guild locations. These vary from town to town, and in some cases, must be found in out of the way places.

Warriors Guild

In Northreach, for example, the Warriors Guild is hidden away in a derelict shop at the edge of town. The entrance is located behind a stack of crates, so make sure to explore every nook and cranny of the city. In S'warki Harbor, the Apothecary Guild is tucked away in the basement of the inn, accessible only by taking the stairs in the far north of town.

Scholars Guild

The Scholars Guild can be found in the city of Bolderfall. They offer a variety of unique spells and abilities, as well as access to the powerful Sage job. To receive the license, players must venture into the Royal Library and recover the lost texts within. Be careful while exploring the library - it's home to some dangerous monsters.

Hunters Guild

The Hunters Guild can be found in the city of Sunshade. It offers access to the Bowmaster job and its powerful range attacks. Obtaining the license for the Hunters Guild requires defeating a powerful monster known as the White Lord. This monster can be found in the easternmost part of Sunshade, and is no pushover. Prepare accordingly before tackling this difficult quest.

Thief's Guild

The Thief's Guild is located in the bustling metropolis of Victors Hollow. Here, players earn access to the Thief job and its variety of stealth-based skills. The guild's license is acquired by completing a quest from a shady character named Goltric. Finding him can be tricky, so try asking around the city for his whereabouts.

Clerics Guild

The Cleric's Guild is located in the city of Wispermill. It grants access to the Cleric job and its powerful healing abilities. To unlock the guild's license, players must explore the depths of the nearby Minotaur's Den and recover an ancient relic. The relic is well guarded, however, and the monsters inside the den are formidable foes.

Shogun's Guild

The Shogun's Guild is located in the oriental city of Atlasdam. It offers access to the samurai job and its devastatingly powerful sword techniques. The guild's license requires a thorough exploration of the nearby mountain pass to locate an ancient shrine. Be careful while exploring - the area is full of vicious monsters.

Sage's Guild

The Sage's Guild is located in the castle of Enoch Village. In exchange for its license, players must prove their knowledge of magic by correctly answering a series of questions about the magical arts. Those who make it through the trial will gain access to the Sage job and its devastating array of spells.

Bard's Guild

The Bard's Guild is located in the tropical city of Azure Coast. It grants access to the Bard job and its powerful songs. The guild's license requires players to complete a lengthy quest involving the search for a legendary harp. Along the way, they'll have to cross rivers, fight monsters, and ultimately face a powerful banshee.

Conjurer's Guild

The Conjurer's Guild is located deep in the depths of the Stillsnow Wilds. It offers access to the Conjurer job and its powerful summoning abilities. The guild's license can only be obtained by passing a test administered by a powerful witch. Those who succeed will be granted access to powerful spells and creatures.

Rune Master's Guild

The Rune Master's Guild is located in the desert city of Sunshade. It grants access to the Rune Master job and its powerful abilities. To gain the guild's license, players must complete a quest involving the retrieval of a powerful magical staff. Be prepared - the staff is guarded by powerful monsters.

Arcanist's Guild

The Arcanist's Guild is located in the jungle city of Wispermill. It offers access to the Arcanist job and its powerful spells. To obtain the guild's license, players must venture into the depths of the nearby cave and defeat a powerful golem. Be aware - the Golems are incredibly powerful and can't be subdued with brute strength alone.

Octopath Traveler 2 offers an incredibly diverse array of secondary jobs, with dozens of possible class combinations. From snipers to magicians, there's no shortage of options available. Gathering the necessary licenses and locating the job guilds can be a challenge, but the rewards make it worth the effort. For those willing to capitalize on the unique battle system, secondary jobs are the key to unlocking the full potential of Octopath Traveler 2.
