■ Systems

In battle, it is necessary to look out for the “Counters” and “Jammers” that many strong enemies possess. And if you feel like you are not strong enough, you can level up your jobs through “consecutive battles.”

Counters and Jammers

Certain monsters and many strong enemies may have a skill to counter your actions. These are “Counters,” which counter against attacks, and “Jammers,” which counter against actions other than attacks, such as a counter to using an item. In battles against strong enemies, plan your strategy to avoid severe counterattacks from these skills.

—Counters and Jammers have a fixed chance of being triggered by your actions.

Bravely Default II

—The Hunter’s support ability, “Retaliation Evasion,” can evade physical attack Counters and Jammers.

Bravely Default II

Consecutive Battles

When you touch a monster on the field and break into battle, any nearby monsters will get dragged in, triggering “consecutive battles.” While there are risks involved since you will have to battle as many monsters as you drag in, you can earn a significant payout of Job Points depending on the number of consecutive battles. If you want to earn Job Points, round up enemies and aim for a consecutive battles bonus.

—By using items, you can trigger consecutive battles against monsters of a specific race.

—Your BP will remain the same from the first battle to the second. Consider pacing yourself so you do not run out of breath in the first match.
