Secondary Jobs / Advance Classes

  • Inventor
  • Conjurer
  • Arcanist

Octopath Traveler has a unique combat system that allows each character to switch into a different job, so long as you have that job unlocked. But only one character can have a secondary job unlocked at a time, at least until you complete tasks for that job’s associated guild.

This combat system is fantastic, as it allows you to build your team how you want, adjusting them to the challenges they’ll face. Octopath Traveler saw some truly amazing builds, like Runelord Tessa, and it will only be a matter of time before people figure out what the next broken character and job is.
