Bravely Default 2 Arcanist Job Overview
In Bravely Default 2 Arcanist is a powerful mage, but damaging your own party is a major drawback. You can obviously turn it into your benefit by equipping enough elemental resistance gear to nullify or absorb the elements, but that’s not always feasible or worth the effort. The Arcanist specialties are at best underwhelming and at worst an outright drawback.

MP Regen and Magic Amp are both must-have passives for magic users. Even though Arcanist has the most powerful spells, it’s not possible to get Chainspell, Arcanist skillset and Freelancer stat bonuses all at once, and it’s better to cast Quake 8x with Freelancer stat bonuses than cast Meteor and have to choose between max stats and Chainspell.

Chapter Unlocked: 4

Upgrade Location: Halls of Tribulation V

Specialties
