Bravely Default 2 Pictomancer Jobs Overview
In Bravely Default 2 Pictomancer is kind of a reverse Bard. The main problem with Pictomancer is not that it’s a bad class, it’s that its competition among the other jobs is too stiff. It would make a fantastic sub-job for an attack mage thanks to its access to Light and Dark spells… but Red Mage, once you unlock Sub-Specialty 2, and Spiritmaster are way better choices for a sub-job.

Its debuffs are great for a support character, but it’s really difficult to pass up Spiritmaster on a support. For the brief window between when you unlock Pictomancer and when you get Spiritmaster, it makes a decent sub-job for white or black magic users. Frankly, by the endgame, it’s really just better to use broken OP damage setups than rely on debuffs, which makes it hard to find a place for a Pictomancer on an endgame team.
