Octopath Traveler 2 Secondary Jobs Guide

Learn new jobs to learn new skills.

Octopath Traveler 2 is a sequel to Octopath Traveler, Square Enix's JRPG. In true turn-based RPG fashion, Octopath Traveler uses jobs or classes to determine a character's skills, abilities, and more. While each character has a primary class, they can also use a secondary class. This may leave you wondering how secondary classes work in Octopath Traveler 2.

Octopath Traveler 2 - Secondary Jobs, Explained

Each character in Octopath Traveler 2 has a unique job or class. This determines their skills and playstyles, which can be modified with secondary jobs, though these must be unlocked. Combining a character's main job with a secondary job creates new combinations and powerful units. Here are all character's jobs in Octopath Traveler 2.

  • Osvald: Scholar
  • Castti: Apothecary
  • Throné: Thief
  • Ochette: Hunter
  • Partitio: Merchant
  • Agnea: Dancer
  • Temenos: Cleric
  • Hikari: Warrior

Each character can be given a secondary job comprising the eight jobs in the game, though there are also secret jobs. However, a secondary job can only be used one at a time, meaning you cannot make your entire party have the Dancer job as a secondary job. You can assign a secondary job to one character and switch it to a different character later. Mixing jobs is a great way to experiment and determine the best combinations.
