Borrow Your Buddy’s Bravely Default Job Levels

By Spencer . August 24, 2012 . 4:15am

bdr27Bravely Default: Flying Fairy has more social features than some so-called social RPGs. Siliconera already reported on a feature that lets you summon a friend as if you were summoning Shiva.


The Abilink system lets you borrow a job level. Edea, for example, would be a level one White Mage, but if you pick someone on your friend list with a higher White Mage job level you can borrow their skill mastery to Edea and boost her job level to level 9.

Square Enix also shared new screenshots of three more job classes. Valkyrie shares a lot in common with the Dragoon job. This female-only class has the Jump ability, which lets her avoid enemy attacks while in the sky. Valkyries also have Crescent Moon and Super Jump, a more powerful version of Jump.

Summoners can call powerful creatures in to attack. Which creatures? Square Enix hasn’t announced the summon list yet. This class is also gifted with a wellspring of MP.

Hunters are bow masters that can deal extra damage with targeting attacks like Wing Killer, a skill that hurts flying enemies. Multi Burst fires a barrage of arrows that hit random enemies.

Key enemies in Bravely Default: Flying Fairy have jobs and the same skills as your party members.. This batch focuses on the Blood Rose Bunch.

    every time i see those screenshots i can’t believe this is on 3DS, the art direction for this game is incredible.

  • Anna Scruton

    The Hunter class is so freaking adorable! 

    • EverEndingStory

      Agreed. Love the wolf head w/ pompadour.

      • AuraGuyChris

        And the arrow quiver being your own tail.

        That’s…kind of a risky spot to have those.

  • rinalicat

    Aw, I can’t decide if I’d be a hunter or a Summoner!!

    • XiaomuArisu

       How about a summoner which summons hunters?
      Or a Valkyrie.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    cosplaying as a hunter..

  • Prinnydoom

    More i see of this the better it gets ^______^

  • I can’t wait to get my Valkyrie =^_^=

  • Elemiel

    Why are the character sprites so adorable? I just want to squish them in my arms.

  • Andres Pena

    hope they make a necromancer class <3

  • Kitestwinblades

    This is looking like a MUST HAVE for the 3DS. Cant Wait X3

  • Wow. Y’ know, I think the 3DS really has defeated that connotation of being “the system with no games on it”. If and when this comes stateside, I’ll have to seriously consider investing in one!

  • Suicunesol

    I think this is the flashiest batch of screenshots I’ve seen yet. :O It’s really bright and colorful, but juxtaposed against a lot of dark backgrounds with high contrast really makes it vibrant.

  • I couldn’t be any more hyped for this one even if I tried with all my might. I was rather wary at first to realize the dragoon class was being ditched in favor of the Valkyrie class (yes, I am a purist :3), but seeing how amazing they’re going to look in the game, I’m well over that now.

    And I wonder…will we still have the male party members use the Dragoon job? It’d be swell, having Tiz and Ringabell as dragoons and the ladies as Valkyrie.

    Now, if they get Blue Mages there, I’ll just explode with hype and excitment. Blue Mages are my fav in FF, closely followed by Dragoons!

  • Anesia Hunter

    summon creatures… eidolons? chibi shiva! (more like a chibi version of the ffx and ffx-2 shiva)

  • Luca B.

    Want this game so fucking hard.
