Alright so, I've finished the game and been trying different class setups. I found one that's SO OP, that it can beat ANY boss wit just a bit of luck. I just beat Lucifer [+] this morning. Here's how you do it, but beware of class and ability spoilers:


First of all, make all 4 character the same.
Class:
Dark Knight
Job Command:
Doesn't matter. But if you want, you can pick Spiritism or Holy Arts to put up Enigma/Greater Spirit Ward or Rampart for extra protection.
Support Abilities:
Stand Ground [Freelancer,3]
Rise from Dead [Vampire,1]
Auto-Potion [Salve-Maker,1]
Equipment:
Doesn't really matter here either, but you should equip something that prevents status ailments and increases your speed.
How it works:
With this setup, keep using Minus Strike to deal high damage all the time! With Stand Ground and Auto-Potion, you'll rarely die, but if you die, there's the chance of your revival with Rise from Dead. Don't forget to stack on your potions too!
For each round, use ONE Minus Strike with each character, then auto it out to victory! This is way too op though, so maybe you shouldn't use it...

Hmm... What level should you be when fighting the water thingy while trying to awaken the water crystal?
Because my team is getting wiped out.
Anges has something like only 30 defence while Ringabel has something like 20 defence.
Adea has something like 109 defence, though.

Anyway, a good level would be Chapter * 10 + 10. So in your case... 30?
I think that's about what I was.
I suggest you first try to only focus attack on the real boss. A way to notice him is to Examine him, then tilt right with the analog "stick" and you'll see which one's the real.
If that doesn't work, try taking out one clone after the other. Oh, and make sure to hit the Charmed ally with your weakest OR fastest character.

^You're going to want Abate Water, which I think is the Lvl 3 White Mage skill. Just grind everyone (one at a time) with the white mage, then equip everyone with Abate Water. You're also going to want a Spell Sword, perhaps a Black Mage, a high level White Mage, and a Valkyrie(or perhaps a Valkyrie with Spell sword), so grind those if you don't have them.

I don't have the Valkyrie class.
So should I grind everyone up to level 30?
What is the easiest way to do that?
Everyone is only level 22.
And if I reclass, for example, Ringabel into a White Mage and then change him back into a Black Mage again after, will he have to restart his job leveling up again?

^Go get the Valkyrie class. What are you doing not getting the Valkyrie class? And no, your job levels don't reset. They all start a level 1 when you get them, but then they stay at whatever you level them up to.

He doesn't have a ton of health. Just wipe him out before he attacks. You have the Spell Fencer, right? Attach Lightning as the elemental ability for all of your peoples' specials. Go into battle and hit him with your specials four times in a row. That'll buff all your stats and take off most of his health, if you're not too underleveled. Have your SF place lightning magic on his/her sword and wail on it. Use your mage to unleash your most powerful lightning attacks. He kept killing me when I encountered him, so I had to take him out in a couple of turns.

My guys were around level 20 at the time and I'm playing on Hard mode, so if it worked for me it should work for you. Just remember to make your Special attacks lightning elemental in nature.

I agree that, regardless if this works for you or not, you need to get the Valkyrie class. It's awesome. My Edea is a Valkyrie(dom)/Spell Fencer(sub) and she cuts through most enemies like a hot knife through butter.

@Kewlan What's different in new game+? Is there a reason to play it besides just playing again?

I've never really played through a traditional JRPG before, outside of half of Final Fantasy V before I lost it years ago, but would this be a good place to start? Everyone says it's really good and everything, but they always mention fans of traditional JRPGs so I want to be sure before I think about getting it.

@joetherocker I haven't played many JRPGs besides fire emblem, despite me calling it my favorite genre. I'd say Bravely Default is beginner friendly, without too much hand-holding. The story is good so far (only on chapter 6) and, if you do not change the random encounter rate a lot and explore most of the dungeons , you won't need to grind for exp at all. The only thing you ever need to grind for is money, but there is a relatively easy exploit that gives you infinite money. This, however, will not give you incredibly overpowered weapons. The job system is easy to use and you can change character's jobs whenever you want. I'd recommend downloading the demo and playing for a little. It gives a good idea of the battle system, but there is no story and the jobs are unbalanced. Also, completing parts of the demo will give you items in the actual game, but it is not worth playing to get them all if you decide to get the game.

@Maelstrom I'm not sure, but I know you can fight the Adventurer and his Fox somehow... so maybe that's related?

@Joetherocker It is a good start, I think... At first it might be hard to understand the combat, but you'll get it after a while.
I'm not a traditional JRPG fan either, but I have played a few back in the days.
Give it a chance, I'm sure you'll love it!

Bravely Default is ultimately FF5's successor. Go play it.

Do all the "optional" story events first. This will give you more exp and more jobs to choose from. Just avoid the one in Florem for a while. It can be a pain

I'm about to face the Fire Temple boss.
All of my characters excluding Tiz are level 32.
Is that a high enough level?

That looks good. I meant the red mage in the city of florem. I recommend getting all the asterisks you missed as soon as possible. More jobs means more job combinations and more abilities to choose from

I now have the Red Mage, Performer and Valkyrie asterisks.
I still need the pirate and salve maker asterisks.
But I don't know where the pirate one is.
Everyone is level 35-38 (Tiz got KO'd right when I defeated the performer, so he is falling behind).
Should I do the fire temple boss now?

Edit: I only got this game 3 days ago, and I've all ready put 21 hours into it.
This game is more addicting than crack.
