YOu have a very well rounded team, but you will need to tweak it a bit in the duchy fight. But once you beat 'em (2nd round). It'll feel good. Hahah

Beat them first time. I guess I should put it into hard mode. My other way of max damage was to give edea 2 bloody shield and defence + 30% and 10%. A little bit overkill, but then you just spam super charge with 550+ defence. Also, for the earth temple boss, I equipped both healing lore and holy one on my white mage and did 9999 damage with just a curada

@Rapido There is an exploit (legal, no glitches) that gives you infinite money in the form of elixirs.......

You can make money much faster and easier by just automating combat against an Earth Golem in the Earth Temple.

One Person hits the Golem and another does Big Pharma to charge it for heals. You will get like 500 money every few seconds. It adds up quite quickly especially if you do it while eating lunch or something.

At high levels you don't even need to heal but if folks are worried they can have a third person use a blessed shield on the party.

Seconding the Big Pharma method of earning pg. Once you get things going and figure out the rhythm for your party, you can just set it to Auto and forget about it, lol. I think I had one battle going on its own for just over an hour while i played me some sudoku on the side, wound up about 500,000 pg richer with zero effort on my part after the initial few turns. it's almost a game to see how long you can keep a battle going at that point before your party accidentally wins, haha :3

Yeah I had it run a few times while I was sleeping. If memory serves it was the original inspiration for writing guides about Bravely Default. I started looking for ways to exploit the games mechanics without actually editing it (which isn't as easy these days as it once was).

Pretty cool game. I really need to get around to beating it though. All 99's, Max on all jobs, and I'm just now finishing Chapter 5 >.>...

...<.<...

Same reason I couldn't start another character on Diablo 3: ROS, those Paragon levels are just too appealing. [I might be a level hoarder]

I've attached the guide instructions for anyone that isn't aware of the trick or tries it and has it fail. You should have 100% luck with this, if you DO fail you'll want to buy a lottery ticket because you are critting like a madman.

From: http://www.theios.net/2014/02/20/ricos-bravely-default-money-...

The Checklist

Blessed Shield x 1
Agnes without a weapon & Job changed to a Spellcaster.
One character with Merchant at Job Level 11 [I personally used Tiz, seeing as Ringabel is my Thief].

Next go to the second floor of the Wind Temple (which you’ve likely already found, so I won’t say where it is). Make sure that you have your non-merchant, non-Agnes character hooked up with the Blessed Shield. If you want you can put Blessed Shields on all 4 of your characters, this will help keep things more certain but isn’t necessary. Get into a fight with a Golem (kill any other mobs with him but don’t hit him yet). Once the Golem is alone do the following list in any order.

Have your non-merchant, non-Agnes, non-Blessed Shield character use Default.
Have your Blessed Shield character use their Blessed Shield on the party (This will cast Cura on the party, usually for about 200 life).
Have Agnes physically hit the enemy, make sure she’s equipped with something that does less than 500 damage usually. I find that unarmed is probably best.
Have your merchant use “Big Pharma” on the Golem.

What does this do? One character hits the Golem for between 200 and 500 damage, another heals him for that much and you get exactly that much in money back, a third heals the party for 200 damage (you are only taking between 1 and 50 by this point), and the last is just blocking.

This means that every turn you earn about 250 pg. Press Y and let your party keep doing this on repeat, crank up the speed to >>>>, and now you’ve got yourself a money making monstrosity! Leave the game running overnight and you should come back to roughly 1 million PG (almost on the spot, its rather consistent). Assuming that you kept Agnes unarmed you shouldn’t hit the Golem for more than 500 on anything but crits, this is good because you want to keep him healing from Big Pharma fast enough to not die while you are asleep.


Upon reading that I realize that I'm oddly bubbly when I write about games. hardens heart Need to be a bitter old man! Contain it, Rico, contain it!

@maelstrom yep good setup. Though you will need 2 BPs with one supercharge. But the overall defense will make up for it. The Earth Temple boss will die in one turn with just one Elixir using Bravely Second and will deal 110,000 thousand damage.

If you use mimic, it only takes 1 BP for each additional charge

Alright, I got stuck. Anyone have strategies for defeating the group of 4 on floor 49 in chapter 8? Quada keeps making everyone fire-weak and mephilia and Ominas spam fire attacks in the same turn, wiping out my level 99 party (with the exception of edea)

@maelstrom I Do, i've defeated them all, including on the 2nd round where you will have to fight them all again, non-stop w/o rest. My Strategy, which is the same I use to defeat them all in series of battles is below.

-1 Pirate/Bushido with buff up, two handed, PATK +20% abilities, Hyper Bracers equipped. and the Axe that increases agi that you can buy in norende village. Prefrerably Brave Suit equipped for that extra BP early on.
-1 Swordmaster/pirate combo the same abilities as above or the same setup as above. I just like to mixmatch things. Hermes Shoes equipped with Mutsu no Kami.
-1 character with any of the above or your personal setup that can do 9999 damage on the first turn using brave 4 times. My setup here is a monk with thief ability (master thief) because I like to steal stuff from bosses and can still do almost 9999 damage using qigong wave with Natural Talent setup and no equipped. That is if you would like to take the risk.
-last character is your typical healer setup. Preferably, a Spritism/White Mage combo (higher stat than base White Mage) with Holy one with Group Cast All Abilities (essential)

The goal of the setup is to kill mephilia the First Turn. to avoid being wiped out early and then build to strengthen the team to finish the other. First Turn: brave 4 times on the 3 attack characters, Free Lunch>Amped Strike combo. This will do about 89991 damage and will kill mephilia (she has 85,000) HP. The healer will cast reflect on all the characters (because of group cast all, it will only take one cast of reflect for all characters). This will negate ominas's Firaga and in turn will render Qada's Fire Bane Useless.

Now what you need to do to Win: Make sure to cast DISPEL each time sage yulyana casts reflect on the entire enemy party. If you don't, They will cast firaga on themselves and that'll reflect the damage to one of your character (even with reflect status) and do 9999 damage (insta kill for those whose HP is not over 9999). Kill Qada Last: Remember Qada has that annoying dark breath skill, casting damage the same as his missing HP (9999), so HEAL Qada everytime he suffers damage. You can have your main healer heal him, or your other atk characters using items (Yes, even using an Elixer if need be). Kill Ominas first: After the other characters recover from braving and killing Mephilia the First Turn, just do the same Free Lunch>Amped strike combo, he has about 90K HP I think, so no sweat. Just remember to cast Reflect on Party and dispel on the enemy party to avoid being killed by reflected Firaga up until you defeact Ominas. Next, Kill sage Yulyana. (you know the Drill). Once the other 3 are out, Qada is no longer a threat, His main damage will be Poison Potion (?) and dark Breatk. Just make sure Default to max and Strike hard in one go to lessen the possible turns Qada can cast dark breath.

NOTE: You can further tweak the about setup, in the end, how you deal damage is up to you. You can probably change the Monk/Thief setup to Monk/Performer (Natural Talent Setup) to have that "one more for you" skill that you can cast on the healer for extra BP and can still do almost 9999 damage by using qigong wave. Let me know if you're having troubles understanding the above strategy and I'll be glad to help out fellow JRPG gamers (i'm not good at explaining).

Anyway i've just finished the game and i Have some questions regarding the ending. I'll post on another day.

@Rapido Actually, I was able to beat them with zero damage. If you make your healer a ninja and assign spiritism as a secondary ability, every other character can spam dark nebula for an easy 9999 damage on all the bosses at once.

@maelstrom that's another way. :) . I just like stealing from bosses, and can't seem to kill them w/o their getting their stuff first. 4 Vampire's with MATK+20 and phantom weapon ability and hermes shoes/soul of thamasa and rune blade equipped can finish the team in one turn.

Btw, have you finish the 2nd round yet?

@RicoPenguin: haha, i had no idea you were around on the forums. i was seriously about to give the hell up on that fight until i stumbled across your strategy, and then it was all 'there's no way it can be that easy', and then i started thinking up ways to make it work even better. thanks for doing the ground work, and you're welcome to add my tweaks to your guide if you like. anything that helps other players get through that battle, y'know? lol~

anyway, my party just dinged level 99 tonight and i'm finishing up the last few jobs i wanted on them — maybe later I'll go back and grind up all the rest of their jobs, but i'm tired of running circles out in the Florem area and would like to get back to the story, lol. here's hoping i'll have done enough to get through these last couple chapters already :3

Yeah I ended up grinding the jobs while I was doing other stuff (like playing wow). If you noticed there are areas in the game where your character "jumps" when it walks into it. Basically you clip and bounce back a few pixels.

So what I did was used a penny to make my guy run into that spot repeatedly. Then I had an automated attack to finish each fight while also using Self-Heal and Self-Restore I think they are called (Full HP and No Status Ailments stay after combat).

After that while playing WoW or whatever I just press A every once in a while to end the end combat screen. :D

My derpy strategies have been fairly popular. So I'm glad folks are finding them helpful in some way or another. Even if its just the foundation for building something even better :).

Firaja/Blizzaja/Thundaja can be obtained all from Belphegor (Nemeses) . Aeroja from the Bird nemeses guy with sword. I wonder if you can get Flare from the FInal Boss' henchman. Haven't equipped Genome Drain when I fought him.

Doubt it. But I probably will have a vampire for that battle, so I'll let you know. Right now, I'm working through the sealed realm/dimensions hasp. I have all but 2 genome abilities, so I'm going to finish that up now.
EDIT: And the Bird nemesis guy is named Lucifer, in case you were wondering.

Mammon is the level 25 one. Not much challenge there.
I finally beat the true ending. The finale was great, but surprisingly easy. I beat it on the first try. Pumped for Bravely Second!
