Yeah the lock is unnecessary stupid, even with most secondary jobs, sometimes it prevents you from making the combination of classes you want. Really don't see the point since the game is supposedly about completing the stories in any order you like.

@AlternateButtons It's not uncommon to have a couple of really strong characters in an RPG, it's just how they are...
I think the demo was released so people knew which character they liked but of course everyone won't have tried it :/

But secondary jobs help a lot in covering weaknesses in your team, if you bring lots of healing items and avoid battles you could probably unlock them early (during Chapter 1 )

I don't mind having one character stronger as they help level the weaker ones that much faster. I to like to level my characters evenly but all that really means is when I move to the next area I will take my 3 weakest no matter who they are. Even if I don't have a healer as the potions work surprisingly well.

Woo so 60 hours in, 4 stories completed and 7 characters collected. I must say this may end up being my GOTY. I do love that the stories are more connected than I was led to believe but in what I feel is a more organic way. Many of the stories are symptoms of things that happen in other ones (and the overarching big bad that at this point seems to be obvious even though I have 4 stories to go) and I think that is more organic than the entirety of evil being hyperfocused on a "special" group of people and they in turn are hyper focused on saving the world.

I think my only issues are that A) this isn't the storytelling norm for RPGs (meaning my next RPG is going to be a bit jarring), and B) the freedom of story choice means that the main character of each story is treated as if they are alone. I'm fine with that for a lot of the interactions as I treat it as if the others stay in the wagon or head to the tavern while the main character talks with friends or gathers clues...I know I wouldn't want 3 people crowing the room while I'm trying to ask about where a friend is or something. But sometimes you wonder how 4 people get ambushed or can't get out on their own. However old school JRPG parties were just as helpless and you were stuck shouting at the tv because you know there are four of them and they can't figure their way out of a paper bag because of plot.

@Ryu_Niiyama
You completed some sotries without getting all 8 characters? I figured everyone got all the characters before chapter 2...

What subclasses is everyone giving to who?

I'm probably playing this "the boring way", because I went around in a circle to recruit all characters and didn't start any of the third chapters until I finished the second ones. I think I just wanted to keep each character equal in terms of story.
I'm currently on my first Chapter 4 with Ophilia, the story is great but the dungeons don't change do they? It's either the suspicious building, a forest or a cave with the same sad song. There are a couple that change the theme but not many...


@Trajan I know there are some other secondary jobs so this will change soon, but as for right now-
Tressa - Thief
Cyrus - Dancer
Ophilia - Apothecary
Primrose - Hunter
H'aanit - Warrior
Alfyn - Merchant
Therion - Cleric
Olberic - Currently nothing because he's my least favourite

I think I'm officially 100% completed the game. Went back around and collected all the chests I missed in the dungeons mainly because I don't normally have Therion in my team. Scrutinized everyone, purchased/stolen all items, completed all side quests. I don't think there's anything left I can do. Took me a little over 90 hours to do all that. A decent amount of time was spent at the end getting some of the characters I never used leveled up for the final boss. In the end I had 3 characters at level 80 and the rest were around level 60.

@Trajan My final setup ended up like this

My main 4

Cyrus - Sorcerer
Ophilia - Dancer
Tressa - Runelord
Olberic - Warmaster

Others

Primrose - Cleric
Alfyn - Starseer
Therion - Merchant
H'aanit - Apothecary

My teams for the final boss were
Team 1: Cyrus, Ophelia, Therion, H'aanit
Team 2: Olberic, Alfyn, Primrose, Tressa

@meleebrawler Well too bad that's not a part of the Chapter 1 areas. And still doesn't excuse this dumb design choice.

@Kimyonaakuma Except that's not true at all. Good RPGs allow you to balance levels and keep everyone up to speed. Xenoblade 2 for instance has the inns. There's no reason why this game should lock a character to me. It's not like anything changes. It's the same story, just with an arbitrary lock.

@Trajan Yep I wanted to roll 4 characters at a time... the only reason why I started on the others is as I finish my original 4 I swap in a new person (I swap in one/two at a time so I can level quickly). Since I have all the jobs I just made used the four unused characters for sub-clases. Worked out well since I by happenstance pulled for characters that allowed me all the path actions. So I never needed to get the others until I was ready for their stories. Right now though since I'm 58-61 my current group all have the advanced classes.

@Cynas where do you grind when you are in your 60s?

@Ryu_Niiyama I went to the Forest of Purgation, the level 58 dungeon in the Flatlands. I made sure to equip the passive skills that increase experience and JP gained, as well as the accessory that increases experience gained by 50% and the one that increases JP by 50%. A lot of the battles gave around 2000 XP and 330 JP. I also put on the accessory that increases random encounters.

I finally beat the game 100%. Took about 110 hours and all characters was between lvl 75 to 80.

Best game on Switch so far in my opinion.

About the true finale

Tried the final boss for the second time, now with a level 60-70 team and defeated it. It took quite a long time, the first half of the second stage was nearly killing me, it nullified my status enhancements like all the time. Seriously the reward was so disappointing!

@Navitroid
I really liked the reward. At that point in the game there's really not much left to do especially if you're already done the other sidequests, so it's nice to have something to make it easier to go back to previous dungeons and pick up chests you may have missed or scrutinize/inquire people outside of towns. I can't think of anything else they could have given me I would have liked. An overpowered weapon would be pretty pointless since you just beat the most powerful thing in the game.

@Cynas
I guess the final boss was the real reward then. Defeating it wasn't easy and I did like the challenge. I think I didn't have a real challenge since the first two chapter 1 bosses simply because I forgot mechanics. I just wish there was more interesting content after Galdera. The Ribbon feels like it does the opposite of giving content by disabling the biggest part of the game, fights! On the other hand it is useful for completing the game if you're up to it

Was really wanting to get this but one of, if not the main reason, I play jrpgs is for the story and interparty dialogue. I've heard plenty of complaints about these in Octopath Traveller. Do you guys think these complaints would be serious enough to ruin the experience for me??

@bluemage1989 It really depends for you- for me, the interparty dialogue that happens in every chapter after chapter 1 are enough (even if it's 1-on-1 talk), and that I love each person's story (Of course, some I love more than the others).

It really depends on yourself in the end o.o)

Sadly, I only found out about the second jobs when I made it to everyone's last chapter. I just completed each of them too.

I had the luckiest moment today! I used Bewildering Grace (Fully Boosted) and summoned a Cait, and then got EXP and JP x2!

...I was suprised that all of that could happen in one turn, but I'm not complaining
