Square Enix is finally bringing back the Bravely Default series with the release of Bravely Default 2 on the Nintendo Switch. This game features a totally new story and new cast of characters, but a few elements remain the same. You’re still in search of four magical crystals, and you’ll still be making use of the Brave and Default turn-based combat system. Here’s how to check enemy weaknesses in Bravely Default 2.
Just like any other good old-fashioned JRPG, enemies in Bravely Default 2 have their own weaknesses. Some are more susceptible to fire damage, while others are susceptible to physical attacks from weapons like daggers or axes. Figuring out an enemy’s weakness is the key to clearing your battles efficiently.
Checking Enemy Weaknesses in Bravely Default 2
To check an enemy’s weakness, you’ll need to either make use of the Magnifying Glass consumable item, which can be bought from merchants in town, or use the Examine skill with the Freelancer job.
Whichever you choose in combat, you can then select the enemy you want to examine, and you’ll be given detailed info like their total HP, as well as all of their vulnerabilities.
After that, simply hit them with the appropriate attacks to finish the battle quickly. Of course, trial and error works as well; you can simply hit enemies with a variety of attacks to figure out their weaknesses that way.
If you’re encountering an enemy you’ve already faced before but can’t remember its weaknesses, there’s an easy way to bring up that info as well.
While in combat, all you have to do is press the X button to bring up enemy details.
You will then be able to see all of the information you’ve uncovered on that enemy type so far, and react accordingly. This doesn’t take up any turns, so feel free to use it liberally.
