Passive abilities are really the bread and butter of Bravely Default 2 and will help you carve a path to victory. The nice thing about these passive abilities is that they can be mixed and matched with each other and with any job. Sometimes you will get a passive ability for one job that is better suited for another job instead. Here are some of the best passive ability combinations in Bravely Default 2.
Fast Hands – Shieldmaster
Best Bravely Default 2 Passive Ability Combinations
Speed is one of the essential stats in Bravely Default 2, as the slower you are, the longer it will take for your turn to come around. Since weapons and armor make you heavier and thus slower, Fast Hands is an absolute life-saver.
Fast Hands is any speed reductions caused by equipment in both hands to become speed bonuses instead. So if you are using characters that are a bit slower, like Vanguard, Dragoon, Swordmaster, or Shieldmaster, this completely negates their sluggish nature.
This passive ability is excellent for any job (except Monk, who does not hold anything in their hands). I recommend getting it on all of your characters as soon as you can.
Pair this skill with Defensive Offence, which makes you take 70% less damage on your next hit every time you attack, to make full use of both abilities.
