Best Black Mage Abilities
When it comes to choosing the best abilities in Bravely Default 2, we recommend going with Poison and Lunar-Powered. As I mentioned above, abilities/spells often allow you to get the upper hand on bosses as many of them are vulnerable to them, especially Poison.
Meanwhile, Lunar-Powered is great while facing enemies during the night. When the sun goes down enemies are stronger so using Lunar-Powered to restore combat power at night is crucial to your character level progression.
Iceberg Blast: Extremely powerful water-imbued magical attack to all enemies.

Black Mage Best Sub-Jobs
Bard class is great for providing buffs to your party members. Casting offensive spells isn’t the best way to go every time so having a supportive Black Mage would benefit. Meanwhile, the Freelancer gives even more options for taking on enemies. The best part of the Freelancer is its ability to uncover your enemy’s weakness and target it via elemental spells.
And that’s all you need to know about the best Black Mage job class abilities and weapon proficiencies. For more, check out the Bravely Default 2 Wiki.
