Bravely Default 2 Red Mage Job

Red Mage shines when it comes to taking advantage of weaknesses of an enemy and inflicting different status ailments. To use it to its maximum potential, players should consider pairing it up with something like a Black Mage. First of all, let’s take a look at its abilities:

Stone 15 MP Unleash an earth magic attack on one or more targets.
Aero 15 MP Unleash a wind magic attack on one or more targets.
Heal 14 MP Replenish 1,000 HP.
Stonera 38 MP Land a strong earth magic attack on one or more enemies.
Aerora 38 MP Land a strong wind magic attack on one or more enemies.
Healara 36 MP Restore 2,000 HP.
Magic Critical 1 slot It allows all the magic attacks to critically strike.
Revenge 1 slot It provides +25% chance of increasing BP by +1 when hit.
Healaga 49 MP Restore 3,000 HP.
Stonega 66 MP Perform a devastating earth magic attack on one or more enemies.
Aeroga 66 MP Perform a devastating wind magic attack on one or more enemies.
Disaster 100 MP Land a powerful earth/wind attack on one or more enemies.
Quack 80 MP Perform the strongest earth magic attack on one or more enemies.
Tornado 80 MP Perform the strongest wind magic attack on one or more enemies.
MP to HP 1 slot All the MP abilities cost HP at 10x the cost.

While almost all the abilities of Red Mage are strong in their own way, there are a couple of them that clearly stand out. One such ability is ‘Revenge’ that gives players a +25% chance to gain +1 BP whenever they’re attacked. Another ability that players should consider investing in is called ‘Magic Critical’. This ability lets the magic attack become critical and therefore improving their overall damage output.

Special Ability and Specialities

Gale Force Flurry is the Special Ability of the Red Mage. When used, it attacks all the nearby enemies with a powerful wind magic attack and provides +15% Magic Attack as well as +15% Movement Speed. As for its Specialities, there are 2:

  • Nuisance – All the attack spells inflict status ailments.
  • Double Cast – It allows the Red Mage to cast the same magic a second time without any cost.

When it comes to the Sub-Job, there isn’t anything more appropriate than the Black Mage. Thanks to Nuisance, the Red Mage can boost the status ailments from the Black Mage. The extra damage can come in handy when it comes to bosses.
