Bravely Default: Conjurer Job Guide

Need to beef up your Summoner? Learn how with this Conjurer Job guide!

by

The Conjurer is an interesting Job. I can say that I was a little confused about the name, thanks to playing Final Fantasy XIV, but I quickly got over it. This class makes use of summons, just like the summoner Job. Unlike the summoner, Conjurers use these summons in as support.

They also have some nice support skills to increase and save MP, which is great as a summoner. They even have some ability to give more experience in battle. Overall, Conjurer can't do a lot by itself, but coupled with Summoner, it is deadly.

  • Go back to the 48th floor, then to the room in the northeast. You fight Alternis.
  • After the fight, go to Eternia City. Head north in town to the central healing tower, where you will fight Braev.
  • Leave town afterwards, then go to Twilight Ruins. You fight the three sisters at the end.
  • Go to Norende Ravine after the fight. You fight a group of enemies at the end.
  • Finally, go back to Yulyana to fight him.

Equipment Guide - The best gear for Conjurer

Conjurers are unique because they have an A aptitude for all weapons..

Armor
  • Magic Attack and INT is key here. Pick armor and accessories that raise this.
  • Nullify elemental damage accessories also work well.
  • You can use a shield in one hand if you need extra defense.
Weapons
  • Rods are great if you are using this with Summoner, which you should.

Cross Job Tips - Jobs that make the Conjurer shine

  • Summoner is what you need as your sub job. The Conjurer only has support abilities and most of them buff the Summoner very well.
  • Templar is very valuable because of their Magic Critical ability at level 5. Use that, mixed with the Summoner Job, and you will hit very hard with your summons.

Special Moves - The best moves for the Conjurer

Rod
  • Level 1 - Use magic 10 times to use.
    • Piercing Bolt: Attack one. Raises Magic Attack for all allies.
  • Level 2 - Use magic 20 times to use.
    • Withering Ripple: Weaken enemy. Raises Magic Attack for all allies.
  • Level 3 - Use magic 30 times to use.
    • Holy Weapon: Attack all, slaying Demon. Raises Magic Attack for all allies.

Combat Tips - Using Conjurer the most effectively in battle

As stated before, Conjurer is a buff class, best used for Summoner. If you other Jobs that don't need a sub job, Conjurer is useful for them as well because they can max any attack and defense.

  • With Summoner, use Deus Ex before attacking to max out your Magic Attack.
  • If you have the Magic Critical ability, use Susano-o as well, to give you a high chance to crit.
  • Take advantage of an enemies elemental weakness with the appropriate summon. If they have no weakness, use Susano-o.

That's it for Conjurer. If you have any questions or suggestions, let me know in the comments below!
