Bravely Default: Vampire Genome Ability Locations Guide

Need help finding the Vampire Genome abilities for Bravely Default? Look no further than this guide.

Vampires in Bravely Default have the Genome Drain ability. This allows them to absorb abilities from enemies, like Blue Mages in the Final Fantasy series. You can learn 25 Genome abilities.

You need to either be a Vampire or have the Vampire support ability, Genome Drain equipped to learn Genome abilities. The enemy must hit the person with Genome Drain for you to learn it. Once learned, everyone who picks Vampire can use the ability.

I will explain all that I have found and where to find them.

This guide will cover everything about Genome abilities including:

  • Genome Ability Descriptions - Detailed info on what they do.
  • Genome Ability Locations - Where they are, and who gives them.
