Bravely Default: Vampire Genome Ability Locations Guide

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

by   

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.

    I believe that the Remora can also use Spray. You might like to add that to your list~
  • sara_2653
    can you get these in chapter 6 too?
  • morfowt
    Just to point out:
    There's an ice golem blocking the way to eternia in chapter 4 that you can get blizzard blast from. However, the only way you would have the vampire job at that point is with new game+ so not sure if worth mentioning in the guide
  • Bile_2404
    Ability #1 - Curse ... it can also be obtained in the Eisenberg region at night from Ghosts (in Ch. 4) ... Stumbled upon it as I was looking for Ability #9 - Chomp. Spectacular guide, by the way. =]
  • Ryan_3540
    Just reporting a misspelling (Streetoass): "You can get these from Nemeses through Streetoass or net invites."

    Great guides! Thank you.

    nvm
  • KawaiianPunch
    So, a bit late to the party here - but you can learn Chomp in Chapter 5+ from Valtoras on Crescent Island. They usually spawn with a Daedelus giant/gigas.
  • kaed0x
    The deathfish in chapter 4 can give spray. I found it in the sea between florem and ancheim.
  • Chefjae
    I see a lot of the genomes are from chapter 4. I am in chapter 5, did I miss out on those abilities?
  • Anon_3092
    Is it possible to get the chapter 4 abilities later in the game? i waited until chapter 5 to get the vampire job because I didn't want to be under-leveled when fighting Lester.
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    Yes, you can get them in Chapter 8 by going to the bonus dungeon on Crescent Island to the north.

  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    I didn't know that, thanks.
  • Vee_7430
    You can get Curse from the owl guys/ Magician in Chapter 5 by going to the Crescent Moon island.
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    I have the Magicians listed already, but I'll add that extra location. Thanks.
  • Tiz A.
    Not sure if this is still relevant, but you can get curse in ch. 5 from specter in the open sea at night.
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    It's already listed on there.
  • Rob_5813
    Yeah just a HUGE FYI to anyone reading this guide, i missed fireball from D'Gon because i waited to chapter 5 thinking this was an accurate guide.
  • Synzer
    Guide Editor
    It is an accurate guide. That was just a typo and the only one in there. Plus, you can get it again in the Chapter 8 bonus dungeon.
  • Kalasbkeo
    For the fireball ability, the D'gons do not appear anymore in chapter 5 so it can be obtained in chapter 4 or in the end game dungeon.
  • Navi_8277
    You can also get Aeroja from Lucifer
  • JaMagicIsBest
    i just got all 3 ja magic (fireja, thundaja, and blizzaja) from a level 80 Belphegor
    his random ball things used them also
  • Brendan_8880
    They're not listed in D's Journal, but you can get Firaja from Belphegor, Thundaja from Asmodeus, and Blizzaja from Mammon.
