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.

                                                  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.

                                                  I see a lot of the genomes are from chapter 4. I am in chapter 5, did I miss out on those abilities?

                                                  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.

                                                  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.

                                                  They're not listed in D's Journal, but you can get Firaja from Belphegor, Thundaja from Asmodeus, and Blizzaja from Mammon.
