How to Unlock Secret Jobs in Octopath Traveler 2

Octopath Traveler 2 is a newly released video game sequel to the original Octopath Traveler, which was released in 2018. The game is a unique take on the Japanese role-playing game genre, blending traditional turn-based combat with modern HD graphics and an epic soundtrack. One of the most appealing aspects of the game is its Job system, which allows players to choose from an array of unique classes, each with its own skills and abilities. In this article, we’ll share details on how to unlock all secret jobs in Octopath Traveler 2

Octopath Traveler 2 Primary Jobs

Octopath Traveler 2


There are eight protagonists in Octopath Traveler 2, and each has their own job. They start in this job as soon as they join your party. Here are all the primary jobs of every Octopath Traveler 2 character:

  • Hikari: Warrior
  • Ochette: Hunter
  • Temenos: Cleric
  • Osvald: Scholar
  • Partitio: Merchant
  • Agnea: Dancer
  • Throné: Thief
  • Castti: Apothecary

What are the Secret Jobs in Octopath Traveler 2?


Apart from  the eight primary jobs, there are four secret jobs in Octopath Traveler 2, which you can unlock. Unlike Octopath Traveler, where you needed to battle enemies and reach a certain level to unlock the secret jobs, in Octopath Traveler 2, you can get them by interacting with regular NPCs. 

These are the secret jobs you can find and unlock in Octopath Traveler 2:

  • Inventor
  • Armsmaster
  • Conjurer
  • Arcanist

How to Unlock Secret Jobs in Octopath Traveler 2

As mentioned, apart from eight primary jobs, there are four secret jobs in Octopath Traveler 2. Here is how you can unlock all four secret jobs in Octopath Traveler 2:


Inventor Job

This secret job allows you to invent new items such as catapults and springy boots. that you can use during battles. Each item has different effects. It is a unique job that is unlike anything seen in Octopath Traveler before.

To unlock this job, you must visit the Inventor Guild, located in the northeast part of East New Delsta Highroad. As soon as you reach the Inventor Guild, this secret job will be unlocked, but you will need to deliver certain items to the Guild to unlock its skills.


Armsmaster job

This job is ideal for characters who specialize in physical damage. It has a unique ability called “Sixfold Strike” that allows you to hit your opponents up to six times with various weapons, making it highly effective in dealing large amounts of damage. In addition, this ability also helps to expose your enemies’ weaknesses, making it an ideal option for physical damage.

To unlock this job, you must visit the Blacksmith’s Home in Gravell and Challenge or Ambush, the man blocking the front door. (Challenge is a path action for Hikari and Ambush is a path action for Throné.) After defeating the door guard, interact with the Blacksmith to get the Armsmaster License. Now, in order to unlock the Armsmaster skills, you will need to collect Rusty Weapons from around the world and provide them to the Blacksmith. With these weapons, he will forge a unique weapon that can be equipped by the Armsmaster. Doing so will enable you to access this powerful new skill.


Conjurer JOb


The Conjurer job has a buffing skill that enables you to infuse physical attacks with different elements. It is an extremely effective strategy to take advantage of enemy elemental weaknesses. This skill also allows you to revive all party members, though you will lose the opportunity to execute attacks for the next six turns.

To unlock the Conjurer job, you must climb the Five-Tiered Tower located in Ku — the hometown of Hikari. Each floor consists of one boss that must be defeated in order to move up. Upon successfully navigating through all five tiers and defeating their respective bosses, you will fight with the Conjurer boss on the top floor. Once victorious, you will receive your license for the Conjurer job.

A secret job usually unlocks with the acquisition of special items. However, in this case, you can unlock skills for 2000 JP each.

Note: To gain entry to the Five-Tiered Tower in Ku, you must first complete Hikari’s story. Additionally, conquering each level does not have to be done consecutively – after besting a boss, you can leave the tower and return later when you are better prepared. No need to restart from the beginning or push through it all at once!


Arcanist job

This job provides a unique opportunity to use both healing and damaging abilities. You can heal your party members as well as deal damage to opponents. Furthermore, the Arcanist will enable you to extend specific buffs indefinitely at the cost of 50 SP.

To unlock this job, you must fulfill these conditions:

  • Partitio should be in your party.
  • Go to the far eastern dock in Tropu’hopu and interact with an NPC to purchase a boat for $100,000.
  • After purchasing the boat, head northeast to the Lost Isle.
  • In the middle of the way, you will encounter a sea monster. Defeat this boss to reach the island. A party of at least Level 45 is recommended.
  • After you get to the Lost Isle, climb the ladder and switch to nighttime.
  • Now follow the blue light path, and you will encounter an Arcanist who will award you with your license.

Like Conjurer, you can unlock Arcanist skills for 2000 JP per skill.
