Bravely Second: End Layer

Trouble Brewing

Vincent Lau

Crystalguard Campsite

With a long road still ahead of them, Yew and Janne set up camp along with the Crystalguard remnants, while Nikolai returns to Gathelatio to treat the wounded. In the middle of the night, Yew arises from slumber after hearing a harrowing scream.

When you regain control, you’ll be in the Southeast part of Pilgrim’s Grove, near where you left off. However, it’s the dead of night and Yew is all alone. Fortunately, no monsters are around, so patiently head west back to the Southwest part of the grove.

On the other side, you’ll find Janne and a Crystalguard member lying down on the floor. Speak to Janne to discover what’s happened… Eventually, a prompt will appear on the bottom screen; press the X button to speak into the pendant and listen to Agnes’s sage advice.

Afterwards, Yew somehow manages to escape from danger, ending up near the entrance of Pilgrim’s Grove. Right now, there’s little you can do, so exit the grove to the west.

Looking for Nikolai

Think you’ve got an amazimg killer move? Why not send it for others to enjoy?

Back outside on the world map, now that Yew has Agnes’s pendant, the game will teach you about the Summon Friend mechanic.

Like in Bravely Default, you can summon characters belonging to friends or guests to unleash a powerful ability during battle. But first, you can’t summon friends without sending something yourself…

From that point onwards, any Bravely Second players you swap profiles with via StreetPass or the Internet will receive your Friend Summon. In exchange, you will receive Friend Summons from anybody who swaps profiles with you.

Additionally, to allow you to use Friend Summons, the Update Data, Update StreetPass and Add Friends functions will be unlocked. All can be accessed from the Save menu, either by speaking to the Adventurer or by pressing the quill pen icon on the world map.

Anyway, back to the mission on hand. With the way things have turned out, Yew is desperate to find out how Nikolai is doing. Hurry back to Gathelatio to the west and, once there, head up the nearby staircase and run all the way to the Sanctum. At the far end is Nikolai…

One Cavalier

Here’s a Command Set we made earlier…

Poor Yew’s day couldn’t get any worse, but even though he’s alone, he’s not giving up on rescuing Pope Agnes. As soon as you’re ready to set out again, leave the manor and exit Gathelatio. Before you do so, consider stocking up on Potions from the Trader by the exit.

When you return to the world map, the Auto-Battle feature will be unlocked.

With only Yew under your command, Auto-Battle isn’t really recommended at this stage, except for single weak enemies that you can Brave three times to kill. In this case, you may want to save a Command Set where Yew Braves three times for four attacks.

With the lesson over, it’s time to move on. Head due east like before and re-enter the fateful Pilgrim’s Grove.
