Operation: Rescue Tiz

Tiz, the hero of Bravely Default, is sleeping somewhere inside here.

We're finally here! Proceed along the foreboding staircase leading up to the actual Central Command. Inside, you'll be on floor 1F , naturally. If you need to save, buy items or rest, the Adventurer is standing just left of the entrance.

Anyway, all of the doors on this floor are conveniently locked except the one to the east, where Tiz is. So without further ado, make your way to the orange exclamation mark, by following the corridor east from the Adventurer.

Enemy Tips : Imperial soldiers await in every corner. The Imperial Axe uses Defang to drop your physical attack, while the Imperial Spear uses Mow Down to hit your party and the Imperial Shield relies on Shield Strike to damage one and boost its defence.

Finally, the Imperial Stave casts Fire magic to strike one. The first three are susceptible to lightning magic; in particular, you should avoid attacking the Shield physically. Whereas the Stave is squishy and easily taken out of commission with a couple of physical blows.

At the White Magic Circulation Hub, head right and inspect the console in front of the life-support system. Yew will do his thing and then it's just a matter of waiting... Or it would be, if it weren't for the imperial soldiers coming to check the area.

Before there's trouble, exit the hub, then make your way back to the chamber where the Adventurer can be found. Just as you pass under the gate, stop and turn towards the bottom-right corner. In the very corner, there's a vent, which you can inspect.

You'll emerge in Edea's fancy room, which hasn't changed much from the first game. After some chit-chat, the gang hear of an oddity at the White Magic Circulation Hub. Before anyone else even has time to think, Magnolia shoots off back into the vent.

AR Movie : It's time for a piece of technological fun! When prompted by the game, place your 3DS on a flat surface, like a table and then press the A button to continue.

In this AR (Augmented Reality) movie, you can physically move your 3DS to move the camera. Be sure to hold your 3DS firmly and avoid rapid movements so you don't drop your 3DS or hit something (or someone).

Note : Tiz will permanently join your party.

Four Heroes

After much struggle, our four heroes have finally united; the kaiser had better watch out! Oh, but Tiz is mostly naked, so remember to give him some equipment before you set off again. Once you've outfitted the former hero of Luxendarc, return to the vent in the bottom-right corner.

After Abilinking, increased job levels will appear as red numbers.

Abilink : One can never have too many tricks at their disposal. If you have any friends registered on Bravely Second (by registering 3DS Friend Codes and using the "Add Friends" option in the save menu), you can borrow abilities that your friends have learned.

To do so, open the menu by pressing the X button while on the map and select "Tactics - Abilink". For each character, you can assign one friend to Abilink. After Abilinking, that character will share the job levels of your friend. For best results, you'll want friends further ahead or with different jobs.

Back in Edea's room, head for the exit in the south-west corner. If you need to rest now or later, you can inspect Edea's luxurious bed just above to take a nap , restoring all HP and MP.

Outside, you'll be back in Central Command, but much further up.

Encounter Rate : Tired of running into enemies or can't get enough of them? When on the map, press the R button or tap the right-most icon on the bottom screen and you'll be able to set the Encounter Rate.

Normally, the rate is +/- 0%, but you can increase it or decrease it by 50% intervals. At 100% you'll encounter enemies with virtually step you take, great for gaining levels fast. At -100% you'll stop encountering enemies altogether, useful for making quick progress.

Chaining Battles : Succeed in defeating an enemy mob in one turn and you'll be prompted to take on another mob with an increased pg, experience point and job point multiplier. Press the L button if you're feeling confident or the B button to call it a day.

During chained battles, BP from the previous battle is carried over, so only carry on if at least one character has 0 or more BP. The trick to chaining battles is to find mobs that you can consistently defeat with one character Braving three times.
