Octopath Traveller Secret Jobs: What Do Advanced Jobs Do?

The four secret jobs in Octopath Traveler are Runelord, Starseer, Warmaster and Sorcerer. Each of these classes is very powerful and offers various ways to play.

  • Starseers focus more on buffing and supporting the party by healing HP and increasing BP skills' damage output.
  • Sorcerers are an essentially stronger version of Scholars and have access to every single element, including wind, light and dark magic. Every spell hits every enemy on the field and strikes three times. Their attacks do cost a lot of SP, so keep that in mind.
  • Runelords focus on physical sword attack but can enhance their attacks with elemental magic.
  • Warmasters focus on physical attacks and can use every weapon type in the game, including staves.

How To Unlock Secret Jobs

To acquire these secret jobs in Octopath Traveler, players must traverse through a dungeon and battle a boss. The game recommends that a character is at Level 50 before attempting; you may want to attempt it at a slightly higher or lower level, depending on your playstyle and comfort with the combat system. Once you find the dungeon where the shrine is located, make your way through it until the artifact is found. Examine it, and a message from the corresponding God or Goddess will appear on the screen before you enter a battle with it.

Here are the locations of all the Advanced Job Shrines in Octopath Traveler.

  • Shrine of the Starseer (Starseer) – Western Wispermill Flats
  • Shrine of the Runeblade (Runelord) – West Everhold Pass
  • Shrine of the Archmagus (Sorcerer) – East Duskbarrow Trail
  • Shrine of the Warbringer (Warmaster) – North Riverford Traverse
