Octopath Traveler 2 secondary job locations: how to unlock job licenses

Octopath Traveler 2 secondary jobs are crucial to becoming powerful in battle, so here's where you can find them all

Secondary jobs are the key to unlocking the deep strategy that Octopath Traveler 2’s system can bring, but you’ll need to track them down. All eight of the base jobs can be unlocked and assigned to any character as a secondary job, giving them access to all of the regular skills and support skills it offers, letting you craft a varied and useful team.

Things are a little different in this sequel though, as you can unlock multiple licenses, allowing more than one character to have each job. We’ll explain where to find each job and how to get their additional licenses.

Octopath Traveler 2: secondary job guild locations

In the last game, you’d find these jobs in shrines, but this time you need to look for guilds instead. If you’re in an area containing a guild, you’ll be able to see a shield icon on your minimap, so make sure you always check.

Simply talking to the guild master will earn you the first license, unlocking the corresponding secondary job, but you’ll need to complete tasks to get more.

Octopath Traveler 2 Hunter's Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Thieves Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Scholar's Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Apothecary's Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Merchant's Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Warrior's Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Dancer's Guild
Octopath Traveler 2 Cleric's Guild

Octopath Traveler 2: extra job license requirements

If you want more than one party member to be able to use a secondary job, then you’ll need to unlock more licenses. Each guild can give you up to two extra licenses, for a total of three, and they’ll involve various tasks. Here’s what each one requires.
