Defend your allies and possess your enemies with this Guardian guide for Bravely Second!
The Guardian Job in Bravely Second is a unique job that uses Soul Power to possess others. They can also completely deflect physical attack with their Soul Mirror, making it a great Job to pick for Physical Defense.
If you want something different, a tank, and someone that just looks cool, Guardian is the Job for you!
Guardian has S rank in Spears, and S rank in all armor.
Heavy armor is the way to go, since this class is best suited for tanking and you get the full benefits for wearing heavy armor.
Definitely put a shield in your off hand, unless you are trying a damage dealing Guardian.
Accessories that increase HP or Defense, are useful.
Exorcist is great for a side Job because you can just Undo HP when you aren't using a soul ability to keep teammates at full health.
Templar is probably the best to have just for the support abilities.
Fortitude is great since you gain an extra BP while Defaulting. BP Limit Up is great so you can reach a max of 4 BP.
Kaiser is nice if you want an extra BP for everyone every 4 turns, but it also applies to enemies.
is good if you want to
shields for extra defense.
Valkyrie is good if you want to deal damage and since both use spears, they work well with each other.
Guardian is best used as a Tank, to take all the damage from enemies. It is helpful to have another character, or an ability of your own, that can raise the chance that enemies will target you.
Soul Mirror is great for stopping physical attacks, even though it can only be used on 1 person. This is useful for yourself or others. If people are more likely to target you, putting it on yourself has a higher chance of activating.
It can also help to put it on another member who has low defense to help them in case they do get targeted, or from multi-target attacks.
Possession or Possessed is great for offense and defense. You can take out enemies, or increase your own power by using it on them. You can also save a teammate from dying by possessing them.
