Best characters for the Dancer job in Octopath 2

The best character for the Dancer job is Partitio as this secret job will enhance her Merchant abilities. By doing so, she will not only be able to buff the enemies but also heal party members.

The best part is that all the supporting skills of Agnea will work side by side with Partitio skills. Meanwhile, the Hoot and Holler will replenish all your party BP to full.

Another best character choice for Dancer is Hikari as he can deliver various elemental attacks using Armsmaster’s secondary job. Best of all, he can attack using all six of the weapons using the Sixfold Strike skill.

As Hikari is a physical attacker, therefore, he can get the best out of the party from his offensive skill. Meanwhile, Agnea can act as support and buffer to maximize the damage on all his attacks.
