In Octopath Traveler 2, there are various secondary jobs that you can unlock by visiting the locations of the Jobs Guild. These Octopath Traveler 2 Job Guilds are scattered all over the game world. Some players confuse them with Altars. Altars help you unlock the EX skills for the Primary Job of your eight characters while job guilds help you unlock jobs as secondary jobs for other characters.
Each Altar has its associated EX skill, and each of these skills is unique to each character. Follow our guide to locate the position of every Job Guild in Octopath Traveler 2.
How to unlock a new job at Octopath Traveler 2 guild locations
You cannot simply go on unlocking the secondary jobs. For that, you need to progress through the game and transcend your character through a danger level of 30: as each Guild is scattered in areas crowded with enemies.
To get to the locations of each Guild in Octopath Traveler 2, look for a shield-like logo on your map. This logo represents the Job Guilds. Once you get there, you must communicate with the Guild Leaders; they’ll grant you a single job license.
However, you’ll be assigned some tasks by the Guild Leader, and once you complete these tasks, they’ll offer you two more job licenses which can be given to the two other characters. Therefore, three of your characters can unlock the same secondary Job.
To be more specific, here’s a list of all the Job Guilds and their locations in Octopath Traveler 2 mentioned below:
