Octopath Traveler Advanced Jobs Guide

Octopath traveler has 4 Advanced Jobs, other than the 8 secondary jobs you can get for your characters to increase their abilities. You need to find the respective shrines to unlock advanced jobs in Octopath Traveler. Here, we will look at all the Advanced Jobs Octopath Traveler offers and how to get them.

How to unlock advanced jobs in Octopath Traveler

Advanced Jobs are not available by default to the players. These jobs must be unlocked in the game through their respective secret shrines. All of the advanced job shrines act as dungeons as well, and to get to the shrine, you need to make your way through the entire dungeon first.

As soon as you interact with the shrines, you come face-to-face with the dungeon boss. You unlock the job after you defeat the boss of the shrine.

Octopath Traveler advanced jobs

Advanced Jobs are different from secondary/sub-jobs in Octopath Traveler. While there are 8 sub-jobs in the game so you can give one to each character, there are only 4 advanced jobs which means you need to decide carefully which job would be ideal for which character.


Starseer’s job specializes in buffing you and your teammates. The job works similarly to Dancer, but where the dancer’s ability provides a single buff to a single ability, Starseer’s ability allows you to buff physical defense, elemental defense, speed, evasion, and attack simultaneously.

With this, you can use your remaining SP to buff your teammates’ remaining skills and abilities, providing the ultimate support.

Runelords buff your attacks by using Runes. These runes add a follow-up attack to all your attacks, and the follow-up attack has the element of the rune. The damage of this follow-up attack is determined by the character’s elemental attack stat and the damage of the weapon used.
