Summoner job icon.

The Summoner is a job in Bravely Default. It is obtained by defeating Mephilia Venus in the Florem Gardens.

Summoners rely on summoning magic to attack enemies. In addition, they have passive abilities which enhance both normal summons and Friend Summons, obtainable after linking with other players. They have high magical skill but lack in physical ability. They are most proficient with Rods but can use Staves and Daggers to lesser degrees.

When the Summoner is first obtained, it will only have access to the Girtablulu summon. To gain access to the others, Summoners must meet two requirements. First, they must have be at or above the necessary job level. Next, they must be awarded the summon by facing an Anchorite in a battle. The Anchorite will use the summon as an automatic first turn. At least one member of the party must survive the summon's attack. If this occurs, the Anchorite will grant the summon to the player.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Summoners wear elaborate clothing in various shades of black and purple decorated with gemstones, feathers, and fairy wings, as well as silver jewelry with green gems. Much like Mephilia, the female variant consists of a short, backless dress cut low in the front with the ends cut into diamond shapes and embellished with alternating fairy wings colored green, blue, and pink. The front of the dress has purple and green gems. Agnès wears grey tights with low black boots, while Edea wears tan tights and thigh-high boots. Both girls wear their hair in elaborate updos with a high bun and a colorful hair ornament that is green and gold with pink, yellow, and blue "feathers". Their shoulder pads are also decorated with the same feathers.

The boys wear dark purple robes with alternating green and purple gems down the front, lavender capes with the ends cut into diamond shapes, leather gloves, silver tassets on their hips with green gems, as well as silver armlets and shoulder pads. Tiz wears low boots, while Ringabel has knee-high boots lined with silver, feathers attached to his shoulder pads, and lavender wristbands worn over his armlets.
