D's Journal job description.

Leap into battles as a Valkyrie with acrobatic spear attacks.

Online site's description.

Valkyrie job icon.

The Valkyrie is a job in Bravely Default. It is obtained after defeating Einheria Venus in the Witherwood.

Primarily a combat-focused Job, the Valkyrie is a mirror to the traditional Dragoon job in Final Fantasy history. As tradition dictates, the Valkyrie is a spear-proficient class that holds the famous Jump command. Their defensive capabilities are also impressive, considering how all of their Armor Aptitudes are at Level A. The Valkyrie uses little to no magic primarily, thus their magic affinities are left in the wake of their physical ones.

The Valkyrie is optimized for attacking multiple enemies at once, thanks to its Crescent Moon ability and reliance on Spears which gain a damage bonus in multi-target attacks.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

For this job, every character wears a set of light-colored heavy armor that features prominent points and decorations. Noticeably, the men wear large helmets that feature light blue accents and cover their faces (in a manner reminiscent of the "traditional" Dragoon helmet), while the women wear a modified suit of armor and lack a helmet, instead wearing a hairband with wing decorations.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Valkyries are the goddesses from Norse mythology that collect the souls of dead warriors to take them to Valhalla, the hall of the slain. Valkyries are often depicted as beautiful women wielding shining spears and riding flying horses. The word "valkyrie" comes from Old Norse valkyrja, which means "chooser of the slain".
