The Bravely Default 2 Salve-Maker Job weapon – the Foraging Shovel – will allow you to use all the Salve-Maker’s passive abilities without manually equipping them, providing you new and exciting ways to break the game. It’ll take some work and a whole lot of grinding to grab it, however, and you’ll need to reach Chapter 6 before you can even consider laying your hands on this handy tool.
How to earn the Bravely Default 2 Salve-Maker Job weapon – The Foraging Shovel
The Salve-Maker Job weapon in Bravely Default 2 – the Foraging Shovel – is a drop within the Halls of Tribulation III trial, which you can locate alongside the other trial gates in our guide here. You have to beat Glenn (Salve-Maker), Galahad (Shieldmaster), and Gladys (Swordmaster) in a tense battle for a chance to grab the Foraging Shovel.
This is a tricky battle. Each boss will have access to their full compliment of abilities, and they will actively assist one another, making the fight a genuine challenge no matter the difficulty. Realistically, you’ll want to be level 70 or higher with most Jobs leveled to 8 or more to stand a chance. The Hall of Tribulation III trial is accessible immediately after entering Chapter 6, but you may have to grind for a few hours to reach those plateaus.
The Foraging Shovel has a chance to drop at the end of the fight, and is considered a normal drop. The Giant JP Orbs are rare drops in this battle, so if you have the Gambler passive ability Rare Talent equipped you may want to disable it better your odds for the Salve-Maker Job weapon.
The Foraging Shovel may be the Salve-Maker Job weapon in Bravely Default 2, but you don’t have to be a Salve-Maker to use it. No matter what Jobs you are currently running, any character that has this Job weapons equipped will automatically equip all of the Salve-Maker’s passive abilities. Like other Job weapons, the Foraging Shovel allows you to truly break Bravely Default 2 in creative new ways.
