The Bravely Default 2 Vanguard Job weapons – The Bullhead Blade and Shield – will allow you to use all the Vanguard’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, however, and you’ll need to reach Chapter 6 before you can even consider laying your hand on this crazy sword and board combo.
How to earn the Bravely Default 2 Vanguard Job weapons – The Bullhead Sword and Shield.
The Vanguard Job weapons in Bravely Default 2 – The Bullhead Sword and Shield – are drops within the Halls of Tribulation VII trial, which you can locate alongside the other trial gates in our guide here. You have to beat Selene (White Mage), Dag (Vanguard), Lily (Ranger), and Roddy (Red Mage) in a tense battle for a chance to grab the Bullhead Sword and Shield.
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 VII trial is accessible immediately after entering Chapter 6, but you may have to grind for a few hours to reach those plateaus.
The Bullhead Sword and Shield each have a chance to drop at the end of the fight, and are 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 Vanguard Job weapons.
The Bullhead Sword and Shield may be the Vanguard Job weapons in Bravely Default 2, but you don’t have to be a Vanguard to use them. No matter what Jobs you are currently running, any character that has these Job weapons equipped will automatically equip all of the Vanguard’s passive abilities. Like other Job weapons, the Bullhead Sword and Shield allows you to truly break Bravely Default 2 in creative new ways. Be sure to check out our Vanguard Job guide to learn more about each of the passives on offer.
Bravely Default 2 is available now on the Nintendo Switch.
