Octopath Traveler Wiki

Warmaster is a secret job in Octopath Traveler. It is earned by defeating the god Winnehild, Warbringer at the end of the Shrine of the Warbringer.

Warmasters are purely offense-oriented with no supportive skills, and are unique in that they are versed in all six weapons (Swords, Polearms, Daggers, Axes, Bows and Staves). As such, the Warmaster job can be considered the physical equivalent to the Sorcerer job, though their divine skill, Winnehild's Battle Cry, is more comparable to the Runelord's divine skill Balogar's Blade than the Sorcerer's Dreisang's Spell. Among the stat bonuses granted by the Warmaster job is +12% Phys. Atk. and +6% Accuracy, to complement their offense-oriented playstyle.

The Warmaster's third and fourth support skills, Fortitude and Physical Prowess respectively, both help increase the equipping character's physical damage output. The former has synergy with both the Apothecary skill Last Stand and the Apothecary's second support skill, Hale and Hearty; the latter can be recommended to any physical attacker in general i.e. Olberic, H'aanit, Alfyn and Therion.

The Warmaster job is one of only two jobs that learns no magical skills at all, the other being Warrior.


Each basic skill costs 2000JP, with the divine skill costing 5000JP

Main article: Shrine of the Warbringer

This job can be found at the altar within the Shrine of the Warbringer, which is west of Riverford. The path leading to the dungeon is near the entrance to South Orewell Pass from North Riverford Traverse. The path is not hidden and is directly south. Once at the Shrine you will have to defeat Winnehild, Warbringer in order to have the job unlocked.


With its focus on massive physical damage using all six weapons, the Warmaster job is recommended for physical-oriented characters.
