Octopath Traveler 2 introduces a new cast of characters following their individual stories as they journey through Solistia. Each character has a particular class with a unique skill to help them navigate the world. Check each of the eight protagonists’ skills here.
Depending on the time of day, your traveler can use one of two Path Actions. View the table below to see the Traveler, their Path Action, and what it does in Octopath Traveler 2. Players can swap the time of day at any point (given they aren’t in a scripted encounter) by tapping the right trigger on their respective controller.

While all eight Travelers are playable in Octopath Traveler 2, you’ll need to start with one of them before you gather the others. The traveler you choose at the beginning of the game cannot be removed from the party, so make sure you go with one you want to use often.
