Shrine of the Huntress Location - Octopath Traveler

Players can unlock the Hunter secondary job in Octopath Traveler by locating the Shrine of the Huntress.


Now that Nintendo Switch players are happily adventuring away in Octopath Traveler, the latest RPG release from the team at Square Enix, they're most certainly looking to start putting together their parties and diving into the game's eight different storylines. Part of creating a powerful party comes down to hero customization, and the best way to customize heroes is by equipping secondary jobs that can be unlocked at various shrines spread across the continent of Orsterra. Keep reading to learn where to find the Shrine of the Huntress and unlock the Hunter secondary job class in Octopath Traveler.

Where to Find the Shrine of the Huntress

The Shrine of the Huntress is located just east of the town called Victors Hollow, itself accessible from the junction known as East Victors Hollow Trail. The shrine itself is easy to find: from the sign post just a short ways north of the entrance to Victors Hollow, turn to follow the path east. When the dirt trail turns south, continue walking east into the grass, past the rocky outcropping blocking the path from view, to find the shrine entrance on the north side of the cliff.

Once players have walked through the entrance to the cave, follow the path east and then north up the stairs. Approach the altar and press A to have the heroes hear the voice of Draefendi, the Huntress, who will express admiration for the party having made the journey so far. As a gesture of goodwill, Draefendi will then unlock the Hunter secondary job class, allowing all party members to take advantage of the powerful stat bonuses and skills attributed to the job.

Even with the Shrine of the Huntress out of the way, there are still seven other shrines that Octopath Traveler players must locate in order to have access to all eight core secondary job classes. To learn where each of these shrines can be found, head over to our guide to all shrine locations in Octopath Traveler.
