Castti Florenz Character Guide

The die is Castti

Recommended Videos

Castti is the Apothecary of Octopath Traveler 2. She is one of the most well-rounded characters in the game, as she has access to adequate offense and defense. Need to hit a single foe hard? Castti can do it. Did a big enemy party appear? Castti can strike them all at once. Does someone need healing? Well, Castti wouldn’t be a good Apothecary if she couldn’t handle that too.

Castti is locked to using Axes, so she doesn’t quite rise to the power levels that more dedicated attackers do. Still, check out everything she is capable of below.

Castti’s Path Actions and Talents

Castti’s primary Path Action is Inquire. This is the default method of getting information from NPCs, which can lead to hidden items or town-specific perks. As long as Castti meets a predetermined level requirement, Inquire will always succeed.

At night, Castti interestingly gets the ability to Soothe people in towns. Though this requires items to use, Soothe will instantly knock out an NPC and prevent them from blocking any paths. This is a great compliment to actions like Challenge or Provoke, since this achieves the same effect while completely circumventing combat.

Of all the talents in the game, Castti has one of the most unique ones in Concoct. If you played Octopath Traveler, this functions similarly to how Alfyn’s Concoct command worked. By combining ingredients in battle, you’ll be able to trigger a wide variety of curative and offensive abilities. If you have enough items in your inventory, Castti can fill almost any role with this Talent!
