Well, take a look-see at Final Weapon’s Octopath Traveler II JP Farming Guide to get the jump on this topic and boost your characters!
Completing battles in specific ways grant you bonuses that give you extra cash, JP, and EXP.
Overkill is earned by dealing a powerful killing blow to a weakened enemy and nets you an EXP bonus. Untouched is earned by not taking any damage during a battle and nets you a money bonus. Domination is earned by killing an enemy in a single hit and nets you a JP bonus. Break is earned by breaking an enemy during battle and nets you an EXP bonus.
There are two special monsters that give you large amounts of EXP, JP, and money if you manage to defeat them. Forewarning, these monsters are hard to hit and are inclined to flee quickly.
The first monster in question is the Octopuff Traveler. Defeating one of these will net you 1500 Leaves, 500 EXP, and 300 JP. Defeating one of these guys can be a challenge, however.
The second monster you should keep an eye out for is the Cait Sith. Defeating one of these will net you 3000 Leaves, 1000 EXP, and 150 JP. Defeating one of these guys can be a challenge, however.
There are many skills that you can unlock that help you get even more scrumptious JP more quickly. The Merchant, Dancer, Hunter, and Thief each have an ability that will contribute greatly to your quest of amassing vast quantities of JP so that you can build the ultimate party.
