Shrines are areas in Octopath Traveler that allow you to give each of your eight characters secondary jobs to use in battle.
There are eight in total, with four secret jobs available across the map—and each can be unlocked by progressing through each character's story.
Secondary jobs give characters access to a new set of abilities while retaining their original moves. H'annit, for example, will always be a hunter and can capture creatures—but if she learns how to be a Dancer, she'll inherit Primrose's debuff skills over time, giving her a new line of abilities and support skills to use in battle.
