Dresspheres, often shortened to "spheres", are the key of the job system in Final Fantasy X-2. Each character must have one active sphere at all times. A set of spheres can be equipped through a Garment Grid so that the active sphere can be changed at any time (though in battle, changing a character's active sphere takes up their turn).
Dresspheres are not equipped directly, but placed in Garment Grids which are equipped directly. The character will then have access to all of the dresspheres in the equipped Garment Grid.
New dresspheres are acquired throughout the game's storyline and sidequests. Below is a quick reference guide on how to get all of them and each sphere’s general use or theme.
