    Buy the SP regenerating accessories from the doctor after you've advanced far enough with her. Haven't really had to worry about SP since I did.

    I got that far with the doctor. I'm too broke to buy them at the moment.

    So stressed about social links man.im almost In August and feel like I wont complete any. This game eats up WAYYYYY too many days during story on top of having hella evenings where you cant do anything.

    I never feel like I didnt have time for social links and stat building before this, and it sucks because i know specifically in P4 i was doing hella social links. In this one ive legit only been doing party members and 3 non members and STILL feels like I dont have enough time

    Study Diner, Study in Library, Big Bang Burger, leveling Death/Takemi, books, movies and DVDs.

    I got crazy lucky in the 2nd palace and captured a treasure persona, then fused it with another and got an orobas that has bless, nuclear, fire, elec and psi attacks. And it's the versions that hit all enemies. I'm TEARING through the 3rd palace just because of that.

    I never played P4 arena because I never played P4, but I'm honestly stoked about the P5 arena rumors because Im digging the hell out of this game. Nioh, BoTW and P5 are making this a phenomenal fucking year for gamers thus far.

    Oh ya, what persona's have you guys created? I think mine are pretty op for a lvl 41 mc.

    I plan on using and updating those 2 for the rest of the game, unless the end game ones are particularly broken.

    I haven't spent a lot of time on Personas I mostly just fuse my weaker ones to make more room. I haven't really tried to engineer any yet.

    I love fusing personas. Its like egg move breeding in pkm but easier and more fun. I think it's worth it to scour around for sonas that heal, inflict status or do elem damage and that way you can kinda have 3 strong personas that cover all 3 abilities. Like right now I have orobas who does all elem damage except for ice and curse, high fairy heals and can attack buff allies/defense debuff monsters and then jack frost does snow and curse plus some heals. I have everything covered :)

    Once I establish an infiltration route, I'll go back and fuse up some more Persona.

    Only level 30 atm, but rocking with Kin-Ki, Shiki-Ouji and Leaman Sidhe.

    wait what the hell just happened?

    i was busy getting my ass kicked by Anubis when Yusuke's follow up ability activated. i thought great this will give me the ability to rob him so i can run the fuck away. no he instantly killed him.

    ok even with a defense decrease on the enemy, and an attack boost i don't see how he did that. im glad he did im just not sure how.

    Those follow up attacks are all different. Some just have high critical, some hit the entire enemy group, and Yusuke's is an instant kill

    never knew that thanks.

    i am never getting rid of Yusuke's rising slash. that is the single strongest move i have if i can consistently hit a weakness even if its an adds weakness.

    Dungeon 4 is down and fuck that boss was not playing around. you're going to want some strong defenses for that fight and also don't do what i did and run onto an enemy right before it. unlike the others there is another small section before the actual fight populated with strong enemies. got Ryuji taken hostage and lost half my SP trying to get him back.

    3rd Palace boss was trivial. I had Shiki-Ouji, so he couldn't actually damage me. The damage he did to my team was minuscule as well. That army of Rakshasa's you have to fight on the way there was many times harder.

    Most of my social links have been progressing nicely. Sojiro continues to be a pain in the ass though. Seriously when will that asshole rank up? The twins is also annoying. I reached rank 4 with them and Caroline still hasn't warmed up to my boy.

    Problem with Sojiro is his is tied to another character. If you haven't met that character yet his doesn't proceed well, and not beyond a certain point I think

    The devil social link isn't what I expected. I was hoping for a more morally ambiguous character to have it like in P4.

    Jesus christ and mohammed, mishima is a fucking moron. I get his character archetype but even then his personality is about as deep and appealing as a wet glob of toilet paper. He's boring, dumb and a coward. I like pretty much every character but he just outright pisses me off.
  • HawkingbirdHawkingbird I am thou...thou art I Joined: Posts: 26,243
    I'm guessing it has to do with Mishima's social link? I got him on rank 6 and I don't like the direction it seems to be headed. The reporter social link gives max charm every time I do it. @DrellyFish if you are still grinding charm she's a great way to do it.

    I don't think that's the way affection points or whatever work. I think it keeps building toward later levels too cause after that event the next ones have come quickly

    I'm pretty sure that's supposed to happen. Even the main character's reaction choices are almost all like that. That is to say I don't think he's badly written if that's what you're getting at, that's just his arc

    Getting past Rank 4 for Sojiro requires you to clear Futaba's palace.

    You need Max Kindness to get past 6, and to go deep into Mementos to get past 8.

    Naw he's cool, but the game doesn't really shows him in that great of light choosing to magnify his flaws for sake of comedy or his character arc. He's never really able to help much in main cases and mostly ended by him texting us rather than seeing the appreciation of the victim first hand. watching the OVA Daybreakers really gets you an appreciation for how he helps people.
    Mishima is stuck in a weird position in that he's technically helping, but not really part of thieves and really unable to physically help. He's a good kid but he's dealing with the idea that superheros do exist however he's never going to be one.

    He's getting much the same reaction as Junpie did unfortunately he's not going to get those chidori moments that really change how he appears in other peoples eyes.

    You said finished the 4th palace, which is Futaba's, so you already know about her.

    Nothing was spoiled for you.
