Persona 3 Reload Shadows List and Guides

Effectiveness of certain physical skills are increased.

The current moon cycle also affects the effectiveness of the physical skills listed below.

Skill Name Effect
Zan-ei Deals medium Slash damage to one target. (Power increases during new moon)
Getsu-ei Deals medium Slash damage to one target. (Power increases during full moon)

Despite Zan-ei and Getsu-ei being mid-level skills, their damage output can rival those of late-game attacks by benefiting from new moon or full moon cycles. Because of this, do not overlook using them in the game.

Getsu-ei is effective against bosses that appear during a full moon.

Getsu-ei is a particularly strong physical skill to use against strong shadows during Full Moon Operations as the ability will always gain its attack bonus because of the current moon state. Be sure to bring a Persona with Getsu-ei with you during such instances.

You are always in “Good” status during Full Moon Operations.

You automatically default to “Good” status during the day of Full Moon Operations. This means that you can spend the previous day fighting battles without worrying about being tired or sick on the day of the Full Moon.

The Tired status, instead, will be applied to your party on the day after the Full Moon Operation.

Increased rate of getting Heart Items during and near new moon and full moon.
