False God Demiurge First Form Strategies

Persona 5 Strikers - Tree of Knowledge False God Demiurge First Form King Monarch Final Boss Strategies

Here is a breakdown of the battle strategies against the boss:

Carry HP and SP Recovery Items

Before engaging the boss, bring a stock of HP and SP recovery items. These items can be bought from accessible vending machines, food stands, store, and restaurants. You can also buy ingredients from Sophia’s Shop and other real world stores. Then, cook these ingredients for additional HP and SP items through Joker’s Kitchen. Consumables serve to facilitate recovery especially for those scenarios when SP drops at an all time low.
