Knocking on Death’s Door Request Walkthrough
|Objective||Defeat the Reaper|
This request can only be accessed by clearing all Painful Past+ requests (post-game). It is recommended to take on Reaper with a party at Level 75 or higher.
The Reaper does not have any weaknesses or resistances against any particular damage type, though Physical and Gun attacks may deal critical damage to it. A party consisting of Joker, Skull, Fox, and Wolf should do well against it.
Joker with Arsene (and any strong Personas obtained through fusion) has access to good Physical and Gun skills as well as various buffs, debuffs, and healing abilities. You should constantly switch between attacking the enemy and casting utility and healing skills throughout the fight.
Skull‘s focus on Physical and Electricity skills will also prove effective against the Reaper. Skull can score Critical Hits and inflict Shock on Reaper. You can then follow-up with Physical, Gun, and Nuclear attacks to deal even more damage. You should also buff allies with Matarukaja to boost their attack power during the fight.
Fox‘s arsenal of skills that mostly consist of Physical and Ice skills is also recommended for the fight and works similarly as Skull’s. The only difference is that Fox inflicts Freeze instead of Shock. Have him also use skills like Masukukaja to increase evasion and critical evasion during battle.
Lastly, Wolf‘s access to Physical, Gun, and Almighty skills all work well to complete your party. He also provides valuable utility in the form of the all-in-one buff skill Heat Riser that targets a single ally and can also hit the Reaper with the all-in-one debuff skill Debilitate to decrease the enemy’s attack power, defense power, and evasion, and critical evasion in battle.
As a final tip, be sure to have a full stock of HP and SP recovery items to be able to last throughout the fight.
