Daisoujou Strategies

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

Equip Kamudo Magatama

Before the battle, make sure the Protagonist or Demi-fiend is wearing a Kamudo Magatama. This Magatama nullifies Physical attacks. Unfortunately, you don’t have Magatama yet that can resist his Expel and Death attacks.

Be familiar with boss attacks and skills

Make it a point to get familiar with the attacks and skills of the boss. Adjust your strategy when the boss uses skills like Meditation and Preach. Bring HP and MP recovery items to recover a lost amount.

Pass Regular Turn to Support Demons

If you start the battle with Demi-fiend, make use of the Press Turn System and pass your turn to demons that can use Debuff Support Skills.

Land Debuffs
