I just finished beating Shadow Kanji at level 25, first time playing persona 4 (had played 3 for maybe 30 hours before) first try!
Destroyed Nice Guy who was a pain in the ass with his spells. and focused on SKanji.
still the default persona (never actually equiped any other neither fused any) still, it went well, everyone was still alive at the end of the fight. I gave margaret all my skill cards, and I now wonder.. what should I focus on to be strong till the end of the game? Everyone still has their first weapon except for yosuke's with his wrenches.
got some tips for me? I wonder ^^ I want that "victory cry" thing, what should I prepare?
I tried to get VC but after 15 mins I gave up lol. I just went with Repel Physical.
VC is overrated even when you can get it before Rise's dungeon. SOS keeps my party at 80% SP or greater, and I have around 20 Snuff Souls and 5 Chewing Souls. Oh yeah and there's the fox which I admit isn't as good a solution since you need to keep exiting the dungeon. But whatever, VC would probably have ruined my experience.
Invigorate 2 is your friend if you don't want to save, fuse, reload, fuse, reload, fuse, reload. You get it from Sarasvati, a Lv 17 Persona that learns it at 19. That's all you really need especially if you upgrade it using a Magician card to Invigorate 3, which won't take that long if you pass I2 onto every Persona.
As for your party, farm for Magic Cloths from the dark cloaked lantern Shadow on the 6th-8th floor of the Bath House to make Mage's Marks (it doesn't take that long, it's a high drop rate unlike in Vanilla). When you're low on SP, go to an area with weak Shadows and just guard to skip your turns until it has been fully replenished.
I got through vanilla P4 without Victory Cry, and I plan to do the same here.
And the bath house boss, oi... I hated those three somuch. --- The Original Pari - Accept Nothing Less (Innocent Until Proven Evil) Keeping this in my sig until a new Phoenix Wright game is released in the US!
