Today is a big day for me. After a 100 hours of Maniac, I finally managed to beat her. :) I also made it harder for myself by applying these rules to my game:
- No Fusion throughout the game - No Skillcards - No Nihil weapons - No items that cover weaknesses (since they're only obtained through fusion)
So my best Personae were Skadi and Raphael. Thanks to Narasimha and Atropos for lending me their Power and Mind Charge. And thanks to Aigis, Junpei and Yukari for their support throughout the battle. (I love Vorpal Blade)
So if you think Margeret is hard with your overpowered Messiah, think again. It took me about 10 deaths to finally pass the annoying 3rd stage (Maziodyne & Magarudyne suck-.-)
Anyway, all that's left for me now is to beat Elizabeth. Instead of everyone's favorite Orpheos Telos I'm going to use Saki Mitama instead, because it has 3 elemental resistances. So all I have to do is level it to 99 and hope to max all stats. Since it's impossible to beat Elizabeth without skillcards, I'm going to have to use them... But I won't register Saki with them.
LOL! Good luck even denting Liz at all. She also happens to have physical resistances of sorts during the first four phases so you might even be more gimped on a damage per time ratio.(remember, if you don't defeat Liz in a certain amount of turns its an instant Haxigolaon for you)
IIRC Divine Pillar is basically mandatory in Maniac due to the insane amount of damage she will do.
Katawa Shoujo: The visual novel that defies and kicks logic to the curb. Official contender to fight for Lilly as waifu.
You will barely survived her attack without divine pillar I think, iirc with armor of light+divine pillar (no resist from the persona), her ma-dyne deal like 350+ on maniac, I think it will reach >500+ without divine pillar, which mean 1 turn KO since we can onky have 999 hp You may need to constantly cast rakukaja to survive, but cmiiw, ita been a while
Drop weapon master, normal attack wont do much on her, You need to rely on high counter damage to beat her within the time limit (12~13 cycle), which is very luck based and frustating
And no unshaken will? Either use void tome or always guard on her bad status turn, which is very risky if she do normal attack 1st to remove guard stance
It will be doable with divine pillar, armor of light, and unshaken will, but without those thing..... Good luck :p
Where is heaven? Above the sky, and below your feet.
I'm pretty sure it's impossible to beat Liz even though you had like 00.01% chance. Doesn't sound so convincing right ? Well, good luck. I tried almost all method but she still pawned me like less than 2 sec.
Unshaken Will and Tome Of The Void are only obtained through fusion unfortunately. So if I did use them then the whole "no fusion playthrough" thing would kind of die. But man I didn't even think about her attacking in the first turn to destroy my block... That is very risky indeed.
Well I'm going to get a bunch of Best Friends so hopefully they'll help. Haha and at least I still have a chance of dodging;D
...But yeah let's get real I agree with you guys that this seems next to impossible but I might aswell try. My Saki Mitama is already level 87 so hopefully I can face her by the end of today. I'll post my progress;)
Alright guys, before I tell you how it went, I just want to say that THIS IS POSSIBLE. It actually is possible to kill Elizabeth WITHOUT Divine Pillar, Unshaken Will and with only physical attacks/high counter on MANIAC. However it requires extreme luck and to know exactly which action to take next.
After 10 deaths (yes I counted) I got her to quarter HP without even using up my Enduring Soul. I was doing well until I accidently used Best Friends instead of Infinity-_- so yeah...
I've replaced Omega Drive with Eye of Wind because the "Best Friends" effect runs out before the Magarudyne spell, and two of those spells without Defence Up means death. So Eye of Wind gives a high chance to dodge those spells. Fuuka's Oracle and Cadenzas are also very helpful.
So yeah this is possible, and I'm going to keep trying. This could be my greatest achievement in gaming history to date. Wish me luck:)
Arghh-_- man my best attempt was where I got her to around 10700HP and then she destroyed my block and casted panic, so I couldn't use Infinity. So then I looked her straight in the eyes while drinking Mitsuru's champagne. And died.
