  • Walkthrough done
  • Map Data for main story done

Introduction

Let's face it, there are a lot of viable strategies for clearing the main story. I'm going to present just one method here that I think is fairly straightforward. It has the following features:

  • Clear each story map just once (i.e. no grinding)
  • One trip to item world for the Episode 3 requirement, picking up a 300 Broker and 300 Manager along the way
  • All rank 1 humanoid and monster classes unlocked (except Android)
  • Product/customer rank raised to 12 (rank 30 weapons)
  • Collect a nice supply of Enforcers
  • Reincarnate Val 5 times to gain easy aptitude bonuses
  • End up with a decently powerful Val and Skull

The basic idea is to solo with a Red Skull for the first 3 episodes until Val has reincarnated 5 times. At that point Val will have a 155% ATK aptitude, as well as a decent bonus to his base ATK. Then we mostly solo with Val for the rest of the story, sometimes using the Skull in key range or AoE situations. Along the way we reincarnate the Red Skull to a Star Skull. He will end up with better stats that way.

Why Red Skull? They do more damage than Mages, and their higher SP cost is not much of an issue with healing items. Magic AoE is very versatile and magic has great range. Overall, fire weakness is more prevalent than the other two. Skulls are male and thus can be boosted by Artina.

Why Val? He is a very strong character. Two of his evilities cause him to power-up with each kill on a given map. Since he is a story character, reincarnations don't increase in mana cost, and the first 5 yield 5% bonus to all aptitudes. He has great ATK aptitude and learns rank 1-6 sword skills (though only up to rank 4 via this walkthrough). Two of his special skills absorb a percentage of the damage dealt, making him easier to keep alive than other classes. He is male and thus can be boosted by Artina. Leveling Val also has some side benefits: jumping ability and enemy capturing.

I should point out that this walkthrough isn't meant to hold your hand. If you've never played a Disgaea game before, you should probably try another walkthrough. I give a few brief notes for each stage, as well as information on what to do back at base camp. My goal is simply to demonstrate one way to clear the main story without repeating any stages.

Note that you could certainly make things easier on yourself if you're willing to do a little grinding, especially on 5-2. Especially if you nab yourself an early Statistician and do some duping. If you want to, go for it, but the walkthrough assumes only the minimal map clearing.

A note on hospital exploitation. It's not as lucrative as it was in Disgaea 3, mainly because two of the best selling items aren't awarded as prizes now. I wouldn't bother because if you follow this guide you will get product rank 12 anyway just from going through the story. But if you decide you want to spend hours on hospital exploitation, you'll net a profit of roughly 19 million.

The walkthrough contains detailed enemy and EXP/Mana/HL information for each stage in the main story. If a map is different upon being revisited, it will be marked with a (*) in the title. Note that the walkthrough assumes you don't revisit any stages, the data is just for your reference. Sometimes more than one total is listed for EXP/Mana/HL. If so, the bottom total generally includes geo block or panel bonuses.

Other Resources

  • There is a nice selection of faqs on gamefaqs.com for this game. Check them out.
  • The message board for D4 on gamefaqs is frequented by newbies and vets alike; good place to ask specific questions.
  • Offical strategy guide: I haven't seen it, but general consensus on the board is that it's shit. But hey I'm biased. I worked on the D3 guide (competing company).
  • Disgaea 3 guide: A sizeable portion of the mechanics for D4 is the same as D3, so the D3 guide is actually a decent reference for D4.
  • Japanese guide: I don't have this yet but I've ordered it.
  • Future versions of this document, obviously!

General Tips

  • Once you get Artina, place her next to Val or Red Skull for a nice boost.
  • Bringing a Sorcerer out of the base panel will weaken all enemies on the map slightly.
  • When buying items to raise the customer rank, sell them right back to recover half your money. Repeating this process makes your HL go roughly twice as far.
  • Be on the look-out for Enforcer innocents on emblems. Save them.
  • Always keep the following items handy: HP recovery, SP recovery, Fairy Dust.
  • Always keep evil symbols like Training Grounds and Aura Pyramid full of characters; don't waste potential gains.
  • When you'll receive EXP from the bonus gauge when clearing a map, bring characters out of the base panel so they get the bonus too.
  • As long as you don't take an action, you can change equipment. One of the best uses for this is shoes.
  • Grab the three chests around the base during each episode, as this contributes to a couple of trophies.
  • Exit out of the hospital prize screen to randomize rarity and innocents. I've only seen normal and rare prizes there, so either legendary is impossible or it's so rare that it might as well be impossible.
  • Exit out of a shop at the base to randomize the inventory and innocents.
  • There are lots of ways to survive against tough opponents. One is to sacrifice a weak ally by lifting an enemy unit. The enemy will be unable to act for 1 turn. Another is to lift up one ally with another. Only the ally on the bottom can be harmed, unless there is a lot of AoE flying around.
  • There is no penalty in this game for killing allies, so if someone will be caught in friendly fire don't worry about it.
  • It's ok to kill neutral characters (they appear with yellow health bars). Might as well get the extra EXP/Mana/HL. Plus they often have boss modifiers for those rewards.

Episode 1

Get 3x chests around the base. Unequip all but Red Skull (RS). Equip RS with Makeshift Bow, Slippers, Imperial Seal, Vinyl Cloth. You can't use specials o the very first tutorial map, hence the bow. Equip Val with Paring Knife and 3x Vinyl Cloth.

As you unlock hospital prizes:

Get rare stuff with 3 Innocents if possible, because they sell for more. Equip Orbs on RS. Get emblems with Enforcers and don't sell yet.

Evil Symbols can now be placed. Reload until you can pass Hall Monitor. Place four people in it so you get 7 pat downs. Note that the pat downs reset each time you clear a map. You don't have chit chat yet so use Fenrich or someone with mana to spare and select Cheaper Stuff. Press square on Senators to initiate the pat down. You can get up to rank 10 items so try to get a legendary Sorcerer's Staff, and Plant Saber. Don't pass the bill, just return. Place Aura Pyramid and Training Ground. Arrange them such that Val and RS are in both. Also place Fighter and Thief in Training Ground. Now Val will earn 50% of the mana RS earns when he kills something, as well as 10% of the EXP.

The idea with Training Ground is to use it to unlock your humanoid classes, helped along by bonus gauge EXP. Keep switching out which characters are standing there and you will easily unlock all the classes by the end of the game (except Androids which requires 2nd cycle). I won't make further mention of this in the walkthrough, so just stay on top of it yourself.

Raise customer/product rank to 4. Buy a Prelude for RS. Pass Rosen Queen at the senate. Arrange it so that someone standing on Prinselytise Room or Forest of Corpses is in Rosen Queen so you can buy Slippers. Buy Slippers with just one Innocent.

Now we need to raise an item to level 10 in order to proceed. By this time I had 26 Enforcers with emblems from pat downs and the hospital, but 12 will be plenty for what we're about to do. Buy Flan or Protein Shakes from the item shop that have Managers or Brokers. They will be level 28. We're looking for 6 of each. If you've unlocked product rank 5 already, even better. Eclairs and Bloody Marys can have level 33 Brokers/Managers, so you'd only need 5 of each. Use the Enforcers to move the Managers and Brokers onto a pair of Slippers and combine until you have a Manager and Broker of at least 150.

I chose Slippers because they are only rank 3 and therefore have weak enemies in item world. We aren't powerful enough to level good equipment yet.

Create a Mothman and equip him with a few more Slippers. Ditto for your RS. Mothmen are great for item world before you get Masked Heroes, since they can fly and have 6 MV to start.

Before venturing into the Slippers item world, have plenty of HP/SP recovery items and a Mr. Gency. Our item world setup isn't yet ideal, but you should have no trouble clearing gatekeepers with RS and running through with the Mothman. Take the Innocent Boost route. You want to subdue the Broker and Manager on your way to floor 10 if possible. If you finish floor 10 and haven't found both Innocents, just reload floor 11 until you get them.

Now you have a 300 Broker and Manager, making mana/HL gains much faster. Move them to whatever equipment you're using as needed.

It's not really worth trying to get the chests since you already have better equipment. Destroy the barriers with either throwing or by just hacking through.

Take the Reverse Damage panels from the enemies via lifting. The others will eventually hop off them. Snipe with RS.

You should now have enough mana to reincarnate RS to a Star Skull (Genius). Henceforth known as SS. He will soon exceed the RS in power. Keep him in Training Ground and Aura Pyramid with Val because he's useful on certain maps.
