I just beat that guy and I gotta say. It only took me 2 tries. Once I knew what he did I could make a party that had my odds a bit better.

You need more than buffs and debuffs, but its not that hard.
>>
>>283763064
They did give you healing items. It's not that hard.

>>283763064
Wait till they start casting death spells at you, or charm your whole party. You are gonna cry.

The Pixie can heal you too and there's doctors who heal you for free every 5 minutes in the starting hospital, I think OP is just retarded

>>283764636
I didn't even have demons yet. It was just me and my only options were attack and pass.

>grinding in the fucking tutorial zone

Why?

>>283763784
To be fair, the very first fight on hard mode in the tutorial can easily kill if Demiqua gets crit. It's actually harder than Matador because you can easily get through him with smart fusion and buffs.
>>
>>283764327
He's just a casual filter that pretty much forces you to understand that you need to use the de/buffs and possibly fuse the right demons for encounters.
>>
>>283765527
>Why?
Not him but why not?
>>
>>283765527
>>grinding in the fucking tutorial zone
>Why?
To avoid bullshit deaths like the one I just experienced. I have terrible luck with RNG in JRPG's and this is no different it seems. I don't think turn based games are for me anymore.
>>
>>283765632
Because if you really, really want to grind you might as well do it later when you have multiple demons to get skills for as fusion fodder anyway. It's a god damn waste of time doing it in the tutorial zone.
>>
>>283765228
Go to the second floor dumbass

>>283765693
>avoiding bullshit deaths
>by deliberately subjecting yourself to more chances for multiple demons to ambush you while you're by yourself

Did you think this through?
>>
>>283765697
Well it's a turn based RPG, at the end of the day the more numbers on your side the better regardless of where you're at.
>>
>>283765767
>Did you think this through?
No because it's my first time playing the game.

Nocturne is one of the easiest SMTs

Also you can't grind in these games after a certain level enemies in an area just don't give enough xp
>>
If you wanted to be a dumbass and grind at the start of an rpg why the fuck wouldn't you do it right next to a save point
>>
>>283765228
Nocturne experts correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure you don't even encounter Preta until after you get pixie
You're just funposting m8
>>
>>283765792
Not really since it's a waste of time grinding in the hospital since nothing gives you experience so you end up staying way longer than what you need and you don't need to grind to beat the first boss
>>
>>283765892
Tutorial zone
>>
>>283763064
The starting fights against the pretas are basically luck based, yeah. It's one of the few bullshit parts in the game. You wanna put your first few points into endurance so you have enough health to survive getting ganked.

>Level up a couple times around Dr. Dark
>grinding in SMT games

I take it back, fuck off
>>
>>283765892
I'm not fucking lying, dude. It was right after the healer, Dr. Dark or whatever. I ran up towards the door right ahead of him, got into a fight with a Preta and died. Fuck you.

Since when? I don't remember there being a point where you couldn't get EXP in that game.

Well if you want to try again, you don't need to grind, just try to explore, get pixie, and find a save point, game is filled with them so you shouldn't have an issue.

If
Persona 1
Demikids
>>
>>283765767
In any RPG where you get more than 1 party member, you want to get them as soon as possible. So you have a better shot at killing things, and not dieing to the first enemies in the game
>>
>>283766129
I think he's saying the EXP is pitiful so there's no reason to bother.
>>
>>283766129
Sure, if you want to grind out like 5 levels on things that give you like 8 EXP tops, go for it.
>>
>>283766129
More like getting 3 experience per battle in the starting zone is a waste of time, it's like grinding against level 2 pidgeys

You get experience but it took you a million years to get experience when you could've just moved on and gotten more experience in a shorter amount of time by progressing the game
>>
>>283766170
You've never played If
>>
>>283765585

de/buffs barely even help with that fight though. The thing that kills you is damn near EVERYTHING you would've picked up is weak to force, so he teaches you about press turns.
>>
You playing on hard, OP? I did, it sucked shit to try to get to a save after grinding/recruiting a cool demon only to get gang banged by a surprise attack. Not to mention escape is almost impossible without an item on hard.

It also reminds me that I died against the dragon (very first fight) in ff mystic quest when you only had the option to attack.

I guess I can see where you're coming from. I suppose I just like the sense of security that comes from having significantly higher stats than a boss at the time.
>>
>>283766376
I did and it was great
>>
>>283766596
The game gives you a demon for free who has Zio that the boss is weak to and you can recruit a Shikigami as well since he has Zio as well to make the boss a cakewalk, you don't need to grind to beat the first damn boss
>>
>>283766758
Well I know you don't need to grind, it's grinding after all, when the hell do you NEED to do it?
It's just insurance.

Is it true Pixie becomes god tier at high level or just a meme?

One level is not gonna do it. A good way to get more stats is to get another character who has more stats
>>
>>283767045
>One level is not gonna do it.
Of course not, nobody grinds for just one level though.

30 hours into SMT IV and I feel like I haven't even scratched the surface of the game yet. Just let the demon at the government building go free because he was a cool dude

Beating this motherfucker was a glorious feeling after failing 20 times.

Should I restart my file on normal?
I tried beating Matador on hard at level 16 with all the buffs and debuffs available to me. Only Nozuchi had a zan null at that level. Shit still wasn't debuff since he'd clean any debuffs on him and wipe out everything with his physical skill.
Finally said fuck it and grinded for 2 levels for the zan repelling demons on top using all of my macca to but the force nullifying magatama. Then I steam rolled him.
I thought I would stabilize after that, but even the random encounters come off as tedious.
>>
>>283767403
Random encounters are usually harder than the bosses in every SMT game

Honestly it sounds like you need to get good. I beat him at level 14-15 then had trouble with thor, where I then grinded to level 18 for that guy with no arms that had elec absorb/resist I forget which. Then proceeded to have no problems with the game.
Granted that was since my Makami learned wind cutter so I didn't get stuck in the park
>>
>>283767000
I'm gonna be nice guy and tell you that if you keep her or her descendants, (which are always the top of the stock) to a certain door in the Amala Labrynth, it'll revert back to pixie with all stats at 30 and level 80

>>283767554

Nigga, I'm not OP. I've played 7 othersgame in the series and enjoyed all of them thoroughly.

>>283766170
None of these are even close except for SJ.

>>283767693

I wasn't that many, but my fight against him was slamming my head into a wall since I refused to grind.
Medusa is harder anyway

>>283767671
different anon

I remember being pretty mad when it was announced for 3ds then confirmed 2d

I wanted 3d models during battles

but they did a pretty good fucking job animating the effects on the sprites
>>
>>283767000
She's useful but people majorly overate how useful the upgraded pixie is

honestly, it's probably better to terf her for the free magatama and then just recruit another pixie
>>
>>283767776
Medusa was easier for me. At least you don't have walter using agi and fucking you over

I don't like having to skip through Charon just to get back to my save game. The option is nice and all but my save points are a lot better

Even with walter being a retard, minotaur didn't feel that bad, it's just that something would happen, minotaur smirked and that's a wipe.

>>283767991

>grinding for spells
All I had was sukukaja/sukunda if I recall.
Even with her at -3 and +3, she hit 88/96 of that gun move that hit all. If she decided to use it twice in her turn, that was a wipe. At least minotaur had to smirk when he decided to win.

I was like level 12 or something at medusa or something if I recall. Which was apparently underleveled.

You're fucking retarded. Even if you did, the most you could use it is once. She was the hardest boss in the game for me. I can see why people would argue minotaur though.

you need to debuff his agility because you can't hit him otherwise, retard. debuffs are everything in the matador fight

I forget, is SMT3 canon in the DMC series

or was it just one of dantes side adventures

You do know that MegaTen1&2, SMT I, II and If... and Strange Journey came out first in nintendo consoles right? The only main MegaTen game that came out first in a PS console was Nocturne, so nintoddlers as you say were the one's that let the franchise even get enough games to reach Nocturne. Of course you knew this though, since your'e obviously baiting

I'm playing DDS and loving it so far, it's my first SMT game. Where should I go from here?

It always made me sad, because that end of world scenario at the very beginning of the game is the kind of end game scenario that Dante stops.
Why didn't he stop it? Why didn't he save the world?
>>
>>283769054
Finish DDS, then play DDS2, then try Nocturne for a real mainline game. Or try Persona if you want something more story driven like DDS.

How is DDS2 anyway

I know it's a direct continuation of the first game but the encounter rate drove me fucking crazy and I never finished it

Hello everyone how are you doing?

I used sukukaja twice just to be safe and I never missed. I doubt I needed them outside of stuff like lunge.

to be fair the entire opening area in Nocturne is completely RNG on hard mode; missing an attack or getting critted basically guarantees a game over
