About to pop this bad boy into my 3ds.
This will be my first smt game, not counting Persona 3 and 4, anything I should keep in mind, general advices, character builds?
If you're gonna go with a physical build for your character, keep in mind that Str basically only affects regular attacks, while Dex affects physical skills. Basically Dex>Str.
Recruit every demon you can for fusion fodder
minotaur will make you regret playing, but once you make it past him and medusa the game opens up a ton and becomes a lot easier until the end.
also, collect as many demons as you can to fuse with conpendium
>Do physical build in nocturne
>Oni bosses section
You might find the game stulid hard and a bit boring, but thats just the first 5 hours
Hold on till you get to Tokyo, that's where the game starts to shine
Once you hear that overworld theme you won't put the game down
>Personababy pirate about to play his first ever SMT game.
Yes. They kinda screwed up on the STR stat and the fact that physical attacks now also cost MP. You can cirumvent this on MC by building properly, but on demons, magic fares much better than physical.
tl;dr: physical MC, magic demons
>not having a harem of qt. spell casters, and healers with you at all times
Are you for real? The game lets you fuse whatever useless demon you have so you don't have to grind. It's even made easier this time and you get to pick whatever spells you want on the result.
The only ones that aren't are Charge and Concentrate, but it's obvious the buffs he's talking about are -kaja and -kunda spells. Unless you're a retard and run from every single battle you should be high enough level to fuse what you need when you reach a boss.
Why aren't you playing SMT IF... /v/?
