Fuck that stupid bonus boss in Yukiko's Castle. I had to grind up to level 18 or so, and I still had some issues taking it down. Fortunately, the second bonus boss was a lot easier though.

Does anyone have a level guide for each boss so that I know around what level to be before heading in. I think I'm going to have to forgo my social links and focus on grinding a bit.

From there on out I'm trying to make sure I grind a bit when I visit the castle. Still trying to decide if I want to try and get as many trophies now as I can, or just enjoy the story and see if I'm interested in a second playthrough.

I'm almost 60 hours in and I have 44% of the trophies without really going out of my way to get them. Just enjoy and beat the game and I'm sure you'll wind up with at least 50% completion anyways.

There are plenty of P4G guides out there but I can't say I've seen a level guide. Just wait till you get to the very last floor of a dungeon that still has enemies and look at the levels of the shadows you fight there. If you're about the same level, or a couple higher, you should be good to fight the boss of that dungeon.

Yup that asshole. It pretty much boils down to luck whether it'll do Rampage in turn 2 before you set up all your buffs or not even cast it till it has a sliver of HP left.

As for levels, I usually complete the entire dungeon in one day and clean up quests that require you to go to previous dungeons. That usually puts me in a good spot level wise where I don't have to grind that much or any at all.

Visit the dungeons on rainy days. You'll find rare shadows and golden hands to fight. Use the megido line of spells to kill the hands. That will solve any level or money problems for a while.

How/when does one get these "Almighty Skills" such as Megidolaon? Those golden hands ALWAYS eat away at my SP, and then when I have them down to a sliver of health, they Escape like the little bastards they are.

As you would think, it really depends on the Persona you use. Some will learn the skill naturally, and others can be taught the skill through skill cards.

Just finished this game last night after never playing a Persona game before...

Wow was that a great game. Can't believe I've never played any of these before, but I totally get the love and following that these games get now.

Just some final stats,

Finished at 64 hours play time
Finished at lvl 99
Max social stats
Probably 70% Social Links maxed(I got the trophy/bonus for 50% before I maxed out 4-5 more)
Finished with 57% trophies without really going out of my way(for the earlier discussion)

Anyway, this game is definitely up there on my favorites of all-time.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

My first experience with one came in one of the first two dungeons when I started hearing similar noises to what I heard in P3P when he was roaming a floor looking for you, which scared the shit out of me. When I figured out that he was just in a chest on that floor, that was a relief to me. I didn't bother with him because it was near the beginning of the game.

The first one is a level 21 tower persona. Hama skills can work too if you are lucky.

Those little bastard Golden Hands. I'm like 55 hours in and I think I'm around level 60ish and have access to the Almighty skills.

I can't tell you how many times I got into a fight, saw four golden hands and instantly sported one of those gamer "I'm about to cash in on exp and $$$" boners. I would hit them with an Almighty and have all four of them way down on HPs right out of the gate, only to have three of them bolt off while the fourth stays jumping around like an idiot.

Makes me want to throw the Vita.

Have you guys aced a mid-term yet? I didn't pull it off until the third exam. It took a great deal of restraint to not look up the answers on GameFaq.

Every time I see that one female teacher, Van Halen's "Hot For Teacher" starts playing in my head. Both of them. :D

I suggest focusing all your attention on one Golden Hand at a time until it's dead and then moving on to the next one. If I can get a player advantage, I can kill at least one Golden Hand before they even get a chance to attack/retreat.

I actually aced the first mid-term I took but I've used a guide for every mid-term since lol.

Has anyone found a guide for the Midnight Trivia Miracle Quiz? I've looked and can't seem to find one. I haven't unlocked the Finals yet but after playing through and beating the Prelims and Playoffs, I'm dreading them.

You should be at least level 80 before taking on The Reaper. :P

Open 20 chests in total, then you'll hear the chains rattling. On the 21st chest, make sure it is a regular chest and not a gold one. When you do, there's a slight chance the Reaper will pop out, it will warn you before he does. If you open the chest and he does not pop out, you have to do it all over again.

My other charcters are 33-36 so they aren't too far behind.

You can romance any/all of the girls, they won't go for anyone else. It doesn't really matter who you choose though.

On your first playthrough, you should focus on leveling up your party's (especially the characters you use most) SLs, since their personae will evolve once they reach rank 10.

You can max social link in playthrough. You even have more time in golden than the original.

Well, I'm 34 hours in and I just unlocked the

Dungeon. I figure once I complete this I'm half way through the game? My character levels range from 38-31, which Chie at 31. I just went and beat the first two optional bosses. I may grind a bit in the
Spoiler
dungeon to try and raise Chie up to around 34-35. She'll still be one of the lower leveled characters, but better than 31.

Do any of the main characters die? I don't mind if there is a spoiler, I just hate leveling characters up if it is ultimately useless.

Also: I freaking love the social aspect of this game. It pretty much lets me relive my youth as the "cool kid", which I definitely wasn't in High School :razz:

You can just fight the enemies in the Void Quest dungeon, they should be around the same level and if not, shouldn't have any trouble defeating them.
