What about physical skills that says it's magic or magic skills that are deemed phys like Star Flare or Aura Bolt?

>>2861083
I think it refers to using Physical damage to Magical defense or the reverse.
>>
>>2861083
I believe both use your magic stat for damage. Aura bolt can be physically countered, not sure if it can be jammed. Star flare can't be jammed and I don't think it can be countered either.

What the fuck? And here and I thought the characters just needed to have attacks with matching arrow directions with the dual arrows serving as a "link" between 2 directions that don't match.
No wonder that shit didn't work most of the time.
>>
>>2861138
yeah
for instance if you've got all four turns lined up like that, you want whoever goes first to use something with a down arrow, 2nd and 3rd to use skills with the green both ways arrows, and whoever goes last needs an up.

OR you can use combo focus/combo lead/hat of dreams/melos' letter and unga bunga me do combo

Lupin's Note makes the Steal action target the "Rare Drop", its better if you get it before Goemon's since that counts as a "Rare Drop" itself.
It's used in conjunction with Goemon's to 100% steal OOParts.
You get it in:
A hidden room in the final dungeon of each route, you need the airdash.

blue rose + training tactic + bikini + 4 fiends + auto fight
you do have to be a bit aware of grand magic though, the wizard will rez people with water and the cleric can max wind to actually hurt you if you're not keeping that in check. having some people with fire magic for aura bolt is nice even if you're grinding something else, because even if the wizard is the only one alive, you can still hit him with it and not get spell countered to bring down the water affinity from his spells
>>
>>2862071
Equip the weapon you want, go to an area you can easily win fights, have everyone you want to train attack or use a cheap weapon art, if there's someone you don't want to train have them defend. Then just get into fights and autofight. Make sure you're wearing blue rose OOParts. You can get fancy with it and use Ringo Drive as >>2862074 suggests if you want. If it's magic you want to train then just do the same except instead of attacking cast the basic attack spell of the appropriate element.
>>
>>2862295
The fiends are better for training attributes than weapon skill. Though there's no reason why you can't do both at the same time.

If you're on top of the train and go right beyond the edge of the map, you'll arrive at Shiki's house. You can get yelled at by Shiki and you can get a loredump from Chris. And most importantly, you can fight the most powerful enemy on the main six routes. Dark Enoki and Shimeji appear on all seven routes, but they do not drop their special item on the seventh for some reason. It's not anything important and you can easily steal it from them without winning their fight.

How much does the party you choose, and how you equip them, matter in the long run, both gameplay and story wise?
I'm only 2 hours in but it seems like there's minimal gameplay distinction between party members.
The crystal and weapon stat growth systems seems to have a big sunk cost element, so should I just run with the same 4 start to end?
>>
>>2863790
You need to play through the game 6+1 times with the same general pool of characters. Just pick your 3 favorites and use a different group in the next run.
>>
>>2863790
not all that much except for some of the special characters like Prim and Kelly having extra powerful abilities, or Freddy having lots of magic unlocked at the start
you can build anyone into anything, you end up drowning in crystals by endgame, and side characters you don't use will level up their masteries really quickly so if you want to change squads at any point you generally won't be behind at all. you also carry over side characters from one route to the next

tl;dr pick the ones you think are cute, and maybe take along the sidekicks when you go fight their keepers for extra dialogue
>>
>>2863790
>So should I just run with the same 4 start to end?
Yes, but you will miss some flavor dialogue from party members related to that area.
>How much does the party you choose, and how you equip them, matter in the long run, both gameplay and story wise?
It matters for the ??? (Jewel Box of Memories) you get in the main menu after you finish any route. After you finish the route you can save the statistics of any member for a certain cost, main heroine/heroines can be saved for free. Since you get most party members who are not hat keepers (you can't get Prim in Dora's route though) in all routes you can experiment and save the build you like most on subsequent playthroughs.
>>
>>2863648
>>2863628
And if that doesn't work for you, apply the patch for those whom JP locale doesn't work for.

>>2863790
Most characters are totally interchangeable aside from their initial stats being a bit better or worse. It's fine to pick any 3 you like and stick with them the whole time, but if you're going to do all of the routes, try to change up your team every route so that every character is in good shape for the final route. As for characters who aren't interchangeable, Primrose has some solid unique abilities, most main characters pick up a unique advantage at some point, and a few temporary guest characters have unique abilities too. It's not that bad to train up new characters in the late game if you want to switch.

Is there a way to deal with the angel boss' delayed lightning attack somehow?
I tried kitting out my team with wind resist charms and super guard, but they are still taking 150+ damage from the aoe alone when defending with the guard tactic activated. And it seems like it just ignores spell counters and reflection for some reason?
Rushdown did not work either.
>>
>>2867981
remember Values figure in pretty majorly for that fight, the higher the values of battle the stronger Janice is, but that also makes the final final boss stronger
but if he's easier to take down than trying to keep the other keepers all alive, pump her to 99% and focus on bursting down the self eaters
or leave it at like 50%-ish if you can handle the group fights so that Sif isn't so hard
mel's is a real bitch, that thing can wipe her party in a single turn while the others fuck around a bit more so i'd concentrate on taking out that babby first

as far as i know it's only two, either you save everyone + beat Sif or you don't do one of these and pay the price
i won't say there's staggering amount of difference between the two but janice deserves a W for once in her goddamn life
there's true route stuff, however, so if you've heard some conflicting information that might be where it's coming from

>>2868023
Who the FUCK is Sif

>>2868015
reflect won't work against all-target spells in general
are you fighting her super early on? i don't remember her being much of a problem but you can always try a different area and come back later with better gear/tactics

How come Sera and Feuilletine didn't get their own bodies and have to share bodies like schizos with Dora and Meshleia? Other keepers like Eris was revived with bodies. Imagine how awkward it must be when Dora is banging Mesh and her sister comes out to give tips.

yeah that pairing is the one fucking bizarre one i can't get over
it's a fucking mental 4some with incest and also technically some selfcest for good measure?
maybe sera just gets off on watching serviata exist and fuck with people and that's enough to keep her happy

i guess separating them doesn't exactly work if they're built out of that person but who even knows
realization encoding is basically magic at this point, surely they can do something

Any tips to beat Eris/Melissa in Youko story?
>>
>>2869129
counter (death's music box helps massively, cleopatra's asp is great but you might need the slot for something else) and aluminum buckle so her own counters don't wreck you
sole survivor for big boost to stats but also i found last stand helps if you're sure you can tank the hits
OS gain and maybe avoid comboing if you can for maximum OS mileage because being able to OS every round is about the only way to stay alive during some of her turns
>>
>>2869129
The most important thing is to OS every round. Wear the aluminum buckle if you use physical attacks and the coso spark plug if you use magic. I like fire magic with the doublecast perfume because it does tons of damage and one cast of OS charge fills 80% of your meter.
>>
>>2869269
Oh yeah, if you're using magic, glue himiko's golden crest to one of your equipment slots. Likewise try to fit the OS power up gem on if you're going physical (himiko's crest does not allow OS power up to work for casters). OS gain up is a good alternative to the OS charge spell. The other anon's suggestion about counter + death's music box is good, you can focus almost entirely on defense that way. Just take it slow and steady.

Well they are the same brains. They still had Eris's brain around, so she only needed a body. They probably could have created cloned brains with realization encoding for Sara and Matryoshka, but Dora and Mesh didn't seem too excessively bothered by their new lives as insane people. Speaking of, what's the deal with realization encoding anyway? I originally assumed it was some kind of psychic power since NPG already pays it's bills by converting some kind of brain energy into electricity, but it seems like the peach supercomputer can also do that on its own, if not as well as the Hat World crew. I headcanon that peach can do it because it has attained sentience and/or a soul, possibly through Chatea.
>>
>>2869343
think Digimon
it's using computer power to uhhh, make things real by...lots and lots of energy? we are not in hard science fiction territory here.
>>
>>2869343
Realisation Encoding is the algorithm of direct application of energy generated by NPG facility into the real world through recreating Hat World Phenomenae (gems/magic/strength/charge actions/ decoys/et c.) and is used to simulate matter given shape seen in game as to not drive humans insane with constant flickering (think Big Mama bossfight but a room full of them talking in inhuman voices). As for how Peach can do that, well, it had access to the algorithm through Chatea long before Yoko came as she had enough knowledge to recreate Mel's timeline where it was fully realised - the rest is govering enough energy (Cybernetics will have no problem there being a corporation focused on data processing devices) and using it.

Just started Natalie's route. It's pretty neat how since Lavie is part of your party, you get her hat's bonus by default, and she's also able to use Coercion.

>>
>>2869418
to be honest i've literally only been using protag keeper+their partner+yuno+melissa since the first route
i only just swapped the partner for yoko due to having been spoiled a bit and having done janice's route where melissa is her partner anyways
>>
>>2869422
nothing wrong with that, if it ain't broke don't fix it
swapping out the right characters when attacking the right worlds gives you a little extra dialogue but rarely anything major

prim on the other hand is always fun to drag along but if you're on natalie's route you won't be seeing her for a long while

Okay, I need some help. I'm trying to do sidequests in Natalie's route, I got a bunch of them half-complete, but suddenly nobody's showing up for me to talk to to actually continue the quests. I'm right before the final area (presumably).
Julietta isn't showing up to do Megagoro despite doing the rest of her quests.
Polly isn't showing up to do Rin/Ran despite having seen the cutscene of them showing up at the cafe.
Audrey isn't telling me about the red-hooded figure at Castle of Thorns despite having done the stuff in world of dreams/toys.
Hilde isn't showing up to let me do Serviata despite having done everything else with Servi.
Mono isn't showing up to do her thing despite having talked to her at all the knowledge points.

I even made sure to fight Lavie and "get" her hat and that still did jack shit.
The only thing I can think of is that there's something I forgot to do that's holding everything up somehow, but I can't at all think of what it could be. My memory's a bit shit, though, so AFAIK it might be something really obvious.
>>
>>2870969
Okay, nevermind, apparently the issue is just that I need to enter the final area first before the sidequest stuff reactivates.
>>
I'm on my first rout, but how the FUCK are you suppose to kill Clock girl? Nothing is working, party members can't revive from rev gem, swearing cutie ability cost 155 sould while i have 50 AS MAX soul on her for some reason and after ringo drive and all the aoe i'm just completely dead. Any suggestions?
Also, why is my stats not going past the hat limits (999 life, 20 max stats, etc), since i have them all?
>>
>>2871230
You need to kill bosses at higher power levels to increase the stat caps. Its your reward for not just killing everyone at the minimum level.
>>
>>2871230
Give Lavie her hat back from your chair at your home and fight her at a higher power level to increase your life cap. Janice for your stat caps, etc. talk to the conductor just before Clock Girl's room to adjust her power. Cast big spells to keep your mana down so Clock Girl's ringo drives are weaker. Are you wearing high level armor? Are you using a defensive tactic when she oversouls? Earth magic with the baalbek stone OOPart equipped gives you the best revive spell in the game. A full party heal with a max HP buff and it costs less than the water magic full party heal. Just toss out a mana potion right before casting if you don't have enough mana.
>>
>>2871245
WTF I beat the game without knowing this
>>
>>2871829
beating the route gives you that respective character's max limit up so it's not like you *have* to, it just helps ahead of time
that's why a lot of people beat up on lavie early on, she's not very hard and she gives you an extra 200 max hp
>>
Sorta related to what’s being discussed, is there a benefit to beatjng the route end bosses at higher strengths like there is with the keepers or is it just for funnsies
>>
>>2871230
Here's a tip that works in general: Toki No Freeze "skips" an enemy's Oversoul turn, wasting it and forcing them to build up their meter again to OS. (It can also skip certain scripted actions, like the demon dude from world of life stage 2 draining all the mana in the area at the start of the fight.)

funsies and challenge, mainly
some of them are absolute nightmares at higher %
janice's is the only one that's got some advantages, the higher the world of battle's values are the stronger janice will be for the penultimate brawl. but that makes the final boss equally harder. still definitely doable at 99% though, and you'll have an easier time with the first half.
if you wanted to be a REAL mad hatter you could leave everyone else's values at 99% and go in for that fight. no idea what that would be like, however

good thing i've been prudent in keeping backup saves just before each route's final fight, and my current run was early enough that i don't feel too bad about resetting.

Natalie's, I'm on Lavie's now. I could probably just redo it if I really care that much about it.

files.catbox.moe/ykcdcb.zip

>>2872294
Thanks, but it was just a posterity save, I don't really need it that badly. At worst it'll mess with my OCD, but like I said, if I care that much I can probably just blitz through in a few hours by skipping the sidequests and cutscenes.
>>
>>2872303
Right on. Best of luck with Lavie's route, her final boss is by far the hardest out of the main six routes.

Fuck you, Maria. Fuck you with a 10 feet pole.

Seriosly, that bossfight requires way too specific setup to pull off. Only Yoko can do any damage here and I had to retrain Janice in spears to Decoy+Evil Eye physical attacks from Maria. Combo Focus is a MUST for the second phase and don't even try to attempt the boss without Advancia. Well, that mystery solve, I'm gonna enjoy my ending now (unless that last sidequest doesn't appear after the final boss, then I'll have to do it all over again).

Just downloaded the game, any super crucial things that I should know first (like doing a certain route before the others) or can I just go in full blind?

Blind is perfectly fine. F5 brings up the quest list. I don't think the game tells you that anywhere.

Hey, that's me. Only I called Janice Jean there.

Nothing changed, really, but now that I think about it, Shiki>Natalie>Lavie>Mel makes a bit more sense grouped together as an "outside world" arc as Janice is much more focused on the "inside" issue of Soul Eaters.

So I'd change that to Dora>Janice>Shiki>Natalie>Lavie>Mel.

>Only I called Janice Jean there.
Oh yeah, what was up with that? Is that her name from an older translation, or did you just have a brainfart?

Just a brainfart, nothing more.
