Little did they know that that 5 years later the crew would all become Nidhoggers

I understand it's a JRPG, but they really killed the climax of the game with the whole dungeon before the (supposed) finale. At some point, these games need to stop following the traditional JRPG formula; the combat/grinding process is not what makes this game good. I feel it actually detracts from it. /internetsoapbox

Particularly after Secret Base, which had no vocals and really shouldn't have been used in the game's most grind-oriented dungeon.

Between this ER and playing P3 twice and P4 once, I hear the velvet room music in my head pretty often.

Oh god, casting Diarahan 4 times in a row....the pain

Too bad the song keeps on restarting after every battle.

I never used Naoto much. Runs out of SP too fast.

"Y did they leave black frost in wtf.  ok never mind "

Having never played a persona game I prob would do the same thing as Black Frost is such a cool character and has good resistance and helps with getting back SP. When I played DQ monster joker on the DS I would keep guys in untill they were just too underlevel, did the same with WoW when I found an axe I loved the look of so I guess it just in some people that they grow attached to characters or items in games.

I know the endurance run is already over, but come on now.  Jeff and Vinny are fairly good at some aspects of this game but when it comes to fusing it's a hopless mess.  Thinking they have personas that they've never made, fusing randomly, not registering when they need to and registering when they shouldn't, and not paying attention to what skills they're carrying over.  Dang, guys I know you've got it in you.

Naoto's awesome. ^^ It's a shame that she's not so good against bosses, but oh well. I still think she's cool.

And wow, they're burning through SP like it's going out of style. Maybe try using more physicals against enemies that aren't strong against it? Though that would take longer, and that wouldn't be very fun. xP

Posted by Besetment

Why not use tempest slash if you don't like Naoto's spells? They're heavy physical. . .

Posted by Gamer_152

An interesting dungeon but I think I share the same view as Jeff and Vinny, that the dungeon combat is braking up the story experience. Still, it's cool to see them in combat with all their new stuff and Naoto in play.

It is more shame on me because in my first and second playthrough,I did not realize about an existence of a persona called "Yoshitsune",which makes every enemy and boss become jokes even when I play solo throughout the whole third playthrough.Once I had Yoshitsune,I left all other personae like plague.

Naoto had physical, remember that.

Er, no she's not. Her physical skills are pretty good, but unlike Chie and Kanji she has nothing to buff herself up to make them hit really hard, nor does she have particularly high strength. She will never hit as hard as a power charged Chie with Rainy Death/God's Hand, or a (Ma)Tarukaja'd Kanji with Primal Force. "

This.  Naoto's physicals are only meant to supplement her SP extensive abilities.  Hell...even Yosuke gets Brave Blade later and that's tons better than Blight or Tempest Slash -_-
Posted by xDot

You should put the patient collar on yourself and the Mage's Mark on Naoto then she wont run out of SP so quickly, and use Megidola more rather than always using the light and dark instant kills.

Also this isn't the last dungeon (maybe) so don't be using all your items and eerything at the end!

hell yea, go for it. 1 day dungeon clear.

Posted by TobyD81

Hey, instead of paying fox you could swap in Teddie, Kanji, or Chie. You can progress a little more and stack levels without spending as much cash.

Posted by ChibiSoma

No no. You DO get to keep using a guy if you get a Weak to light/dark. If Naoto tags one, she'll get another turn to do it again.

And yeah, as others have said - her Physical attacks are no joke. So any time you don't want to hit something that's weak to light or darkness (and you DO want someone who can throw those now), just bash their heads in. She gets Blight and just TEARS through guys. She's your new Chie/Kanji for Physical stuff. Superior to BOTH.

I did find Tam Lin fairly useful in this dungeon. The auto-makamakamakamak thing he has seemed to cut damage a lot, and then he learns repel phys...etc. But Black Frost has made it so far......

Edited by kagekage

this endurance run has convinced me to get persona4. thank you jeff and vinny!
and don't switch naoto out!

Posted by Jimbo7676

I'm surprised you never used Tam Lin after all that work to fuse him. Also you never once used any of Naoto's physical attacks which seem to be her strong suit.

He is not better than Tam Lin and Black Frost.He is THE BEST.
Posted by Undeadpool

Ya know...just because you're not giving away specific plotpoints, "expect the unexpected" et al are STILL SPOILERS. So cut it out! I've beaten the game twice, and the first time I nearly got the "true ending" without using a walk-through, so it's not impossible. Let 'em play the game and continue to entertain us in whatever way they think is going to give us the most entertainment.
So far they've been pretty on the money with what they think will amuse us, so maybe trust them a little?

Posted by ArmedDragoon

Just wait till you guys get Naoto's affect-all spells along with the appropriate boosts. You will never have to worry about random encounters ever again.

@DukeTogo:  That they're tired?
Posted by Konanda

Really should put mage's mark on Naoto as she needs the SP if you are going to continue to use her (which you should) and you should really not put Chie in her magic is terrible she has very little SP the only useful skills of hers are physical and galatic punt and seeing how little you use physical skills (you never even tried Naoto's) Chie's just empty space in the A team. Although I guess it serves the purpose to stifle Jeff's whining as he imagines getting stomped on by Chie with 10" stilletos.

Posted by DukeTogo

The fact you're yawning through it says a lot about the game.

Posted by Zeik

I find it kind of funny how they were complaining about Naoto blowing through SP when she had more SP left at that point than both Yosuke and Yukiko, even though that is actually a problem for her.

Right now Naoto would actually do better on the team than Chie, since Chie's skills are pretty lacking at this point in the game. Though ignoring her would mean it would take even longer for her to get her good skills. I'd like to see a little more time with Naoto anyway though, since she doesn't get enough appreciation.

i would recommend keeping Naoto in the party, she does learn light to all, and dark to all.

you should use tam lin and if u havent noticed, cerberus has maragidyne

Posted by firehawk12

Hopefully someone lets them know how to avoid the bad ending when it comes.  I'd hate for the Endurance run to end like that.

Posted by RabidSquirrel89

Man. I was hoping you guys would at least try Naoto's physical abilities once. Physical abilities are so underrated in this game. Using SP generally will drop enemies faster but using physical abilities will increase the duration you can spend in the dungeon. It's something I didn't really figure out until my second play through. Also, with those physical to all abilities, if even one of those criticals then the party member gets another turn. So there's still the potential for good damage.

Keep Naoto in the party so you can get Mahamaon and Mamudoon.
