Persona 3 Reload is the remake of the original Persona 3 game. The Persona series is one that generations of gamers remember as one of the first that made an entire genre popular. In this case, Persona 3 Reload borrows a lot from Persona 3 and this makes it a very fun and enjoyable RPG to play. If you enjoy RPGs, you will likely like this game. The main hurdle many people have in this game, however, is the mechanics. That said, if you are wondering what the strategy behind defeating Nyx in-game is, consider reading this guide until the end. Here, we are going to very simply put down the various requirements and the META characters to pick for this boss fight.
Persona 3 Reload: How to beat/defeat Nyx?
Nyx is the final boss of the game. He is also the hardest boss to beat when you play the game. In order to beat him, you are going to have to put everything you know and have learned about this game to use. He has no weaknesses, has over 10 different modes, requires multiple attacks, heals, and counters to beat, and tests the mechanical skills you have mastered through the game.
What do you need?
Here are the basics:
- You need to be level 80 or above (preferably).
- You need to have the strongest attacks for your characters unlocked before you battle Nyx.
- You need these party members: Protagonist (default), Aegis (buff), Yukari (healer), and Mitsuru.
Once you have these requirements set, you can head out to tackle the boss itself.
So, Nyx will use her 14 Arcanas throughout the battle. He has no weaknesses, so make sure to use the characters to buff yourself, debuff the boss, and heal throughout. Each time her health drops below 10%, Nyx will change her arcana. Each Arcana corresponds roughly to a type of elemental attack; you can see them here.
- Fool – no specific element
- Magician – fire
- Priestess – ice
- Empress – wind
- Emperor – electric
- Hierophant – pierce and almightly
- Lovers – almighty
- Chariot – strike
- Justice – insta-light attacks (dangerous)
- Hermit – inflict aliments (increased chance)
- Fortune – nullify all elemental attacks except almighty
- Strength – almighty or slash (plus lowers everyone’s defence)
- Hanged Man – two insta-kill attacks (very dangerous)
- Death – resist all attacks except the Almighty (higher health bar).
Keeping these in mind, you will need to plan out your defences, attacks, and moves very carefully. Going into this battle without enough preparation is a death wish because Nyx will wipe you out with how hard the boss is.
Any other advice?
Before you go into this battle, make sure to take your party and practice their moves on other similarly leveled bosses. This will not only teach you how to play them but also give you an understanding of their weaknesses. You can then plan your defense around this information and make sure that you don’t lose when you fight Nyx. Also, keep in mind that the boss fight is quite long, not a short one. You are going to have to stay focused and keep your head in the game throughout to make sure you can adapt and counter the boss. Once you do this, you will certainly win this fight.
