Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 11

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 107.5 hours
  • Level 59

Continued progress through Heaven dungeon and encountered World Balance boss on Floor 7 (Level 57 main) – proved not to be too much of a challenge – no elemental weaknesses to take advantage of so mostly damaged with Physical attacks.  Caution is advised as this boss has the ability to one shot part members (400+ damage) with certain abilities.

Made it to Floor 10 and had a quick pop at the end of dungeon boss – taken down to 1/3 of his health then one-shotted the entire party :S  – thankfully I always Goho-M and save before attempting a boss so it was a simple matter to reload my game.  Took this as a sign I should drop my collected mats into the Blacksmith in town in order to purchase some new gear.  Grabbed some new armour (Oracle Gown for Yosuke) but not upgraded my weapons as I’m appreciating the abilities of some of them more than the straight damage increase (Yosuke’s Grilled Corn weapon which has a medium chance to inflict Silence being one).

Had another go at the boss with the new gear and a change round on some Accessories but got the same result (after a couple of phase changes) so decided to level a bit further before another attempt.  Started grinding from the bottom floor again and now at floor 4 once more.

I’ve not posted a playlog for a little while as I’ve been on holiday and internet connection has been poor so I’ve saved my updates for this one post…

I’ve been continuing my playthrough of Persona 4 and have made substantial progress in the game amassing over 40 hours of play during my time away so here’s a bit of a breakdown:

  • 28 – 29 July – Continued grinding levels and social links – nothing special
  • 30 July – Achieved the Persona Shopper and Special Fusion Expert trophies for fusing my first Persona using 4+ Personas
  • 31 July – Cleared the Void Quest Dungeon and got the Game Over trophy – some words of wisdom:
    • Steel Machines = wankers
    • Almighty Hands = also wankers
    • It’s worthwhile trying to level Social Link of your preferred team members to 7 prior to entering this dungeon so they gain the Survive Mortal Blow ability as both these mobs can pretty much single hit any party member if they feel like it
  • 01 Aug – Achieved the Movie Buff trophy
  • 02 Aug – Opened the Secret Lab dungeon and achieved the Going Nova trophy
  • 03 Aug – Cleared the Secret Lab dungeon (at Level 52) and got the Boarded-Up Lab trophy
    • This was the easiest of the dungeons cleared so far – total time estimated 4 – 8 hours
  • 04 Aug – Achieved the Special Lady trophy for starting a relationship with Chie
    • This was the first female Social Link I’d got to this stage but I’d have gone for Chie anyway as Rise is too forward and Yukiko is too obvious a choice
  • 05 Aug – Gained A True Bond Trophy (finally maxing out the Chie Social Link) and the Head of the Class trophy (coming first in the test – I thought I’d ballsed this up as I got one question wrong but that didn’t seem to matter)
  • 06 AugIt’s Working Today trophy
    • How can I get so far through the game without having tried one of the Capsule machines on a rainy day *facepalm*
  • 07 Aug – Only got an hour in this evening but am currently on floor 4 in the Heaven dungeon

Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 9

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 63 hours
  • Level 35

Picked up the Janitors Outfit for The Cleaning Clubs Passion quest and continued to work on some of the Social links whilst unable to further investigate.

Improved core Social Links and unlocked The Lovers and The Devil Social Links through Rise and my job as a janitor at the hospital respectively.  In addition to this I picked up the current book releases and got the job folding Origami cranes to boost my Understanding – I need this to complete the Shy Girl Ema Quest from the Fox.

Summer break has arrived along with a challenge from the suspect to catch him in the TV World so am currently trying to pull together some information on him to allow me to attempt the next dungeon 😀

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 62 hours
  • Level 35

Due to the investigation being stalled at present there’s not much for me to do except continue to build Social Links or grind the dungeons.  I took this opportunity to go back to Yukiko’s and Kanji’s dungeons to defeat the Contrarian King and Intolerant Officer – having previously re-cleared the dungeons up to the boss rooms these were fairly quick and easy kills at Level 33.

In addition to returning to these dungeons I took the opportunity to grind the Marukuyu Striptease dungeon in search of Silver Dice as I’d previously sold the quest material drops before turning them in – DOH!  Several lucky Treasure Hand spawns gifted me with a significant XP Boost during this process so I managed to come out at Level 35 by the time I’d got to floor 6.

A while ago I picked up The Cleaning Clubs Passion quest which required me to get the Janitor’s outfit – unfortunately they store in Okina city won’t sell you this until you take the hospital janitors job and in order to take that you need to boost your Diligence to level 3 or greater.  I was at level 2 when I decided to take this job so spent a couple of nights folding envelopes to gain that extra level – I’ve just completed my first night so am planning on heading to Okina to grab the outfit.

Summer break is coming up in the game so I’m expecting the story to progress more once I get there.

Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 7

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 59.5 hours
  • Level 33

Not much happening today, as I rescued Rise quite early the dungeons were closed to me for some time so I focused on boosting Social Links, reading books and eating at Aiya to boost multiple stats (especially on those rainy days).

Rise and Teddy joined the team and The Nose granted the ability to fuse using 4 or more Persona’s so there’s some interesting experimentation to do there.

Current date in game 12th July

Persona 4 Golden (Vita) – Playlog 6

  • Difficulty – Very Hard
  • Current Playtime – 57.5 hours
  • Level 33
  • Achievements earned –
    • The Nose Doesn’t Always Know
    • The Lounge is Closed

Back to Dungeon 3 and I decided to start grinding from the first floor again to build up a few more levels – during this process I played around with fusing some persona’s and managed to luck into the ‘The Nose Doesn’t Always Know’ achievement for experiencing a fusion accident.  I can’t remember what I was aiming for but I got an Oni which had some nice physical attack skills so I wasn’t complaining 🙂

I continued through Dungeon 3 and managed to reach the 11th floor and the boss room with very little difficulty.  By this time it was getting pretty late in real life (around midnight on a Sunday) but based on the difficulty of previous bosses I decided to take a peek.

Spoiler alert!
