Demo Tips

Pick Up the Clothespin in 2nd floor of Salvano's Gaming Hall and the chest in the Ruins

Clothespin at the bar's 2nd floor. Clothespin at the Ruins.

Clothespin is an accessory that provides immunity to sleep. The first boss that you'll encounter will be using revenge abilities against your casters and will put them to sleep, potentially cancelling brave actions and wasting any BP you used.

Purchase a Star Pendant, a White Veil, and a Silver Glass

After the Sandswept Ruins, you'll head to a dungeon and fight against enemies that can inflict poison. The boss of the area can also inflict poison, silence, and blind status effects.

Do Not Engage the Mushussu Immediately

The Mushussu is a tougher enemy than the regular story bosses you'll encounter. While you should be well-prepared before facing it, it is possible to defeat it.
