Strength is needed to consistently deal 99,999 damage with the celestial weapons. Luck is needed to hit the highly evasive Dark Aeons. (accuracy is secondary due to the weird nature of luck in the game).


Defense and Magic Defense are needed to survive the enemy attacks, and Agility is needed to be able to get your turns.

Why not Max HP?

Not all stats are important to defeat the end game bosses. It is highly advisable to not farm HP spheres and break the HP limit . Upgrading your Hp will make your healing weaker as most healing options can only heal up to 9999 causing the Celestial weapons to deal less damage.
