This is a guide to the Magic (Mag) Stat in Shin Megami Tensei III HD Remaster (SMT Nocturne) for the Switch, PS4, and Steam! Read on to learn what is Magic, what is the effect of Magic, and should you raise your Magic stat.
List of Contents
The Magic stat raises the Demi-Fiend's MP by a certain amount. While MP automatically increases after every level up, an additional point in Magic will add even more.
The Magic stat also increases the damage of magic attacks. A higher stat means more magic damage done.
The Magic stat can be raised by spending skill points when the Demi-Fiend levels up. Sometimes, when a magatama acts violently during a level up, it can even grant you a random bonus stat point!
Magatama each give different boosts to the Demi-Fiend's stats. Swapping equipped magatama can raise the Mag stat when certain ones are equipped. For example, the Shiranui Magatama gives a +5 bonus to Mag.
Stats can also be permanently raised outside of leveling-up by using an item called Incense.
Incense, when consumed, grants 1 extra point to their associated stat. For example, Magic Incense raises Mag. by 1.
Incenses can be obtained from shops by getting 10 lucky tickets and availing the box prizes from the junk shop!
The reason for this is that while there are very good magic spells in the game that do good damage, they will always be limited by MP usage.
MP Recovery items are hard to come by in SMT3, and maintaining a magic build is tedious, especially when demons also need their MP managed.
