This Troll isn't letting you escape with all of Loki's treasures. Time to play Mind games with this Troll.
|List of Boss Weaknesses|
This big boss in the lounge will utilize Ice attacks. And, yes, it will absorb your Ice attacks, so don't summon Ice attack-reliant demons to your party! While Mind skills do not necessarily inflict damage, exploiting Troll's weakness towards it will offer you more turns.
We highly suggest equipping Wadatsumi Magatama to Demi-Fiend so he'll be able to block Ice attacks, likewise, bringing along other demons that can block Ice is a sound decision.
Matador challenges you to a duel to determine who is truly worthy of the Menorah. Use every skill at your disposal to get through this very tough boss.
|List of Boss Weaknesses|
|None, but Phys attacks can go a long way in damaging Matador.|
Matador gets two turns, and more often than not, he will always buff himself before striking. Buff your party by increasing your defense and offense.
He utilizes Force and Phys attacks, and drains Force attacks. We highly suggest equipping Hifumi Magatama to block Force, and to bring along demons that can block Force.
Ankh can be purchased at the Junk Shop in the Great Underpass of Ginza.
Hifumi can be purchased at the Junk Shop in the Great Underpass of Ginza.
Kamudo can be purchased at the Junk Shop in the Great Underpass of Ginza.
