Yaksini is weak towards Elec and will be highly susceptible to Elec attacks. Exploit this weakness as much as you can!
|Void||Force, Light, Nerve, and Mind|
Yaksini uses Force attacks. It will use both single-target and multi-target Force attacks, so don't summon demons that have Force weakness!
Likewise, Yaksini Voids Force, Light, Nerve, and Mind attacks, and Resists Curse. We suggest avoiding using these types of attacks as they will be useless against Yaksini.
|Best Demons to Use|
Use Tarunda or War Cry to lower its Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff its attacks.
Use Rakunda to lower Yaksini’s defense, in order to make it more vulnerable to your attacks. Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease Yaksini’s chance of dodging your attacks.
Use a buff like Focus or Tarukaja before using a Phys attack. This allows you to maximize your Phys Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.
Use a buff like Makakaja before using a Magic skill. This allows you to maximize your Magic Attack's damage output in the short turns you get.
Yaksini has no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to to use these types of attacks on it.
Yaksini has resistance against Force, Light, Nerve, Mind, and Curse attacks, but be comfortable using other elemental Magic attacks, especially Elec as this is Yaksini's weakness.
Yaksini relies on Force attacks, and equipping Hifumi will enable Demi-Fiend to Null Force. Likewise, bring along demons that can Block Fire.
You'll be able to cut off Yaksini's turns if you block its attacks.
As Yaksini's weakness is Elec, bring Demons that have Lightning attacks to exploit its weakness. This way, you'll damage Yaksini further and secure extra turns for your party.
Yaksini utilizes Force attacks. It will use both single-target or multi-target Force attacks, so don't summon demons that have Force weakness!
Summon demons that have Dia or Media so your party can restore HP as you move along battle. This will be ideal especially in situations wherein you have no available Recovery items on hand.
