The Violence Magatama

Gaea is one of the best, if not THE best, Physical damage Magatamas. Like Kamudo, it emphasizes brute strength and simple power to dominate battles. In a sense, it is a stronger version of Kamudo.

Aside from its whopping bonuses to STR and VIT, its skills are what makes it the perfect Physical violence Magatama.

Rage and Revenge

Attack All Sample.jpg

Gaea thrives in violence against multiple targets. Its skills, Gaea Rage and Deathbound, can easily clear out stronger enemies depending on your STR stat. It also gives you the sweet counter skill, Avenge. It's basically a stronger version of Counter.

What makes this Magatama sweet and perfect is its final learnable skill, Attack All. It's a passive skill that turns your normal Attacks target the whole enemy party.

Partnered with Kamudo's Focus skill, as well as a Tarunda from one of your other Demons, you can basically one punch a whole enemy party in three turns!

Weakness to Force/Light/Dark

Of course, no Magatama is perfect. Gaea is weak to Zan, Mudo, and Hama skills (and all other variants like Wind Cutter). This means you're also more susceptible to the one-hit kill magic of Dark and Light.

A good counter would be to either wipe the enemy team before they can make a move, or learn Null skills from other Magatama, like Hifumi's Null: Force.

Returning Damage

Since you hit hard, if an enemy has a Physical reflect skill similar to the effects of Attack Mirror, you might end up wiping YOUR team instead of theirs. Be careful against enemies of this type, Analyze will work to your benefit!
