This is Game8's Best Skills guide for Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster (SMT Nocturne). Read on to know the best physical skills, the best magical skills, and the best skills for the Demi-Fiend!
List of Contents
The Skills listed below are skills we consider to be essential or highly useful to players of any build and roster.
|Sacrifice *||Mighty Gust||Blight|
|Javelin Rain||Divine Shot||Hell Thrust|
|Hell Fang||Tempest||Gaea Rage|
|Iron Claw||Blight||Hades Blast|
|Mahamaon *||Mamudoon *||God's Bow|
|Wind Cutter *||Prominence||Megidolaon|
|Preach *||Radiance||Evil Melody *|
|Beast Roar||Magma Axis||Hell Exhaust|
Mahamaon and Mamudoon are great one turn enemy team wipers (provided that the enemies are non-resistant to Light or Dark). They are niche solutions, but are also devastating in those niche situations.
Preach is a Mind damage attack against the whole enemy party. Not only is Mind resistance a bit uncommon, but the chance for Ailment effects is a sweet bonus.
Wind Cutter is an extremely devastating skill. We highly recommend it, from mid-game to late-game, as there are not many Bosses that negate Force. This skill, paired up with Force Boost, makes quick work of many bosses.
Evil Melody can become a best skill in dungeons with enemies with high VIT and high resistances. With a mana cost of 1 MP, this gimmicky skill can become very useful on specific situations.
|Tetraja *||War Cry||Fog Breath|
Focus is a perfect skill for Demons with a high STR stat, including yourself. You can use this skill for one strong Phys Demon, then make your other Demons buff your damage even further or weaken the enemy to kill them in one hit.
|Life Surge||Mana Surge||Null: Light *|
|Null: Dark||Null: Curse *||Phys Drain|
|Might||Dark Might *||Life Refill *|
|Mana Refill *||Watchful||Counter|
|Drain Attack *||Victory Cry||Pierce|
Dark Might is a great Skill to have against Boss Battle Demons. Just run around and wait for a New Kagutsuchi then enter the fight, assured critical hits for Demons who have this skill equipped.
|Analyze *||Beseech *||Detain *|
|Wine Party||Charisma||Me Patra|
|Posumudi *||Recarmdra||Media *|
|Prayer||Estoma *||Riberama *|
|Liftoma *||Jive Talk|
Analyze might be a basic skill, but many players forget it's essential for exploiting the bonuses of the Press Turn Battle System. It also gives you a reading on how to easily defeat a demon and avoid damage.
Beseech is one of many negotiation skills available, what makes it part of this list is because of how early it can be learned and be inherited.
Detain might look like it's just eating skill space, but when you find a demon you really want to recruit, then just goes away after swindling you of precious Macca and Items, the necessity of this skill becomes more apparent.
Posumudi is essential for curing poisoned Physical fighers, since it halves the damage they deal while killing them slowly.
