Fourth Kalpa General Tips

Equip your team with Null Death

Beelzebub will use a special attack called Death Flies. This skill kills anyone without death immunity, including the Demi-fiend.

Equip Magatama that can Null either Light or Dark. Also, bring demons with immunities to either light or dark. Check out our Magatama list to know which ones have this resistance.

List of Magatama

Float Balls do not Negate Cursed Corridor Damage

The type of floor damage Cursed Corridors inflict cannot be prevented using float balls.

Instead, bring lots of HP Recvovery items and demons with appropriate healing spells like Mediarama and Diarama

Use Estoma Excessively

Estoma reduces the encounter rate until a new Kagutsuchi. Bring a demon with this skill and use it excessively especially when traversing cursed sections of the Kalpa.

High level demons roam these cursed halls, it would be unwise to combat them at any condition other than full.
