Trumpeter is located in the hallway leading to the ticketing barrier gates in Yurakucho Station.
|None, but both Phys and Magic attacks can go a long way|
Trumpeter does not have any elemental weakness, however, using both Phys and Magic attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Attacks||Almighty, Evil Melody, Fire, Ice, Force, Elec|
|Void||Light, Dark, Ailments|
|Support||Holy Melody, Dekaja, Makakaja|
Trumpeter utilizes multi-target Almighty, Fire, Ice, Force, and Elec attacks. Likewise, it uses Evil Melody, an attack that guarantees 100% instakill on an enemy, take note that Trumpeter will mostly use this instakill on your character that has the lowest HP.
Trumpeter can void Light, Dark, and Ailment skills, so never use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn. It also has three support skills including Holy Melody which restores full HP and MP to Trumpeter, Dekaja, and Makakaja.
|Best Demons to Use|
|Dionysus||Red Rider||Black Rider|
Trumpeter uses Evil Melody, an attack that guarantees 100% instakill on an enemy. Trumpeter will mostly use this instakill on your character that has the lowest HP.
Your weakest demon in the party can serve as fodder. We recommend reviving and keeping this particular demon in the party while Demi-Fiend and the two other demons can still stay in the fight.
The longer this fight goes on, the more it favors Trumpeter as it has Holy Melody which restores full HP and MP to itself. You'll be using up more resources as this fight drags on, which is not always a good situation to be in.
We also recommend summoning demons that have the highest following stats: Mag, Vit, or Str.
Use Tarunda or War Cry to lower enemies' Phys/Magic Attacks. You will take less damage if you debuff their attacks. Use Rakunda to lower their defense, to make them more vulnerable to your attacks.
Alternatively, you can use Fog Breath or Sukunda as these debuffs will decrease their chance of dodging your attacks.
Trumpeter has Dekaja which negates all your party's buffs. It is fine to still buff yourself and your allies but don't overdo it or Trumpeter will simply cancel it out in a single turn.
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.
Trumpeter has no resistance against Phys Attacks, so don't hesitate to use all other types of Phys attacks on it.
Trumpeter can block Light, Dark, and Ailments, but get comfortable using other elemental skills as it cannot block or counter these.
Summon demons that have Dia, Media, or the skill's other variants, so your party can restore HP as you move along the battle. This will be ideal especially in situations wherein you have no available Recovery items on hand.
