List of Contents
|Recommended Level||70 or higher|
Black Frost is located in the room you've previously battled Mizuchi at Kabukicho Prison 5F.
|None, but Magic and Almighty attacks can go a long way|
Black Frost does not have any elemental weakness, however, using both Magic and Almighty attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Attacks||Ice, Dark, Phys|
|Reflect||Fire, Dark, Ailments|
Black Frost utilizes both single-target and multi-target Ice attacks, and multi-target Dark and Phys attacks. We recommend summoning demons that can block these attacks, especially Dark, as Black Frost pulls out its Dark attack randomly.
Black Frost reflects Fire, Dark, and Ailments skills, voids Light, absorbs Ice, and is highly resistant to Phys attacks, so don't use these types of attacks as you'll only be wasting your turn. Use Almighty skills and Magic attacks except for Fire, Dark, Ailments, Light, and Ice to deal damage.
The enemy also has a Support skill, Diarama, which greatly restores its HP.
|Best Demons to Use|
|White Rider||Red Rider||Black Rider|
The longer this fight goes on, the more it favors Black Frost, as it has Diarama which greatly restores its HP. 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 or Vit.
Black Frost can block Fire, Ice, Light, Dark, and Ailments, but get comfortable using other elemental skills as it cannot block or counter these.
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.
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.
