This is a guide to Thor (2nd Encounter), a boss in Shin Megami Tensei III HD Remaster (SMT Nocturne) for the Nintendo Switch, Steam, and PS4. Read on to know how to beat Thor, Thor's weaknesses, and best strategies against this boss!
|How to Beat Thor (1st Encounter)||How to Beat Thor (2nd Encounter)||How to Fuse Thor|
|Recommended Magatama||Adama or Narukami|
|Recommended Level||80 or higher|
|None, but Phys and Magic attacks can go a long way|
Thor does not have any elemental weakness, however, using either boosted Phys or Magic attacks is useful for dealing damage.
|Reflect||Elec and Light|
|Void||Dark, Nerve, and Mind|
|Support||Tarukaja, Focus, Makakaja, Dekunda, Dekaja, Dragon Eye|
Thor utilizes both single-target and multi-target Elec attacks, and single-target Phys attacks. We recommend bringing along demons that can block these types of attacks.
Thor reflects Elec and Light, and resists Dark, Nerve, and Mind, so don't use these skills as you'll only be wasting your turn.
|Best Demons to Use|
Thor will have a default Phys attack chain after it uses Dragon Eye. We suggest using Tetrakarn or Attack Mirror to reflect the massive damage that Thor will inflict. We also suggest summoning demons that can Block/Drain Phys as an alternative.
The Phys attack chain is as follows:
Dragon Eye ➡ Tarukaja ➡ Focus ➡ Phys.
You may obtain an Attack Mirror at Rag's Jewelry Shop.
Thor will have a default Elec attack chain after it uses Dragon Eye. We suggest using Makarakarn or Magic Mirror to reflect the heavy damage that Thor will inflict. We also suggest summoning demons that can Block/Drain Elec as an alternative.
The Elec attack chain is as follows:
Dragon Eye ➡ Makakaja ➡ Elec.
Thor has a high chance of dodging your attacks in this fight. We highly recommend using Debilitate on Thor to lower its Attack/Defense/Evasion/Hit Rate all in a single turn.
Passive counterattack skills such as Avenge, Counter, or Retaliate will come in handy as you can perform a heavy counterattack (more so if you have stacked Tarukaja) on Thor if it decides to use a Phys attack on you. Deal as much damage as you can in any way.
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.
Likewise, we recommend stacking the buff skill until it has reached its limit.
Summon a demon that has Prayer, Mediarahan, or Mediarama, 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.
