End RushSeptember 7, 2009
Julian came over and was all excited to have me finish Persona 3. Until he saw how weak my personas were, and how few minerals I had for buying cards. Now I’m running around lower Tartaros blocks, with enemies fleeing in fear, while I look for rare items to bring to Elizabeth in exchange for cards.
New strategy: go to the arcade every afternoon and every night, to try to get my persona’s stats up. Rush through to the end of the game, ignoring any more commus. I hate turning people down, especially Aegis, but I don’t think I’m going to fuse any new personas. I will keep a save 2 weeks before the end, though, in case this plan fails.
Hmm, going to the arcade doesn’t seem to give me an opportunity to increase my persona’s defense. If I want to use Norn in the final battle, I’m going to have to get those cards.
Some people are saying that enemies on Block 2 drop Onyxes, but I’m barely getting any drops at all, let alone that one.
Whoa… I leveled up Norn, and she gained Absorb Lightning. That was the only weakness she had; now she is pretty unstoppable! Her defense is still 42, though… :
Okay, broke 90 hours, and reached the final day of the game. It feels funny, among all of the foreboding atmosphere, to be spending all of my time in the arcade.
