It's a lot like real life, with highschool. You make all these great friends, build them up slowly -- maybe people you've known forever, really. New people. Whatever. People from your town. You don't necessarily LIKE them but you get to know them, consider some friends, some more than others.

Then you go to college, never see them again, and don't give a shit.

I have a question. There used to be an item at the pharmacy for restoring SP. It's not there anymore. Any ideas where to get some?
Oh yeah. Started yesterday, finished exams now.
Love it!

You mainly get SP restoring items from finding them. I've never used one yet, as I always just go back to the first floor and that automatically refills the HP and SP bar of the party members.

Another store will open in the summer, I'm pretty sure, where you exchange jewels/stones(like topaz, emerald, etc.) for items, and there are a couple SP-restoring items.

I never bothered with that store except to

I just don't know whether I'm supposed to be clearing every floor or rushing to the top.

And with the points where you can go back and forth between the first floor and the most current tower level getting sparser and sparser (first it was every five floors - now it's every twenty!) I feel like I'm either:

a) rushing through, not levelling up and barely exploring - which I kind of thought was the purpose of the game

b) going up a couple of levels, fighting all the monsters, running out of SP, going back downstairs to refresh my stats, and starting all over again at the same floor I started at before. Which feels like I'm wasting time and retreading old ground because I'm doing the same floors over again.

And I don't know which is the right way of going about things.

Well, sometimes you can find rare treasures, but aside from the top floors, these rare items will probably be outdated once better equipment comes along.

There isn't really much to explore. That's one of this games biggest flaws. Once you get to the top, there isn't much to do aside from the SLinks which can get monotenous.

Lard, do letter A first, in my opinion. Just rush up 12-15 floors, and get activate the teleporter/transporter that links you to the first floor.

EX: Say you're on floor 135, and that's highest level you can transport to. What I'm saying is get up to floor 146 as fast as possible, without retreating back to the first floor. Then activate the transporter on floor 146, take it back to the 1st floor and replenish the HP and SP bars. Now, you can either start back from 135 and level up, or go back to 146 and try fighting the boss on that floor.

Really, once you get to a certain point in the game, you can fly through 25 or so floors in one night without fatiguing your characters, but then that leaves you a whole month with nothing new to explore.

Yeah, I totally agree with dalucifer. If you can manage to beat a boss by rushing through the floors below it, then that's a pretty good indicator that you're doing fine on leveling up and whatnot. If you need to train, then do it, but know you will always be able to instantly warp back up to the boss room once you're good and ready.

Don't you think that's a good thing? As much as I love the battle system, the stuff that takes place outside of the Tartarus is plent more exciting than dungeon exploration. I'd rather explore the personalities of the NPCs than the Tartarus, you know? :P

@Bernhardt - 262, not counting the tippy top where the final boss resides. It's freakin' massive...

I'll give it a whirl, thanks for the advice.

Does a new part of Tartarus only open up every month or does it just depend on how far you've gotten in the tower?

I agree, but it was nice to build up specific persona later in the game if you liked them without them being too gimped.

I don't really have anything to add except I really love this game. But it's pretty long. That's ok in a way, since the game rocks. I just wish the music in Tartarus would have been more varied, it's basically always the same track slightly remixed. Also, thank god for Virtue! A good persona for getting rid of instant game overs. About that, I hate that Yukari or whoever with Recarm automatically revives a death character, except you!! Ugh >_<

Instant deaths were mostly never an issue, I had plenty of homunculi.

I would have to say that this is the easiest game of all the SMT games released for PS2, in terms of bosses and not dying one shot deaths.

I'm only in July in Persona 3 though, so maybe it gets harder.
