Electric Showdown: Unleashing Thunder and Tactical Triumphs in Persona 3 Reload!

Attention, Persona 3 Reload players! Prepare yourselves for an electrifying encounter as we delve into the Full Moon boss battle in September. Our mission? To take down the formidable Arcana Hermit, a super-charged Shadow with a shocking affinity for electrical mayhem. This battle will test your skills, your strategy, and your ability to withstand a massive surge of damage. So, let's dive into the electrifying details you need to know to emerge victorious against this formidable foe!

Now, before we proceed, fair warning: this guide contains spoilers for the September Full Moon battle in Persona 3 Reload. If you haven't reached this point in the game yet, consider this your last chance to turn back. Still with us? Excellent! Let's shock our way to victory!

When assembling your party for the battle against Arcana Hermit, it's crucial to remember one thing: this Shadow has a shocking affinity for electricity. So, leave behind Yukari and Aigis, as their weakness to electricity will only make matters worse. You'll need to bring your own healing Personas and be prepared to take on the role of the team's healer. But fear not, Ken will lend a helping hand with some buffs to keep you on your toes.

Now, let's talk offense. The Shadow is immune to electric, wind, and light damage, so it's time to bring out the heavy hitters. Focus on physical moves, utilizing the strength of the dynamic duo, Akihiko, and Shinjiro. These two powerhouses will deliver blows that'll make Arcana Hermit's circuits sizzle!

Our journey begins with a twist—a kidnapping! Chidori snatches poor Junpei, mistaking him for the leader of SEES. Irritated and determined, our group heads to Paulownia Mall to track a signal picked up by Fuuka. She senses underground cables that lead them to Club Escapade's basement, where they encounter the Shadow entangled in the power supply cables.

The initial stages of the battle are straightforward, but soon enough, Hermit starts to charge itself using the club's power source. This dangerous boost aims to unleash a devastating blow on your team. Your mission? Interrupt the charging process by attacking Hermit while it's still charging. Prevent that surge of power, and you'll save your team from a shocking fate.

In the unfortunate event that Hermit completes its charge, prepare for a jolt. The Mega Spark and Tera Spark moves will electrify your entire party, leaving them stunned and reeling. To minimize the damage, call for a team block and hope for the best!

Keep a close eye on your Theurgy gauges, as they'll charge rapidly during this intense battle. Shinjiro's gauge fills quickly when he's below half HP, thanks to his move pool filled with HP-based moves. On the other hand, Ken thrives when his SP is below half, which will happen frequently as he supports the team with healing and buffs.

With Arcana Hermit boasting a substantial HP pool, it's time to play dirty. Make use of buffs and debuffs liberally to weaken this powerful Shadow. And don't forget the power of Theurgy! Unleash your charged attacks as soon as they're ready, as there's no second chance in this battle. The perfect moment to strike is the moment you're charged!

Remember to focus your strongest attacks on Hermit while it's charging, preventing it from using its most devastating moves. With a well-executed strategy, you'll soon emerge victorious, claiming your hard-earned EXP and the coveted Hermit Major Arcana card for future Shuffle Time draws.

And there you have it, brave Persona 3 Reload warriors! Prepare yourselves for an electrifying battle against Arcana Hermit. Sharpen your skills, harness your inner lightning, and show this super-charged Shadow who's boss. May the sparks of victory fly in your favor!
