The second stratum boss is giving me plenty of trouble. Well, all Etrian Odyssey bosses can be problematic, but I'm struggling with this one more than usual. My party are all at level 30, and I think that I'll need to grind a few more levels before I have any chance of defeating it. Maybe I'll see whether I can defeat the monkey FOEs yet, perhaps their materials can be crafted into something that'll help.

@crimsontadpoles I totally forgot what that boss was. Refresh my memory? I do know I barely beat it as one or 2 more turns and my party would've been wiped out.

@Spoony_Tech It's the Hippogryth in Jagged Reach. My problem is when it does a powerful Sky Dive that hurts my entire party, then defends and heals for several turns.

It heals too much health for me, so I'll need to come back later once I can deal more damage to it. Plus I could do with bringing TP restoring items to the battle, and perhaps getting lucky with binding it.

I suggest you try using skills that place status effects on your enemies. You may also want to use an item or skill to see its stats.

I have a question for the veterans of this series:
I've never played a full game before, I tried the IV demo but couldn't do much in it (with only 3 uses), then I recently tried the V demo and I'm really liking it!
Considering the big difference in price (10€ for IV vs 50€ for V), which one would you recommend me?

V is slightly better, but if price is a consideration, I'd get IV instead. Both are absolutely brilliant. As others have said, IV features an overworld you traverse in an airship, which does cause a few problems here and there. I'd still say that, before V came along, IV was the best RPG on 3DS.

That's the fight you need Panic resist for (Goat Earrings, if I recall correctly), so you need the rest of your armour to make up for the weakness of wearing an accessory. Definitely get the drops from absolutely every non-boss you've encountered so far, including the FOEs.

The Hippogryph is weak to Volt and susceptible to Head Bind, so definitely have a Warlock with Lightning. For front row, I had a Pugilist, Harbinger and Masurao.

Atlus held an Etrian Odyssey 10th Anniversary Closing Talk Show in Japan today, where it confirmed that it will announce its new Etrian Odyssey title for 3DS in spring 2018.

The new Etrian Odyssey title was first confirmed back in September. At the time, series director Shigeo Komori said it would be a ‘festival-like’ culmination of the series. At the event today, Komori said that it will not be Etrian Odyssey 3 Untold, but rather a “true culmination” with “map drawing to the point that it’s unpleasant” (this was likely a joking way to say it has a lot of map drawing), and “completely unexpected content.”

More Etrian Odyssey for 3DS, which is nice. I'm surprised it's not Untold 3, though.

@Ralizah The core fans will buy it for sure but at what point will they be missing a huge opportunity to make this for the Switch? I can see my 3ds just sitting there till this comes out and maybe even then not really wanting to pick it up and play it.

I haven't even touched this game since the beginning of November when the Switch gaming blitz hit and I can't see me going back anytime soon and that sad to say as while I dont think it's as good as 4 it's still Etrian at its core!

@Spoony_Tech Etrian Odyssey isn't a good match for the Switch thanks to its lack of a second screen, though. I'd honestly be pretty happy if they just kept making Etrian games for 3DS, although I think they've said this is the last EO game on the 3DS. Maybe period, considering this is a "festival-like culmination of the series."

If it comes to the Switch, it's going to have to be pretty radically changed, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. The mapping is the core distinguishing feature of this series in comparison to other modern first-person gridders.

It will feature map drawing in multi-layered 3D Escher-like dungeons.

It'll be true innovation.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

I can't wait for that. It sounds exciting. I still have to buy this game though.

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Stories, Crystal and Ultra Sun.

Atlus doesn't put it's games on sale quite as often now, so I used my Christmas eShop cards to buy this and one other game on sale... And wow, I open up this game, ready to start over again after deleting the demo a long time ago.

Much to my surprise... The file from the demo was just there, waiting for me!

I did not expect the file to remain. At all. That's so nice.

Edit: tfw when you're not sure if you can deal with the easiest FOE and Jenetta forces you to fight a worse one. We won, so it was nice. But still, Jenetta! How did you even survive in the 3rd floor by yourself!?

Reviving this thread again.

I've been playing some more, right now I'm in the 8th floor, and the guild card events are happening more often, so I was wondering if some of you had QR codes of your guild cards to share.

Don't want to finish the game and only see the default premade npc appear a hundred times.

Yeah I don’t know either.

@SMEXIZELDAMAN oh absolutely!

I don't have the means to post the original picture itself right now, but I hope this good old picture of the screen will suffice.

@crimsontadpoles awesome thanks. My file is still a bit early in the game, last time I played I was getting done with the second stratum. I'll scan your card~

Aww then that means yours won't work on mine either

Why would they even region lock something like this.

@crimsontadpoles How do I get a beautiful picture of the screen like you did?

@SMEXIZELDAMAN Head to the inn, select Guild Card, Manage Guild Cards, select your card, press A for edit, then select QR Code Output. Then it'll save the beautiful picture to the SD card. Then you'll have to put the SD card in a computer and retrieve the image.

Shame Miiverse is no more, that used to make screenshots much easier.
