Thanks to this system, it is possible to come up with all sorts of builds to take on the challenges ahead.
Here’s how to get the Anathema Magatama and all the skills it lets the Demi-Fiend learn once it is ingested.
How to get the Anathema Magatama in Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster
The Anathema Magatama is one of the advanced Magatama available in the game, so you will have to make some progress in the main campaign before being able to unlock it. To obtain this Magatama, you will have to defeat Ose in the lowest level of the Assembly of Nihilo. This is a mandatory boss battle, so you will get the Anathema Magatama no matter what.
The Anathema Magatama is a great Magatama to ingest if you’re thinking about creating a magic-focused build, as it grants a +8 bonus in Magic. This Magatama also provides a slight boost to other stats, giving a +2 in Vitality, and a +1 in Agility and Luck. Ingesting this Magatama will make you void Death attacks, but make you weak to Expel skills.
Letting this Magatama continue to act violently upon level up isn’t a very good choice, given the risks involved. If you do, you have the chance of either getting the entire party fully healed or get the Demi-Fiend cursed. If you’re far from any city, it can be a very annoying status ailment to deal with.
Here are all the skills you can learn by ingesting the Anathema Magatama.
- Mana Drain – Drain a small amunt of MP from one target.
- Anti Death – Passive – Grants resistance to Death attacks, but does not override innate weakness.
- Mamudo – 20% chance of killing all targets instanly.
- Evil Gaze – Small chance of dropping one target’s HP to 1.
- Mamudoon – 30% chance of killing all targets instantly.
