Just got this from the eshop. Beat the first Master and got Elena to eat its flesh. I'm just wondering if there's any tips a beginner should know before diving fully into this game. Just general tips for gameplay. No spoilers, please.
Personally, I'll sometimes spend a day with her after a dungeon.
Should I wait for her to wake up if she's sleeping? I gave her some meat and she went to bed. It gave me the option to wait for her to wake up but I figured that meant there was nothing else to say to her at that moment so I left.
I wrote some tips for beginners in another thread, so I'll just link it here:
It's written for beginners, so you don't have to worry about spoilers.
Thanks, that's super helpful. I feel sort of bad now because I did my first tower in one run and didn't get back until the circle gauge had like 10% on it. For some reason I thought I'd be good as long as I got back before I ran out of time completely. I guess I better be more careful now.
If she sleeps you should probably also get rest (to heal and such after giving meat). The timer stops ticking while not in the dungeon so there's no penalty for doing so aside from 3 seconds of "going to bed" animation. As a plus, when you wake up you can probably talk to her for more affinity. Talking to her when returning from the dungeon at opprotune moments (coming back, waking up, if she's doing something like cleaning / cooking / whatever) will make it easier to get more affinity (the alternative being spending tons of money/materials on gifts).
This was probably touched on in that other thread, but don't let the timer go down and transform her at all. It lowers your affinity and whatnot. I always keep one of those teleport items on hand, which will give me enough time to find a nice monster for fresh meat (if I have low quality meat on hand) and teleport back without risking taking too long. The fresher the meat, the longer the timer is replenished, and she can only eat every so often so meat freshness is semi-important (but you can still get away with lower quality meat, you don't need the best stuff).
Yeah, the gauge was red when I got back. That gold light that's usually on the side of the screen was dark and purple. Had to follow her, uh, trail down to the basement. She wasn't doing so well.
Is there a benefit to using the chain throw? I swear when I first tried it out I was swinging the monster around in circles before letting them fly. Now it just seems like I fling them up into the air and smack them back down again.
The chain throw is good for fighting multiple opponents. Swing them around for an AoE-like effect, or throw them into each other to do damage / interrupt some attacks or advances. You can also use it for positional advantage (like, you don't have time/hp to fight an enemy or a group of enemies, so you make an opening by throwing one to the side to get through and escape quickly.)
