So as you can see from my latest artwork, I've been playing Persona 3. I could not climb further Tartarus at the moment so I decided to grind on lower floors. And then suddenly, Fuuka started saying "Death draws near!"
I had no idea what was meant with Death draws near, until I saw on the map a shadow who was walking directly up to me. I was so scared, I ran for the access point, occasionally hitting walls as the map is not in the same direction of me walking.
The only thing that saved me is that my team was ordered to defeat any enemy they encounter.

I escaped my first reaper and ended up trying to find answers in total tears to this shadow on tumblr.

So basically he's there to kick my ass if I sit too long in one floor, if I get the card with the skull on it during shuffle time or when I get a shadow-free floor full of items.

This was utterly terrifying and I am scared to continue, even though I know how to mind the reaper and there's a reset button.

If you are asking why I did not battle it:
it's resistant to any kind of attack.

Oh my god really?

That's not even funny anymore, this is just creepy and evil???
Anyway I have the first version of P4, not the golden. So it doesn't have a reaper like that or...?

the first version of persona 4 does have the reaper, but on the second playthrough
so you're safe if you haven't played it yet!

p4g has the reaper on the first playthrough though ;_;

First time I got the reaper, I tried to kill it uwu;;
But yeah, if you get Fuuka saying 'Death draws near!' or such, you have to hightail it as fast as you can uwu;;

Exactly. Also I heard that walking up stairs to escape the reaper works no longer once you're at level 70?
Not sure how true this is, but I don't want to venture on that.

Level 70 is reaching towards being December or so in-game, and from my understanding, Reapers tend to be set after you later in the game in any Persona game, or at least 3 and 4.

uwu;; If what you've heard is true, just don't linger on one floor for long, aha

Oh I see.

Don't rush through Tartarus, you'll doom yourself uwu
The barriers are there for a reason uwu

Take your time- I usually have everyone split to defeat any shadows they can, and linger near the stairs so when Fuuka warns about the reaper, I can dash up and away uwu
Access points are also good to keep an eye on, sometimes better than stairs.
(shh I have like 4 plumes left becaus eI keep dying in normal shadow fights I know how you feel)

Alright! I will keep that in mind, thank you very much. :D
I will have to be more careful though, what happened is that I split up and accidentally run into 5 shadows.... >__>

Thank you for the advice!

I been playing Persona 4 Arena for the PS3 that i got from Gamefly. I never play Persona 4 or 3 before but it got me interest in the series. I really like Akihiko Sanadea from Persona 3 that's why i want to play 3 to learn more about him. Persona 4 Arena is a ok fighting game alot of reading and not alot of fighting like if u play Labrys story it's all reading and only one fight. Which is not a bad thing i don't mind reading in a RPG but not in a Fighting Game.
