Persona 5 Strikers: How to Level Up Fast

Persona 5 Strikers is available to the masses so Persona 5 fans are probably stoked to check out the sequel to their favorite game. However, some of these Persona fans might not have played the Dynasty Warriors games by Koei Tecmo. While most fans already knew that Strikers was going to have a similar combat system to the Warriors games, they might also be shocked to know that it kept its necessary level grinding as well.

Persona 5 Strikers: How to Level Up Fast

Yes, grinding levels are normal in most JRPGs but Persona 5 didn’t make leveling up for bosses a hard thing. Knowing enemy weaknesses and having enough healing items was usually enough to stay ahead. Unfortunately, that’s not the case with Strikers since some bosses are pretty tough and you will find yourself going back to old dungeons so you can get to a higher level.

Treasure Demons make a return from Persona 5 and give a ton of EXP but like in the original game, their appearances are few and far between. While you can level up the Treasure Hunter Bond skill to increase their appearances, it doesn’t do much so you’re better off fighting in your favorite dungeon.

We definitely recommend doing Requests if you want to reach a high level since they can net you new foes and alternate bosses to face. These challenges are sure to give fans a decent amount of experience to reach higher levels for a boss they might be having trouble with. 

Koei Tecmo games being a grind shouldn’t be a surprise to those experienced with some of their other games. Dynasty Warriors made players grind for fights against Lu Bu, Hyrule Warriors had Challenges that required players to be in a specific level, and other examples Koei Tecmo players are bound to share. At the least, it makes Persona 5 Strikers stand out in a big way from its predecessor.

Persona 5 Strikers is now available on the PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
