For Persona 3 Portable players just starting out, these Persona are great choices for winning battles.
Persona 3 is a classic game in the now-famous JRPG series. It was the first game in the series to have Social Link mechanics. The game came out for the first time in 2006, but since then, it has been updated several times with FES and Portable.
Persona 3 Portable was recently released on PC and modern consoles for the first time. This means that a new generation of gamers can now play this classic game. Some players may choose Persona 3 Portable as their first Persona game, which can be hard because it is much harder than the games that came after it. Here are the best Personas to use during the Thebel Block of Tartarus in the first month of the game.
Apsaras is a level 3 Priestess Persona. She is likely to be one of the first Personas players get early in the game. Even though it doesn’t have that many moves, it can use Bufu to hit many of the weak spots of enemies on the first fifteen floors of Tartarus.
Apsaras is immune to attacks that use ice, so spells cast by Bufu do less damage to it. It can also use Sukunda to slow down fast enemies, making it harder for them to dodge or hit. But because it is weak to Slash attacks, even simple attacks can knock the user down.
Forneus is a level 7 Persona of the Emperor Arcana, which means that players will have to have gone a long way into Tartarus before they can call it. But the work isn’t really worth it because its base kit only has two main damage skills: Bufu and Bash.
Forneus doesn’t take damage from Ice, but it does take damage from Fire. This makes it risky to use against enemies in this block of Tartarus that use Agi. It can also use Tarukaja to make its own damage or the damage of an ally stronger.
Nekomata is a level 5 Persona of the Magician Arcana. It is one of the first Personas to give the player access to a spell with multiple targets in Maragi. Fire skills are its main way to do damage, but Cleave gives it access to Slash damage.
Nekomata can’t be hurt by fire and doesn’t have any weaknesses, so it’s a good defensive Persona to use against subbosses like Dancing Hand that can hit with more than one element. Nekomata is a decent first Persona, but later options are much better.
Alp is a level 6 Persona of the Lovers Arcana, and it is a direct upgrade to Pixie. Garu and Mudo are two elemental attacks that Alp can use. Dia and Sukunda are two support skills that Alp can use. This gives Alp a lot of choices to make during battle.
Alp resists Wind damage, but is weak to Ice damage. It is a good choice against two of the three subbosses in Thebel Block that often use Garu skills because it is resistant to wind. Its weakness to ice may leave the player open to random enemies, but it is still very useful.
Ara Mitama is a level 6 Persona of the Chariot Arcana. She has the most versatile set of moves so far. It possesses the rudimentary damage skills of Bash and Agi, but excels as a support Persona thanks to Rakukaja, Sukukaja, and Rakunda.
Strike attacks can’t hurt Ara Mitama, so it’s a good way to defend against many of the basic mobs that roam Thebel Block. But since it is weak to Wind attacks, you shouldn’t use it against the sub-bosses, since many of them use Wind attacks often.
Omoikane is a Persona of the Hierophant Arcana that is a level 7 Persona. It can use Electric skills like Zio to attack and Healing skills like Dia and Me Patra to help its allies. Omoikane is the first Persona that can use Zio or Me Patra, which makes it a very important early Persona.
Omoikane is also immune to electric attacks, which makes it a good choice for the Rampage Drive sub-boss. This sub-boss often casts Mazio, but if you have Omoikane, you can take less damage each time it does.
As a level 8 Persona of the Magician Arcana, the well-known Jack Frost shows up. For the Thebel Block, players probably won’t be able to fuse Jack Frost until the end of the block, when they won’t need it much.
Still, Jack Frost is a strong early Persona if you can get him. It has a skill called “Ice Boost,” which makes its Ice skills even better. It can also completely block Ice attacks from enemies. Jack Frost is a strong early- Eggy Car game mage who can kill a lot of the monsters in Thebel Block.
Lilim is a level 8 Devil Persona, just like Jack Frost, and the player probably won’t be able to use her until the end of Thebel Block. But Lilim is well worth the trouble to fuse or summon, since she can use Agi, Zio, and Mudo to cover three different elements.
Lilim is immune to Electric and Dark attacks, and her weakness to Light isn’t much of a problem since no enemies on the first few floors can use Hama. Lilim is a powerful Persona that can still do work in the next block of Tartarus and is just as useful in Thebel Block.
