anyone who’s playing this game and not digging into the systems too much: i highly recommend using the Curry Shop when it unlocks.
Not sure this counts as a spoiler but in case anyone doesn’t want to know how it works…??
I thought it was a consumable item store but its actually a persistent party-wide buff you can and should have up at all times. You make your own curry, you let it “brew” for however many battles you do before you go eat it (maximum 100), and then you go eat it at the curry shop and it lasts that many battles going forward.
Different ingredients you put into it give it different effects and you can put as many ingredients in as you want in the bottom ingredient slot. I don’t know what they all do, but I can tell you that every Fist weapon you put in gives you 1% crit chance (additive). Buy 100 of the cheapest fist weapon now at the store for like 5000HL and put them in your curry, come back 100 battles later and eat it and your entire team will have 100% crit chance for the next 100 battles. Start brewing the next batch as you eat it and the next 100 battle curry will be ready when yours runs out!

[spoiler] When you reincarnate a character, they will have higher stats based on how many Sub-classes they’ve mastered. if you’ve mastered every subclass they’ll have 10mil bonus to every stat @ lv9999 if raised in the Elite 4 squad.
You can master a sub-class in literally one action if you have access to the Land of Carnage (post-game quests lead here). Go into a land of carnage item’s item world with the enemies set to 20* difficulty. Use a sage, and magichange 4 monsters into the sage (highly recommend Metallia as one of the monsters, see below). Use Geo Blast on the 20* land of carnage item world’s Geo panels and all 5 of those units will max out whatever subclass they have equipped. Use a mr Gency Exit, go swap everyone’s subclass, repeat.
next up: shards and extracts. Those Shards you get from killing Revenge Mode enemies, and the Extracts you get from interrogating captured enemies, they give a character permanent stat upgrades that persist through reincarnation, limit 10 million per stat per character.
the DLC character Metallia has a unique Overload that hits every enemy on the map with a Capture attempt.
There’s a map that has 100 enemies on it and with this very, very specific setup you can get Metallia to successfully capture 99 of them and kill the boss, on land of carnage 20* stronger enemies when metallia only has 10 million in each stat herself. Takes about an hour? to get 10mil extract to feed to another unit.
When you do feed the extracts to a unit make sure you use it IN A BATTLE and not in the base, and use it from someone with the Maid Evility that makes consumable items hit in a + shaped AoE so you actually give it to five units and not one!
