Steamy Bathhouse

persona_4_golden_bathhouse_entrace

The Steamy Bathhouse is the third Dungeon in the TV World. It first becomes available on May 19th, and it must be completed by June 4th.

 

Daring Gigas

The Seventh Floor of the Steamy Bathhouse contains the first boss battle.

Lvl. HP SP EXP Yen
24 928 100 700 250
Phys. Fire Ice Elec. Wind Light Dark
- - - - - Nul Nul

SKILLS

      • Single Shot: Inflicts Light Physical damage to one Party Member
      • Power Charge: Next attack (Normal, Physical, or Almighty) will be 2x as powerful
      • Tarukaja: Increases Attack for 3 turns
      • Rebellion: Increases Critical Hit Rate for 3 turns
      • Counter: 10% chance of repelling Physical Attacks
      • Sharp Student: Raises resistance to Critical Hits

STRATEGY

Daring Gigas will buff his attack stat with both Power Charge and Tarukaja, so his single shot will definitely hurt more than you would initially think. If Daring Gigas uses Rebellion too, it would be in your best interest to guard. Make use of any revival items you have, should you need to.

Buff your evasion stat with Sukunda and try to have a Persona equipped that resists Physical damage. It’s best to use Magic Skills since Physical Skills may be countered.

Shadow Kanji

The top floor is floor 11. Shadow Kanji will be waiting.

Lvl. HP SP EXP Yen
24 2,000 1,000 1008 8,500
Phys. Fire Ice Elec. Wind Light Dark
- - - Dr - Nul Nul

SKILLS

      • Power Charge: Doubles the power of the next Physical attack.
      • Swift Strike: Inflicts Light Physical damage up to two times on the entire party.
      • Fatal End: Inflicts Moderate Physical damage to one party member
      • Roar of Wrath: Inflicts Rage on Female Characters only
      • Fanatical Spark: Inflicts Moderate Electric damage to all party members
      • Forbidden Murmur: Poisons all Male Characters
      • Tetrakarn: Repels one Physical attack
      • Spirit Drain: Drains 30SP from one party member

STRATEGY

Shadow Kanji will likely poison your Male Party Members and enrage your Female Party Members, so any items or skills that you have that can undo these effects will definitely come in handy. Dokudami Teas should help in this fight.

Taking out Nice Guy and Tough Guy is not necessary to finish the battle, but it may make the fight easier and provides an experience boost.

A Persona with Physical and Electric Resistances will help a lot, as Shadow Kanji and his buddies play rough. Be aware of Nice Guy and Tough Guy, as they block certain elemental attacks.

Nice Guy should be taken out first; he regularly buffs and heals Shadow Kanji, making your job harder. He will cast a Fire Resistance spell on the enemy party, protecting Tough Guy from being knocked down. Use Ice elemental attacks to knock down Nice. After Nice Guy has been taken out, focus your attention on Tough Guy, who is weak to Fire elemental attacks.

After the battle, you will return to the real world.

Intolerant Officer

persona_4_golden_intolerant_officer_affinities

Lvl. HP SP EXP Yen
? ? ? 1162 1,000
Phys. Fire Ice Elec. Wind Light Dark
- - - Wk - Nul Nul

SKILLS

      • Poison Arrow: Physical damage to one party member with a chance of Poison
      • Bufula: Medium Ice damage to one party member
      • Garula: Medium Wind damage to one party member

STRATEGY

Return after rescuing Kanji to find Intolerant Officer on the 11th floor. He’s weak to electric and does Medium Ice damage to one party member. He will use it to double attack Yukiko if she’s in battle. If not, or if you guard, Intolerant Officer will use Garula: Medium Wind damage skill.

It won’t take much damage from an all out attack. It’s best to use two electric attacks, then hit with physical while it’s down, unless Kanji is in the party for multiple electric attacks.

After the battle, search the area for a new weapon for Kanji:

Iron Plate

      • Effect: +2 Magic
      • Attack: 113
      • Hit: 92
  • BlaBlaBla

    Seriously, LOVE your IGN Guide!
    But….it only goes up to May 19th….where’s the rest?
    You mention here that it’s a complete guide so…what happened to the rest of it??

    • I didn’t do that day by day walkthrough. I did the abridged walkthrough. Check out those pages. They’re complete and everything.

    • Kez Fitzgerald

      I was disappointed as well, but then I decided to help myself to it, so I’m currently working on the day-by-day walkthrough. Since I was puzzled on what to do for a little bit, I went ahead in the game on my own, so you’ll notice that the guide will resume on May 21st. I started about a month ago, so it hasn’t gotten very far. (June 1st, right now.) Also, there is a long process of making sure I have every little aspect of the game complete, which involves creating multiple saves, multiple experiments, and sometimes, multiple playthroughs.

      And of course, I have a part-time job and my parents are pleased when I have social outings. So, it may be a while before it’s “complete.”

      Anyway, If you notice something that doesn’t match up with your game, or you have a question, PLEASE feel free to contact me or leave a comment in the guide. Thank you! ^_^
