Persona 4 Golden Walkthrough

Void Quest

persona_4_golden_void_quest_entrance

Void Quest is the fifth Dungeon in the TV World. It’s modeled after a traditional 8-Bit Video Game dungeon. There are several Video Game and RPG references scattered throughout. This dungeon first becomes available on July 29th, and it must be cleared by August 12th.

You should quickly notice each floor is called “Chapter.” The third chapter will be a bit hard to navigate through. There are several “+” sections that have three dead ends. Walk to the left or right dead end to transport to another “+” section to the left or right, depending on the direction you took.

Killing Hand and Almighty Hand

Chapter seven will try to mess with your head by changing the direction of the camera when you come to an intersection. Just because the camera changed doesn’t mean you have to change the direction you’re traveling. A boss battle should be to the North West on this floor.

STRATEGY

This fight is a bit of a complex one. Almighty Hand can cure Killing Hand, so you would think eliminating Almighty Hand would be the thing to do. However, if Almighty Hand is taken out, Killing Hand can summon a brand new Almighty Hand. If you can deal enough damage, eliminate Almighty Hand while damaging Killing Hand. Hopefully, you’ll cause enough damage to kill off Killing Hand while the curing has stopped.

After the fight, search the chest behind them to find the Orb of Darkness. Take the stairs to the next “Chapter.”

Shadow Mitsuo / Mitsuo the Hero

The 10th floor, also known as “Endgame,” holds the final boss. You will need the Orb of Darkness from the last boss fight to open it.

STRATEGY

Shadow Mitsuo will be a bit of a troublesome boss battle if you’re not a high enough level. It has no weakness to any element, and the true boss is hidden within a protective shell. To defeat him, you’ll have to break the outer shell, then kill the boss before the shell rebuilds.

The first step is to destroy the shell, “Mitsuo the Hero.” Use whatever your Personas specialize in, whether it be Physical or Magical damage. Nothing will be able to knock it down for All-Out Attacks, so keep chipping away at its health. While it’s in this form, it can only use three attacks: Fight, Spell, and Item. Fight is your basic physical attack, spell is a magic attack that hits the entire party, and item is a Status Ailment attack that may cause Exhaustion.

When the shell is gone, Shadow Mitsuo will be vulnerable. It may even get knocked down the instant the shell is broken. If it does get knocked down, perform an All-Out Attack. Shadow Mitsuo won’t stay down long enough for each team member to do their own attack.

After a few turns, Shadow Mitsuo will start building its shell again. It takes three Skill uses to fully build the shell, two of which can be done in the same turn. It won’t just be building its shell, however, it will have a small number of magical skills that can be used to damage, build resistances, or inflict Fear.

If you do enough damage before the shell is rebuilt, he will get knocked down again. Perform another All-Out Attack before he gets up.

Defeat him to clear the dungeon. More story-filled scenes will play right after, and the Teddie / Star Social Link will rank up. You will return to the real world shortly after.

Escapist Soldier

Return after clearing the dungeon to face Escapist Soldier on the tenth floor.

SKILLS

      • Foul Breath: Ailment susceptibility up on one party member
      • Mudoon: Medium Chance: Darkness magic on one party member
      • Blades of Fury: Medium Physical Damage to entire party 2x to 4x.
      • Mind Slice: Medium Physical damage on entire party with a chance of Panic

STRATEGY

Escapist Soldier will resist Physical damage, so Magical attacks are the way to go. Build a team that specializes in magic to take it down before it can do much damage.

This guy will use Foul Breath to increase ailment susceptibility, then use Mind Slice to cause physical damage on the entire party with a chance of Panic. Bring Yukiko or Teddie to heal the Status Ailment, or bring a few healing items. The other attack he may perform is Mudoon, a dark magic attack. For those who aren’t familiar with darkness and light magic, they do not cause damage, only instant kills.

After the battle, check the skull and bones sprite on the back wall for a new weapon:

Gaia Sword

      • Effect: Inflicts All Ailments (Low)
      • Attack: 200
      • Hit: 88
  • 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! ^_^
