Persona 5 RoyalEdit

In Persona 5 Royal, Technical damage has been overhauled, to the point where it can become necessary during certain fights. Particularly for Savage Shadows, such as Fafnir, who have no weaknesses and many resistances. Utilizing Technical damage is encouraged, as Makoto Niijima's Persona trait increases the chance of inflicting Burn, Shock, or Freeze, opening the door for strategic attacks.

Like Baton Pass, it is now possible to rank up Technical attacks by playing billiards in Kichijoji. In order to land the trick shots needed to increase Technical rank, the protagonist must have sufficient Proficiency and have the right items.

  • Rank 1 → Technical Damage+ (Default)
  • Rank 2 → Technical Damage++ (Requires Rank 3 Proficiency and to have read Expert Billards)
  • Rank 3 → Technical Damage+++ / Knockdown rate+ (Requires Rank 4 Proficiency and to have the Jump Cue)
  • Rank 4 → Technical Damage++++ / Will knock down enemy (Requires Rank 5 Proficiency and having read the book given to you after Rank 3)

New Technical combinations are added after reading the book "Knowing the Heart". It is available for purchase for ¥12,000 from Jinbocho, once all the other books have been read. By default, only Psychic damage can be used to inflict technical damage on Forget, Confuse, Fear, Despair, Rage, and Brainwash.
