  • Regular healing with spells that provide full effect is essential. Along with that, players will find using Thermopylae quite handy for adding buffs to their attack and defense. This will be quite helpful to defeat Reaper in Persona 5 Royal.
  • Next, you can use the Makarakarn to thwart any of Reaper’s elemental attacks. This will only leave him with the almighty attack Megidolaeon which he will use multiple times while fighting.
