November 12, 2021

Shin Megami Tensei V (SMT V) can be an incredibly hard game if you don’t know what you’re doing, and if you’re a newcomer to the series, you might be wondering how to heal and save money (Macca).

Shin Megami Tensei V is one of the most anticipated Switch releases of all time, seeing it was one of the very first games announced on the console’s full reveal in January 2017. It can be considered a hardcore JRPG and can be quite a challenge for unaccustomed players even on Normal difficulty.

How to heal your Demons and party in Shin Megami Tensei V

  • You can heal your characters by using Skills of the Dia family, but that will cost you MP.
  • There are green orbs scattered on maps that will restore your party’s HP. These respawn fairly often.
  • There are also certain moments in the game where you will get a free HP regen after each battle.
  • Lastly, you have the Leyline Founts, where you can pay Macca to heal yourself with the Restore menu.

Those are the main methods you can use to heal yourself in SMT V. Certain demons also have HP draining Skills you can use in battle. Certain Miracles you can learn will also heal you depending on the situation.

Also, keep in mind it’s more expensive to heal your MP than to heal your HP.

Moreover, if you plan to fuse a demon, you should go ahead and fuse them without healing them. You can even fuse a demon if they’re dead.

A good way to save money is to go fight with demons you’re about to fuse to grind for Macca, EXP, and items. Once they run out of MP, instead of healing them, fuse them now. Remember to save as frequently as possible to not take any risks.

Shin Megami Tensei V is available now on Switch. Note that the game was released two days earlier in Japan with the timezone difference, hence why you’ve seen some Japanese fans streaming or sharing screenshots on social media. Some fans around the world also got their physical copy shipped early. Atlus asked fans to properly tag spoilers.
