Susano-O

persona-4-golden-susano-o

Susano-O can only be obtained once you maximize the Magician Social Link with Yosuke Hanamura. Yosuke’s previous persona, Jiraiya, will automatically transform into Susano-O, carrying its level and skills.

Its default level is carried over from whatever your Yosuke’s Jiraiya was at when he transformed.

Spending Time with Yosuke during the Winter Event, if you have already maximized the Magician Social Link, will cause Susano-O to transform into Takehaya Susano-O.

Takehaya Susano-O

persona-4-golden-takehaya_susano-o

Takehaya Susano-O is the third and final persona form of Yosuke Hanamura.

Takehaya Susano-O can only be obtained during the Winter Event (post January 11th) once you have maximized the Magician Social Link with Teddie to Rank 10. Susano-O will automatically transform into Takehaya Susano-O when you Spend Time with Yosuke one last time.

Its level is carried over from Susano-O as well as all skills. However, once you receive Takehaya Susano-O, the persona will learn a new ability called “Youthful Wind” which serves to moderately restore the party’s HP and increase Hit/Evasion rates for everyone.

Once you have obtained Takehaya Susano-O, Yosuke also has a change in resistances– he now will absorb Wind damage (up from blocking) and will now block Fire-based abilities, up from resisting. However, Yosuke will remain weak to Electricity attacks.

    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.

      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! ^_^
