The Caligula Effect 2

  • Kii's shop sells character exclusive stigmas but also Supremacy (which boosts buffs) and Inferiority Complex (which boosts debuffs)
  • Equip protagonist-exclusive stigmas; they typically improve your attacks and dreadnought+ is a game changer.
  • Everyone's roles (Support, Attacker, Tank, Debuffer, etc.) are listed in the status menu.
  • Ryuto and Kiriko (and to a lesser extent, Shota) are game-breakers.
  • Timing is everything, especially when using counter moves.
  • If you can't get a shield up on time, just sprint away. Try multiple directions and see if any avoid being hit.
