Shin Megami Tensei V from Atlus and Sega is finally here on Nintendo Switch. The first mainline entry in the series after Shin Megami Tensei IV and IV Apocalypse on Nintendo 3DS arrives with quite a bit of DLC available from launch day. Read my glowing review of the game here. One of Shin Megami Tensei V’s most important mechanics is the Miracle and Glory system. This guide will cover Shin Megami Tensei V Miracles, Glory, tips on which Miracles to unlock, how to get Glory, and more. This guide will not include story spoilers.
What are Miracles in Shin Megami Tensei V
Miracles in Shin Megami Tensei V are the means to change the reasons of the world as Nahobino wishes. The Miracles sytem is the equivalent of Shin Megami Tensei IV’s app system. There are four types of Miracles in Shin Megami Tensei V:
- Shin Megami Tensei V Supremacy Miracles: These affect battle and negotiation.
- Shin Megami Tensei V Doctrine Miracles: These affect demon fusion and shopping.
- Shin Megami Tensei V Awakening Miracles: These affect stats and growth.
- Shin Megami Tensei V Cosmos Miracles: These affect skill potentials.
How to unlock Miracles in Shin Megami Tensei V
As you defeat abscesses across the land, you will unlock the ability to use new Miracles at the World of Shadows. Once you have gotten new Miracles at the World of Shadows, you spend glory to unlock them.
How to get glory in Shin Megami Tensei V
You can get glory by finding Miman creatures or special silver chests across the land. You also get glory through fulfilling certain conditions during progression.
Best Shin Megami Tensei V Miracles to learn early on
Early on, consider unlocking Knowledge of Tools to let your demons use items, Magatsuhi Wellspring that has all allies recover a bit of HP and MP each turn when the Magatsuhi gauge is full, Fell Swoop (to increase the Magatsuhi gauge when inflicting weak or critical), Hand of God (chance to get one extra relic), Unforgotten Memories (newly fused demons gain EXP based on stats of demons fused), and more.
Considering how hard glory is to come by initially, Miracles the ones above or even Empowering Cheer (recover HP and MP when leveling up) are useful to have early on. Hopefully this helps you in the early parts of Shin Megami Tensei V.
