Anonymous said: Hi, Famed Anon again. Just saw your answer on another ask about Streetpass functions and that sounds nifty as hell. Unfortunately, nobody seems to play SMT IV other than I around where I live. Anyway, I need to bug you about one more thing. I am only missing Siegfried, Hagen and Lanling Wang Whatever; I'd like to know what setups would you suggest to limit accident results going all over the place, which started happening with the Pales thing.
Never give up with the Streetpasses! If you’re within the US, try the hubs at McDonald’s and Home Depot or various other locations and be surprised. Then again, I can’t say I’ve gotten an SMTIV tag at those places either. Alternately, go to a nerd gathering like a game music concert or some sort of convention. It’s basically a guarantee there.
But that’s a lot of effort just for some stupid demons. The only real advice I can give just echoes things I’ve already said and what you’ve undoubtedly read. But you do have the hard parts over! Since Siegfried and Hagen are relatively close in level, and mid-level-range, I would suggest fusing for just Hagen first, as Siegfried might show up too as a result for him. Fuse around a level 55 result, dead Mad Gasser included fortunately. What you want to fill your stock coffers with is up to you. You could eschew results below 55 and try to get everything between 55 and 62, but fill in the holes as they might appear in an accident. Or be as comprehensive as possible from the get-go (+ Slime). Lanling Wang is more of the same—but at least lower level demons = cheaper compendium prices!
I can’t offer any specific setups, only because I can’t remember them. Per the Tokisaga post, I did use Seraph x Mad Gasser for Siegfried, but that wasn’t planned nor is something that extreme needed, plus there’s that whole being 12 levels lower than the intended result thing. In other words, this is a truly chaotic process with no guarantees except that results can vary wildly. But, in my experience, accident results more often than not stick within short range of the intended demon, meaning that if you buy out everything from level 53 to 60 with a level 55 result, you’re more likely to get Hagen than something 12 levels above or below 55. Buying out a level range of demons is really the only thing you can do to alleviate the pain.
