Defeating the Reaper
I suggest to be at least level 70+ minimum before facing this Shadow. The higher, the better. This enemy is still a threat even if all your characters are at LV99. First tip, DO NOT USE MAGIC/ATTACK MIRRORs. This will trigger the Reaper to use Megidolaon EVERY TURN. Even with Mediarahan, that will pose a problem.
Next: Have a party member or two take care of the support/ healing. When I battled the Reaper, my preferred party was Yukari, Mitsuru and Aigis. Yukari is essential for healing/ reviving allies while Aigis party affecting support skills on Heal/Support mode helps a lot in keeping the party afloat. You can replace Mitsuru with any strong attacker you may have.
For the offensive, use MEGIDOLAON. This enemy has very strong damage resistance and good evasion rate. Megido skills are almost always accurate (96-99%) and has no attribute (sure to pierce through any resistance) so this is your attack skill of choice.
Death is dangerous for having high level attacks, damaging spells and instant death attacks. As long as you have a good supply of Homunculus, you will be safe from these kinds of attacks Dont hesitate to use your rare consumables such as Balms of Life, Soma, etc. You wont need them in your last battles since you could be strong as hell that you would laugh out at Nyx.
