28F: The Cave Where Forgotten Heroes Lie
When you follow the first path on this floor, you'll soon reach a blue symbol that is reminiscent to those on 10-12F and the main gimmick of this floor. They warp you one space ahead in the direction you were facing when you entered them. Because of so many of those teleporters, navigating this floor can be a bit confusing, possibly even more than 27F. If you want to explore in a certain direction, it is best to look at the map and track the way from that point back to the start. There are also a lot of one-way-passages that often lead you back near the start of the maze. It will take you a lot of time to explore this floor, but the treasure is worth it (especially the Rhododendron Dress near the actual exit to 29F). The stairs to the next floor are actually very close to the starting point (right east of it), but the maze leads you all over the place until you finally get there. There is no boss on this floor or any other special events.
The jump in difficulty from 27F to this floor is quite big. The most dangerous encounter on this floor are 3x Victrious Little Tengu. These enemies have 1500 Speed and have very strong Multi-target attacks. In fact, if you do not have anyone faster than them in your active party, their attacks, most notable the powerful God Press, are likely to take out anyone but your tanks. Unless you have someone fast enough already, you should grind on lower floors until you start exploring here.
If you encounter a single Golden Massive Kedama, don't be fooled: It is actually 3 (maybe 4?) of those enemies stacked on top of each other. Not only do they have a lot of HP (about 2 million) and strong attacks, you can never be sure how many of them you have paralysed and only the one ATB of the enemies that is fullest is visible. If you want to fight them, use someone who can paralyse with Multi-target-attacks, like Mystia, Komachi or Yukari
Magical Mediators seem to have extremely good defenses. However, they really only have extremely high resistances against all elements. Use non-elemental attacks to defeat them.
Kedama Goddesses are a bit like Magical Mediators with even higher defenses, high resistances, but much less HP. Non-elemental attacks work well once more, but the best attack to use is probably Shikieiki's Last Judgement, which should defeat them with one attack.
