Lost Judgment‘s School Stories require Yagami to improve four different stats in order to gain access to new activities and stories. One of these stats is Appeal, and this guide will describe some of the fastest ways to improve it.
Lost Judgment, published by Sega and made by the Ryu Ga Gotoku development studio, falls into the action-adventure genre. Continuing the adventures of Takayuki Yagami, a former lawyer turned detective, the game follows him investigating a sexual harassment case with ties to a recent murder. Along the way, he participates in a wide array of activities and takes on a number of side cases in both Kamurocho and Ijincho.
As the second club introduced in the School Stories, the Dance Club becomes available very early into School Stories and is the most easily accessible way to raise the Appeal stat. It drops off quickly but still serves as the easiest way to raise Appeal for a little while. As the access to later Dance Club events is often locked behind a higher Appeal level it’s essential to find more efficient methods as the level gets harder to raise.
Another source of the Appeal stat is the Biker Gang activity. To unlock this players need to get Yagami’s Guts to level 2. Unfortunately, this means unlocking the Boxing Club and doing some activities there, which in turn requires level 2 Focus. To reach level 2 Focus players will need to participate in the Robotics Club activities, which are unlocked by coming first in the second dance competition at the Dance Club.
Completing this set of steps will allow players to build up Appeal via the Biker Gang activities in addition to the Dance Club activities.
Taking part in the various Skateboard Races and challenges will also allow players to raise their Appeal. In order to unlock the Skateboarding School story, players need to raise their Leadership to 3, which can be done using the Dance and Robotics activities. Eventually, Yagami will be asked to investigate the Skateboarders, and the ensuing case will open up the Skateboarding activities.
Skateboarding is one of the quicker activities, making it easier to repeat in quick succession to boost stats rapidly. As such it’s probably the best way to raise the Appeal stat. Of course, players might want to mix this up with the other activities if it gets boring grinding the same activity over and over again.
Lost Judgment is available for PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna.
