In Shin Megami Tensei V, The Spirit of Love is a quest that can be picked up from Apsaras in the Netherworld region.

In this quest, players will be tasked with both tracking and taking down Leanan Sidhe, who Apsaras claims are attempting to "seduce" weaker demons over to her side only to lead them to future despair. Here's a breakdown of how to complete The Spirit of Love quest in Shin Megami Tensei V.

Shin Megami Tensei V The Spirit of Love: How to Complete the Quest

After taking on the quest, players can head south of Tokyo Plaza to the Shiba Park region to find Leanan Sidhe. Directly east of the Shiba Leyline Fount, she can be spotted sitting next to a giant mechanical man named Ippon-Datara.

At this point, players will have the choice of siding with Apsaras or Leanan Sidhe as Nahobino will have the choice to talk to Sidhe and ultimately "Do nothing" or "Support the other side."

For those looking to stay loyal to Apsaras, the initial option of "Fulfill Apsaras' request" or "Do nothing" will allow players to complete The Spirit of Love quest by defeating Leanan Sidhe and Ippon Datara.

After defeating Leanan Sidhe, she will deny being wrong before fleeing, allowing players to return to Apsaras to complete the quest. As a reward, players will receive 2 Health Incense, 700 EXP, and have Apsaras join their parties.

For those looking to go down Leanan Sidhe's route, effectively failing The Spirit of Love quest and instead starting The Water Nymph quest, they must talk to her to hear her argument that Apsaras has tricked the protagonist and is raising an army of pawns.

By choosing to "Support the other side," players will have to fight Apsaras and three Agathions.

After defeating Apsaras, she will concede against his own means of helping the weak, and although she disappears, her followers will still keep their loyalty to her teachings. Finally, players will be able to return to Leanan Sidhe to receive two Stamina Incense,700 EXP, and have Leanan Sidhe join their parties.

Ultimately, Leanan Sidhe has the better healing skill, as well as a powerful Mamudo skill, but Apsaras is still a solid choice due to her solid array of Ice-based magic. which is very effective in the fight against Hydra.
