Easy Method to Earn Money
In Persona 5, you’ll need a lot of money. Why? It’s because you’ll be itemizing majority of the strong persona to make your uber-cool weapons that deal heavy damage. Or, you’ll need to buy that SP adhesive 3 that’s sitting in Tae Takemi’s clinic. Aside from selling the trash you pick up from the Palace, here are other ways to earn money.
1st Method: Farm from Mementos
You’ll need to have upgraded the Sun Arcana to Rank 3, which grant you abilities that net you a good amount of money when negotiating with enemies, or increase the amount obtained. You’ll need to have satisfied the two conditions below.
- Raise the rank of the Sun Arcana to 3.
- Make sure that you have unlocked Chemdah in Mementos.
- Walk around the Mementos Dungeon and look for a High Pixie Shadow to battle.
- Either shoot High Pixie with a gun or use Frei-skills to knock it down and have a “Hold Up!” scenario.
- Talk to the High Pixie.
- In the next conversation, ask for money.
- Once the enemy gives you money, keep asking for more.
- Wait for the High Pixie to get back up and call for reinforcements.
- Repeat steps 2 to 5.
No matter how many times you repeat the process, you’ll always get money. This means that you won’t need to encounter other High Pixies over and over again. Just remember to hit the weak points of the enemies to knock them down for you to execute a Hold Up. High Pixies appear in area 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Chemdah. With this method, you should be able to obtain tens of thousands of Yen with just one Memento infiltration.
2nd Method: World of Qliphoth and using Ann’s Tentarafoo skill
This one involves the farming of the World of Qliphoth. While it is one of the last dungeons in the game, you can farm this dungeon and carry your money over to the next play through. However, you’ll be in a bit of a pickle. You have to look for the persona, Kali. However, there’s a bit of a problem: she doesn’t have weaknesses. But if you retained Ann’s Tentarafoo ability and if you have Stagnant Air, you should be able to confuse her.
Once you confuse her, let her drop the money bit per bit. You can easily find her if you see a shadow engulfed in a red aura. Most of the time, the Shadow drops at least 10k+ ¥ at every turn. She also drops a few valuable healing items such as a Chewing Soul and Life Stones.
3rd Method: Fortune Confidant + Sun Confidant + Star Confidant + (insert name of Dungeon here) crawl
For this particular method to work, you need the Fortune Confidant (Level 3), Star Confidant (Level 7) and the Sun Confidant at level 3. This way, you can take advantage of the Economic Fortune and Money Collecting effect. With that, you’ll be able to farm more money as you fight your enemies. Follow the method as follows:
- Knock down the shadow and hit its weak point
- Choose talk and demand money
- Do this until it gets up
- Repeat steps 1-3 except instead of letting it get up, take them down.
With that, your money will not only double but you’ll also have the money from killing the shadows. When you have that, you’ll not only have yen to customize your weapons but also buy back your Persona should you itemize them.
