Im having a problem where I'm not getting the arcana bonuses despite having an Empress Persona. Can anybody help?


You made some first rate points there. I appeared on the internet for the difficulty and found most individuals will go together with along with your website.


Rank 9 skips choice 2, has choice 3 listed as choice 2 instead.


I had the same issue. Went back and found that choice 1 was inconsequential and choice 2 was full of the +3’s


Rank 3 Question 1 has the wrong choices listed.

Oh, it seems to be inverted. :)) Thanks for pointing it out. 🙂


prepare for feels if you dont romance her

Katherine Baskerville

I get what you mean. But my God, maxed out Proficiency just to continue the social confidant?? It’s a tall order unless you’ve been crafting thief tools and maxing out Munehisa Iwai’s Social Confidant the whole time.


for Rank 3, the 3rd choice should be the 1st choice and vice versa
