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

    • 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.
