How to Make An Eternal Lockpick [Persona 5 / P5]

This page contains a guide on how to create an Eternal Lockpick in Persona 5, including required abilities, enemies to hunt and strategies to obtain them.

How to Make An Eternal Lockpick

As its name suggests, the Eternal Lockpick is a reusable lockpick that allows you to open locked treasure chests in Palaces or Mementos. This saves you the trouble of making lots of the standard lockpicks at the work desk so you can devote more time to other matters.

When Can you Make An Eternal Lockpick

You’ll need to have raised the Magician Arcana to rank 6 to unlock the co-op ability Ace Tools on August 29. This ability allows you to craft all Infiltration Tools, including the Eternal Lockpick. You can check out our guides about Lockpicks and Other Infiltration Tools.

Materials You Need

To make an Eternal Lockpick, you’ll need 20 Aluminum Sheet and 10 Liquid Mercury. You can obtained both items from the Shadows at Futaba Palace when it opens on July 26. Some of the items can also be obtained in Okumura Palace.

Note the specific Shadows below that drop the required materials to make the Eternal Lockpick.

Shadow Item Drop Location
Anzu Aluminum Sheet
  • Futaba Palace
  • Memento (Deprived of Mercy Road) Areas 10 and 11
Anubis Liquid Mercury
  • Futaba Palace
  • Memento (Deprived of Mercy Road) Areas 1, 2, 3, 7 and 10
Decarabia Liquid Mercury
  • Okumura Palace Facilities Passage
Ganesha Aluminum Sheet
  • Okumura Palace Barracks Area


Tips for Fighting Enemies that Drop the Required Materials

  1. Anubis in particular uses very powerful spells that may quickly wipe out your entire party, so it is a good idea to frequently save when you’ve obtained any of the required materials from them.
  2. You must finish the battle by defeating the enemies. This will not count if you end the battle through negotiation.
