Where can I get 10 thousand coins. I beat the bet race but I used the coins to get items off the counter then went to the Areana. But now I’m stuck at 9,390 cause I was able to find some. I need 1 thousand left to get to do the Areana is there any way to get more?


Look around for present boxes and steal those. If you do that, you will most definitely have enough.


I suggest you to try this method: if u want more money in game, when u go in mementos, assure to have 2-3 request to do (prolly at higher area through mementos), u need only a strong persona that u can grow with gallow + skill add. U need a high luck persona with confuse boost + punpilea (the move that have higer chance to confuse one foe), then u go to beat the boss request target (assure to save in the break area nearbody), dont kill the boss foe sudden, u only need to confuse him with ur high… Read more »


Hmm i can see why there’s not a really detailed walk through here most of it is just luck with the dice then follow the map

no one's asked this?

does finishing her palace early fast forward to the story on the 20th persona 4 style or does it let you play out the rest of the days till the 20th


There is actually no way to send the calling card before nov 18. When you try you get at cutscene explaining(?) why.


Who the fuck labels a map with numbers and letters but doesn’t say what those numbers and letters mean?


The information about Rangda’s weaknesses is completely wrong, just saying

Not weaknesses

Wait not weaknesses, they’re fine. The reflects and everything else.

Missing something?

Did the first lot of dice game and won a couple of thousand. Now what? I’m still on 3,890.


Head to the elevator and interact with it.

red panel

Where the hell is the red one, been finding it for one day, help please


Can someone tell me where the red panel is, looking for hours ????

Found red panel

It is in front of the big rolling slots on the floor where the shadow forcefully fought you, its just there a small walk near the entrance of the slot area


You know when u first go in the slot room and u were forced to fight that enemy its right in the front on the left side


Man this guide is shit. Too bad no others exist


All of their guides are terrible, they probably just wana use this garbage to get hits as its the only “guide” available


Where is the green board, I can’t find it anywhere


I’d also like to know…


Found it…lower case “b” on the slot room map
