Palace Information and Guide

Recommended Strategies for December

1) Max Out your Confidants

Make sure that you’ve maxed your social links with your confidants before proceeding through Shido Palace. It is very essential to max out your Strength Confidant since it is an integral part of this month’s ending. If you haven’t, don’t worry since you can still max it out during your Mementos Mission Request activities or during your actual Mementos Depths infiltration.

Confidant List

2) Stay Longer in Mementos to Level Up your Party and Farm Money

There will be certain periods this month where you need to visit Mementos to accomplish mission requests. While inside the public’s palace, take advantage of the opportunity to level up your party members as well as their assigned personas. In addition, you can also acquire more money to buy stronger weapons, guns, armor, and accessories. When it comes to accessories, we suggest you acquire at least four SP Adhesive 3s to sustain your party’s SP if you still haven’t. Lastly, sell non-consumables items obtained along the way.
