  1. If charm, guts ect. Are maxed do we have to keep putting stats on it? Like if I need guts only shouldnt i be doing something to give guts a boost instead of boosting something maxed out is the gist of what i am asking

  2. Some time after the 20th my afternoons are ahead of your schedule by a day so when I’m suppose to idk how if I’m following everything you have here using saves when i find it steered off the only differences were the stuff to wash i sold those off and saved over didnt think it be an issue and sure enough after that i read put so and so with so n so to wash (if available) <—reading that made me feel like ehh its ok no Biggy till now other than that I’ve done everything as if read here i have found differences I’ve gotten some positive feedback from NPCS when you have here that none are available …really wishing i had written all those down DAhh well, thanks for all the info by the way its been a huge and i mean huge help and I don’t mean any of the above to come off in a bad way at all I appreciate it and i can only image the hard work that went into this detailed work thanls to all those involved your MVPs in my book

  3. Sojiro wasn’t available for me to spend time with on 9/22 Evening. Did I mess something up earlier in the game? He’s at a 5.

  4. On the two days before going to Mementos to take care of those 8 requests, instead of working on Futaba, I had to work at the flower shop to get the “who’s assaulting people” request. Am I screwed or will I be able to make those ranks up? I’m in NG+, if that matters.

  5. I don’t have the Masukunda card and the Fusion alert is off now. is it necesary now? or Can i get the card later?

  6. Why is Futaba asking me to to defeat her uncle on 9/16 instead of allowing me to complete Shinya’s confidant?

  7. Is there a need for the excessive affinity boosts on Ohya? if i recall affinity points reset after every ranking right?

  8. I don’t want to look to far ahead, I’ve already had things spoiled for me, but does this guide unlock the extra palace and semester and the true ending?

    • Yes. Its not hard to unlock the extra content. Just make sure not to neglect the Councilor Faith and Justice confidants. The guide maxes everyone by early December just beware that there are complications for Lover and Death confidant because he romanced them. We have posted workarounds in the comment sections of July and August.

      • Thank you for always checking this comment section… do you have any recommendation on how to build the OP Personas like Kaguya/Yoshitsune/Grimekhala etc etc ? their preferred fusion?

  9. In the conversations with Chihaya Mifune, I must select the Romance options for maximize Fortune Confidant? I don’t want the romance with Mifune.

      • Don’t worry, this guide put some “Romance” tags on many confidents dialogs but the only real “romance” activation is when you have a little text bubble saying “I should choose my words” or something like that.

  10. I’m still yet to get a chance to rank my Lovers and Death to 10 because when the guide said to talk to them to get rank 10 a few months ago it was only a point boost date and that was before Fortune could add points to any confidant ranks so when can I get a free day for each of them.

    • Sorry to hear that. There are solutions posted in the comments for the July and August guides, if you want to reload a save or something.

  11. I have a few questions at this point why all the protein purchases does the guide do a bunch of training at the gym later on or something?

  12. I didn’t get the chihaya 7-7.5 on 9/1 so i didn’t get the mementos request, am i screwed for her confidant now? is there any way to catch up since we don’t go to mementos for a while after??

  13. Why do I have to boost Mishima if Mishima ranks up everytime you see him? (Provided you have his requests cleared and all)

    • You dont. Moon and Sun always rank up when you meet with them and you dont even truly need a Moon or Sun persona when you talk to them. You still get the bonus musical notes/points but their rank ups are irrelevant to the points anyways. In fact even if you have a moon persona when talking to mishima, you dont even get the message that would say ” I feel I could get closer to Mishima with my “name” persona “

  14. On 9/6 i had a sandman with 67 luck and red string R with null physical. I soloed kinki recieved no damage and confusion every turn my sp also doesnt drop to 50 because of some skill(confidant i think) after 1.5 hrs(while watching flasg) i didnt realize i reached 9,999,999 ???? btw i earned 100k-120k per confusion and some items

      • There are solutions in the comments of July/August if you don’t wan’t to romance Ann and Takemi. But if you plan to do all the romance this guide is accurate, albeit redundant sometimes with the random fortune readings for confidants that are already ready to advance

  15. Is there some reason all this money is being wasted boosting up Confidents that can rank up? Did they make points carry over? Sure doesn’t seem like it.

    • if you turn right in Mementos youll run into Mona as a car, you are chasing him, then he runs away straight so you run straight and then youll find him again he crashes run straight and then that leads to a new cut scene. I hope that helps.

  16. Not sure how you’re expecting to complete “Winners Don’t Use Cheats” when that requires talking to the Tower confident and coming back to Mementos.

    • The guide addresses this…
      “Rank B: Winners Don’t Use Cheats
      Location: Akzeriyyuth 5
      This is a scripted and unwinnable battle
      Guard for 3 turns and then, use a normal attack”

  17. Hey was just wondering, is there a reason we’re doing affinity readings for confidants that are already at the rank up point? I thought points didn’t transfer over from rank to rank, unless that’s the case isn’t it a waste of yen?

    • There’s a lot of money wasting for these readings. There are several for Mishima who doesn’t even rely on points in the first place.

  18. 9/4
    Go to Shibuya Drink Stand
    Buy a drink (Knowledge +2)
    Additional +1 Knowledge boost due to Luck Reading (Visible note)
    There’s an error here too, the drink augment kindness(already maxed out) for me and not knowledge.

  19. “Spend time with Yusuke
    Use phone or map to quick travel
    Duplicate and receive Masukunda skill card”I’ve followed this guide to the letter and i don’t remember talking about this.I don’t have a Masukunda skill card, so i can’t duplicate it, and i can’t seem to be able to itemize a Persona which will give me that result as well.I’m stuck?

  20. spotted an issue with the linkage, you have it set to link to the next palace, but it links back to futabas instead
