Proficiency Social Stat Guide in Persona 5 Royal

Proficiency is a social stat that deals with mechanical skills like crafting resources, repairing broken items, and hitting home runs. Make it a habit to craft infiltration tools as they increase the stat and provide staple consumables for heists. The higher your proficiency and the more tools you craft, the faster you will be able to create them. Since most of the activities that raise Proficiency don’t provide other social stat gains, you need to invest in this stat early on to unlock more efficient activities like part-time jobs.
