Money Farming Guide
In Shin Megami Tensei V (SMT 5), essential features such as buying items from shops, fusing demons and essences, negotiating with enemy demons, and recovering HP and MP require money. Currency in the Netherworld is called Macca and is obtained from defeating enemies, selling items, and opening treasure chests throughout the game.
Tips for Farming Money
Subquests or side quests are good ways to earn Macca, especially during the early game stages. After clearing a subquest, NPCs will reward you with various items, some of which can be sold to earn Macca.
Some quest NPCs will also occasionally direct you to areas where powerful demons are encountered and will drop a hefty amount of Macca upon defeat.
Farm Saki Mitama (Gold)
Saki Mitama is a rare spirit that will sometimes be found roaming the various locations of the Netherworld. Defeating them allows you to obtain expensive items which can then be sold off for money.

Note that Mitama can sense danger quickly and will run away if you approach them. Because of this, try to ambush them from behind to engage them in battle.
Purchase the Mitama Dance of Wealth (2.99 USD)
Downloading the Mitama Dance of Wealth paid DLC allows you to increase the spawn rate of Saki Mitama in the game. After purchasing and installing the add-on, go to the game menu to toggle the chances of Saki Mitama appearing.
Relics are items that you can frequently obtain from vending machines while exploring the Netherworld. These do not have any particular use other than being sold off at Cadaver’s Hollow (Gustave‘s shop) for money. Note that relic gathering points will replenish over time so you can keep coming back to them to collect relics again to sell to Gustave.
Get Hand of God Miracle from Sophia
Be sure to acquire the Hand of God miracles from Sophia in the World of Shadows to increase the number of relics you can pick up at gathering points.

You can sell Beads, a consumable item that restores the HP of a single ally, for 1250 Macca each. Stockpiling a bunch of them as you go through the main story is useful for healing during emergency situations. If you do not need them, just sell them to earn money.
