Moon Phases

Shin Megami Tensei V - Moon Phase System

The Moon Phase cycles through a total of 16 moon phases. It begins at the New Moon state. Once the Moon has undergone 4 phases, the Moon state will reach a Half Moon. After 4 more phases (resulting in a total of 8), a Full Moon state occurs. From this point, the Moon Phase will start to “power down” by going through 8 more phases, ending in a New Moon state once again to complete the entire 16-phase cycle.

Note that the Moon Phase progresses when you are exploring the field and during battle which can create both advantageous and disadvantageous situations in the game.

Full Moon Phase Differences from Other SMT Games

Full Moon Phase does not affect the rarity of items obtained from chests.

Unlike previous SMT games, a Full Moon will not affect the rarity of items you get from treasure chests in Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance. The loot you get from opening chests is always the same regardless of moon phase.

Full Moon Phase does not affect the amount of Glory obtained from amalgams.

The Glory rewarded for finding amalgams is also fixed and will not increase if you interact with them during a Full Moon.
