Confidant Guide – Part Four

Persona 5 Guide

This is the fourth part of our unofficial guide for how to successfully complete the Confidants in Persona 5. 

Each of these optional side stories require you to choose your dialogue wisely to ensure that you can level up your relationships with these valuable NPC’s.

Persona 5

As you reach each rank of the various Confidants, you will increase your EXP bonus created during Persona Fusions with a Persona that shares their assigned Arcana.

You will also gain specific abilities that will aid you on your journey through the struggles of balancing the real world and your activities as a Phantom Thief.

If you want to increase your Ranks more effectively, it is recommended to have a Persona that matches your Confidant’s Arcana as you will gain more points from selected choices.

Only the best choices for each decision are listed to ensure an efficient playthrough.
