Marie does have a Max Social Link in my game. Upon visiting the Velvet Room around January 1st or 2nd, I believe, I was prompted by Margaret to have her take me to Marie, even though it was dangerous, since she had left the Velvet Room, or decline. I declined due to thinking I could come back and renew the dialog choice through the menus in the Velvet Room as I wasn't sure at the time what would happen depending on my decision. I lost track of time and a few days passed.
A few days later, Marie came to me in a dream saying she would now be removed from my memory. At that point I knew I had probably screwed something up.
Upon looking it up, I am seeing conflicting information. I am currently on January 10th, also my last supplemental save was back in early December, I have since gained 10 levels and did the grind to level 99 across my characters and my main Personas. So reverting back to that save would kill my soul.
My questions are:
-Come February, when Marie's bonus dungeon becomes available, I think around the time of the ski trip, will that dungeon become available to me, or am I boned because of not picking the dialog choice to be taken to Marie by Margaret? At the current date I'm on, January 10th, once entering the Velvet Room, there is zero mention of Marie, even when going through the menus within the Velvet Room.
-If I am boned...and the bonus dungeon will not become available, are there any other dungeons that I can play towards or is the rest of the game just dialog and designed for the player to finish up things like reading books and maxing out Social Links, etc?
Any info would be much appreciated! Thank you!
If you want the dungeon you have to reset the save and talk to Margaret again. The grind can be easier if you pick a persona with mass dark/light spells that insta kill shadows. You can even go to a dungeon solo with such a persona and lvl up your mc super fast since all the exp instead of being shared across your party will go to him. (I did this in Nanako's
dungeon and leveled up fast).
For your last question, the game has one more dungeon and even some extra content in ng+ but the ng+ stuff is a REALLY long and tedious path.
I'd suggest reseting the save and playing through Marie's storyline properly, otherwise you'd miss out on a great dungeon they made just for this version of the game.
