First Palace.. I went prepared for weapons, armors, guns but now almost no SP for all my team so I should have invested in SP regain items. Now I just defeated Heavenly Punisher and I don't know if I should keep going or not. I want to finish the Palace as quick as possible to handle the social life without pressure but I read that you need 3 days minimum to finish the Palace.

You're fine to go as far as you can go each time you're in. The 3 days is a story contrivance, you need to find the treasure (day 1), then send a calling card (day 2) which triggers the boss fight the next day (day 3). You can do that process as early as you want.

No, other than pressing through the dialogue quite a bit because I read them quick. I even did quite a bit of mementoing.

So I'm at the end of the 3rd Palace. It's amazing how likeable I find the cast while my feelings towards them are always mirrored by the party. I hated Yusuke and Makoto at first but once they join you and you actually get to know them they've both been in my parties.
I constantly swap my party so everyone gets time. Except for Morgana. Fuck Morgana!

That's insane. I was like that time in September, then ended the game at 110 hours. :O

You been doing mementos? Confidant quests? Stat increases? Or just playing the story forward?

Even my brother has a similar time. I guess people just read fast or skip voice over too? *shrugs*

My friend beat the game in 69 hours, so I don't think it's impossible. It all comes down to your playstyle and how much of the mementos you explored.

I finished everything including mementos requests and I beat the game in a little less than 100 hours on normal difficulty.

How long do you spend in palaces? I think I spent roughly 3 hours for the longest one. I did all the memento quests that I get too.

Remember your stats?

I did normal @ 110 hours. 5 max stats, 14 max confidants. Lv 76. I felt quite happy with that result. :D

Just beat the boss of the third dungeon: Once I was finally able to recruit an Angel, the dungeon got pretty easy from that point on. Orobas were kicking my ass before
that. Surprisingly, Kaneshiro was really easy for me.

I'm also about 90% sure that the other person in the metaverse is Akechi. He seems way too Adachi-like, and we know he can understand Morgana.

Now I just need to go through the remaining days until the confession/whatever it is this time.

Certainly a few hours, because I try to beat them on the same day I go in. I remember one taking me an evening because I got a little lost in its puzzle. :(

Pretty similar, actually. I don't remember the number of maxed confidants, but I got every girl and party member maxed at least. I have maxed all the 5 stats as well, and I was level 75 when I faced the final boss.

Hmm, fair enough. I think normal is just still too easy that you can pretty much blast through it. Even where I'm at I'm just brute forcing my way through every fight pretty easily lol.

That's pretty close. I guess we can assume the time difference would be variables like how fast people read the none voiced lines and time spent in dungeons/mementos?

At the tv station Morgana is the only one who mentioned pancakes, which is what Akechi commented about.

Barely a minor spoiler

It's Makoto's ability and normally you should get it around level 50.

Yeah, and I think it's mostly mementos. From around the last three mementos zones or so, I started to skip everything and went straight to find the request target and the ladder down to the lower level. I found the loots useless and the exp gained insignificant. The best place to get exp is still certain shadow(s) in the latest dungeons.

The best way to get EXP is fighting against the Reaper in Mementos during flu seasons. There is a big chance it will be in despair and you will only have to wait 3 turns so that it dies normally. And it won't attack you.

Doing that with moon confidant ranked to 10 will net you 76,000 XP for everyone. Enough to cover 20-40 levels at low level of you do it 3-4 times and enough to take you 10 levels with two tries if you are around 60.

Wow, I guess I missed that.

But overall I never felt the need to grind at all. When I entered a new palace I was usually underleveled, but starting from the middle my level caught up or even surpassed most shadows there. I reached level 75 in the end without having to grind for levels at all, I just played and killed most shadows I saw naturally. I think this is a good design for a genre that's infamous for its grindy nature. This is also why I enjoyed the game so much until the end.
