Go talk to the Velvet Twin (can't remember which) that's standing outside the Velvet Room. They fully heal your HP and SP for free. The last area isn't so bad once you make use of that.

End game is the easiest part of the game. You can go to caroline and refill all heath and SP and you should have stuff like concentrate/charge on ann and ryuji that can wreck enemies. Same goes for One Shot Kill for Haru.

A lot of people did. It's not well marked. You'd never think to check there and you honestly may not even see it when you go to the velvet room.

So I'm getting fairly far in just caught up with the interrogation, 11/20. This is my first Persona game, but it's my understanding in P4 that getting the good/true ending depended on some dialogue choices late in the game.

Is there a similar situation here? Not looking to get spoilered on anything, but is there something I should keep an eye open for that will determine if I get the proper ending stuff?

How did you manage that? Im at 8/5 and about to finish Futubas Palace and this has been my primary concern. I haven't started Iwai's because I don't have enough Guts yet but everyone is in the Level 3-6 range outside of like two of that are at Rank 7 and 8

This only applies to the last section of the game, and they made both attendants stand outside of the Velvet Room so it'd stick out more... But people still miss it.

So just random thing I found, I'm sure some know of it but its news to me:

P5's whole soundtrack is on itunes ($29.99 for the whole shebang)

I only just now discovered it since I was looking up "Life Will Change" (a singer I like did a cover of it and released it) and went "wait, why is there so many P5 lis-OH WOW".

Nice surprise!

On my first playthrough, I went all the way through Kamoshida's palace for the treasure run while avoiding as many battles as I could, and it was hype as fuck. It really got me in that Phantom Thief groove.

The later dungeons get a little too long to do this, though, so I usually just warped to a safe room near the middle.

The two confidants to prioritize are Fortune and Temperance. Fortune's Luck Reading is a big help for raising social stats (bigger than you'd anticipate) and Affinity Reading (gained at Rank 7) is monstrously powerful--it gives you affinity points for a character of your choice without costing any time, once per day. And Temperance just really helps out with extra time. The Rank 10 is especially nice--it allows you to go out at night after going to a Palace or Mementos.

I think the number one biggest thing that contributed to my success was Affinity Reading though.

HAHAH! THE IRONY! Haru just told me that and I saved then turned the game off. Lmao I had enough of Palace 5 of today. That really annoyed me. I'm like, "I've been fighting SP draining clowns all day and I'm still just halfway??? What is this? Kamoshida's Palace all over again?"

But then Morgana said it again... and again...

its pretty hard but yeah it can be done, first phase is the hardest imo since they use bullet and theres nothing you can do about that except pray to rngesus that you don't get hit.

Compendium, Social Stats , Money, Key Items that unlock mechanics and equipment (but not consumables except those you got after the final​ boss).

Nope, you even get the Tutorial popups again. The only new stuff is Satanael being fusable and the battle with the Twins

Weird, I didn't have much issue doing persona negotiations in the first 2 palaces, but now in the third one, it feels incredibly vague.

For a Irritable persona, I'm supposed to pick the 'serious' answer, but I really have no clue which one is supposed to be the 'serious' choice. I'm hesitant to even bother now, since messing it up means the fight continues, and a certain enemy in this palace can use their insta-kill light attack on MC for a quick game over. I have the party member skills to step in for failed negotiations, but doesn't seem to trigger that often.

Got her to rank 7 and used it. Do I have to wait for it to take effect? I was hoping it would be immediate

Uh ok, I expect some backlash but I had to put my thoughts down, and I've gave Persona 5 about 10ish hours now (passed the first palace) and I just don't think it's much of my cup of tea =/
FWIW, I've never played persona before, and have only ever played one other traditional/old school jrpg before, and that was back in the ps1 days (FF8, didn't like it either).

I don't think tt's a genre that I find interesting in gameplay terms, but I thought to give this a bash cos much of everything else about it did tick my interests, plus the huge acclaim helped too.

But yeah I don't like the combat gameplay; I had already somehow found myself underleveled on Easy mode, and struggling to progress through the 1st palace against the time limit.
So I put it on the Safety mode except now the game basically plays itself, and it's now just a very long and drawn out visual novel.

Well I can trade it in for most of the money back.
I fully expect comments telling me I played it wrong, and yeah I'm certain I have, but I can't say I am particularly bothered. Like I said I just wanted to put my thoughts down =/

Think it was about level 7, I think?

And I found that bout the time I got to the first mini-boss every enemy was a red highlight with the "third -eye", and I was struggling to get much progress by that point.

I didn't get it, by all accounts I hear of many clearing dungeons in a couple days at most, and I was going to take much longer, on easy =/

You get two questions per encounter, the first is supposed to let you feel out the style of answer that the Persona doesn't like. It's still weird and vague a lot of the time and if you guess wrong on the first question you still only have a 50/50 of guessing the "liked" response.

If you know an enemy can use Insta-kills of a specific element its probably a good idea to try and have a Persona that Resists that element at least.
