Persona 5 Confidant Guide – Sae, Igor, Morgana, and Sojiro 4

With the debut of Persona 3, Atlus managed to rework many of the ways progression is made in their demon summoning JRPG. Outside of battle stats and equipment, relationships and character attributes such as guts and charisma came into play. In conjunction with these new features, a new daily schedule filled with deadlines and events was added, giving players more to focus on outside of dungeon crawling. Persona 4 expanded slightly on all of these mechanics while adding new elements such as a weather system. Almost all of the previously used systems and more are present in Atlus’ newest and largest title to date, Persona 5.

Persona is a series where time plays a key role in story progression, and Persona 5 is no different. To maximize a play through of the game, every day needs to be pushed to its fullest. With so many characters you can get to know, and some giving major bonuses as you level up, it is hard to know where to start. That is why we have built a handy guide that should help you progress through the game and make the most of your relationships.

While some Confidant will progress automatically, and others will be locked off until later in the story, many can be powered though early on. This guide will help you select the best responses to dialogue and pick the right gifts to give you that edge on your way through Persona 5. When you see the possibility of achieving a +3 on a dialogue option, ensure you do it. It will help the relationship evolve faster, and will give a bonus that can be invaluable on your mission of justice.

Please note, while we try to avoid major spoilers, due to the nature of the guide, there are minor spoilers, so please keep this in mind when utilizing the guide.
