TheGamer’s Persona 5 Royal 100% Completion Walkthrough: October

Welcome to TheGamer’s Persona 5 Royal walkthrough. Here, we’re gonna be guiding you through all ten playable months of the game, making sure you’ll make it to the true ending with all confidant ranks and social stats maxed out— not to mention popping that shiny platinum on your first run of the game.

Going month by month, this guide will include:

  • Month overview
  • Notes on restricted/limited time events
  • Daily activity guide
  • Mementos and Palace notes
  • Recommendations/tips for combat optimization.

A few things to note going into this walkthrough:

  • This walkthrough is a modified version of this guide, optimized for further efficiency and combat effectiveness.
  • All confidant rank ups are dependent on you bringing a persona of a matching arcana when spending time with them. With the exception of Rank 1 and Rank 10, if you forget to do this even once it’ll set your schedule back— sometimes catastrophically, depending on the confidant. Make sure you’re keeping track of your personae. Reminders will be given when your only opportunity to stock a matching persona is the night before.
  • However, the Sun and Moon confidants do not require matching personae.
  • Reminders will be included when your only opportunity to prep a persona for an event is the night before.
  • This walkthrough is based on normal difficulty— you might find yourself having a hard time keeping up on higher difficulty modes.
  • As it’s not possible to 100% the Thieves Den achievements on your first run, we’ll be guiding you through popping as many of them as possible, but it will not be a main focus like the PS4 trophies.
  • This guide will be running on the assumption that you’re choosing a platonic route with all the romanceable characters to accomodate for everyone— if you find yourself progressing faster with your romanced confidant than the guide plans for, use the extra day as a free slot.
  • HOWEVER, we recommend romancing at least one teammate to acquire the PS4 trophy, even if you decide to reload and proceed with the platonic route.
  • Story-locked confidant ranks will not be included in the monthly exit stats.

All set? Let’s get started.

October

October is one of the most cutscene-heavy months, so be ready to take in big story segments. Other than that, you’ll just be finishing off maxing your social stats and working on your confidants.

There are two limited events that’ll happen in October and November: going to Asakusa with Noir and Destinyland with Shinya. Both of these are simple affinity events that give you a room decoration, so we’ve foregone them in the interest of maxing your confidants ASAP, but it’s not impossible for you to diverge slightly from the schedule if you’re set on getting them.

For Noir’s gift, you’ll simply have to avoid reaching Devil rank 9 before Nov. 5th in order to receive an invitation from her that night. You’ll have some free nights to catch up later.

Shinya’s gift is much harder: the outing to Destinyland is only available on Oct. 10th, 30th, and Nov 3rd. In addition to that, it must be a non-rank up event between rank 6 and 7 OR between rank 9 and 10 on Nov. 3rd only. In addition to that, it must be the second time you’ve gone on a non-rank up event with him. As this requires a bit of deliberate slowing down of his confidant line, we’ve foregone it in the interest of time.

Additionally, we will no longer be tracking increases for already maxed out social stats.

If you haven’t gone around and bought all the available books from Shibuya, Shinjuku, and Jinbocho yet, this is your reminder to do so.

October 4th

  • Daytime: Buy medicine and equipment as necessary. Get money and alarm readings from Chihaya. Secure infiltration route.

(Note: If you don’t have three or four SP Adhesive 3’s yet, be sure to stock up now and stick them on all your main magic users, as this palace has a lot of shadows with really annoying physical resistances/immunities. Make sure you have easy access to fire, wind, and psychic skills as well, since those are the main weaknesses of the mini-bosses.

The airlock puzzles are a pain in the ass, but not too complex; just don’t forget to pick up the will seed before moving on.)

  • Nighttime: Call Kawakami. Hanged Max (Proficiency Max)

October 5th

  • Class reading: The ABC’s of Crafting*

(*Unofficial translation. This is a book purchased from Shinjuku that will double the amount of infiltration tools you can create in one sitting.)

  • 0, 0
  • 2, 3, 3
  • 3, 2, 3

(Note: we promise this has a point. It unlocks the maid cafe so you can progress the twins’ outing events, as well as working towards getting the trophy for ordering from their special menu.)

October 6th

  • Train reading: Free

(From here on out, there aren’t any books that are required to keep on schedule, so you have a few options. You can read books to open up locations where you can receive room decorations from confidants, or focus on reading minigame technique books. We recommend using this time to read all the available books from Jinbocho, as completing the old man’s catalogue will unlock a special book that opens up more Technical combinations in combat.)

  • Class answer: Joseph-Ignace Guillotine (Knowledge +1)
  • Daytime: Re-check your equipment and medicine. Send calling card.
  • Nighttime: Make infiltration tools.

(Note: if you’re not hurting for lockpicks, you can use this time however you’d like.)

October 7th

  • Daytime: Clear palace.

(Note: As before, make sure you’re bringing in access to fire, wind, and psi skills, as the boss battle involves a rotation of previous mini-bosses. We recommend bringing personae or teammates with access to Dekaja and Dekunda, as the boss battle involves an aggravating amount of buffs/debuffs from the opposing side.)

(Note: in the coming weeks, there will be many points at which you’ll be confined to Leblanc for the night: pick up protein for training, books for reading, games for playing, etc. to fill up your time. If you haven’t bought it out of curiosity already, buy the broken laptop from the secondhand shop as well as PC repair tools from Akihabara so you can fix it during one of these nights.)
