Persona 5 Royal Confidant Guide- Meetup Locations, Date & More

Confidants or Cooperations – whatever you call them – are an important aspect of Persona 5 Royal. They have been an important Persona mechanic ever since their introduction in Person 3. Back then, they were named Social Links.

These Confidants are people you meet throughout the year in Persona 5 Royal. And developing a close relationship with them will help you get that complete ending.

You can spend time with them and give gifts to improve their Rank (improve the relationship).

With your Confidant’s rank going up, they provide you with new abilities, unlock new playable missions, and even open up some new cutscenes that are exclusive to Person 5 Royal Confidants.

Spoiler Alert: If you get the rank of female Confidants to a certain level, it unlocks the possibilities of romantic relationships. And let’s just say, that’s a whole new experience.

With a Confidant of each Arcana available in Persona 5 Royal, you’ll have your hands full. And it’ll take you months before you get some decent returns from a Persona 5 Confidant.

So, along with a Person 5 Royal Confidant Guide, we’ll also tell the ones you should pay close attention to.

Heads Up: Persona 5 Royal has exclusive Confidants that weren’t in Persona 5. Unlocking them will bring plenty of not-before-seen gameplay.

Now, let’s get going.

P5R Confidant Guide – 3 Confidants To Max Out Early!

Which P5R Confidants you focus on is totally up to you and your playing style.

However, there are a few that you should prioritize, solely because they’re time-sensitive and offer great rewards.

1. Fortune

Fortune is super easy to max out because of easy availability so you should max it out as quickly as you can.

Not because it offers the best rewards but because it can help boost your relationship with other Confidants. Let’s just say it brings a slice of good fortune.

2. Temperance

Time is of the essence in P5R because there is never enough of it. However, maxing out Temperance will give you some extra time. Plus, you have to max it out before it becomes unavailable after mid-November.

3. Sun

Another Confidant that you have to max out before mid-November or you’ll miss out. Plus, it makes dungeon exploring easier thanks to Shadow Negotiation.
