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

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 for 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 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.
  • Story-locked confidant ranks will not be included in the monthly exit stats.

All set? Let’s get started.

April

Those of you who’ve played the original P5 will know that April is the month of cutscenes. The game will ease you into the flow of things slowly, which means you won’t have as much freedom of choice/movement until the first palace infiltration starts in earnest.

There’s not much to keep in mind for April— you’re mostly going to be focusing on starting all the available confidants and starting to rank up your social stats.

April 12th

  • Class answer: Logic (Knowledge +1)
  • Daytime: Forced palace infiltration
  • Nighttime: unavailable

April 13th-14th

  • Story scripted events

April 15th

  • Daytime: Forced palace infiltration
  • Nighttime: Unavailable

(Note: Make sure you’re coming out of the palace with at least 1,500 yen, as you’ll need to buy some plant nutrients.)

April 16th

  • Story scripted events

April 17th

  • Daytime: Unavailable
  • Nighttime: Scripted tools crafting tutorial (Proficiency +2)

April 18th

  • Daytime: Take Pirate Legend out from the school library. Buy plant nutrients from the underground mall at Shibuya. Buy materials for crafting lockpicks from the secondhand shop in Yongen-Jaya(optional). Head to the clinic to talk to the doctor (Death rank 1, Guts +1).
  • Nighttime: Complete crossword on the first floor table (Knowledge +1). Clean your room (find Yongen Wanderer and On Modern Thought*)

*Unofficial translation

April 19th

  • Class answer: C (knowledge +1)
  • Daytime: Chariot 2 (matching persona not required):
  • 3, 2, 1
  • 0, 0
  • 1, 1
  • 1, 1, 1

(Numbers here refer to how many confidant points you’ll get for each dialogue option: for example, there are three response options in the first prompt of Chariot’s rank 2 event. You will get three points for the first, two for the second, and one for the third. To keep up with the schedule, pick the highest value option possible. Going forward, the values will be based on you having a matching persona in stock.)

  • Nighttime: Use plant nutrients on the plant in your room (Kindness +2). Craft lockpicks (Proficiency +2)

(Note: If you bought extra crafting materials to make two lockpicks, It’s possible for you to reload the tools crafting until you get a bonus lockpick, at which you’ll have enough to open every locked chest in the palace as well as getting a bonus proficiency point.)

April 20th

  • Read Pirate Legend on the train.
  • Daytime: Buy as many healing supplies as you can from the clinic. Secure infiltration route at Kamoshida’s palace.

(Note: It might be a bit hard trying to clear the entire palace in one go at this point— it is essential to the schedule, however. If you’re having trouble, go ahead and turn down the difficulty. Make sure you exit the palace with Berith registered for the Hierophant confidant.)
