For Persona 5 Royal players, this is a guide on an incredibly broken method of grinding money in the third palace. It takes a little bit of effort to set up but once you do you can grind theoretically forever.
– Kaneshiro’s palace. While I haven’t tested it myself, I assume you could probably use this method in mementos, specifically the Path of Kaitul
– A Persona with Frei. For this guide, I am using Suzaku. You could optimize your persona choice further by choosing one with the Atomic Bloodline trait.
– A ~Level 25 party
– Yoshida’s confidant at Rank 3
– One SP Adhesive 3, equipped on Joker. Having them equipped on the rest of the party is always beneficial, but not necessary.
– No skills that resist sleep (optional)
– Some luck and patience
Step 1: The Setup
Once you get to this area, start ambushing the normal enemies. You do not need to ambush the dog or the strong enemy, just the normal ones are needed.
When you ambush the shadow, you are looking for an encounter comprised entirely of high pixies. If you aren’t fighting a group comprised of only high pixies, be sure to escape asap. You can choose to fight, but it’ll only slow you down.
Below is what you are looking for
If you run out of normal enemies, you can head to the elevator where the dog patrols and ride it up and back down to respawn the enemies
Once you have your high pixies ready to fight, you can move on to the next step.
Step 2: Setup: The Squeakuel
Start by killing any disaster shadows. Kill them however you want, but avoid using guns.
Once the disaster shadow is dead, focus on knocking down all but one of the High Pixies using your guns. Use basic attacks to kill them until there is only one High Pixie left, then knock it down using guns. (If you’re out of ammo, see fun facts below, then come back up here).
After knocking down the pixies, ask them for money. When they give you money, ask for more. Keep asking until they get back up to attack you.
Fun fact about High Pixies: they cannot attack. They can cast dorima, diarama, and pulpina (though I’ve never seen one use it). So when the High Pixie gets up, it will do one of those things, or summon another High Pixie. We will be using this fact to our advantage
When this happens, use your guns again and repeat until you run out of ammo. Once your ammo is depleted, or if you’re already out of ammo, take out your persona with Frei.
Another fun fact about High Pixies: they’re weak to nuke
Knock down the High Pixie and demand money from it.
Step 3: The Grind
To grind, knock down the Pixie using Joker’s Frei and ask it for money until it gets up. If it summons another Pixie, kill whichever has the lower health using the rest of your party’s basic melee attacks. No matter what though, use Joker’s turn to knock down all the pixies and beg for money.
Sometimes, you may end up with three enemies on the battlefield. If this happens, just focus on one with the rest of your party members and slowly work your way back to having a single target.
The reason this grinding method works is because of the SP adhesive 3. Because Frei only costs 4 SP, you will always have more SP at the end of a turn than when you started, allowing you to continue knocking down pixies ad infinitum. If you don’t want to use the SP adhesive, see below.
If an enemy puts a party member to sleep using dorima, don’t worry! They will regain health and SP without ever being attacked, and will eventually wake up refreshed and ready to smack another pixie. You could even use this grinding method as a slightly inconvenient and slow way to to refill your party’s SP if you need to.
If Joker gets put to sleep, just guard until he wakes up. If you don’t have the SP adhesive 3, you will need him to fall asleep in order to regain the SP needed to grind infinitely.
Once you get the hang of it, you’ll enter a rhythm and the grind will go on with very minimal effort. I recommend muting the game and watching a youbtube video or listening to music while you grind.
Step 4: Profit
