Best Ways to Reach Max Social Stats in P3R


Here is how you can boost yourself to obtain max stats in Persona 3 Reload:

Plan Your Days

Juggling school, Tartarus, and Social Links can be hectic. Prioritize Social Link hangouts when available, but ensure enough time for studying and Tartarus runs to keep pace with the story.

Weekends are your golden opportunity! Dedicate entire days to specific Social Links or cram study sessions to maximize stat gains.

Pick Your Favorite Stat-Boosting Activities

Each Social Link offers stat rewards. Charm-focused links like Chihiro and Yuko thrive on fun activities, while Courage-based links such as Yukari and Aigis will appreciate brave choices.

On the other hand, if you want to excel at studies, then Academics-boosting links Mitsuru and Fuuka will reward your studying when you are able to answer questions correctly.

Pick Up Part-Time Work

Part-time jobs aren’t just for cash! Working part-time boosts stats alongside earning yen. The Cinema boosts Academics and Courage, while Chagall Cafe improves Charm and Courage. Choose wisely based on your needs.

Grab Some Late-Night Movies

This sounds like slacking, but movies offer surprising Academics and Charm boosts. Grab some popcorn and settle in for knowledge (and maybe a date!).

Play Arcade Games

Are you a horror game fanatic? Then, to the Arcade, you should run! And if you feel competitive and gain a stat boost by challenging others, then playing arcade games, especially fighting games, can be useful. They provide a hidden Courage boost. So, challenge your friends and sharpen your reflexes!

Get the Bookworm Bonus

Hit the library during your free time! Reading specific books raises both Academics and Charm, allowing you to multitask your stat growth.

Complete Wilduck Burger Challenges
