  • Welcome to a new Persona guide! This time Atlus made (remade) Persona 3, and it's awesome! There is only a male protagonist storyline, and this guide will be focused, of course, on that version of the game.

    Step 1: Follow the Walkthrough, complete Elizabeth’s Requests as you progress

    For the sake of simplicity, you can just follow the walkthrough that is divided between the months. You will be notified of every trophy along the way so you don't have to worry about missing a thing. You will need to complete at least 82 of Elizabeth’s Requests as you play, so make sure you do that (but I will also note that).

    There are some combat and miscellaneous trophies in the game, I will also note them down in months walthrough topics for you, so you can think about them as you play.

    Steps to note while you play to minimize the grind later

    Obtained 10 Major Arcana during Shuffle Time - Shuffle time can randomly spawn after winning battles. If you finish the fight with All-out-attack, there is a higher chance to activate Shuffle time.
    Obtained 10 Personas during Shuffle Time - Same as for the one above; simply get personas during Shuffle Time. Personas that you're already holding will NOT count towards this trophy.
    Initiated 50 Chance Encounters - These are basically an pre-emptive strikes or advantages in battles. Strike an enemy from the back with your sword to start the fight in this condition and do it for 50 times.
    Defeat a rare, golden enemy - You will be introducted of golden enemies in Tartarus. You need to defeat one before the enemy flees from the battle.
    Performed 50 All-Out Attacks - When you attack enemies with Weakness element, you will leave them in vulnerable state. When you do that to all enemies, you can perform this attack. Do this every time as it increases chances for Shuffle Time.
    Discovered and conquered 10 Monad doors - Monad doors appear randomly in Tartarus. You need to enter, defeat the boss inside and you can then take a treasure.
    Opened 50 treasure chests - Simply open chests as you progress the Tartarus.
    Used a total of 50 Twilight Fragments - Twilight Fragmets can be a random Tartarus reward, or you can collect them by visiting the Velvet Room, or simply by picking them up from the floor on certain locations at certain parts of the game. You can then use them to open locked chests in Tartarus, or to activate the clock.

    Step 2: Tartarus cleanup on Day 1/21 – 1/31 (the point of no return)

    At this point you should only need to unlock Reaper Reaped and Path to Salvation trophies. Do them between 1/21 – 1/31 (1/31 is the final day of the game and the point of no return).

    You can grind by defeating the Reaper while using the experience cards if you have some from the Shuffle Time to make things faster. As you need to fuse Messiah, you will need to be at a certain level, so the Reaper is your best choice for grinding levels. At this point you can complete the compendium (although you don't need every persona, just Messiah).

    Step 3: Defeat the Final Boss

    After everything else is unlocked and done, simply defeat the Final Boss. After watching the ending you should earn the platinum trophy. What a journey!

    Watched the good ending.

    On 12/31 Thursday, during Evening:

    • After entering your room, select these options to stay on the Good Ending path. (Answer with option 1, 1). This is the only ending path you need for the trophy.

    After that, simply finish the game and you will unlock this trophy.

    The Fool's Journey     Obtained 10 Major Arcana during Shuffle Time.

    Major Arcana card are special cards that you can select during Shuffle time (they are the ones with special pictures/arcana). You need 10 in sum, which shouldn't be that hard considering you will visit Tartarus like 10 times. I had this done after second visit.

    Distinguished Visitor  
    Invited Elizabeth to your room.

    Finish 82 Requests from Elizabeth and ask her out during Daytime. This is missable due to some of her requests being missable, so make sure you follow the walkthrough where all requests are noted down.

    Top of the Class  
    Aced an exam.

    There will be couple of exam days during semesters, so make sure you answer every question correctly. By simply following the walkthrough you will find all of the answers in there.

    A Legacy of Friendships  
    Maxed out all Social Links.

    Social Links are arcana links that you unlock during daytime/evening. You need to reach level 10 in all categories, so for that you need to mostly follow the walkthrough and do what you can on each day. 

    Make sure to rescue all missing persons (it's all noted down in walkthrough), as some of them are required to be rescued because they are needed for Social Links.

    People Person  
    Unlocked all Social Links.

    For this one you only need to unlock all Social Links, not max them out. By following the walkthrough you will max them out.

    Make sure to rescue all missing persons (it's all noted down in walkthrough), as some of them are required to be rescued because they are needed for Social Links.

    That Special Someone  
    Nurtured a romance.

    There will usually be romance answers when maxing our Social Links with girls. Usually around level 9 of the link you will be able to choose a romance answer (the game will notify you about a imporant decision). Make sure to date 1 girl per playthrough in order not to mess up with the ending (I don't know if it's possible, but I've never tested it). Simply follow the walkthrough where date anwers will be noted down.

    A Newfound Strength  
    Awakened all teammates' ultimate Personas.

    Automatic story-related trophy.

    The Power of Choice     Obtained 10 Personas during Shuffle Time.

    Have room on your Persona deck, and during Shuffle Time select persona 10 times. This should come naturally and early in the game.

    There's No "I" in "Team"     Performed a Shift.

    When you attack an enemy with their weakness, you can press L2 to perform a Shift and change to some other character. Do so to unlock the trophy.

    The Strength of Our Hearts  
    Used all teammates' Theurgy.

    Theurgy (Ultimate, Limit Breaks) from your team members will be unlocked during the story. Make sure you use them all in Tartarus. Be sure to use the Theurgy Skill for Shinjiro before 10/4 as you will not be able to use it afterwards. The rest can be done at any moment, and all of this is noted in the walkthrough.

    Extracurricular Excellence  
    Rescued a missing person.

    Missing persons will start appearing in Tartarus from a certain date. Everything is noted down in walkthrough. Just make sure to rescue all missing persons on each Tartarus visit, they give you solid rewards, plus, some of them are required to be rescued because they are needed for Social Links.

    Get a Load of Those Numbers!  
    Dealt over 999 damage in a single attack (All-Out Attacks excluded).

    This can be done easily when you fight a big rare hand enemy. Lower its defense, raise your attack and attack with either some Theurgy Ultimate Attack, or with some multi-hit attack. Or, when you fight the Reaper, you can use Armageddon Theurgy to deal 9999 damage to him.

    Shrouded Assassin  
    Initiated 50 Chance Encounters.

    Attack an enemy from behing with attack button while in Tartarus. Do it 50 times.

    The Thrill of the Hunt  
    Defeated a rare, golden enemy.

    Rare enemies appear in Tartarus. If you get Rarity Fortune reading before entering Tartarus from the fortune teller in Club Espanade, you can raise chances of encountering rare enemies during the visit. This should happen on your first visit (the best way to grind is to defeat rare enemies).

    Making the Dream Work     Performed 50 All-Out Attacks.

    When you strike all enemies with their weknesses or land critical hits, they will be on the floor. You can then perform All-Out Attack. Do so 50 times.

    Glimpse of the Depths  
    Discovered and conquered 10 Monad doors.

    Monar Doors will be introduced on higher Tartarus floors. You need to enter, beat all boss enemies in there, and collect the treasure at the end. You need to do this 10 times, so do this ocassionaly to get it done.

    Briefcase Burglar     Opened 50 treasure chests.

    One of the easiest trophies while in Tartarus is this one. You will open mora than 200 chests by the end of the game.

    Shattered Plumes  
    Used a total of 50 Twilight Fragments.

    When you talk to Elizabeth after completing some of her requests, she will rewards you with fragmets. When you fuse and collect more personas, you will get even more fragments in Velvel Room. Spend these to open locked chests on boss floors in Tartarus, and you should spend more than 50. You can spend as much as you'd like, if you want to open everything later on.

    The Horror of the Shade     Encountered a Dark Zone in Tartarus.

    Ocassionaly, some floors in Tartarus can appear as a Dark Zone - they will be complately in the dark. By just repeating floors via teleport, and climbing up, there is a change this will happen. It should happen naturally as you explore.

    Reaper Reaped  
    Defeated the Reaper.

    Defeat the Reaper (just stand still on any floor with enemies until he appears). By fusing Helel and Satan you will learn Armageddon Theurgy skill (you need to be at least level 83 with Shuffle Time Arcana boost card that let's you fuse +5 levels personas from your level while in Tartarus to fuse Helel), which can anihilate Repear easily in 1-hit. You will get around 10 levels if you're around level 83. You can defeat the Repear again if you want to grind a bit.

    I did this on my last Tartarus visit, and you will also be noted about it in the walkthrough.

    The First of Many     Performed a Dyad Fusion.

    Fuse 2 personas to unlock the trophy. This should come naturally.
