Persona 3 Reload - Month 04 Walkthrough

Welcome to the first month of Persona 3! The game goes through days on which you can do different activites to raise certain bonds and skills, or you can visit the dungeon (Tartarus) where you can progress. The idea of the guide is to point you what to do on every given date to get most out of it. By following this guide you should unlock all trophies and needed stuff to complete 100% of the game.

During the first month you will unlock a couple of new bonds, raise Courage skill to level 2, and reach level 22 in Tartarus. 


  • Not much you can do during this date. It serves as a tutorial day where you choose your name, how to save etc...


  • It's your first day in school! Explore the school a bit if you want, and at the end you will have to return to your dorm where you can end the day.


  • Afternoon
    • Question Answer: "Vivid carp streamers." During the class you will be asked to help your class colleague. Answering with correct answer during certain situations will rise your social stats. Make sure to answer correctly.

    • Answer with "Stay Awake in class for Academic Points +.
  • Dark Hour

  • Not much you can do on this day. Enjoy it however you'd like.


  • Afternoon

  • Dark Hour
    • Tartarus Tutorial. Make sure you open all chests and if prompted by Shuffle Chance after a battle, go with either Persona or Money. You will need some money soon.


  • Afternoon
    • Answer with "Stay Awake" for Academics +.
  • After School
    Do not buy weapons during the Police Station story parts. You need the 3000 yen for the Arcade. After the Police Station you will be able to spend your after school hours as you'd like to. Head to Iwatodai Strip Mall (go to map) and Buy a Weird Takoyaki for 400 Yen from Octopia for. If you lack the funds, you can buy it on another day, but you should have enough.
    Go to Paulownia Mall, Game Parade Arcade place and choose to play "House of the Deceased" for 3000 yen. Courage +
  • Evening
    Head to Tartarus. This means you will enter the Dark Hour and explore the dungeon for the first time. I advise you to buy some healing items for SP, you will need that in order to reach the first barrier in the dungeon and to grind/farm a bit.
  • Dark Hour
    Make sure to reach Floor 22 of the dungeon, and try to level up your team up to level 11 at least (you will need to be at this level for some fusions). Make sure to obtain an Odd Morsel item, it comes in treasure chests in the dungeon. Also, make sure to Obtain 40,000 Yen worth of materials. (You can save before leaving Tartarus and sell your  materials on the next day. If they sell for the required amount, you can continue, if not, load your save and collect more).
    On floor 22 you can find Old Document 01 key item. It's almost impossible to miss it.
    Obtain the Personas Ara Mitama, Omoikane, Pixie and Forneus. (Ara Mitama, Forneus and Pixie have a card, but you can also fuse them if you can’t find their card. I advise you to fuse whatever you get in the Velvel Door on the 1st floor to get new personas. Using the "Search" option you can easily fuse personas to get the ones you don't have. Also, make sure to register  them when you arrive, so you can summon leveled up personas and fuse them to carry better  skills when fusing).
    Money tip -  Repeat floor 1-5 while killing all enemies and collecting all items through the dungeon. After fights if the Shuffle Time ocurrs, choose Money card to get money. It will take 1-2h to farm enough materials and money to have 40k on the next day.
    Floor tips - always attack with Weak element, have multiple personas on yourself to have more choices. Pixie will get Zing (lightning) magic when you level her up a bit, or you can fuse Omoikane for that. It shouldn't be a big problem to reach floor 22, but note your SP and heal when you need to. Every 5 floors there are teleports which you can use to get back to floor 1 and back where you left of.
