  • Hugo Rousseau

    Probably the worst confidant.. Unless you are a completitionist or interested into her or her story, you should just skip her. her abilities are useless, you can easily just craft items that will do the same if you REALLY need the effect.

    • Henry Olguin

      Look at all that salt.
      Have you not understood the core game mechanic of arcana burst?

      • Bayu Nugraha

        don’t care, i’ll do anything for my charm to be max

        • Henry Olguin

          Fair enough, point is, some people will wanna do the guide 😛

        • Ryan Smith

          You’re right. I’m just realizing i would have much rather spent my evenings with Ichiko than going to the bath house so I could have been boosting my arcana burst while improving my charm at the same time. Though I will admit her benefits are not all that useful. Especially considering I rarely take more than one day to locate the treasure in a dungeon.

    • Judge Rhymehold

      Yeah. Useless abilities

    • Zephyr_Weiss

      What’s so useless about getting THE most powerful persona in the whole game? It requires you to complete all confidants, dumbass

  • Jaldaboath I. Irghen

    I can’t seem to get her past rank 5 is there any requirement I’m not seeing?
