  • WatcherWorks

    You actually get the Leblanc Curry ability at Rank 4.

  • Check Yo’self

    Rank 7
    You might be right. +3

    • Mike Mitchell

      Only if you have a Persona of the Heirophant family.

  • Brian Rodriguez

    Best dad in SMT so far.

  • MuAHAha010

    I love how Rank 7 requires max Kindness to initiate, and rewards you with +3 Kindness after the fact. GEE THANKS OJIISAN.

    • Azlan Wake

      Really stupid if you ask me,Like why don’t the others that isn’t maxed out like Guts or Knowledge get a boost

      • Mike Mitchell

        …because both Guts *and* Knowledge can and were maxed out for a lot of players by the time they maxed their Kindness. Your personal experience with the game is not reflective of everyone else’s.

        • Akeyla White

          There’s a 100% chance you have max kindness at that point. It’s not guaranteed people have maxed anything else. Points in literally anything other than kindness would at least serve a chance at being useful.

        • lopalop2

          But the only skill that is *DEFINITELY* maxed out is the one it gives you, so it still makes sense for something else to be given

    • Also its +3 if you have a persona and pick the “You might be right” choice.

  • TheMortalOne

    Someone already wrote, but rewriting it for empahsis. Curry is unlocked at rank 4, not 3

  • Brian Hafey

    Rank 8, you only get 2 points per response with a Hierophant persona equipped

  • Shokrum

    it should be pointed out, you can increase your bond with Boss when he doesn’t have the the card over head by brewing coffee. with the corresponding persona, it gives two notes.

  • If you do something extra before max rank…minor spoiler?
    If you choose futaba for romance Sojiro comments on it.
