Persona 5 Confidants Guide – Where to Find, Ranks, Abilities, Presents

Persona 5 Confidants Guide to help you learn everything you need to know about Confidants, their Arcanas, locations, and abilities.

Confidants in Persona 5 can essentially be considered as Social Link from Persona 3 and Persona 4. There are, however, a few changes. It’s a good idea to build relationships with Confidants as they provide social and battle bonuses.

Another reason why you should do it is because of Arcana ranks. Increasing Arcana unlocks abilities such as follow-up attacks, increased power, etc. Apart from this, it also unlocks romance options and new cutscenes.
