In Persona 5 hanging out with characters is the only way to rank up your level in each arcana type, which in turn bestows buffs during combat and grants access to new abilities. In this part of our Persona 5 confidants guide we'll show you the best, quickest way to improve your relationship with Makoto Niijima and increase the Priestess arcana rank.

Makoto is around in the daytime—usually on Mondays, Tuesdays and rainy days—and can be found outside of the Student Council office at Shujin Academy, outside of the school, or at the school subway station.

In order to maximise your Priestess confidant rank, or initiate a romantic relationship with Makoto, you'll need to know how to talk to her as selecting the correct conversation response is key to leveling up your social link quickly.

Note: To initiate this confidant you'll need to have a Knowledge rating of at least 3 (Scholarly)
