May events in Persona 5
Persona 5 follows a fairly strict calendar, and working out what's best to do on any given day can be a little tricky. We've created a path that, if followed correctly, should allow you to maximise all the social links with Confidants, max out your Social Stats (some days provide better gains to Guts, Knowledge etc than others) and see the bulk of the game's content in a single playthrough.
If you're already part way through then we'll still give you pointers to some efficient levelling opportunities, as well as ways to tackle each Palace and more.
