Persona 4 Golden Guide

Items

p4g_items

This section is meant to compile all available items in Persona 4. In the game, all items (except weapons, armor, and accessories) are dumped into one big item menu. To make things easier to understand, I create several headers for the different item categories.

Items can be found through Exploring Dungeons, completing Side Quests, winning Battles, or simply from buying them at Shopping District, South.

Healing Items

There are a number of Healing Items in Persona 4. Some restore HP, some restore SP, some revive allies, and some heal Status Ailments.

These items can be found in Chests in The TV World, or they can be bought from the Shiroku Store in the Central Shopping District. Several drinks can also be bought from vending machines in the Central Shopping District.

Battle Items

Battle Items are items that can only be used while in a Battle against Shadows in The TV World. Some cause damage to Shadows, and some help allies.

These items can be found in Treasure Chests inside The TV World, won after battle, or bought fro the Shiroku Store in the Central Shopping District.

Dungeon Items

Dungeon Items are items that can only be used while in a “Dungeon” in The TV World. These can be obtained from Chests in Dungeons, the Shiroku Store in the Central Shopping District, and from defeating Shadows.

Item|Price|Description
Goho-M|950|Leave the Dungeon
Vanish Ball|950|100% chance of escaping a battle (some battles are inescapable).
Chest Key|N/A|A key to open locked treasure chests.
[/table]

Skill Cards

Skill Cards can be obtained randomly at the end of battles during Shuffle Times. They can also be obtained by drinking Coffee in Okina City with a Persona that knows a technique with a skill card icon.

Each skill card can be used to teach the Protagonist’s Personas a new technique. Make note: skill cards are one-time use items, and teaching a new attack will consume the card. Additionally, skill cards can be added to a registry in The Velvet Room. You will not receive anything for giving Marie your skill cards, but you will be able to buy as many of that skill card as you wish. The better the skill, the higher the price.

Materials

Materials are items obtained after winning battles. They only have two purposes: completing certain Side Quests or selling to Daidara Metal Works in the Central Shopping District. Selling these Materials will allow Daidara to create new Weapons, Armor, or Accessories depending on which material was sold.

Gems

Gems are special items obtained after winning battles. Unlike Materials, Gems serve another purpose other than being sold. Trade these Gems with the old lady at the Shiroku Pub to obtain new weapons. The Shiroku Pub is the same building as the Shiroku Store, but it’s only open during the evening.

Gems can also be obtained from the Lady in White at Tatsuhime Shrine at night once you have given her enough of the fish she requests.
