Are you tired of the same old weapons and armor in Persona 3 Reload? Looking for something with a little more oomph and exotic flair? Well, my friend, look no further than Mayoido Antiques, conveniently located near the police station in Paulownia Mall. Get ready to trade in those gemstones you've been collecting in Tartarus for some seriously powerful gear. Officer Kurosawa's stock will pale in comparison!
As you stroll through Paulownia Mall at the beginning of your Persona 3 Reload adventure, you'll notice a few shops that aren't open yet. But fear not, for one of them is none other than Mayoido Antiques, nestled between Mandragora Karaoke and Aohige Pharmacy. It's like finding a hidden gem in a sea of ordinary shops.
Now, Mayoido Antiques won't open its doors until 7/18, but trust me, it's worth the wait. On that fateful day, Ikutsuki will pay a visit to your dorm in the evening, presenting you with a mysterious item. He'll urge you to take it over to the owner of Mayoido to see what wonders she can work with it. And let me tell you, my friend, the owner is a master of her craft.
Upon reaching Mayoido Antiques, you'll discover that the item Ikutsuki gave you is, in fact, a weapon blueprint. The owner, with her expert skills, can turn that blueprint into a formidable weapon for any member of your party. It's like having a personal blacksmith at your service!
But here's the real kicker—she won't accept your hard-earned yen in exchange for these marvelous weapons. No, no, my friend. Instead, she has a different currency in mind—gemstones. Remember those gemstones you've been finding in Tartarus? The ones that seemed useless until now? Well, it's time to put them to good use!
Each item at Mayoido Antiques can be yours in exchange for those precious gemstones you've collected. The rarer the gemstone, the more powerful the gear or item you can acquire. It's like a treasure hunt with a tangible reward at the end.
Now, let's talk about the Yabbashah block of Tartarus. It's in this mechanical labyrinth that you'll encounter a new type of treasure chest—the elusive Nihil chests. These chests shine with a vibrant green light, calling out to adventurers like yourself. They hold the key to upgrading your gear at Mayoido, so keep an eye out for them!
Inside each Nihil chest, you'll find one of three items:
But here's where it gets really interesting. In Persona 3 Reload, defeating Shadows inside the Monad Doors has a whole new twist. Not only do you get the usual rewards from a regular treasure chest, but you'll also receive a precious Nihil item for every Monad Shadow you defeat. It's like getting a bonus on top of a bonus!
To make things easier for you, we've compiled a handy table with all the items available at Mayoido Antiques. We've even categorized them based on the Nihil item you'll need to access them. You'll find information on cost, stats, additional perks, and more. It's like having a personal shopping guide right at your fingertips!
So, my bold adventurer, visit Mayoido Antiques, unleash the power of gemstones, and upgrade your gear to new heights in Persona 3 Reload. It's time to stand out from the crowd with your powerful and exotic arsenal. The world of Tartarus won't know what hit it!
