Best Ways To Get Macca in Shin Megami Tensei IV

Published on July 18th, 2013 by Gervais D.

What is Macca? – Macca is money in Shin Megami Tensei IV. It can be used to purchase items from shops and negotiate with demons. At the start of the game, Macca is a little tough to obtain, however, the more Macca the player has, the better.

This guide shows you the best ways to get Macca in Shin Megami Tensei IV.

Best Ways To Get Macca in Shin Megami Tensei IV

Scout Bonus App

After unlocking the Burroughs App in Shin Megami Tensei IV, use your points to purchase the Scout Bonus app. Every time you use ‘Scout’ and recruit a demon, the demon will give you free Macca. Using ‘Scout’ on demons that are in your party (the demon can be alive or with 0 HP) might also give you Macca and automatically end the battle.

Selling Relics

Relics can be obtained in the game. They are normally found at locations where demons lurk in Shin Megami Tensei IV (eg. Naraku). After picking a relic up, it will reappear after a certain point in time, therefore, they can be recollected.

Early in the game, players can find a lot of relics and a demon’s domain with a relic reward in Tokyo. After several minutes or hours, check again to obtain these relics again and sell them at the Black Market (not at Mikado since they pay less).

Completing Quests

You can see how much Macca that you can get from completing a quest. Tackle the quests that give you the most Macca to become rich in Shin Megami Tensei IV. After completing the quest, be sure to turn it to collect the Macca.

Selling Items

Sell items that you do not need at shops to receive Macca. Rear items that you obtain from quests (including free and paid DLC) can be traded for a higher amount of Macca. Common items such as Life Bottle might get you a low amount of Macca.

I will try to keep this guide updated when I discover more ways to get Macca in the game.
