Tips and Tricks for Finding Memoirs

Familiarize yourself with the game world: Understanding the layout of the game world and its various regions will help you navigate more easily, enabling you to find memoirs faster.

Use the map and waypoints: The in-game map can be a valuable tool for tracking down memoirs. Utilize waypoints to mark the locations of memoirs you’ve discovered or read about, so you can easily return to them later.

Complete substories: Many memoirs are tied to the completion of substories. Prioritize these quests as you progress through the game, as they often unlock new memoir locations. Substories also help you farm Virtue in Like a Dragon Ishin.

Check your progress: Regularly consult your memoir collection in the menu to see which ones you have already found and which are still missing. This will help you focus your search and avoid revisiting locations where you’ve already collected memoirs.

Explore during day and night: Some memoirs are only accessible during specific times of day. If you’re struggling to find a memoir, try visiting the location during both daytime and nighttime to see if it appears.

Interact with NPCs: Engaging with non-player characters (NPCs) can sometimes yield valuable information about memoir locations. Listen to their dialogues and watch for hints that may point you toward hidden memoirs.

Be thorough: Memoirs can often be found in less obvious or hidden locations. Take your time exploring every nook and cranny of the game world to ensure you don’t miss any collectibles.
