Persona 3 Reload vending machine locations: How to collect 12 drinks from vending machines

This seemingly simple request is quite a pain.

The ninth request from Elizabeth in Persona 3 Reload requires you to collect 12 different drinks from vending machines. This sounds simple on paper, but tracking down enough vending machines to collect a dozen different drinks can be tough if you don’t already know where to look.

The reward for this request is a Media Skill Card that can teach one of your Personas a powerful AoE healing skill, however, so it’s worth tracking down a 12-pack to help quench Elizabeth’s thirst. Here’s where you can find vending machines to buy enough drinks to complete this request.

Which 12 Drinks Does Elizabeth Need?

To complete Elizabeth’s request, you need to collect at least 12 of the following drinks.

  • Cielo Mist
  • SoBay
  • Mad Bull
  • Starvicks
  • Cylon Tea
  • Aguafeena
  • Nastea
  • BauerBar
  • Fountain Dew
  • Dr. Salt
  • Moonkist
  • 1 Up
  • 4biotic Pack
  • Definitely Lemonade
  • Happiness Water

The last three on the list are sold out at the Iwatodai Station vending machine, however, and getting the machine restocked is a huge headache. It’s best to just buy the 12 drinks that are in stock instead of jumping through hoops to get those specific beverages.

All Vending Machine Locations in Persona 3 Reload

There are five vending machines in Persona 3 Reload.

  • Student Dormitory 2F
  • Student Dormitory 3F
  • Iwatodai Strip Mall 3F
  • Port Island Station
  • Iwatodai Station

All of the vending machines are incredibly easy to find once you arrive in each area. To reach the ones in the Student Dormitory, just head up the stairs. At Iwatodai Strip Mall, climb the spiral staircase to the third floor. At Port Island Station, you’ll see them at the bottom of the stairs. These four vending machines are all you need to complete this request.

The Iwatodai Station vending machine is the odd one out. Half of its contents are sold out. You’ll need to level up your Courage high enough to enter Club Escapade and get an item called the Iwatodai Forum Note if you want to restock it. If you’ve already reached Courage level two, talk to the Suspicious Man in Club Escapade to obtain the Iwatodai Forum Note and then use it at the computer in the Student Dormitory to restock the machine and unlock 4biotic Pack, Definitely Lemonade, and Happiness Water.

Once you’ve obtained 12 different drinks, just head back to the Velvet Room and speak to Elizabeth to complete this request and receive your Media Skill Card. This is one of the harder requests for Elizabeth, but at least you’ve gotten it out of the way. She still has more errands to send you on, however, and you’ll need to collect items like a Muscle Drink for her if you want to get more rewards.
