Yukiko Amagi S-Link Guide - The Priestess

This page will have you completely covered for the Yukiko Amagi social link in Persona 4 Golden - it features all s-link ranks and conversation choices for your relationship with Yukiko as spoiler-free as possible.

You can romance Yukiko in P4G, eventually becoming her boyfriend - if you so choose. This guide covers everything up to that point, and also flags the point of no return for starting or avoiding a relationship.

In Persona 4, social links are governed by a hidden experience point style stat for each relationship. As you hang out with each s-link, you’ll earn points that add to that value and push each social link closer to leveling up. If you say the right things, you can earn bonus points and level up more quickly.

The choices listed have their rank impact indicated by the number next to each answer - the higher the better. The numbers are based on the value with the Persona Arcana bonus - the points you get when you also have a Persona of the same Arcana as Yukiko - Priestess - with you. Otherwise, the values will be slightly lower.
