Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

In this Persona 5 Royal guide, we’ll show you how to find all three Will Seeds of Sorrow and get the Crystal of Sorrow in Maruki’s Palace.

Persona 5 Royal’s dungeons are largely the same as they were in Persona 5 — despite the occasional use of the new grappling hook. But one major change in each palace is the existence of Will Seeds. Each Persona 5 Royal palace now has three Will Seeds hidden inside. Picking up all of them will net you a sweet new item, which Jose can later upgrade for free in Mementos.

Red Will Seed of Sorrow location

Maruki’s Palace’s red Will Seed of Sorrow is in the ??? Monitoring Room area.

Look for the long staircase and walk up it to reach a small room with a chest inside. Grab the chest and look around for a duct on the floor. Crawl through the duct and you’ll find a larger room with a bunch of platforms. Jump around to collect another chest and find the sealed door. Open the door to pick up your red Will Seed of Sorrow.

Green Will Seed of Sorrow location

Maruki’s Palace’s green Will Seed of Sorrow is in the Research Ward.

Make your way through the Ward until you find Maruki’s video in a small room (which you need to progress in the story). Turn around and take the long staircase up to the highest floor. Kill the Shadows here and grapple onto the support beams. Look for a duct and crawl through it.

On the other side, move forward until you find some broken glass. Break through the glass and jump onto the walkway below. You’re now right in front of the sealed door. Walk through to pick up the green Will Seed of Sorrow.

Blue Will Seed of Sorrow location

Maruki’s Palace’s blue Will Seed of Sorrow is in the Twilight Corridor, on the final light puzzle floor.

Instead of going up the giant staircase, jump around to the back of the area and you’ll find a sealed door guarded by a powerful Shadow. But the door is behind three plant gates.

Take what you’ve learned in the light puzzle and disable all three walls. Your goal is to have no lights on once you’ve reached the final platform. Work your way in, turning off non-essential lights until you reach the final podium.

Finish turning off the lights, defeat the Shadow, and go through the sealed door to pick up the blue Will Seed of Sorrow — the final one in Persona 5 Royal.

Maruki’s palace Will Seeds of Sorrow rewards

For all your trouble, you’ll get the Crystal of Sorrow, which automatically restores 8% of max life and SP after every battle. The game is almost over, and the Metaverse will go away once you defeat Maruki. The Crystal of Sorrow is as good as you’re going to get here, so don’t bother taking it to Jose for an upgrade.
