Problem trying to fuse with an element...

#1EDumeyPosted 6/11/2012 11:05:02 AM
What I understand the concept to be is that you fuse one race with an element, and you get a demon one step up or down. I'm on my first playthrough looking to upgrade my Sarasvati who is a bit outdated compared to the rest of my team. However, trying to fuse with either a Flaemis or an Aquans has provided me a "invalid combination" It's not a level problem, as I have access to the next Megami. She just won't fuse. I'm just curious as to why she poses an exception.

Also, seeing as how that isn't working, what demon (I'm FL 35) would be good to fuse Sarasvati into? Preferably MAG based and not Leanne Sedai or whatever her name is.

Megami race can only rank down with Element Fusion.

------
Consider if any fits your purpose, whatever it may be.

Sarasvati + Barbatos = Yuki Jyorou (Femme, Lv 34)
Sarasvati + Suparna = Lailah (Divine, Lv 32)

Or fuse Sarasvati with another Megami to create Aquans.
Aquans + Afanc = Xiezhai (Wilder, Lv 37)
Aquans + Pyro Jack = Lorelei (Fairy, Lv 37)
Aquans + Yuki Jyorou = Peri (Femme, Lv 38)

Yep cogito is right but you can look here http://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/625210-shin-megami-tensei-devil-survivor-2/faqs/62780 for demon combinations that require saravasti.

Well that's dumb. D:

Was that Megami exception ever stated in the game somewhere? I don't recall ever hearing anything like that.

Thanks though! Getting a MAG based Pyro Jack seems simple enough to get that Lorelei.

No. In most other SMT games that have Element/Mitama fusion, certain races just can't be upgraded through Element fusion. The game wants you to get the stronger ones the hard way. :p

Several races can only rank down.

What even is the purpose of ranking down? Just transferring skills and bonus stats into slightly different fusion material?

Transferring high end skills to low base level demons to reduce base costs
and those demons can be refused into Element and/or Mitama to pass on skills.

and of course, Rank Down is great for 100% Compendium completion. It's quite cheap that way, and good to get skills on if you have a high level race that has good skillset already.
