 Version History
===============================================================================

  Version 0.60 (05/27/08)
- Fixed Light-type inheritance table.
- Fixed incense cards table...all of the exchange rates have changed for FES. 
  The game is now much more generous in this department, IMO.
- Cleaned up/updated Section 3. Skill morphing information can now be found in 
  the Skill Database, so look there.
- I think I'm eventually going to lump the Requests section into this document;
  might as well keep all Velvet Room content in one place.

  Version 0.55 (05/05/08)
- Special and restricted fusion tables now updated.

  Version 0.50 (04/23/08)
- With the release of FES, I've started this guide out with Igor's tutorials 
  and the new and improved fusion tables. The tutorials and mechanics 
  explanations are ripped straight from my vanilla P3 FAQ, so there may be some 
  errors, but I'll fix them later. For now, whatever examples I carried over 
  should suffice to show how stuff works.
- Most of the other tables have not yet been updated for FES.
- Information on weapon fusion (entirely new to FES) will come later.

The tutorials in the Velvet Room are pretty decent, so I will transcribe them 
for Igor and then provide whatever elaboration is necessary afterwards.

 2a. Fusion basics                                                      [002a0]


 -------
| Igor: |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| My role is to create new Personas...                                       |
|                                                                            |
| By fusing your existing Personas together, I allow a new one to emerge.    |
|                                                                            |
| When a new Persona is created, it tends to be of a higher level than the   |
| ones that were fused.                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| However, Personas that are fused are lost forever.                         |
|                                                                            |
| Since the process requires multiple Personas, you will be left with fewer  |
| than you had before...                                                     |
|                                                                            |
| Which powers will you forsake in order to gain new ones...? It is up to    |
| you to decide.                                                             |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The ingredients you use are in fact not lost forever; you can reacquire them 
from the Compendium starting on May 10 (after registering them, if we're 
talking about the same exact ingredient with the same level/skills).

 2b. Fusion & S.Links                                                   [002b0]


 -------
| Igor: |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Persona is the power of your soul, which thrives on the bonds you have     |
| with others.                                                               |
|                                                                            |
| Thus, it is only natural that Social Links affect the strength of your     |
| Personas.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| If you have established a Social Link of the same Arcana as the Persona    |
| you wish to create...                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| ...then that Persona will receive power from the Social Link and level up. |
|                                                                            |
| The amount of power it will receive depends on the level of the Social     |
| Link.                                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| In some cases, your Persona may even surpass your own level. *chuckle*     |
|                                                                            |
| Do you understand now how important Social Links are to Persona-users?     |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


You get a certain amount of bonus experience when you apply the effects of a 
developed Social Link during fusion. I don't have a guaranteed formula for 
exactly how much experience you get per Commu Rank, but I can provide a good 
estimation in terms of how many levels you gain.

 |                            |
 |      Commu Rank Bonus Exp. |
  ============================
 | Commu Rank | Levels Gained |
  ----------------------------
 |          1 |           1.4 |
 |          2 |           1.8 |
 |          3 |           2.2 |
 |          4 |           2.6 |
 |          5 |           3.0 |
 |          6 |           3.4 |
 |          7 |           3.8 |
 |          8 |           4.2 |
 |          9 |           4.6 |
 |         10 |           5.0 |
  ------------ ---------------


I am fairly confident in the accuracies of the values corresponding to Commu 
Ranks 5 and 10. Using those, I extrapolated a linear relationship, which may or 
may not be completely correct, but nevertheless seems adequate.

 2c. Types of fusion                                                    [002c0]


 -------
| Igor: |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| There are several types of fusion.                                         |
|                                                                            |
| First, the Normal Spread... This is the most basic type.                   |
|                                                                            |
| You simply fuse two Personas together.                                     |
|                                                                            |
| Next, the Triangle Spread...                                               |
| In this type of fusion, three Personas are used to produce a Persona of an |
| even higher order.                                                         |
|                                                                            |
| Supposedly, certain Persons can only be created through Triangle Spread    |
| fusion...                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| In general, Persona fusion exhibits predictable patterns dependent on the  |
| Arcana involved.                                                           |
|                                                                            |
| There are a number of combinations, however, that don't follow the usual   |
| patterns.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| For example, fusing Personas of the same Arcana...                         |
|                                                                            |
| The best way to learn is to experiment on your own.                        |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Nitty-gritty time.

The first step to figuring out what Persona you are going to get via basic 
fusion involves the consideration of the BASE LEVELS of the ingredients you are 
using. Remember, use BASE LEVELS, not CURRENT LEVELS. Calculate the average 
value among your ingredients and round it down to the nearest whole number. 
This is a universal step, so let's give this value a shorthand, "AVG", for 
discussion in subsequent examples.

From here, I will separate the mechanics for normal and triangle spreads 
fusions. I will further isolate same-Arcana fusions (e.g. Fool x Fool, Fool x 
Fool x Fool) for separate considerations.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 (1) Normal spread                                                      [002c1]


To determine the output Persona as a result of normal spread fusion, do the 
following:


1. Calculate AVG for your two ingredient Personas and round down.
   > Example: Orpheus (Base Lv 1) x Orobas (Base Lv 34)
              AVG = 17.5 -> 17

2. Add 1 to AVG.
   > Example: Orpheus (Base Lv 1) x Orobas (Base Lv 34)
              AVG + 1 = 18

3. Now, the Arcana to which your resultant Persona belongs is determined by the 
   Arcanae of your ingredient Personas.
   > Example: Orpheus (Fool) x Orobas (Magician)
             Resultant Arcana = Hierophant
             (Don't worry about how that was determined, there will be plenty 
             of tables later for your perusal.)

4. Take your (AVG + 1) value and look within the resultant Arcana for the 
   Persona whose Base Level is at least that.
   > Example: Within Hierophant, 17 + 1 = 18 is sandwiched by Berith (Lv 13) 
              and Shiisaa (Lv 26). Therefore, the fusion result will be 
              Shiisaa.


Here is a set of tables that shows you what you can fuse with a specified 
ingredient of a particular Arcana. Three dashed lines ("---") means that 
nothing comes of that particular fusion, and therefore it is an invalid 
combination.

I know that I haven't discussed same-Arcana fusions, but I'll leave them in the 
tables for thoroughness. I'll come back to them later.

Here's a different organization. The following tables tell you which two Arcana 
you need to produce a Persona of a desired Arcana. You can pick a combination 
on any row, and the order in which you pick the two doesn't matter (for 
example, Fool x Chariot is the same as Chariot x Fool). Any conspicuously 
missing combinations (e.g. Emperor x Fortune) are invalid ones.

Just to restate the obvious: you will see that Fool, Tower, Sun, and Judgement 
Personas cannot be acquired via normal spread fusion unless it is through a 
same-Arcana fusion, which will always be a rank-down fusion (more on that 
later).


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 (2) Triangle spread                                                    [002c2]


There is a lot of confusion about how triangle spread fusion works, so I will 
explain.

In triangle spread fusion, the determination of which Arcana the result belongs 
to is based on two factors. The first is what I will call a hypothetical 
"intermediate", which is the result of a normal spread fusion between the 1st 
Persona and the 2nd Persona. The second factor is the 3rd Persona.

The big question is: when you select your three Personas, how do you know which 
is the 1st, which is the 2nd, and which is the 3rd?

The only distinction that matters is the identity of the 3rd Persona, which is 
determined by the following two checks. The system performs the first check. If 
no distinction can be made using that, it proceeds to the second check.

  Check 1: The Persona whose CURRENT LEVEL -- NOT Base Level -- is highest.
  Check 2: The Persona whose Arcana is of the lowest order, 0/Fool being the 
           lowest, XX/Judgement being the highest.

  > Example: Lv 25 Power (VIII) x Lv 25 Lamia (IX) x Lv 22 Mithra (XIV)
             3rd Persona selected = Power 
             (tie for highest Current Level -> lowest order Arcana)

Once the 3rd Persona is determined, the system performs the intermediate step 
of performing a normal spread fusion on the other two, and the corresponding 
Arcana of that intermediate is crossed with that of the 3rd Persona. In the 
example above, we'd get an intermediate of (Hermit x Temperance =) Hanged Man,
which combines with our 3rd Persona of Justice to produce a Priestess (again, 
you'll see this later in the tables).

To determine what sort of Priestess you get, you can do the same sort of thing 
you did with normal spread fusion. The catch here is that your comparative 
value is (AVG + 5), not (AVG + 1).

  > Example: Lv 25 Power (VIII) x Lv 25 Lamia (IX) x Lv 22 Mithra (XIV)
             AVG     = 24
             AVG + 5 = 29
             Result  = Lv 35 Ganga (II)


  ** IMPORTANT **

Again, allow me to emphasize that this is VERY important.

Note that the Arcana classifications can be swapped. This means that, 
alternatively, you can create a Justice as your intermediate (e.g. Emperor x 
Strength) and use a Hanged Man as the 3rd Persona, and you will ALSO get a 
Priestess via triangle spread fusion. I hope this makes sense.

In the tables to follow, "Normal Res" is short for the Arcana result you get 
via normal fusion of your 1st and 2nd Personas. Again, use any combination on a 
particular row.

 (3) Same-Arcana fusions                                                [002c3]


Same-Arcana fusions follow slightly different rules, but they're not that hard 
to understand.

In normal spread fusion, you calculate your (AVG + 1) value normally. Now, your 
resultant Arcana is the same (e.g. Fool x Fool = Fool). The Persona that you 
end up with is done by following these steps:


  1. From your (AVG + 1) value, move DOWN one rank within the Arcana.
     > Examples: Orpheus x Decarabia = Ose, Ose x Susano-o = Loki

  2. If this results in one of the ingredients, move down ANOTHER rank.
     > Examples: Slime x Legion = Orpheus, Decarabia x Susano-o = Ose, or any 
       combination of two Personas in successive order within an Arcana.

  3. You can NEVER do a rank-up fusion in normal spread, so combinations 
     involving the two weakest Personas within an Arcana are invalid.
     > Example: Orpheus x Slime = N/A


In triangle spread fusion (and I am referring ONLY to fusions where all three 
ingredients are of the same Arcana, e.g. Fool x Fool x Fool = Fool), there are 
two differences with respect to normal spread fusion:

   - Your comparative value is (AVG + 5), not (AVG + 1). This is nothing new.
   - Repeat steps 1 and 2 from above, except replace the word "down" with "up".
   - Examples:
     Orpheus x Slime x Legion = Ose (skipping Black Frost since it is a special 
     fusion)
     Slime x Legion x Black Frost = Ose
     Legion x Ose x Decarabia = Loki

Note the first example; since these fusions ARE rank-up in nature, you can 
indeed use the three weakest Personas within an Arcana. On the other hand, you 
cannot use the three STRONGEST within an Arcana. Therefore, a formula of 
Loki x Susano-o x Orpheus Telos gets you squat. Can't be done.

| Allow me to talk a bit about the special fusions that involve four or more |
| Personas.                                                                  |
|                                                                            |
| These fusions are extremely complex...                                     |
|                                                                            |
| In fact, it is impossible for me to predict the outcome unless you have    |
| all the necessary Personas with you.                                       |
|                                                                            |
| However, be aware that the Personas created by these special fusions       |
| cannot be acquired in any other way.                                       |
|                                                                            |
| I assure you, they are well worth the effort.                              |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Let me distinguish between SPECIAL fusions and RESTRICTED fusions here.

- SPECIAL fusions require a specific formula of ingredient Personas; they can 
  never be made via normal or triangle spread, with the following exceptions: 
  Orpheus, Pixie, Norn, Shiva, and Messiah. Special fusions requiring four or
  more ingredients are only available from September 21 on.
- RESTRICTED fusions almost always require a corresponding key item to unlock 
  its ability to be fused. These key items are obtained through either the 
  completion of certain requests or the maxing of S.Links. The only Personas 
  that don't have corresponding key items are the ones that are unlocked 
  through maxed story-based S.Links: Susano-o, Thanatos, and Messiah.

Of course, these are not mutually exclusive distinctions. Some Personas are a 
product of both a special AND a restricted fusion.

And now, the full list of special fusions.

- In the following table, the "R" column designates whether or not the special 
  fusion is also a restricted fusion. An "M" means that the Persona's Arcana's 
  S.Link must be maxed. An "E" means that the completion of one of Elizabeth's 
  requests is required to lift the restriction. A dash means that there is no 
  restriction. 
- The "Spr" column designates the type of spread required. Abbreviations for 
  spread types should be obvious.

 * - Max all S.Links in one playthrough and Igor will give you the Colorless 
     Mask automatically upon entering the Velvet Room, which unlocks this
     fusion. This fusion can also be accomplished without using the special 
     formula, but you will not be able to fill out the skill set if you do not
     use the non-special fusion.


Note that the methods to fuse Orpheus and Pixie are derived purely from the 
confines of fusion mechanics, and not from a special formula (i.e. Shiva 
or Messiah).

And you're probably thinking that I should go ahead and give you the restricted 
fusions in tabulated form, right? Fine. Here, I also list the specific request 
number that needs to be completed where it applies.

 2e. Skill inheritance                                                  [002e0]


 -------
| Igor: |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
| A Persona created through fusion may inherit the skills possessed by its   |
| precursors.                                                                |
|                                                                            |
| In other words, it's possible to give a Persona skills that it could never |
| learn on its own.                                                          |
|                                                                            |
| You should keep this in mind when you're trying to create a powerful       |
| Persona.                                                                   |
| The mechanism of skill inheritance is not completely understood...         |
| but there are three key points I'd like to share with you.                 |
|                                                                            |
| First, the skills to be inherited change every time you select a Persona   |
| for fusion.                                                                |
|                                                                            |
| Second, the chance of a skill being inherited depends on what the expected |
| Persona is.                                                                |
|                                                                            |
| ...I can give you more details on this some other time.                    |
|                                                                            |
| Lastly, the more skills the original Personas possess, the more skills the |
| resulting Persona will inherit.                                            |
|                                                                            |
| ...Please remember this.                                                   |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


The number of skills inherited is dependent on the total number of skills 
across all Personas being used as ingredients. Thanks to opfer_gv for his help 
with this.

 2f. Inheritance rules                                                  [002f0]

| Igor: |

| Allow me to explain more about skill inheritance.                          |
|                                                                            |
| For each Persona, there are skills that can be inherited, and those that   |
| cannot.                                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| It is primarily determined by the Persona's characteristics...             |
|                                                                            |
| Here are some general rules.                                               |
|                                                                            |
| Personas proficient at physical attacks are unlikely to inherit magic      |
| attacks.                                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| Regarding magic attacks... let us first discuss Fire, Ice, Electricity and |
| Wind.                                                                      |
|                                                                            |
| A Persona with an affinity for one of these four elements cannot inherit   |
| skills of [the] other three types.                                         |
|                                                                            |
| Likewise, Personas with an affinity for Light will never inherit Dark      |
| skills, and vice versa.                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| Meanwhile, Personas proficient at healing cannot inherit any physical      |
| attacks.                                                                   |
|                                                                            |
| As you'd expect, Personas good at physical attacks tend to be bad at       |
| magic, and very few Personas can wield magic of multiple elements.         |
|                                                                            |
| Even more rare are Personas who can inherit any skill, although they do    |
| exist.                                                                     |
|                                                                            |
| You will learn more, by and by, as you experiment with fusion.             |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Each Persona is of a certain Inherit Type. This means that they will have 
skewed preferences in terms of what types of skills they choose to carry over 
as a result of being fused. In the following tables, I have laid out these 
preferences, represented mathematically in probability ratios.

Probability Ratios (PrR values) are easy to decipher. Using the table in the 
DoubleJump guide, I calibrated the base PrR value for an Inherit Type ALL 
Persona (which prefers every type of skill equally) to be 1.0, and went from 
there, converting all of the other values.

To read the tables, you have to think comparatively between two types of 
skills. For example, an Inherit Type SLASH Persona is eight times more likely 
to pick up a Slash skill than a Strike, Pierce, Special, or Passive skill, 
since the comparative ratio is 8.0 : 1.0. It is forty times more likely to pick 
up a Slash skill overa Recovery or Almighty skill (8.0 : 0.2).

The reason that a probability ratio is used instead of a strict percent chance 
is because the skills that carry over for any fusion varies in terms both 
number and type. Therefore, a probability ratio is best in terms of evaluating 
what skills are most likely to carry over.

In other words, PrR values are a more convenient way to handle a pool of more 
than two skills. Consider a Strike-type Persona with the following skills 
available to carry over during fusion:

- 1 Slash skill
- 2 Strike skills
- 1 Almighty skill
- 2 Passive skills

The net probability ratio is 1.0 : 8.0 : 8.0 : 0.2 : 1.0 : 1.0.

Note that actual value for any tabulated Probability Ratio (PrR) of 8.0 is 
119/15, but I doubt there will be any serious complaints as to the validity of 
8.0 as a nice, rounded off approximation.

                           ------------------


In my discussion of triangle spread fusions, I mentioned the determination of 
an "intermediate" that is crossed with the 3rd Persona to produce the final 
result. This intermediate has no effect on skill inheritance, so don't worry 
about it.

 2g. Incense cards                                                      [002g0]

| Are you familiar with the Minor Arcana cards? They depict coins, swords,   |
| and whatnot.                                                               |
|                                                                            |
| Of those, the face cards--the Page, Knight, Queen and King--hold special   |
| powers.                                                                    |
|                                                                            |
| They are called Incense Cards, and they can enhance Personas' abilities.   |
|                                                                            |
| These cards' effects can be passed on through fusion to new Personas.      |
|                                                                            |
| If you happen to acquire one, you should give it a try.                    |
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


There are a number of incense cards, which boost Personas' stats, which can be 
acquired. They can be dropped by bosses and are also granted by Mitsuru when 
you score the highest in your class on an exam. However, the primary method of 
acquisition is via trading in gems at the antique store.

 2i. Item bearing                                                       [002i0]

| Occasionally, a newly created Persona bears an item within.                |

Certain Personas, when fused, are capable of bearing pieces of equipment that 
are either unique or, at the very least, significantly rare. Aside from the 
ultimate armors that Messiah produces, all of these items are accessories that 
provide the equivalent of one or more passive skills.

To obtain the "heart item", so called due to the fact that a heart appears next 
to the Persona's name in the menu, you have to level up enough to learn all of 
that Persona's innate skills. If all skills are learned as a result of S.Link 
bonus experience, you have to gain another level after that in order to obtain 
the item.

You are not required to keep all of the innate skills upon learning them, i.e. 
you can toss them if there is an overflow and you are forced to discard one or 
more skills.

There is only about a 40% for the emergence of a heart item upon fusion, so you 
may want to keep a save handy for reloading if you don't get the result you 
want, since you won't be able to tell whether or not the heart item is there 
until after Igor does his thing. This percentage doubles, to approximately 80%, 
if the current moon phase is New or Full.

     to produce each of the other five items.


In order to obtain multiple copies of one of these items, simply register the 
Persona right before it's due to spit its item out, level up, get the item, and 
ditch the Persona (via dismissal or fusion), and reobtain it from the 
Compendium. This is the only way to obtain every single item that Messiah is 
capable of producing. Of course, it'll end up being quite expensive...

By the way, any Personas in the table that can be gained from Shuffle cards 
will NEVER produce heart items if obtained that way. They MUST be fused.

 3a. Techniques                                                         [003a0]


You can probably get through the game without ever delving into the nuances of 
fusion, but if you take some time to really dig into it, there is lot for you 
to explore.

The most common questions I see are about how to get a certain skill onto a 
certain Persona, usually with regard to one of Elizabeth's requests. Those 
requests are meant for the player to try to wrap his or her head around fusion 
mechanics. 

Of course, it would be easy to provide a formula/recipe to fulfill those 
requests, but this does not necessarily benefit the player in terms of actually 
fully understanding fusion. Two aspects of Persona 3, fusion and Social Link 
management, are actually different types of logic puzzles that force the player 
to actually think about what he or she is doing.

If this does not fit your playing style, then this section is not for you. I 
say this with no condescension, as I understand that every gamer has 
preferences in terms of how he or she decides to enjoy a game. On the other 
hand, if you decide that you do not necessarily want to be held by the hand but 
still desire further elaboration on the fusion system, read on.

You should first go back and read through Section 6 in its entirety. Then 
return here, but make sure you have the skill inheritance tables on hand for 
the following discussions.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 (1) Inheritance management                                             [003a1]


First, terminology, some of which I've already been using:


- A TARGET Persona is one you want to make.
- An INGREDIENT Persona is what you use to create a target.
- A FORMULA or RECIPE is a list of steps traced from your initial ingredients 
  to the final target.
- NOISE is what we will refer to as a collective term for unwanted skills that 
  are heavily favored by the target. For example, you want to create a Thanatos 
  with Vorpal Blade. Therefore, Dark-type and Bad Status-type skills are what 
  we would refer to as noise in this particular instance.
- JUNK is the inverse of noise. Junk will be used to denote unwanted skills 
  that are either NOT favored by the target or flat-out impossible for the 
  target to inherit.


The two things that you need to master when it comes to advanced fusion are 
noise control and junk distribution. Allow me to use a very easy example:


> TARGET:  Byakko with Elec Amp, Thunder Reign, Spell Master
> FORMULA: Odin (Lv 65+) x Surt


This is not a difficult fusion at all, but to cover the bases of my discussion, 
I will go over several important points, step-by-step.


  1. Carryover

Try to produce a carryover of at least (n+1) skills, where n is the number of 
specific skills that you want on the target.

This should be obvious. You want a little leeway so you're not stuck with 
having to ABSOLUTELY get every single one of your skills right. In this case, 
we want Suzaku to inherit 3 specific skills, so we should have enough skills on 
Rangda and Odin to produce a carryover of 4. To do this, we need a minimum of 
12 total skills between Odin and Rangda.

In triangle spread fusion, you should generally try to fill up all three 
ingredients with 8 skills each, giving you a carryover of 5.


  2. Noise control

In this case, the transfer of Thunder Reign from Odin to Byakko is easy because 
Byakko is an Elec-type, so he will readily accept Thunder Reign. However, we do 
have noise in the form of any other Elec skills on Odin, who learns both 
Ziodyne and Maziodyne. In addition to the fact that Byakko learns these two 
spells naturally anyway, we don't want them because we want Elec Amp and Spell 
Master, passive skills. The problem is that Byakko will heavily favor carrying 
over Ziodyne and Maziodyne.

Therefore, when you create Odin in the first place (of course, since Odin can 
only be acquired through fusion), you should look to control the noise by means 
of...


  3. Junk distribution

So, let's see. Odin also learns Vile Assault, which is a physical skill. Now, 
Suzaku is capable of inheriting Vile Assault, but is five times more likely to 
inherit a passive skill, such as -- you guessed it -- Elec Amp or Spell Master.

Therefore, in fusing Odin, you could try to load him up with a bunch of 
physical skills; he is Elec-type like Suzaku, so his inheritance properties are 
the same. Then, as you fill out his repertoire through leveling, you will have 
to forget skills to make room for the three that you want: Elec Amp at 60, 
Thunder Reign at 63, and Spell Master at 65. At that point, you can forget 
Ziodyne and Maziodyne. In essence, you have swapped them for physical skills 
that are less likely to be inherited than your passive skills will be.

Basically, physical skills can be used as junk in this fusion.

Now, throughout this, I have made no mention of Surt. We don't want any of 
His skills on Suzaku, so we still have to deal with his potential noise. Let's 
look at his default skills: Agidyne, Deathbound, Fire Boost, Maragidyne (54), 
Ragnarok (58), and Fire Amp (59).

Deathbound is a physical skill, so for our purposes, it's suitable junk. 

Agidyne and Maragidyne are the best kind of junk: the kind that can't be 
carried over at all. 

Fire Boost and Fire Amp, however, compete with Elec Amp and Spell Master, so 
we'd like to get rid of them if we can by giving Rangda some more junk.

Surt is a Fire-type. Put two and two together...

Like I said, it's not that hard. You can easily create a Surt with a ton of 
lower-level Fire skills using repeated Magician fusions and forget or reject 
Fire Boost and Fire Amp when the time comes.

With these things in mind, you are on your way to carving out your own fusion 
pathways in matching up your favorite skills with your favorite Personas.

 (2) Bridges                                                            [003a2]


A fusion bridge is what I will call an intermediately fused Persona in a 
particular pathway. For example, in the formula:

1. Laksmi x Kingu = Titania
2. Titania x Bishamonten = Ganesha

Titania would be a bridge to Ganesha.

The concept of bridges is important because you can use them as noise filters 
and junk carriers in order to transfer skills from an ingredient to a target of 
a similar inheritance type, where the skills that you want to transfer are NOT 
of that skill type.

What do I mean by this? Let's say you've loaded up Titania with a bunch of 
first-rate passive skills and you want to create a Cybele with those skills. 
Now, creating Cybele from Titania is the easiest thing in the world; a simple 
same-Arcana rank-up fusion of Saki Mitama x Titania x Raphael would get the job 
done. 

Getting those passive skills onto the Cybele, however, is another story. There 
is a ton of noise you'd have to deal with. Since Saki Mitama, Titania, and 
Cybele are all Recovery-types, you're going to have to deal with a bunch of 
unwanted Recovery and Enhance skills. Toss in the fact that passive skills 
compete equally with elemental skills for Recovery-types, and we have a real 
headache.

An alternate strategy would be to use different ingredients to make Cybele and 
use those ingredients as filters. In our example, we want to accumulate as much 
junk on the ingredients as possible with respect to a goal of transferring 
specific passive skills. As a Recovery-type, good junk skills include all three 
types of physical skills, which never transfer, and Light, Dark, and Bad Status 
skills, which are five times less likely to be transferred than passive skills 
are.

Therefore, if we can come up with ingredients for Cybele of those inheritance 
types and put our desired skills on them, while loading up the rest of the 
skill slots for them with assorted junk, we'll likely save a lot of time in the 
Velvet Room as a result.

So, to carry through with my example, one possible formula would be: Nebiros x 
Arahabaki x Mother Harlot, two Bad Status-types and a Dark-type. A simple way 
to get the skills on our Titania to one of these ingredients would be Titania x 
Ubelluris = Nebiros.

Hopefully, I've gotten your wheels turning.
