Fusing Demon Allies in Shin Megami Tensei V

Fusion Shin Megami Tensei V

By fusing the demons that have joined your party, you’ll be able to acquire powerful new ones. This essentially merges two demons into one with the new demon inheriting some of the skills and abilities of the demons it came from.

Fusion costs money and will depend on what demons you fuse together. The more powerful the fusion, the more Macca it will cost. You also cannot acquire a demon who is of a higher level than your own.

Purchasing Miracles in Shin Megami Tensei V

Miracles are powerful passive abilities in Shin Megami Tensei V that are always active in combat. Unlike other services in the game, Miracles require a special type of currency known as Glory which you’ll get via exploration, interacting with Amalgams and Treasure Chests, finding any hiding Miman, or beating a special type of demon known as Nigi Mitama.

It’s in your best interest to take your time to explore and farm for as much Glory as you can. Miracles provide massively beneficial passive abilities that can range from restoring your party’s health and MP after increasing a level or help fill your Magatsuhi gauge after an ambush allowing you to use powerful demon skills as soon as possible.

Fusing Essence in Shin Megami Tensei V

Fusing Essence allows you to deeper customize your abilities. By passing on what skills, abilities, and affinities your party has to the protagonist or any of the demons in his party, you’ll be able to receive advantages that you might otherwise not have.
