Apart from a few special skills, most magic-based skills are cast with an MP, or Mana Point expenditure. The damage inflicted by Magic-based attacks are based on a demon's Magic stats.

*Apart from a few special skills, most magic-based skills are cast with an MP, or Mana Point expenditure. The damage inflicted by Magic-based attacks are based on a demon's Magic stats.
  +
*Power of HP damaging spells take user's current level and base level into account, but the formula is not simply the higher level the more powerful. Assuming the magic stat of the spell user and the defense of the target without modified stat are constant, as the user's level is getting higher, the resultant damage rises gradually but begins to drop at one point. The peak level range of spell power varies between demons, but generally it is believed between level 30 to 60. The only HP damaging spells unaffected by this phenomenon are [[Surt]]'s Ragnarok, Wind Cutter and [[Demi-fiend]]'s Magma Axis.
  +
**The recovery amount of HP healing spells (except for Diarahan, Mediarahan and Prayer) always scale with current level and does not decay like the HP damage spells.

*Instant recruit means the player may recruit the target without giving away anything or answering any inquiry if the said condition is met.
+
*Recruiting demon requires Demi-fiend's own level to be equal to or higher than the target, otherwise the target will cut off the conversation instantly. Other than that all trade skills do not take level as a requirement of proceeding the conversation.
*Adverse effect means the target is enraged if the said condition is met, it instantly ends the conversation and shifts to enemy turn. However, this does not prevent the player to talk to the same demon again.
+
*If there is more than one enemy present in the battle, one of them may interrupt the recruitment attempt and cause instant turn swap, so it is safer to kill the rest of the enemies until the target remains before starting any recruitment.

Almighty physical skills

  • Almighty-based physical skills that rely on the enemies physical resistance. Cannot be voided, drained or repelled.
  • If the target possesses almighty resistance, the user requires the auto skill "Pierce" to ignore the resistance.
Skill Cost Damage Critical Dodge Target Remark / Used by
Last Resort 1 HP Heavy No No Universal Kills user instantly.

Sacrifice 1 HP Heavy Low Low Random Kills user instantly.
Freikugel 17% HP Mega Medium Low Single Demi-fiend
Stinger 12% HP Heavy Low Low Single 40% Fatal. Dante

Magic

  • Apart from a few special skills, most magic-based skills are cast with an MP, or Mana Point expenditure. The damage inflicted by Magic-based attacks are based on a demon's Magic stats.
  • Power of HP damaging spells take user's current level and base level into account, but the formula is not simply the higher level the more powerful. Assuming the magic stat of the spell user and the defense of the target without modified stat are constant, as the user's level is getting higher, the resultant damage rises gradually but begins to drop at one point. The peak level range of spell power varies between demons, but generally it is believed between level 30 to 60. The only HP damaging spells unaffected by this phenomenon are Surt's Ragnarok, Wind Cutter and Demi-fiend's Magma Axis.
    • The recovery amount of HP healing spells (except for Diarahan, Mediarahan and Prayer) always scale with current level and does not decay like the HP damage spells.

Conversation Skills

Conversation skills revolve around requesting demons to join your ranks. Conversation skills take up a skill slot but generally do not cost any HP/MP to use. Conversation skills have a wide range of effects, ranging from recruiting demons to loaning you macca. These skills have a higher chance of working if the Demi-fiend's level is higher than the targeted demon.

  • Instant success and adverse effect of each active conversation skill have their own activating odds. If neither effect is triggered for whatever reason, the conversation will go on normally.

Recruit Skills

  • Recruiting demon requires Demi-fiend's own level to be equal to or higher than the target, otherwise the target will cut off the conversation instantly. Other than that all trade skills do not take level as a requirement of proceeding the conversation.
  • If there is more than one enemy present in the battle, one of them may interrupt the recruitment attempt and cause instant turn swap, so it is safer to kill the rest of the enemies until the target remains before starting any recruitment.
