Persona 3 Reload (2)

Persona 3 Reload introduces a groundbreaking feature to the beloved series: Theurgy skills or Fusion Spells. This new mechanic adds a fresh layer of strategy and depth to the game’s combat, allowing players to unleash devastating attacks that can turn the tide of battle. As players navigate through the dark corridors of Tartarus and the complexities of their daily lives, understanding and mastering Theurgy becomes crucial.

Theurgy is a powerful mechanic unique to each character in the game, unlocked on June 13th. It represents a potent skill set that characters can access by loading a special cartridge into their Evokers, summoning their Personas to perform epic ultimate attacks. These Theurgy attacks require a fully charged Theurgy gauge, which, interestingly, fills up differently for each character, adding a layer of strategy to the game.

Charging the Theurgy Gauge

The Theurgy attack gauge, displayed alongside each character’s health in the battle UI, is key to unleashing these powerful skills. It’s charged through various actions in combat, specific to each character, and once full, can be activated by navigating to the Theurgy menu. This introduces a strategic element to combat, as players must decide how best to fill their gauges and when to deploy these potent abilities.

Every character’s Theurgy attack in Persona 3 Reload

Each member of Persona 3 Reload’s cast has a primary and secondary Theurgy attack, each with unique charging mechanisms and effects. From Yukari Takeba’s wind-based Cyclone Arrow to Aigis’s devastating Orgia Mode, the variety and strategic depth these attacks bring to combat are unparalleled. Whether it’s utilizing Fuuka Yamagishi’s supportive Oracle or charging into battle with Shinjiro Aragaki’s Bleeding Fury, mastering these Theurgy attacks is essential for navigating the challenges of Persona 3 Reload.

Here’s every character’s Theurgy attack, and how to charge each of them.
