Friendship can be increased in the following ways and may be triggered on a by-occurrence basis:
Note: The use of a one-time use item such as a Cup of Twilight will increase the chance of a friendship improvement, however it has no effect on the chance of a reduction in friendship occurring.
- Use of the Care command gives a variable boost, depending on the demon and your alignment.
- Usable once every 20 hours.
- Use of a one-time-use item Gift Melon.
- Different types give different boosts and cap at different levels.
- Successful negotiations (talk or intimidate) with members of the same species or family.
- The increase to friendship is greater with negotiations of the same family, smaller within the same species.
- Levelling up the demon.
- The increase is dependant on the demon and the level attained.
- Use of equipment with "Toast" characteristic.
- Toast is a passive type of status (coming from sets like Lover's Avatar) in which, when enabled, demons will gradually increase friendship. This is the slower way of increasing friendship with your demons.
Friendship will decrease in the following ways and may be triggered on a by-occurrence basis:
- Using the Mooch command gives a significant reduction.
- Usable once every 3 hours.
- An unsuccessful attempt at demon crystalization (using the synthesis skill).
- This causes a significant reduction.
- Killing members of the same demon species or family, or the same demon.
- The decrease to friendship is greater with kills of the same demon, smaller within the same family, and even smaller within the same species.
- Your demon dying.
- This is dependent on the demon.
