Does anyone have some sort of tips or clues to how it works?
Fate system tips
I know if you can get it to 5 with someone you can trade demons with that person mid mission. But as for tips as to get is to go up....I got nothing, I'm still trying to figure that one out myself.
no, that's 4; 5 is another fusable demon
Woops my bad. That seems like a 5 level thing but a fusable demon is a better reward to get at 5th level.
It seems like a good tactic to just blast through the story related events, then you could take your time deciding who you wanted to fate up afterwards.
One thing to keep in mind is that it takes a sizable amount of time to level up your first allies (I think it takes a minimum of 2 days of almost constant talking for Io to get to fate 3), where the others level up fast (this may just have been perceived because I was getting into the story). Also, near the end I didn't think I'd get more than 3-4 people to 5, but because allies get fate points during all the story events, most of them leveled up completely with almost no interaction--I never talked to 2 people, so they were the only ones left below 4.
