AttacksMitsuru's fighting style and stance mirrors that of a fencer. While using her weapon, she does only slash damage to Shadows. When using her Persona, however, she specializes in Bufu skills and healing skills with a few status ailment ones as well. Magic is Penthesilea/Artemisia's highest base stat (16). All other base stats are around the same level (11-12). This makes sense, as Mitsuru's Persona does not have any physical moves and focuses solely on magic. If ice is ineffective against the opponent, Mitsuru can only really be relied on as a healing party member due to the lack of variability in her skills. Additionally, Mitsuru also has the ability to detect Shadow weaknesses, strengths and attacks while she takes the support role in the beginning of the game.
The following table contains all of Penthesilea/Artemisia's skills, the level in which they are learned and their effect. Please note that Penthesilea will not learn anything after level 55. Once Penthesilea gives rise to Artemisia, Mitsuru will continue to gain more skills. The table applies to both Persona 3 FES and Persona 3 Portable.
