Avatar Perpetuation Cost is how many MP per tick (approx. 3 seconds) that it costs a Summoner to sustain a Summon, or Avatar. The cost varies depending on the level of the Summoner and which avatar is being summoned. There are some items that will reduce avatar perpetuation cost. Perpetuation cost can be lowered by certain equipment, but cannot be reduced below 0 without Refresh.
