Skill Inheritance was introduced in May, 2016 and was one of the most game breaking aspects to come to Puzzle and Dragons. It provided players with an avenue to utilize duplicate monsters as well as lending customization to their favourite teams. Skill Inheritance would allow you to pick and choose what actives you wanted while providing the opportunity to use a stronger base card.
However, with the most recent patch, the Skill Inheritance system (renamed to Assist System) will be receiving an overhaul to make it easier to transfer skills around along with providing a stat bonus to same colour bases and inherits.
This article will only be focusing on the changes to Skill Inheritance along with how the actual process works and the other changes going live in the patch will be addressed separately. You can read more about King Tans HERE.

In essence, Skill Inheritance allows you to customize your cards to your liking as you can utilize actives that come from normally non-synergistic monsters on a team.
