Frigid Blast (TotA)

Frigid Blast as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Frigid Blast (絶破烈氷撃 Zeppa Rehhyougeki?, "Sever Destruction Intense Ice Attack"[1]) is an Ice-elemental melee arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

Frigid Blast involves the user concentrating ice energy into their palm. They then release it in an icy explosion. In Tales of the Abyss, this arte can only be used when Luke fon Fabre or Asch uses Raging Blast in a fully-charged Water or Dark FOF Circle. In Tales of Vesperia, this is an altered arte learned with the "Great Deluge" skill equipped while using Final Gale, until it is mastered. After this, it is available as a separate arte that does not require the skill to be equipped in order to be used.
