Omega Tempest Strike (ToE)

Omega Tempest Strike as it appears in Tales of Eternia.

This article is about the arte localized currently as "Omega Tempest". For the arte localized by the same name previously, see Void Tempest.

Omega Tempest (真空裂斬 Shinkuuretsuzan?, "Vacuum Fissure Slash"[1]) is an upgraded version of the Tempest Strike arte.

Arte Description and History

This arte was conceived in Tales of Eternia as a more powerful Wind-elemental version of Tempest Strike, with the potential to travel across the full length of a screen during battle. The arte was modified in Tales of Symphonia and all successive games, in which the user spins forward as if initiating a Tempest, then spins directly upward to continue the attack. The user then jumps backward to land close to the same position where this arte was executed.

This arte's current implementation is exceptionally useful for juggling enemies in the air for impressive combos. However, it is harder to use this arte by itself to evade enemy attacks and spells compared to Tempest and its "Strike" counterpart, Psi Tempest, since the user lands near the starting position rather than moving forward.
