Apocalyptica (ToX2)

Apocalyptica as it appears in Tales of Xillia 2.

Apocalyptica (ジ・エンド Ji Endo?, "The End") is an arte that has represented both Will Raynard's mystic arte in Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3 and a strike arte used by Ludger Kresnik and Victor in Tales of Xillia 2.

Arte Description and History[]

In Radiant Mythology 3, when this arte is activated, Will calls upon the power of his Crystal Eres to freeze the area, dispelling all heat energy until a jagged formation of ice forms around his target. Encased and trapped within solid ice, the enemy is unable to escape as Will stomps forward slowly, edging closer to the helpless victim. Will raises his hammer, slamming it against the trapped enemy several times before ending with a jumping strike that violently destroys the ice while the encased enemy is crushed beneath the weapon. Since this arte first appears in Radiant Mythology 3, it also marks the first time that Will has access to a mystic arte, having lacked one in Tales of Legendia, like the rest of its cast. Since Will is a Crystal Eren, this is his first arte that features a means of dealing damage directly to an enemy using the physical force of his weapon.

This arte also appears in Tales of Xillia 2, accessible only while Ludger's chromatus ability is active. Apocalyptica can be activated through a button combo input, which results in a series of regular attacks, followed by the arte itself. As with Will's attack, Ludger strikes down upon the enemy with his weapon, crushing it into the ground and generating a massive shockwave. Victor is also able to use this arte in his chromatus transformation.

In Tales of Asteria, Master of Elements, Act 12, Schwartz can call Dark Will to use this arte under the name Dark Will no "The End" (ダークウィルの「ジ・エンド」?). In Tales of the Rays, it is Full Chromatus Ludger's Dark-elemental reward mirrage arte.
