Brutal Torrent (TotA)

Brutal Torrent as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Brutal Torrent (流舞崩瀑波 / 流舞崩爆破 Ryuubu Houbappa?, "Flowing Dance Crumbling Waterfall Wave / Flowing Dance Blast") is a Water-elemental arte that originated in Tales of the Abyss, used by Anise Tatlin.

Arte Description and History[]

In Tales of the Abyss, Brutal Torrent is derived from Soaring Blast, activated by using it within a fully-charged Water or Dark FOF Circle. The same movements are retained as a rising uppercut followed by a projectile that is launched diagonally toward the ground, but the burst of energy that is directed toward the ground is converted into a burst of water, generating a small splash effect that deals greater damage.

Tales of Xillia features the arte as a linked arte initiated between Leia Rolando and Rowen J. Ilbert. Similar to Tales of the Abyss, Leia's contribution to the arte is Soaring Blast, and Rowen's corresponding arte is the advanced Water-elemental spell Blue Sphere. Its sequel, Tales of Xillia 2, features an alternative combination of Leia's Rock Splitter and Rowen's Diffusional Drive. This variant has the kanji for "Wave" (?) changed to "Blast" (?).
