Arte Description and History
Delay is an arte and skill that involves slowing some aspect down, though what particular aspect it affects changes with each iteration. Its original spell form in Tales of Phantasia involves decreasing the movement speed of one enemy, and this effect is revisited in Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X. Its effect changes to decreasing the target's casting speed in Tales of Eternia, which is the effect that Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 2, Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3, and Tales of Eternia Online replicate. Delay also appears as a passive skill attached to certain equipment in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, where it decreases the party's escape speed as a demerit.
