Dispel (ToV)

Dispel as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Dispel (ディスペル Disuperu?) is a traditional healing spell that removes magical ailments from allies.

Arte Description and History[]

When the spell is activated, the targeted ally is surrounded with light and healed from magical ailments. Until Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, the spell manifested as shattered glass, but since Tales of Vesperia it started to take a more water-based form, usually involving several bubbles floating up appearing on the target party member. In earlier games, it could nullify the effect of statistical de-buffs, while Recover would be used to cure all types of status ailments. However, later games separate specific ailments into physical and magical categories, redefining the focus of Recover as a physical ailment recovery spell while using Dispel to cure the remaining possible ailments, though statistical de-buffs are often classed as magical ailments.

In Tales of Symphonia, Raine Sage is able to learn either Anti-Magic or Nullify after achieving mastery of Dispel, depending on her preference toward Strike or Technical arte branches. In the game's sequel, Dispel is an Earth-elemental spell that will influence the Elemental Grid when used. In Tales of Xillia, its sequel, and Tales of Arise, it as a superior version of Recover, removing all Recover-associated ailments from all party members. In Tales of VS., this spell also deals damage to any enemy near the target. In Tales of the Rays, this arte removes negative stat changes from a single ally and makes them temporarily immune to them.

In the PlayStation 2 version of Tales of Destiny, it is one of type jewel types that adds the negative stat change removal to the Charge action.
