Eternal Devastation (ToS)

Eternal Devastation as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

Eternal Devastation (崩襲地顎陣 Houshuu Chigakujin?, "Crumbling Attack Earth Jaw Position"[1]) is Presea Combatir's only arcane arte from the "Strike" branch of artes in Tales of Symphonia.

Arte Description and History

When using this arte, Presea charges her axe with Earth-elemental energy, then slams it into the ground with a powerful force. It has longer range and more hits than the base Devastation and master Mass Devastation, similarly dealing Earth-damage. This arte is from the "Strike" branch of artes, making it impossible to obtain normally if Presea is aligned with the "Technical" branch of artes. As the "Technical" branch does not have any arcane arte upgrade of Devastation, this arte does not have any "Technical" counterpart. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is Earth-elemental.
