Arte Description and History
When activated, a glowing circle will appear beneath the spellcaster, and the symbols that appear on the selected target when using Barrier appears on all party members on the battlefield. While this eliminates the need to cast Barrier four separate times for each character, the duration of the defense boost is shorter by comparison. In Tales of Symphonia, this spell is from Raine Sage's "Technical" arte branch, which focuses more on area-of-effect spells. Permaguard is the equivalent in the "Strike" branch, which focuses on single-target spells.
