Arte Description and History
When activated, the user spins and taps the ground with their weapon, causing giant icicles to sprout from the ground. The user then slashes at the icicles to force them to explode, causing damage to all enemies. This attack is not fatal, but leaves the enemy with very little HP. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World this arte is Ice-elemental, while Tales of the Rays it is Water-elemental. In Norse mythology, Fimbulvetr, commonly rendered in English as Fimbulwinter, is the immediate prelude to the events of Ragnarök. It simply means "Mighty Winter".
