Guardian Frost as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Guardian Frost (守護氷槍陣 Shugo Hyousoujin?, "Protection Ice Spear Position"[1]) is an Ice-elemental defensive arte in the Tales series.

Arte History and Description

The user spins around with the edge of their sword on the ground, creating a circle around them. Then, the user thrusts their sword into the ground, and icicles arise in a circle, attacking the enemy. The attack has the possibility of healing the user, much like the Guardian Field arte it is derived from. In Tales of the Abyss, this arte exists as an FOF Change of Guardian Field, used in a fully-charged Water or Dark FOF Circle. Van Grants can use it as an arcane arte of his own volition or as an FOF Change.
