Rending Thrust (TotA)

Rending Thrust as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Rending Thrust (穿衝破 Senshouha?, "Piercing Rending Thrust") is a Warrior strike arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History[]

When this arte is activated, the user thrusts forward with their weapon and then follows through with an uppercut from their other arm, lifting the enemy. This arte is usually learned well into the game, but it is powerful compared to most other base artes that Warrior characters can obtain. This arte is also very effective for combo-linking due to the lifting element, which allows users to chain into other artes without dropping the enemy or giving it a chance to recover. In Tales of the Abyss, this skill can be used within a complete Earth or Dark FOF Circle to transform it into Rending Quake.

In Tales of the Rays, this arte never appeared in the Global release of the game prior to its shutdown due the offensive name of the weapon it is tied to, which is the Bastard Sword.
