Arte Description and History

Revitalize (ToS)

Revitalize as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

This spell has been one of the most effective but costly ways to revive the entire party with. When used, a giant glyph appears under the entire battlefield, healing all allies significantly at a fixed rate. This tends to be the most potent healing spell in each game, but because of this, the casting time and TP costs are often very high to prevent its constant use.

In Tales of Symphonia, this spell is obtained only if Raine Sage is following the "Technical" arte path and has used Healing Circle enough times. It is the only spell in the game that has a chain of three prerequisites, but it is not part of a "fourth tier" of spells, classified among other advanced spells. In Tales of the Abyss Revitalize is used by Tear Grants as the fourth Fonic Hymn, representing the element of Water. Unlike many of her hymns, which are obtained through event scenes, she learns this spell normally through leveling. During the casting phase, she sings the fourth verse of the Grand Fonic Hymn after the initial incantation. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, this spell becomes Light-elemental and therefore influences the Elemental Grid if used. Raine uses this spell if the Unison Attack is activated with Water as the primary element in the Elemental Grid.

In Tales of Xillia', this arte is used by combining Leia Rolando's and Elize Lutus's strongest healing spells, Cure and Nurse respectively, and can be seen as spreading Cure's potent healing to all allies, which is Nurse's capability. In it and its sequel, Tales of Xillia 2, it also capable of removing negative status ailments.
