Whirling Assault (ToX)

Whirling Assault as it appears in Tales of Xillia.

Whirling Assault (アサルトダンス Asarutodansu?, "Assault Dance") is a martial arte primarily associated with Milla Maxwell.

Arte Description and History[]

Upon activation, Milla performs a deadly dance with her blade to cleave her enemy target from multiple angles. She first rushes at the enemy to perform a right horizontal slash, followed by a diagonal upward slash that launches the enemy into the air. She then follows it with a spin on the ground and a diagonal downward slash, forcing the enemy onto the ground. Milla then performs another clockwise spin along with a slash before finishing with another diagonal downward slash.

Ludger Will Kresnik can use Whirling Assault after obtaining the Arte Tome: "Assault Dancer" LU (絶技の書「襲撃連舞」青年用 Zetsugi no Sho [Shuugekirenmai] Seinen-you?) at affinity level 5 with Milla. While his initial movements mimic the dance performed by Milla, Ludger spins in the opposite direction to mirror Milla's movements during the penultimate strike, following with a left horizontal slash. In Tales of Berseria, this arte is Non-elemental and has a chance to inflict the Paralysis status ailment. In Tales of Crestoria, this arte decreases the enemy's ATK by 5% for two turns.
