Air Thrust (エアスラスト Easurasuto?) is a recurring Wind spell in the Tales Series, usually of the Intermediate Tier class.
Arte Description and History
In both games, Air Thrust surrounds the target with sharp blades of wind, dealing many hits quickly while slightly lifting the enemy into the air. This spell is excellent for creating party combos, because it can increase the hit count considerably quickly, while preventing potential enemy knockdown and leaving it open for further attacks.
In Tales of Symphonia, this spell is from the Technical arte branch for Genis Sage, its Strike counterpart being Air Blade. Although Genis can choose between these two spells, Kratos Aurion and Zelos Wilder will acquire it regardless of their disposition.
In Tales of Hearts, if either Kohak Hearts or Hisui Hearts are summoned into battle using the Connect Command panel, and controlling the opposite character to use both this spell and Cure at the same time, the combination arte becomes Fairy Circle. If Hisui or Beryl Benito are summoned using this spell and Stone Wall, the combination arte becomes Add Pressure.
