Dispel (ToV)

Dispel as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Dispel (ディスペル Disuperu?) is a traditional healing spell that removes magical ailments from allies.

Arte Description and History

When the spell is activated, the targeted ally is surrounded with light and healed from magical ailments. In earlier games, it could nullify the effect of statistical de-buffs, while Recover would be used to cure all types of status ailments. However, later games separate specific ailments into physical and magical categories, redefining the focus of Recover as a physical ailment recovery spell while using Dispel to cure the remaining possible ailments, though statistical de-buffs are often classed as magical ailments.

In Tales of Symphonia, Raine Sage is able to learn either Anti-Magic or Nullify after achieving mastery of Dispel, depending on her preference toward "Strike" or "Technical" arte branches. In the game's sequel, Dispel is an Earth-elemental spell that will influence the Elemental Grid when used. In Tales of VS., this spell also deals damage to any enemy near the target.
