Arte Description and History
When this spell is used, usually three arrows made out of ice are created and shot at the targeted enemy. Depending on which game it appears in, the ice arrows will either appear above the user or the enemy.
In Tales of Legendia, this spell appears in Will Raynard's arsenal of Crystal Eres, localized under the name of Ice Arrows, though when used by enemy monsters, the spell's name appears as the original Ice Needles. The reason for this discrepancy is unknown, but appears simply to be an oversight on the part of the game's localizing team.
