Recover (ToD PSX)

Recover as it appears in Tales of Destiny (PSX).

Recover (リカバー Rikabaa?) is a traditional spell that cures physical ailments. In recent games in the Tales series, it is one of the first support spells obtained.

Arte Description and History

This spell is one of the later support spells obtained by Mint Adenade in Tales of Phantasia. It is considered the superior version of Antidote, as it can heal nearly any kind of physical ailment. As the series progressed, Recover eventually became the first status recovery spell to be learned, replacing Antidote.

In Tales of Symphonia, by using this spell repeatedly, Raine Sage will eventually learn Purify or Restore, depending on which technique branch she is heading toward. In Tales of the Abyss, if Natalia Luzu Kimlasca-Lanvaldear uses this spell within a fully charged Wind or Light FOF Circle, it will become Purify instead. In Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, after a class has mastered this spell, it is possible for them to learn Purify. This was removed in the second installation. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, the spell is influenced by the Water element and will thus influence the Elemental Grid if used.
