Arte Description and History
Retribution can be considered the polar opposite of Holy Song since it inflicts random, negative status ailments on all enemies instead of adding positive status effects to the caster's party. Because the arte affects the entire field, it is impossible to avoid once performed unless it is interrupted with a Unison Attack or mystic arte.
