Arte Description and History
Storm was first conceived in Tales of Phantasia as a strong gust of wind that encompasses the entire visible battle field, blowing small rocks and other debris across the screen to damage all enemies. In the Playstation versions of both Tales of Phantasia and Tales of Destiny, the debris is the source of all damage from this spell, and they must make contact with an enemy to deal damage, making this spell most effective against larger enemies. Because the debris cannot pass through enemies, other enemies may be protected from the spell damage.
The GameBoy Advance version of Tales of Phantasia removes Storm from Arche Klein's movelist. All other versions of this game have the spell available to her.
After Tales of Phantasia and Tales of Destiny, the first two games of the series, Storm remains unused in any original titles, making it one of the few spells from this era that did not become a classic mainstay of the typical mage. The spell did not reappear in any form until the release of the Playstation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny, which redefines the spell's effects to create a modest force of straight-line winds moving perpendicular to the 2D battle field, generating a small dust cloud centered around the battle field itself.
