Arte Description and History

Sylph Arte (ToX)

Sylph as it appears in Tales of Xillia.

As the arte summoning the Spirit of Wind, all of the artes are wind-related. Sylph first appears in Tales of Phantasia under the command of Claus F. Lester. When summoned, Sylphs create a tornado localized around one enemy. This tornado effect follows Sylph in its appearance in Tales of Eternia, where it will actually lift enemies into the air. As a consumable item in Tales of Destiny, Sylph uses cutting gales to slice the enemy instead.

Sylphystia in Tales of Destiny 2 combines the two effects, with Sylph attacking with cutting wind before summoning tornadoes which fling all the enemies into the air. Summon: Wind in Tales of Symphonia is somewhat different, where the three faeries who collectively make up Sylph do successive attacks. Sephie attacks first by swinging her sword upward to create a cyclone, followed by Yutis, who fires off some arrows, and finishing off with Fairess, who tackles her opponents with her shield. Sylph is also the name of a skill in Tales of Zestiria that enables a chance to reduce Wind-elemental damage.
