Alphen Fighting Style

Tales of Arise - Alphen Fighting Style

Alphen is a swordfighter who specializes in close-quarters combat. He sports an array of fast artes that chain well together, as well as long-distance and aerial artes, making him well suited to face any foe Dahna throws at him. When Auto Mode is enabled, Alphen will primarily target enemies with lower HP during combat.

Perk

Perk Perk Effect
Flaming Edge Alphen can sacrifice HP to use a Flaming Edge, a strong, wide-reaching Blazing Sword attack. To do so hold △/y, □/x, or ◌/b, which will trigger a Flaming  Edge after he performs the corresponding arte. Flaming Edge moves cost no AG to use.
Flaming Edge moves have the added bonus of dealing extra damage to downed enemies. Plus, after learning a certain skill, you can continue to hold the button longer, letting you exchange more of Alphen’s HP for more power.

All Perk List

Boost Attack

Boost Attack Boost Attack Effect
Blazing Sword: Burning Wave Initiates a searing swing attack that burns Alphen’s own body. Able to down almost any enemy, it has a wide range and gains additional strength as more HP is sacrificed.
