In Tales of Arise, Over Limit is a temporary empowered state that a character can activate in battle. Going into Over Limit allows a character to use Artes without consuming AG as well as perform powerful Mystic Artes.

Tips for Combat

Triggering Over Limit

Tales of Arise - Perfect Evade

Over Limit is activated by taking damage or by successfully performing perfect evasions in battle. For the latter, you will need to time evasions at the right moment which requires practice and a bit of knowledge on enemy attacks.

How to Perform Perfect Evasion (or Perfect Guard)

PS4/PS5 Tilt left analog stick + R2 button (timed with the enemy’s attack)
Xbox Tilt left stick + RT button (timed with the enemy’s attack)

Game Controls

You will know if you have executed a perfect evasion correctly when you see a white flash from your character and combat slows for a brief period.

Tales of Arise - Perfect Guard

Note that unlike other playable characters, Kisara will perform a perfect guard instead of a perfect evade.

Using Mystic Artes

Tales of Arise - Mystic Artes

Mystic Artes are powerful attacks that each character can perform during their Over Limit state. These can performed by pressing a combination of two face buttons (Artes buttons) during combat.

How to Perform Mystic Artes

PS4/PS5 Press any two-button combinations of 〇, ×, △, □ (during Over Limit State)
Xbox Press any two-button combinations of A, B, X, Y (during Over Limit State)

Performing a Mystic Arte will expend your entire Over Limit gauge. To make the most out of the empowered state, it is recommended to use as many Artes as you can within the Over Limit period and use the Mystic Arte just before the gauge runs out.
