How to Activate Over Limit
What is Over Limit?
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.
Triggering Over Limit
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)|
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.
Note that unlike other playable characters, Kisara will perform a perfect guard instead of a perfect evade.
Using 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.
Enemies Can Also Enter Over Limit
The Over Limit state is not exclusive to the game’s playable characters. Enemies and bosses will be able to go in Over Limit as well so be very careful when dealing with them.
