All the Arts and Effects in Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Arts are strong attacks that do more damage than normal attacks. These arts can also be used for buffing or healing other people at your party. So it is a powerful ability to have and can change the tide of the battle if used properly.

Arts are mainly divided into five categories. And there is also an extra category called chained art, which can only be used if certain requirements are met. All the six categories of the arts are:

  • Talent Arts: Talent arts are class-based art that can be unleashed after the art meter is full. It is a stronger attack that deals tonnes of damage to the enemies.
  • Combat Arts: Combat arts are those that are used to deal damage or buff attacks. These are like typical abilities in a game.
  • Master Arts: These arts are unlocked after maxing out a class. But the arts itself is not class-locked. So you can use these arts in any class after unlocking.
  • Fusion Arts: Fusion arts are created when two arts are combined. They stack with each other to make an even stronger attack.
  • Ouroboros Arts: Ouroboros arts can be used when characters are in the Ouroboros form. These arts also function like the talent arts in Ouroboros form.
  • Chain Arts: During attacks, if the party TP reaches 100% or more, an art can be unleashed. This is chain art.
