How do I link base and arcane artes? Can I?

I'm fresh off the heels of Vesperia, where combos were an integral component of combat. Am I able to connect artes in the same combo?

It's been about five years since I played Abyss and can't remember whether or not I could.

Yes, but there's no Altered Artes.

I think you need an AD skill for it. There's another AD skill that lets you link 2 base artes in one combo as well.

Well, you should already be able to link base artes to arcane artes so long as they're not consecutively from the same arte line(like you can't link Fang Blade>Fang Blade Havoc, or Havoc Strike>Raging Havoc).

But there are 2 AD Skills that help combos along.
Super Chain(pAtk +60, Agi +60) allows you to link arcane artes to base artes, so you can link:

And the other is Ability Plus(pAtk +80, Agi +80), which allows you to link 2 base artes together, leading to combos like:
base>base>arcane>base or

It MIGHT be possible to do base>base>arcane>base>base, but I really don't remember and I kinda doubt it.

But no matter what, you cannot consecutively use artes from the same line. It is okay in one combo though(like Havoc Strike>Rending Fang Blade>Havoc Strike).

But I only gained those 2 AD skills via Tutti Core leveling.

Okay, great to know!
