Legend of Legaia: Duel Saga

Arts FAQ

By Nicolas Dufer (

I hope this list is now complete and does not contain too many mistakes,
if you find any, thanks for telling me so I can correct :)
If you have any other questions feel free to email.
In particular, I need the location of every scroll in this game, I only
remember a few and I won't go back to check for the older ones.
I just hope this FAQ helps you!

The Arts in Legend of Legaia are divided into 5 categories:

Normal Arts:
You learn them by performing the combination during fight; they are you main
source of Arts Points (AP). The longer the combination, the more powerful the
strikes will be, but comparatively you will get less AP.

Super Arts:
Same as Normal Arts, you learn them by performing the moves during combat, but
you need to have at least as much AP as needed by the Art to perform it, they
are more powerful than normal but cost AP. I found them less useful when you
start having the Hyper Arts.

Hyper Arts:
They can only be learnt through events, scrolls and leveling up of other Hyper
arts. Mostly they come by two, with the lower form accumulating xp (you can see
it in the status window, looking at the art descriptions). Using the lower form
in combat gives it some XP, and when it reaches 100, the higher form is
unlocked. I noted the lower forms with a -> where they unlock the higher form
in the next line.

Variable Arts:
These Arts are a form of cooperation between two players, for one of the most
powerful, but costly attack of the game. Every character has two Variable Arts,
noted 1: and 2:. To perform this move in combat, you need to have two
characters with at least 80 AP, with one performing the 1: while the other
performs 2:, attacking the same enemy (the character having performed 1: will
start the Variable Art, and 2: will finish. this has no relation with character
speed or attack order). You need to perform the Variable Art move (6 strikes)
and ONLY THOSE, performing other moves before or after will cancel this. YOU
CAN NOT USE THEM before KAZAN teaches the first variable to Lang.

Mystic Art:
Every Player has one; this is the most powerful attack, cooperation between the
player and the Origin.
To learn it you have to perform it in combat, which is only possible when the
conditions below are met:
- Less than 1/2 HP left
- Full AP (100)
- At least 100 MP left
Same as the Variable Arts, to perform the Mystic Art you have to enter the
moves (7 strikes) and ONLY THEM!!

Most of the Normal, Super and Hyper arts can be chained, by using the last
moves of the art you finish as the first move(s) of the one you chain. This
leads to the most powerful combination of the game, but even chaining only one
move allow you to put more Arts in one attack.

MAYA is an exception however, none of her Arts can be chained, as they form the
incantation to one spell (figures)
And every of her art is from one of the elemental class

You will find below a list of the arts formatted as follow:

Name of the player (Title he gets for mastering all arts)

And the columns in order describing:

-Name of the Art (Approximate translation from the Japanese)
-Moves to perform coded: U(p) D(own) L(eft) R(ight)
-AP cost/gain (these can change due to any AP cost/gain modifiers you equip)
-The Japanese pronunciation of the Art (they say it sometimes)
