Ventus performing the sword art Heaven and Earth.

A list of all the different weapon and attack Arts available in Unlimited Saga. To use a weapon Art, a character must have the corresponding weapon equipped (unless using Melee). Each weapon can have up to 4 different abilities on it, each one performing different attacks and doing different amounts of damage. You can change which 4 abilities are on any weapon by altering the weapons weight via the Blacksmith. (Weapon Abilities are listed below in order of weight, from lighest, down to heaviest)

By using a weapon repeatedly in battle you can 'spark' new, stronger attacks which will appear on the Reel System as different coloured panels. Once a new Art has been learnt it can be performed by stopping the Reel on the correct coloured panel during battle. Arts learnt by a character cannot be transferred or used by a different character unless they spark the Art themselves.

Most attacks increase to Level 4, with a few exceptions in Swords and Spears.
