Nebilim shuuharekkoujin

Nebilim using Shouha Rekkousen.

Nebilim is the replica of Professor Gelda Nebilim (ゲルダ・ネビリム Geruda Nebirimu) from Tales of the Abyss. She is the result of Jade Curtiss and Saphir's act in trying to revive their former teacher by using Fomicry (creation of replicas using Fonons). The original Gelda Nebilim was killed in an accident caused by Jade's failed attempt in using the Seventh Fonon. The Nebilim replica's personality is evil and only concerned with herself, shown when she absorbs fonons from other living things for sustenance. The Nebilim replica wields Luke fon Fabre's Nebilim catalyst sword in one hand and Jade Curtiss' Blood Pain catalyst spear in the other as her main weapons.

She possesses a few physical attacks and many strong spells which she can further augment with different elements by using FOF Changes. Similar to other boss characters in ACS, her stats range from above average to excellent with not being able to jump as her only weakness. Nebilim is easy to use and is very powerful. She is an excellent character for beginners to practice.

    • Requirements and Notes:
      • TP for Gravity.
      • Note 1: Depending on your distance from the enemy, it is much easier to connect Fuujin Kousenshou if your close to the enemy. This is the trickiest part of this combo as it is very difficult to control Nebilim when she starts to run. Use the shortcut button for Fuujin Kousenshou for faster execution.
      • Note 2: Wait for the enemy to land on the ground before using Shouha Rekkousen. You can also use Big Bang after this arte but it is not recommended since the damage of Big Bang decreases as the combo counter increases
