Judith

Judith using Rakugetsusou.

Judith (ジュディス Judisu) is the second of two playable characters from Tales of Vesperia. Judith is a mature and bold (especially so because of her choice of clothing) member of the Kritya tribe. She often flirts with Yuri Lowell and the rest of the male members from Tales of Vesperia.

Judith wields a spear during battle and excels in aerial combat. She can easily perform long and wild aerobatic combos using her vast arsenal of aerial artes in conjunction with Jump Cancels and Dash Cancels. All of her stats are also considered above average as compared to other ACS characters.

This character is not very easy to use so she is recommended for intermediate and veteran players.

General Tips & UsageEdit

  • Judith is an airbased rushdown character. Only problem is that air control in ACS is not as valuable as it would be in other games. Because of that, Judith's place in the game is very awkward, as some of her most defining qualities are just not very useful. However, she still manages to be a very powerful character for her damage output. If you learn the Beginner's Instant Kill Combo, you can probably win a match in just two or three combos. To top it all off, if you choose to, you can make the combo unbreakable via Overlimit by keeping your opponent in the sky with her elaborate air combos. Other than that, Jump Cancel can potentially make it fairly confusing on a blocking opponent if you're creative enough, and if needed, you can space with Gekkou Karasu and Sengetsujin.
  • Her main flaws include escaping pressure and keeping herself safe after getting your attacks blocked. She doesn't have many moves with a Fast TTS and large hitbox, making it difficult for her to escape relentless characters like Shing Meteoryte or Rid Hershel. Preventing yourself from getting punished after a blocked attack is a bit of an ordeal and often unreliable. Judith is one of the hardest characters to learn, but she's very fun and potentially rewarding; just be prepared to practice a lot.
  • Judith has excellent jumping height, above average movement speed, dash length, damage output and an average HP.
  • Judith has an average to above average defense against Guard Break.
  • Judith receives 10% & 20% more damage from Fire & Earth Elemental attacks respectively.and 10% & 20% less damage from Wind & Water Elemental attacks respectively (Please refer to this page for more information on ACS Elements).
  • Judith can perform all the basic movements in ACS.
    • Additionally, Judith can perform a Quick Drop by pressing ↓↓ while in mid-air to immediately descend to the ground. This move has a moderate delay after use.
    • She can also use her Quick Drop while executing an arte in mid-air to cancel it. This move is known as her Quick Drop Cancel (QDC). Using this would immediately end the combo.
    • Judith can perform a Triple Jump instead of the regular Double Jump which most ACS characters have.
    • Judith's High Jump is one of the highest in the game. She can also use her Double Jump after a High Jump.
    • Judith's air dashes sends her either straight forward or backward.
    • Judith's Forward Step and Backward Leap have above average length and speed allowing her to easily evade some ground-based spells.
  • Judith has two basic ground melee attacks (A and B) and one riser attack (C then tap ↑). She also has three basic aerial attacks (A, B and C).
    • Pressing A after her A ground melee attack makes Judith perform her B ground melee attack.
    • Her B ground melee attack kicks an enemy in mid-air. Judith also becomes airborne, allowing her to initiate aerial combos.
    • Her A and B aerial melee attacks can be comboed for up to 3 hits. Pressing A repeatedly in mid-air for 3 times also produces the same effect.
    • Her C aerial melee attack immediately disables enemies upon hit.
    • Her A ground melee has great horizontal range, but her B ground melee attack will miss if her A ground melee attack hits at its tip, or near its tip. So, use her C ground melee attack instead.
  • Judith can use her Overlimit whilst in mid-air during a combo.
  • Judith's Overlimit Blast sends an enemy straight upward.
  • Unleashing Overlimit while Judith is being attacked cuts its duration by 1/2.
  • Most of Judith's aerial artes and some ground artes that leave Judith in mid-air can be canceled by doing a forward air dash just before the arte has been fully executed. This move is known as Dash Cancel (DC).
    • Judith resets her chain order after performing a Dash Cancel. This allows her to extend the combo further.
    • Judith can only use one (1) Dash Cancel per combo.
    • She can use her Dash Cancel again after the combo ends or if she unleashes her Overlimit.
    • During Overlimit Lv1, Judith can use two (2) Dash Cancels per combo.
      • She can combine this with her default one (1) Dash Cancel, allowing her to use three (3) Dash Cancels in a single combo.
      • Using two Overlimit Lv1 in a single combo allows her two use a maximum of five (5) Dash Cancels in a single combo.
    • During Overlimit Lv2, Judith can use an infinite number Dash Cancels for until the duration of Overlimit ends.
      • Once the duration of Overlimit Lv2 ends during the combo, she is allowed to use two (2) more Dash Cancels for that specific combo only.
  • Most of Judith's artes whether used on the ground or in mid-air can be canceled by performing a jump just before the arte has been fully executed. This move is known as Jump Cancel (JC).
    • Holding ↑ while an arte is being executed allows you to use Jump Cancel easier.
    • Judith resets her chain order after performing a Jump Cancel. This allows her to extend the combo further.
    • Judith can only use two (2) Jump Cancels per combo. The number of Jump Cancels she can perform is somehow affected by the number of jumps (Double and Triple Jump) she uses before executing an arte in mid-air.
    • She can use her Jump Cancel again after the combo ends or if she unleashes her Overlimit.
    • During Overlimit Lv1, Judith can use three (3) Jump Cancels per combo.
      • She can combine this with her default two (2) Jump Cancels, allowing her to use five (5) Jump Cancels in a single combo.
      • Using two Overlimit Lv1 in a single combo allows her two use a maximum of eight (8) Jump Cancels in a single combo.
    • During Overlimit Lv2, Judith can use an infinite number Jump Cancels for until the duration of Overlimit ends.
      • Once the duration of Overlimit Lv2 ends during the combo, she is allowed to use two (2) more Jump Cancels for that specific combo only.
    • Using Jump Cancel consecutively in a single combo costs Judith a very small amount of TP.
      • Normally, only the 2nd Jump Cancel has the TP cost.
      • During Overlimit Lv1, the 1st and 3rd Jump Cancels will have TP costs.
      • During Overlimit Lv2, all Jump Cancels will have TP costs.
  • Refer to Judith's Beginner's Instant Kill Combo for a simulation on how to use Jump and Dash Cancels.
  • All of Judith's artes (other than her Mystic artes) power drastically decreases as the combo counter increases.
  • Judith's chain order comprises of:
    • Melee > Base > Altered > Arcane > Burst > Mystic
    • Judith can perform a Dash Cancel (DC) while executing Melee or a Base, Altered, and Arcane to reset the chain back to Melee.
      • Normally, you can only use Dash Cancel once per combo but there are many ways to reset this and allow Judith to use it more than once such as using Overlimit during mid-combo.
      • During Overlimit Lv1, Judith can normally use Dash Cancel twice (2) per combo.
      • During Overlimit Lv2, Judith can use an infinite number Dash Cancels.
    • Judith can also perform two (2) Jump Cancels (JC) while executing Melee or a Base, Altered, and Arcane to reset the chain back to Melee.
      • Normally, you can only use Jump Cancel two (2) times per combo but there are many ways to reset this and allow Judith to use it more than twice such as using Overlimit during mid-combo.
      • During Overlimit Lv1, Judith can normally use Jump Cancel three (3) times per combo.
      • During Overlimit Lv2, Judith can use an infinite number Jump Cancels.
      • Not all artes are Jump Cancel-able.
    • Judith can also use her Quick Drop to cancel a Melee or a Base, Altered, and Arcane. Using Quick Drop Cancel (QDC) will end the chain.

        Tales of ACS v501:24

        Tales of ACS v5.503 Judith Instant Kill Combo 1 (198 Hits)

        Judith performing a repetitive combo while connecting them together using Jump and Dash Cancels.

      • Note 1: It's easier to use Jump Cancel if you hold ↑ while the Judith executes an arte. Be ready to press A to attack, this might require you some practice if your new at using Judith.
      • Note 2: You have the choice of using Kisaragi or Kogetsusen here. Both artes work fine.
        • For Kisaragi, don't use it to fast or too slow as you might either allow the enemy to air-tech or end up using Kisaragi on the ground and disabling the enemy. For beginner's, Kisaragi is the better arte to use since it gives you ample of time to input Samidare Tsubame.
        • For Kogetsusen, press the command just as Judith touches the ground. You can also input the command before she to touch the ground but not too early or it will fail. This is recommended for intermediate and veteran players since Kogetsusen allows you to switch sides with the enemy if → is held while the arte is being executed.
      • Note 3: Wait for the enemy to touch the ground before using Samidare Tsubame.
      • Note 4: You have the choice of using Engetsu or Gekka Tenshoujin here. On which arte to use depends on the following:
        • Use Engetsu if your going to extend the combo using a Jump Cancel.
        • Use Gekka Tenshoujin if your going to extend the combo using either a Dash Cancel or Overlimit Lv1.
      • Note 5: The move you will use here depends on what arte was previously used. See Note 3 for more details. If your using Overlimit Lv1, you have to use a Dash Cancel before attacking the enemy with Judith's basic 3-hit Aerial Attack A combo.
      • Note 6: You can only use Fuujin Shougekka during Overlimit status only. Press D just about the end of Judith's Overlimit. Also as a side not, you don't need to be in Overlimit to use Haou Rougetsusou.
  • A very easy Judith instant kill combo made for illustrating the use of Jump Cancels and Dash Cancels.

Rita Judith Instant Kill ComboEdit

    Tales of ACS v501:03

    Tales of ACS v5.503 Judith Instant Kill Combo 2 (120 Hits)

    Judith and Rita's 120 hit combo.

    • Requirements & Notes:
      • 85% TP; Overlimit Gauge Lv1 or above.
      • Note 1: Use Kogetsusen after the enemy lands on the ground. Press and hold → to side switch with the enemy. Don't forget that the commands for → and ← will reverse.
      • Note 2: It is easier to use Jump Cancel if you press and hold ↑ while an arte is being executed.
      • Note 3: The timing here is a little tricky. Press → F in just before Judith slashes the moon from Kogetsusen. The real command for Rita's Fireball is ← F but since you will switch sides with the enemy after Kogetsusen, press → F instead. You can also spam the command but you might end up unleashing Judith's Overlimit as well. Lastly, the number of fire balls that Rita should use must be more than 2 but less than 10 to continue the combo.
      • Note 4: Wait for the enemy to land on the ground before using Hiengekka.
      • Note 5: You can only use Fuujin Shougekka during Overlimit status only. Press D just about the end of Judith's Overlimit. Also as a side not, you don't need to be in Overlimit to use Haou Rougetsusou.
  • Another Judith instant kill combo demonstrating how to use cameo support artes to reset her Jump Cancel count.
  • You can no longer use cameo support artes when the combo counter exceeds 10 hits. Also, there are only a few selected artes that can be used to link with Judith's cameo support artes.
