Sync grounddasher

Synch uses Ground Dasher

Synch the Gale (烈風のシンク Reppuu no Shinku), localized as Sync the Tempest, is one of the playable boss-characters in ACS. Synch comes from Tales of the Abyss and is one of the Six God-Generals. He always wears a mask in order to hide his identity as a replica of the Fon Master; it was Guy Cecil who first saw his face after a battle at Choral Castle.

Synch fights his enemies with martial arts similar to Anise Tatlin's and uses powerful fonic spells similar to that of Jade Curtiss'. He is also assisted in battle by the other five members of the Six God-Generals as well as their leader, Van Grants, making him an even more powerful adversary in battle. Synch is fast and can overwhelm enemies with speed and precision.

Using Synch is a little difficult, but he is very powerful.

Character FactsEdit

General Tips & UsageEdit

  • Synch is unique as his moveset contains a lot of very useful assist artes, ranging from Eclair Larme, Bloody Howling, and Thunder Blade, all of which allow Synch to continue pressuring his opponent or get in on his opponent safely. Top it all off with a very solid damage output and good defensive options like Absolute and Garyoukuuha (Dragon Shot), and you have one scary character. 
  • His biggest weakness is how reliant Synch is on TP. Most of his most useful artes like Bloody Howling and Absolute require large amounts of TP for one arte, so a Synch players needs to be economic and properly balance risk-and-reward.
  • Synch has an excellent jumping height, and an above average HP, damage output, movement speed and dash length.
  • Synch receives 40% more damage from Earth Elemental attacks. He also receives 40% and 20% less damage from Wind and Light Elemental Attacks respectively. (Please refer to this page for more information on ACS Elements).
  • Synch can perform all of the basic movements in ACS.
    • His High Jump is lower than his regular jump.
    • His Double Jump far exceeds the screen's height.
    • His Forward Step and Backward Leap have above average range and speed, but his Backward Leap doesn't go as far as his Forward Step.
  • Synch only has 2 basic ground melee attacks (A, B) and 1 aerial melee attack (A or B)
    • His B ground melee attack launches the enemy to the air.
    • His aerial attack slightly tosses the enemy upward.
    • If Synch is running while the A button is pressed, he will perform his second ground melee attack instead.
  • Synch doesn't have any artes useable in mid-air.
  • During Overlimit, Some of his Mystic Artes have lesser TP costs.
  • Outside of Synch's chain order, he can only summon 2 of the Six God-Generals at the same time during battle.
    • If he summons more than that, he will still call them but no Six God-General will appear and Synch will be vulnerable for a second.
    • You can summon the same God-General twice without any problems.
  • His chain order consist of:
    • Melee > Set A > Set B > Set C > Mystic
    • If the spells Turbulence, Flare Tornado, Gravity and Frigid Coffin are used in a combo within the chain order, it will have no casting time as long as the combo counter exceeds 2 hits.
