XC1 Icon Debuff Arts Seal.png

Arts Seal is a debuff in Xenoblade Chronicles. It prevents the victim from using any arts that are not talent arts. Arts that are in progress will still complete, and auto-attacks are not affected. A character under Arts Seal cannot initiate or participate in a chain attack.

Arts Seal is a very powerful debuff. On the party, it takes away a lot of what allows each character to do their job, while on enemies, it renders them almost a non-threat for a while. These exceptions are Shulk and Melia, whose talent arts are easy enough to access that they are substantially less hobbled.

Some boss battles are ended early when the boss uses a specific art. These bosses are always immune to Arts Seal.
