Almagest is one of the abilities used by Neo Exdeath in the Deltascape 4.0 (Savage) duty. It deals extreme damage to all party members and causes an uncleansable damage over time effect that lasts 15 seconds. It is used during the entire fight at regular intervals. Without proper damage mitigation and quick, repeated area healing, it will wipe the party in seconds.

Etymology[edit | edit source]

Almagest is the name of the ancient book written by the Greek philosopher Ptolemy. It presents an Earth-centered view of the solar system and was accepted as an astronomical authority for over a thousand years. The book was originally titled the "Syntax Mathematica" but was commonly referred to as Hē Megalē Syntaxis, or "The Great Treatise". As with many ancient Greek works, the Almagest was preserved to the modern day by way of Islamic scholars; Almagest is a rough transliteration of the Arabic al-Majisti, "the Majestic One", which is itself a translation of the original Greek superlative megiste, "greatest".
