Appearances[edit | edit source]
Almagest is an extraordinarily powerful Holy-elemental spell that strikes all party members and inflicts Sap. It can be used by Exdeath, Enuo, Neo Shinryu, and Hades. If Shield Dragon, Vilia, or Hades are caught and released, they will cast Almagest.
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.
Almagest damages all units within a two-square radius emanating from the point of casting, does damage equal to user's max HP to current HP. Only the monsters Behemoth and Ultima Demon have access to the spell, though it can be used if the player recruits the former into the party via an Orator.
Almagest is one of Exdeath's HP attacks. He surrounds himself in a field of dark energy and explodes. Exdeath learns the ground version of the attack at Level 8 and the aerial version at Level 30. The attack costs 40 CP to equip and 300 AP to master.
Almagest is one of Exdeath's HP attacks, costing 30 CP to equip and 130 AP to master.
Almagest is the Limit Break for the 4-Star Ranked version of Exdeath. It deals Dark element damage to all enemies and can inflict up to two random status effects on each enemy hit.

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".
