Talises are a weapon category in Phantasy Star Online 2. They are a ranged casting weapon usable by both Forces and Techers.
Talises are two-part weapons: the conduit attached to the player's arm, and the cards that the player holds in the right hand. The cards are thrown as a basic attack, which gives them a range advantage over their other casting counterparts.
As opposed to Rods, Talises have a lower T-ATK value than the former as a counterbalance to their versatile range. Thus, Talises sacrifice raw power for utility. This problem can be alleviated with the skill Talis Tech Bonus, which grants a percentage damage increase when casting from a Talis.
Talises are unique for having a ranged casting style. After a card is thrown, cast Techniques originate from the card as opposed to the player itself, allowing you to cast damaging area Techniques such as Safoie without needing to approach the enemy. However, this can make self-buffing complicated due to needing to stay aware of the status of your current card.
