Arc Fire as it appears in Tales of Crestoria.

Arc Fire (タイドバレット / タイド・バレット Taidobaretto / Taido Baretto?, "Tide Bullet") is a recurring gun strike arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When used by Illia Animi, she fires a bullet into the ground that forms of pool of water. Alvin shoots several flaming bullets in an arc at the ground. When used by Ludger Will Kresnik and Victor, they shoot an "X" on the ground in front of them with their dual pistols, and each shot conjures a small pillar of water. In Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2, when used by Alvin, this arte is Fire-elemental and forces downed enemies to stand after 200 uses, and in Tales of Xillia 2 only, it gains an additional hit and increased area of effect after 400 uses. Also in Tales of Xillia 2, Ludger's version deals critical damage on downed enemies, and the number of hits increases after 100 and 200 uses. In both Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2, if Alvin has at last one charge stacked, this arte will alter into Arc Blaze. In Tales of the Rays, Alvin's version is uniquely Fire-elemental. In Tales of Crestoria, Vicious makes a fireball erupt from the enemy's feet before axe kicking them back down, followed by several gunshots. His version includes the interpunct between "Tide" and Bullet".
