Blazing Tempest (ToV)

Blazing Tempest as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Blazing Tempest (火炎裂空 / 火炎烈空 Kaenrekkuu?, "Blazing Splitting Air") is an arte in the Tales series that is an upgrade attack of Tempest Strike, with a Fire-elemental attribute.

Arte Description and History[]

Like in Tempest Strike, the user spins in the air with the enemy, now surrounded in flames. As it is an elemental variation of another arte in the PlayStation 2 version and subsequent releases of Tales of Symphonia, there are special requirements in order to use it. Lloyd Irving first needs to have used Tempest 200 times, and then he must be dealing Fire-elemental damage, through the use of the Garnet accessory, the Sylva Seal: Fire arte, a Fire-elemental weapon, or the Red Quartz item. When these requirements are met, Blazing Tempest will replace Tempest.

After the release of Tales of Innocence, the arte simply became a normal arte with an elemental attribute, which is also reflected in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. The release of Dawn of the New World introduced the arte with a slightly different kanji modification, showing "retsu" (?) instead of the original "retsu" (?). This kanji difference does not change the meaning or pronunciation of the arte's name. In Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2, this alternative name reappeared for the Warrior class, while Ruca Milda's version continued to use the old name.

In the PlayStation 3 and Definitive Edition releases of Tales of Vesperia, a Lloyd costume is available to Karol Capel, enabling him to use this arte while using Roaring Revolution. After using 50 times, Blazing Tempest becomes a separate arte, meaning the costume is no longer necessary to use this arte.
