Burn Strike as it appears in Tales of Destiny 2.

Burning Strike (バーンストライク Baansutoraiku?, "Burn Strike") is a recurring Fire-elemental magic arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

The user summons several flaming meteorites to rain down on the battlefield, successively striking the target with each meteorite and landing a few steps ahead of the previous one in a straight line. In Tales of Destiny 2, some characters can extend this spell into Volcanic Ray. In Tales of Vesperia, Rita Mordio's version is an altered variant of her Negative Gate arte. It can initially be performed while equipped with her Mao cameo costume, serving as a reference to the Tales of Rebirth character. She can use the arte without the costume after it is mastered and can be altered to include more projectiles depending on the amount of times it is used.
