Variable Trigger as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Variable Trigger (ヴァリアブルトリガー Variaburutorigaa?) is a base arte used by Patty Fleur from the PlayStation 3 and Definitive Edition ports of Tales of Vesperia and Alvin from Tales of Xillia .

Arte Description and History[]

Upon activation, the user twirls their gun and shoots the target. Patty will perform the arte differently depending on her current form. If Patty has the Chain skill equipped, she will use the altered arte Trigger Tune instead.

  • Normal Form: Patty shoots the target once.
  • Advance Form: Patty fires a close-ranged blast that hits three times.
  • Brainiac Form: Holding the Artes button will make Patty "charge" the shot by twirling her gun. The longer the shot is charged, the more damage and range it has. Charged shots will knock down the target.
  • Critical Form: Patty fires three close-ranged blasts and throws a bomb shortly afterward.

In Tales of Xillia and its sequel, Alvin can change this arte into Variable Blast if he uses it with his sword charged.
