Holy Lance (ホーリーランス Hooriiransu?) is a powerful Light-elemental spell which appears frequently throughout the Tales series.

Holylance

Holy Lance as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Arte Description and History

Holy Lance is a spell that causes many sharp spears of light to form in a circular pattern in the air, while a magical glyph is formed around the enemy. The spears point down at an angle toward the target, rapidly descending into the earth in sequence to pierce the enemy. This is followed by a small blast of light as the spears detonate.

The first appearance of this spell was in the original Tales of Destiny, where it is available exclusively to Swordian Clemente. All of the Swordian Masters are capable of using the spell while Clemente is equipped. The PlayStation 2 remake of the game applies this spell exclusively to Philia Felice, who now has sole posession of Clemente. In this remake, the spell is revised to allow an initial spike of light to shoot from under the enemy, launching it into the air and keeping it trapped in place while it is assaulted by the other spears.

In Tales of Eternia, Holy Lance is available to either Keele Zeibel or Meredy, based on who has Rem in his or her Craymel Cage. The other character must have Maxwell in his or her own Craymel Cage, and the two Craymels must be fringed together.

In Tales of Symphonia, it is a move that can be learned by Raine Sage, providing Photon has been mastered and Raine is aligned with the "Strike" type of arte progression. Its "Technical" counterpart is Ray. In addition, Holy Lance also had a Dark-elemental equivalent, named Bloody Lance, which was only usable by enemies. Holy Lance is also one possible key to unlocking Raine's mystic arte Sacred Shine in the PlayStation 2 version. The spell did not return in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.

Tales of the Abyss features Holy Lance as a spell that is learned by Tear Grants. The spell provides a fully charged Light-elemental FOF Circle, which can be used to activate Fire or Wind-based FOF Changes. In addition, Holy Lance can change into Cluster Raid when activated within a Earth- or Dark-elemental FOF circle.

Holy Lance returns in Tales of Innocence. It is learned by Ange Serena after she has reached an appropriate level of mastery for Ray, building on her Light-elemental focus. It is also learned by Hermana Larmo without any requirements, continuing Hermana's ability to use high level offensive magic of all elements.

Tales of Vesperia also featured the spell, this time usable by Estelle. Holy Lance is the key to unlocking Estelle's altered arte Holy Rain, which is obtained by using Holy Lance with the "Deluge" skill equipped until it is mastered. Holy Lance can also be used by Flynn Scifo, available only during his duel with Yuri Lowell as an enemy attack in the Xbox 360 version. The PlayStation 3 port enables Holy Lance to be learned normally while Flynn is with the party.
