Aerial Laser (TotA)

Aerial Laser as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Punishing Beam (エリアルレイザー / エアリアルレイザー Eriarureizaa / Eariarureizaa?, "Aerial Laser") also localized as Aerial Laser, is a base arte in the Tales series reserved for characters with ranged weapons.

Arte Description and History

While performing the move, the user spins around, surrounded by flashing energy, before knocking the enemy into the air and firing at it, similar to Light Spear Cannon. In Tales of the Abyss, performing the move within a complete Wind or Light FOF Circle will alter it into Astral Laser. In Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2, this arte is Wind-elemental and is the result of altering Alvin's Punishing Shot with his "Charge" special ability. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is Water-elemental.
