Boost Attack is one of the newest features present in Tales of Arise. This feature allows players to summon allies to use their unique attacks on target enemies. Once the Boost Gauge is full, players can press the corresponding key needed to execute the feature. These moves can be followed up with more attacks afterward and even restore Artes Gauge when used.
Filling up the Boost Gauge takes up time but it can be filled up faster with attacks and counters on enemies. Each character in Tales of Arise has a distinctive boost attack that works well on certain enemies and can be used effectively depending on what type of enemy they face.
