From Dragon Quest Wiki

Shining Shot is a recurring bow skill in the Dragon Quest series. It launches a volley of Light-infused arrows at a group of enemies that ignores the enemy's defence.

Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

Shining Shot can be used by any character that has the 'Archery for the Adept' (quest #84) item in their inventory and is equipped with a Bow. This technique strikes all enemies in battle for 145~155 points of damage, and deals light-element damage.
