In the Tales series this verb is used as a spell chant:

天光満つる所に我は在り。

But when I type in みつる + Space I get only 満. When I search 満つる in the dictionary it doesn't recognize it as a conjugation: https://jisho.org/search/満つる . Is this something archaic?

It's the attributive form of archaic 満{み}つ, whose conjugation goes みち・ず、みち・て、みつ、みつる・とき、みつれ・ば、みち・よ. (The online dictionary in your link mistakes it as godan and gives wrong "inflection". Be careful.)

  • Thank you. If I wanted to achieve the same meaning in today's time, would I be using 満ちる unconjugated? – holyeyeolo Jun 17 '18 at 10:41
  • I'm not sure what do you mean by "unconjugated" but anyway it's みちる and its attributive form is the same as the terminal one. – user4092 Jun 18 '18 at 3:03
  • I meant uninflected, just the terminal form of the verb. But I understand now – holyeyeolo Jun 18 '18 at 8:08
