During this state, his dagger becomes the crimson colored "Darkslayer" longsword and Kaihen puts on a hood. Additionally, all his attacks will display a spectral image of himself, similar to Transcended Greysoul's Clones.
In this state a hood is visible in his portrait.
At the end of the duration of this skill, Kaihen will inflict the finishing blow, even if stunned or silenced.

Skills above always display the latest versions. Links below lead to version links on our translation articles.
1: Before Global Release "Light Energy" was translated as "Inner Light" which is a loose translation to properly represent the contradicting theme that the developers tried to go for.
2: The original descprition uses a lot more phrases to describe the 3rd Active skill's state. This version is much easier to understand though. The "Darkslayer" is Kaihen's swords filled with Light, and his dark armor his hooded appearance while in that state; complementing his lore.
The MAX enhancement state, which is reached upon 11 enhancements, unlocks the MAX Passive skill. Further enhancing to ULT (MAX+8) unlocks the ULT Passive skill. Enhancing even further (ULT+5 or ARCH) unlocks the ARCH passive skill.
Enhancement costs are presented in the table below.
