The Light Reaver was a permanent elemental enhancement for the Wraith Blade created by the Ancient vampires and wielded by Raziel in Legacy of Kain: Defiance.

With none of the Reaver fonts previously used to imbue the temporary enhancements making an appearance in Defiance, Raziel was forced to find more permanent alterations to the Wraith Blade[Defiance].

The Light Reaver was the second of these enhancements that Raziel found. Shortly after he passed through Kain's Mausoleum, Raziel discovered ancient vampire ruins as he investigated the Cemetery and was able to enter a sealed chamber and use a Warp gate that transported him to the Light Forge within the Vampire Citadel. Using the Soul conduit at the heart of the forge Raziel was able to imbue the Wraith blade with elemental Light to create the permanent Light Reaver, which could be selected at will.[Defiance][Defiance/4]

Light Reaver Spell

The Light Reaver manifested as a bright yellow blade which could be used to light up darkened areas. The Light Reaver was particularly effective against shades and would deal them extra damage during Charged attacks and Reaver spells. Against other enemies, the Charged attack stunned enemies, with a longer and more far-reaching stun effect for the Reaver spell. It could also be used to light Dark orbs[Defiance][Defiance strategy guide].
