Legacy of Kain Wiki

The Water 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], with the Water Reaver the fifth of these enhancements that Raziel found[Defiance/8].

During his journey through Vorador's Mansion, Raziel found a warp hidden in the ornate fountain in an inner courtyard which transported him to the sealed Water Forge in the Vampire Citadel. Defeating the spirits of the original Ancient vampire States and Death Guardians he was able to power the Soul conduit at the heart of the forge and use it to absorb their souls into the Wraith Blade, imbuing the Wraith blade with elemental Water to create the permanent Water Reaver, which could be selected at will.[Defiance][Defiance/8]

The Water Reaver manifested as a light blue colored wraith blade. It could be used to douse and put out Fire sconces, but could also be used to interact with Waterfalls, freezing them an enabling Raziel to climb them as regular climbable walls. In combat the Water Reaver could be used to briefly freeze struck enemies Charged attacks, whilst its Reaver spells unleashed an ice blast which froze and damaged nearby enemies.[Defiance][Defiance strategy guide].
