It does 10 in local damage, 20 for slashing, and 40 for lunging. One of the most notable visual features of Illumina is the fact it sparkles. It also has the ability to jump higher when lunging and jumping at the same time, as well as being able to reveal invisible enemies.


Illumina is a sword found in SFOTH IV, holding the strongest lunge damage behind a level 9 Ghostwalker. Unlike the gear version, it is able to travel a short distance forward with each lunge. If combined with another Illumina, a user is able to fly around the map with consecutive lunges.

It is accepted that Windforce and Firebrand/Venomshank are Illumina's weaknesses, while Illumina itself can easily shut down Darkheart and Ghostwalker users.
