Power System

From Elwiki

Basic Information

Power System is a system exclusive to Ain which allows him to switch between "Cycle Magic" and "Creation Magic". When in default state, attacking enemies will increase the green bar. After the green bar is maxed out, it will turn blue and you will shift into Creation Mode. During this time, you will be able to switch between Cycle and Creation magic with the V key (default key).

Ain only has 1 bead for awakening. He however can awaken during his awakening and ascend to the next phase.

Power (Disparate Force)

The bar below the MP bar is known as the Power Gauge. The bar will fill up when Ain is attacking or being attacked. When the gauge is full (8000 points), his special system, Power, will activate.

Power has two modes: Power: Cycle Magic and Power: Creation Magic. When gaining Power, the default mode is known as El's Power: Circulating Magic. By default, Creation Magic will be activated when the Power Gauge becomes full, but after learning Noble Pledge: Eid, Awakened Will: Apostasia, or Wave, Cycle Magic will be activated instead. While Cycle Magic or Creation Magic is active, they can be switched by pressing the special action key ([V] by default). There is a 1-second cooldown after switching.

After the gauge is consumed, Power will no longer be active and you will switch back to Power: Circulating Magic.
The Power Gauge gain depends on your Max MP stat and certain properties unique to the attack.

The default awakening system is changed to Spiritualism. Spiritualism features:

  • Only have 1 awakening bead.
  • Able to re-awaken during awakening duration to ascend to next stage of spiritualism (3 stages). Stats gain during awakening depend on Spiritualism stage.

When your next Awakening Bead would activate Phase 3, either by being in the 2nd or 3rd phase of Awakening or when under an effect that grants Phase 3 upon Awakening, the Awakening Bead will blink. The only exception to this is when you would skip to Phase 3 through the Wavering Faith Passive Skill, likely due to the Skill's reliance on the Seed of Chaos.

Ain's 3 phases of awakening.


Even when not wearing the promo avatar, upon awakening you will gain the appearance of the awakened mode. However if you are wearing back accessories (Ex. Wings, capes), they will be displayed during the first and second stage of awakening.

  • This is reversed as Bluhen, giving an incomplete version of his Spiritualism wings in his first stage and an incomplete version of his crown in the second stage, replacing the back and head accessories respectively, while the third stage will give the promotional costume's appearance and complete his wings and crown.
  • You can disable this look completely by enabling "Remove Awakening Appearance" in the Game Options.

Tips and Details

  • While all other melee attacks (including Abschluss) trigger Creation Mode's afterimage attacks, Ain's getup Z/X attack will trigger the projectiles instead.
  • If the Ring of Fury is equipped, Ain will automatically enter Awakening Stage 3 upon the first awakening. This also applies to Fever.



  • Richter is the only class path that does not change the default Power mode from Creation Magic to Cycle Magic.
    • Additionally, Herrscher is the only class path to delay this change instead of having it occur immediately upon achieving 1st Job.
