Tips and Details

  • On a single enemy, you normally need a minimum of 4 energy to be able to continue into Rakshasa Stance 2: Energy Burst, as the skill connecting will provide the 3rd energy required. However, if an enemy is far enough away the moment the skill connects, Energy Burst can not be used despite meeting the requirements.
    • The skill will still try to cancel itself however and since it did successfully hit a target, grant you 2 energy for Energy Conversion, despite not actually being cancelled.
    • Conversely, if you are close enough to an enemy, the skill will cancel itself before Energy Burst actually gets cast, giving you 1 energy for hitting a target and 2 energy for Energy Conversion, which can then be consumed by Energy Burst.
  • When not cancelled, the Catch will knock enemies down.


  • In the original design, Soul Reaping used to be the third part of Rakshasa Stance.
