Blanchett's Kaigan
Blanchett's Kaigan, with two levels in Envy and Sloth, and no levels in Lust.

Enlightenment (called Kaigan in Japan) is a mechanic where a unit is able to progress beyond level 85 and gain a variety of benefits. To unlock the ability to obtain Enlightenment, you need to do spend a "Circle of Truth". These come in three colors: blue (for 1-3 star units), yellow (for 4 star units), and red (for 5 star units). For a five star unit, unlocking also requires 10 rainbow golems, 10 rainbow pots, 30 golems of the unit's elemental color, 30 Soul Alchemia, and 500,000 Zeni. This gives you access to the first gate (Envy). Each of the gates is named after one of the seven deadly sins, so while there are currently only five unlockable gates in Japan, the intention is that there will eventually be seven.

Gates[edit | edit source]

  • Envy: Levels increase HP, PATK, MATK, and AGI. The capstone increases additional stats, differing by character. Requires LB 25, unit level 85.
  • Sloth: Levels increase PDEF, MDEF, CRIT, and Hit Rate. The capstone buffs one of the unit's passives. Requires J11 for the job of whichever passive it buffs. Requires Envy level 2.
  • Lust: Levels increase HP, DEX, AGI, and Evasion. The capstone buffs the unit's leader skill. Requires Sloth level 2.
  • Gluttony: Levels increase HP, PDEF, MDEF and Hit Rate. The capstone increases additional stats, and adds bonus damage against specific types of enemies. Requires Lust level 2.
  • Wrath: Levels increase HP, PDEF, MDEF, AGI, and CRIT. The capstone buffs a single skill on one or more jobs. Requires Gluttony level 2.

Each gate you unlock will also increase the unit's max level by +2, for a total of level 95 with five gates.

Leveling up the gates requires a variety of materials (you can review the full costs through the Alchemist Code Database), but in terms of soul shards, the first level in each gate takes 5 soul shards, then each level takes 5 more soul shards than the last. Level 5 is an exception, with a differing cost for each gate (30 for Envy, 50 for Sloth, and 40 for Lust). If you want to fully enlighten the first 3 gates of a unit ("5/5/5"), this will take 270 soul shards, but it's rare that you will do this. A lot of units run 4/2/3 (95 soul shards), 5/2/3 (125 soul shards), or 5/5/3 (210 soul shards).

Collaboration Unit Enlightenment Items[edit | edit source]

For collaboration units, there are alternative items you can use in place of standard items for enlightenment. Note that this does not include units like Sacred Stone Memories and time limited units, only ones from external game collaborations.

Otherworlder Enlightenment Shard[edit | edit source]

These shards can be used in place of standard unit shards when enlightening a collaboration unit. They can only be used once you have consumed all shards of a unit. These shards will work for crossover units such as EO Chloe and EO Shenmei.

Otherworldly Indulgence[edit | edit source]

These are used instead of sinful indulgence for collaboration units. Note that these are only usable by full collaboration units and not crossover units such as EO Chloe and EO Shenmei- they use standard sinful indulgence.

Otherworldly Retribution[edit | edit source]

These are used instead of retribution for sin for collaboration units. Note that these are only usable by full collaboration units and not crossover units such as EO Chloe and EO Shenmei- they use standard retribution for sin indulgence.
