Nova Ascension is the most powerful sword skill in the one-handed sword category besides Phantom Rave.


This skill consists of a total of ten hits. The first hit is a slash starting from the top right to bottom left. The user pauses for a millisecond before slashing horizontally from left to right before slashing again from bottom right to top left. The fourth hit is a repeat of the first one. The fifth one is a repeat of the third hit. The sixth is an immediate return hit from the fifth one and goes from bottom left to top right. The user then spins clockwise, sending a wave of energy that makes up the seventh hit. Going against their own momentum, the user spins counterclockwise and deals the eighth hit in a similar manner to the seventh. The ninth hit is a slash from top right to bottom left performed while doing a front flip. This hit is performed so quickly someone watching from afar won't even be able to make out the ninth hit. The final hit is a devastating frontal thrust. At this point, viewers from afar will only count nine hits but it really is ten.

The user initiates the skill by standing at a 90-degree angle relative to the target with their sword 10 degrees relative to their body position and 190 degrees relative to the target.
