The Water Reaver was a temporary elemental enhancement for the Wraith Blade that was planned for inclusion in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, but was ultimately cut due to time constraints.


The Water Reaver was a temporary enhancement for the Wraith Blade associated with elemental Water. It was intended to be discovered by Raziel in the Water Forge, but both the forge and Reaver enhancement were ultimately cut due to time constraints[1][2].

The blade would have been a temporary enhancement, lost when entering the Spectral Realm and re-imbued by sources of water (or possibly waterfalls).The blade was intended to be have several special abilities; being able to stun enemies in a single strike, and burn enemies to death with Water in both its finishing strike and Force bolts[1].

Despite being removed, the blade can be activated in game through the use of the debug menu, revealing it as a pale-blue Wraith blade enhancement (like its successors) - however none of its abilites were present in-game[1][SR1][3].

A similar temporary Water Reaver was planned for inclusion in Soul Reaver 2, but also ended up being cut due to time constraints[4]. The Water Reaver would eventually debut in a more permanent form in Legacy of Kain: Defiance[DEF-C8][DEF].
