Kahono's banner has just been released at the time of writing, and players might be contemplating whether she's worth pulling for. As a great healer, if you're in need of one, she could be the perfect addition to your team.

Who is Kahono?

In the anime and manga series "Black Clover," Kahono is a supporting character. She is a water mage affiliated with the Seabed Temple. Kahono is known for her exceptional singing abilities and her proficiency in water magic. She's a cheerful and positive individual who plays an important role during the Underwater Temple Arc. Kahono possesses a unique magical attribute that enables her to heal and support others through her singing, making her a valuable ally to the main characters, Asta and the Black Bulls, during their adventures.

Kahono, along with her brother Kiato, serves as a member of the Seabed Temple's congregation. She's an optimistic and lively character known for her melodious singing voice, which not only entertains but also possesses healing properties. Kahono's singing is infused with her water magic, allowing her to heal wounds and revitalize others.

During the Underwater Temple Arc in "Black Clover," Kahono plays a pivotal role by participating in the temple's event known as the Seabed Temple's Water Temple Festival. Her remarkable singing and magical abilities aid Asta and his companions during their mission within the temple. Additionally, her positive attitude and support contribute significantly to the success of their endeavors.

Kahono's character embodies perseverance and determination, showcasing her dedication to her craft as a mage and healer. Her presence in the series adds depth to the magical world of "Black Clover," portraying the significance of diverse abilities and personalities among the characters.

Kahono's Role

AttributeTechniqueClassHealer

Support unit with recovery abilities

Kahono belongs to the healer class, yet excels in support abilities such as barriers, increased defense, and overall attack enhancement.

Particularly, the combo skill 'Total Attack Power Increase Lv.5' buff is exceptionally powerful. Hence, if you're not utilizing bond formations in your party, consider pairing her with an attacker.

However, healing is limited to regeneration and special moves, making it a struggle to provide on demand and constant healing.

Debuff removal via Skill Page Motif

Equipping the Motif Skill Page enables the addition of 'Debuff Removal' to Skill II.

Furthermore, with her unique passive increasing Kahono's maximum health, it increases the recovery amount, contributing to her survivability.

Recommended Skill Pages

Regarding Kahono's role, enhancing the effectiveness of support skills proves more advantageous than prioritizing healing. Considering this objective, the available options for skill pages are somewhat limited.

Skill PageReason for recommendation

Healing Song
・Motif skill page
・Added debuff removal to skill II
・Increases amount of recovery

A Graceful Beginning
・Probability of debuff removal when using Skill II
・Backwards compatibility when there is no motif

Moonlight Necklace
・Increases defense power/recovery amount
・Although it also raises the bottom of recovery amount, it is easy to increase survival rate by increasing defense and making it hard since she has high HP to begin with.

Adventurer's Notes
・Increases maximum HP and increases survival rate while increasing barrier and recovery amount

Recommended Equipment Sets

When it comes to gear sets, I believe maximizing Max HP and defensive attributes is the way to go for her. Gold defense and Max HP gear sets can significantly enhance her abilities, making her more formidable in battles.

Skills

The first skill targets a single ally with the lowest HP, providing continuous HP recovery equal to four percent of their maximum HP for four turns. This could be good, but keep in mind it's based on their maximum HP, not hers. If applied to an attacker, it might not be as effective since attackers usually have lower HP compared to other units on your team.

The second skill grants all allies a barrier equal to 14% of Max HP for two turns, increased Defense level two for two turns, and increased HP Recovery level two for two turns. I like this a lot. The barrier based on her Max HP is a strong point. It provides a good defense boost and increased HP Recovery, which is quite solid.

Her ultimate grants all allies HP Recovery equal to 20% of her Max HP, along with an increase in all attack level two for two turns. Not bad at all. In fact, I think this would have been what I wanted Mimosa to be. Kahono's healing is based on her Max HP, which I find much more sensible than tying it to attack stats.

Her combined attack grants a partner HP Recovery equal to 20% of Max HP and increases the partner's all attack level five. That's huge! It's a substantial increase in attack, which I really appreciate. Her passive abilities also contribute to her overall effectiveness.

Talents

Regarding her talent nodes, focusing on increasing Max HP, defense, and specific skills related to her role as a support/healer would be beneficial. Enhancing her supportive capabilities is key here.

Summary

In summary, Kahono is a solid unit, particularly as a support role offering defense, healing, and some attack boosts. However, I wouldn't necessarily say she's a 'must-have' unit, especially with other viable alternatives available. Consider her strengths and your team composition before going all-in to obtain her.
