In the shadow of Kugane's renowned Mujikoza theater, you recount your clash with Sri Lakshmi to the wandering minstrel. Moved to melancholy by the tragic tale, he forgoes adapting it for the stage, choosing instead to honor the memory of the departed with a verse. So vivid are the words and sorrowful the melody, you cannot help but relive the fateful encounter in your mind's eye...

— In-game description

Emanation (Extreme) is a level 70 trial introduced in patch 4.0 with Stormblood.

Ability Type Description
Vril Usable Action Vril is used slightly differently from Emanation. Players will start with 3 charges of Vril that must be spread out over the course of the fight. Using Vril has a similar effect to Emanation, preventing negating certain mechanics including Lakshmi's ultimate. Refill times can be found in the strategy and rotation sections. Because refill times are so few and far between, players should use Vril as few times as possible.
Tail Slap Add Ability Tanks should face adds away from the party while maintaining top aggro to prevent a party-wide cleave.
Inner Demons Add Ability Easy to dodge telegraphed gaze attack. If missed, will cause stun to players caught by the gaze.
Stotram.png  Stotram Heal & Raid-wide Damage Lakshmi will periodically heal adds by casting Stotram.png  Stotram. This ability also causes high raid-wide damage.
Hand of Grace Telegraphed AoE Works exactly the same as normal mode except three players will be targeted. Marked players are assigned a + line AoE. Spread out from the party and align yourselves so that there is no overlap to prevent excess damage.
The Pull of Light Tank Buster Heavy tank buster. Mitigate with cooldowns and heals.
The Path of Light Frontal Cleave Targets the second highest enmity target (marked as a "2" on the party list) with a blue marker. After a few seconds, Lakshmi unleashes a massive frontal cone attack in that player's direction. Bait the attack away from the group, but ensure that it also doesn't hit the main tank as well.
Alluring Arm Telegraphed AoE Lakshmi marks one player with a + line AoE and two other players will be marked with the lily pads. Those marked with the lily pads should spread to avoid overlapping splash damage, and the player marked with the + line AoE should align themselves appropriately to give the rest of the party a large safe zone. An easy way to deal with this is have the + line AoE align themselves directly in the middle of the arena behind Lakshmi and the two players marked with the lily pads move to one of the two large open corners. The unmarked players can then align themselves accordingly.
The Pall of Light Stack Damage Stack on the marked player to share damage.
Chanchala / Chimichanga / Chinchilla Buff Immediately use Vril as soon as Lakshmi starts her casting animation. Chanchala increases the damage of Lakshmi's attacks and adds new abilities to them. In addition, Chanchala also enables Lakshmi to use her Divine attacks.
Divine Denial (Chanchala) Raid-wide Knockback Arena-wide knockback AoE that will kill anyone who hasn't used Vril. This skill still causes knockback even with Vril, so be sure to stand close to the center to avoid being knocked off the platform.
Hand of Beauty (Chanchala) Telegraphed AoE Both healers will be marked with puddles. Healers should split to opposite sides of the arena. Healers should use Vril before the puddle drops to avoid status debuffs. The puddles dropped in this form will spawn, grow in size twice, then disappear.
The Pull of Light (Chanchala) Tank Buster The same skill as above, except in this form Lakshmi does a significantly larger amount of damage. Tanks can pop a Vril to survive the tank buster.
The Path of Light (Chanchala) Frontal Cleave The player with the second most aggro will be targeted with a heavy hitting frontal cone AoE. In Chanchala form, it will do substantially more damage and a Vril can be popped in order to survive this mechanic.
Divine Desire (Chanchala) Raid-wide Pull & Bleed Lakshmi moves to the middle of the arena and casts an arena-wide pull on all players. Players should pop Vril and stay away from the center to avoid the bleed AoE cast around Lakshmi.
Water III Add Ability Marks players with an orange marker. Marked players need to move away from the group to avoid splash damage.
Alluring Embrace Ultimate Players must pop Vril to survive Lakshmi's ultimate. The ultimate will trigger once the "alluring embrace" gauge reaches 0 regardless if adds in the arena are still alive.
Divine Doubt Raid-wide Confuse Players will be debuffed with Confusion for 16 seconds causing players to attack each other. Using Vril before this ability will shorten the amount of time Confusion lasts. To avoid ganks, players should split off into groups of two to prevent 2-on-1 situations.
Vril Restoration Telegraphed AoE Vril bubbles will be spawned around the arena in two separate patterns. These will occur in two sets. The first set includes the following two patterns. The first pattern will be in a "Z" shape, while the second will be in a straight line.

The second set includes the next two patterns. The first pattern will be in a circle around the outer edge of the arena. The second pattern will be a "Z" shape again. During these two sets, AoEs will also spawn around the arena. Players should avoid AoEs where possible and replenish their Vril.

The Pall of Light (Chanchala) Stack Damage Similar to the original form, except it hits much harder and applies a heavy bleed debuff to anyone not under the effect of Vril.
Stotram.png  Stotram (Chanchala) Raid-wide Damage Very heavy hitting skill. Stotram.png  Stotram in Chanchala form will instantly kill anyone with the bleed debuff or anyone not topped off. Players should pop a Vril to survive.
