You have to have Shadowrush and Ashina Cross to unlock it. But don't do it. It's really bad and a total trap, it does does next to nothing in terms of damage or posture damage, it doesn't stagger hardly at all, and it uses 1 emblem for every attack in the combo up to like 5 or 7 emblems total. It's not worth the investment at ALL. I was really hoping for something good, considering it takes 44 skill points in total to unlock. Man was I a fool. FromSoft please buff. :c
same problem. i have shadow rush and asina cross. it still shows hidden secret technique on tree. i don t care if it is bad or not .... i would like the option to unlock it.
You need to buy floating passage from the Hirata pot noble
You either dont have the skill points. Or you dont have prerequisite skills to unlock lol

Correction I did some testing and it's 5 emblems total, assuming you can do the whole combo before getting hit.
Apparently Fromsoft heard you my friend. The last patch buffed this attack big time. It now obliterates everything on your way, dealing damage through their guard and even interrupting a few moves (you still have to be careful while using it but it's significantly better than before). It also only cost 3SE do perform the whole thing which makes it more than viable and totally worth the 9SP imo. Insane against the Tengu in Ashina castle, for exemple. You can be surrounded, no problem, they have seemingly no attack that goes through the bubble you create while using this attack. You can also destroy some bosses with it (I saw a dude using it on Emma and it was extremely convincing, to say the least).
Spirit emblems usage for combat art is dumb
It's terrible on literally all of them that do it, and make them inferior to the easier to acquire free-use alternatives. It's terrible design. I hope they patch out the costs, but I don't see that being likely.
You use them for literally 2 things in this game, if you wanna be a Super Saiyan and spam a bunch of flashy moves go play DBZ or DMC 5. Yes making an ability do more damage, extending the range or adding traits to an ability makes it inferior huh maybe you just need to git gud and stop spamming your abilities and prosthetic maybe throw out a regular attack chain or deflect every now and then.

Shadowrush/fall is really good for taking on enemies (or groups of enemies) that are giving you a lot of trouble. 2 emblems isn't the end of the world and you can use it from a safe distance, repeatedly doing decent vit/posture damage.

You also need to have Floating Passage Text from pot noble, took a good *****ing time for me to figure it out.
Thank you so much, you're my hero
The fact this art costs talismans makes it an absolute joke. What could've been an ultimate technique in the style of Whirlwind Slash/Floating Passage is instead a complete and utter joke because it decimates your talisman pool for absolutely no reason.
Floating Passage + AoE = Spiral Cloud Passage. If you have no spirit emblems: Floating Passage = Spiral Cloud Passage. Why is this ability so expensive?
another skill that is devastating in the hand of Sword Saint, but a joke in our hands
Does the Sword Saint uses this skill?
Nope It is lord Genichiro's combo
How to get this skill, but not open?
You have to buy the skill from the guy in Hirata Estate inside the barrel, the vendor that takes carp scales.
Wrong skill mentioned in the earlier reply, the poster means floating passage.
Although I don't think the other combat arts that use Spirit Emblems are particularly bad (they just have balance issues with the SE costs), this one is just bad in general. The damage it terrible and I have yet to find an enemy that'll simply not block this mid-combo and then punish you.
