  • The player will be forced to pause momentarily whenever this skill blocks damage. For example, if the user is attacking a monster while this skill is activated and they guard an attack, they will stop attacking the monster for a brief period of time.
  • If the user was standing still or running when this skill blocked an attack, they will still be penalized with a short period of time until they can attack or use skills.


  • Consider not to use this skill for running, use Endure instead. The movement delay when guarding an attack will slow the user down considerably.
  • If the shield is stripped, this skill will cease to function.
  • Magnum Break does not work well with this skill. It will do no damage/knockback if this skill blocks an attack at the same time when Magnum Break activates its effect.
