Additional Details[edit | edit source]

  • Fiona-only skill.
  • A Shield is required to use Heavy Stander.
  • Heavy Stander can block almost any attack, whether it is a normal attack, smash attack, or a special attack that a normal Guard cannot block.
    • However, there are a minute number of attacks that cannot be blocked with Heavy Stander (nor Perfect Guard). These include grab attacks and Keaghan's instant-kill move, among some others.
  • Successfully blocking a smash attack or special attack with a small shield will cause Fiona to be knocked back, causing her to fall to her knees. However, using a large shield (i.e Kite Shield) will keep her stationary.
  • Using Heavy Stander with a small shield will consume more stamina than using Heavy Stander with a large shield.
  • If equipped with a large shield, a Perfect Heavy Stander can be performed by using Heavy Stander right before the attack lands. This reduces stamina consumed by Heavy Stander. Perfect Heavy Stander persists for additional attacks blocked until Heavy Stander is cancelled.
  • Heavy Stander blocks damage from both normal and smash attribute attacks, but it does not block all damage from smash attribute attacks until the skill is rank A or higher.
  • It is not possible to perform a Counterattack with Heavy Stander, but you can perform Heavy Stander Counter instead if equipped with a small shield.
  • Shield Durability drops faster when using heavy stander compared to Guard.
    • It is possible to perfectly guard a smash attack if one uses Heavy Stander right before the enemy's attack lands. This reduces the shield durability reduction.
  • This skill is used to perform the Heavy Cancel Technique, which allows Fiona to speed up her movements by using Heavy Stander briefly to interrupt lengthy attack animations.
  • Attack speed effects your speed of performing heavy stander. Which means higher speed equals faster performance.
  • Heavy Stander rank 9 is a prerequisite for Heavy Stander Counter rank F.
  • Generates 20 SP on blocking a Smash attack
    • Generates 0 SP on blocking a Normal attack
