Skills and Attributes

The following skills will affect this combat art:

  • Tactics Lore - increases the damage bonus, allows for modifications to this combat art.
  • Concentration - will lower this combat art's regeneration time.

The following attributes will affect this combat art:

  • Stamina will lower the regeneration time penalty

Usage Strategies

  • Crucial for melee fighters - keep activated at all times.
  • Suggested Modification:
    • Bronze: Premonition, with the extra attack value a player will hit hit more often, significantly increasing steady damage output (DPS).
    • Silver: Drill, without this, a player's other Combat Arts may be significantly crippled regarding regeneration time if this Combat Art is raised to high level.
    • Gold: Idol should be chosen if playing with others, Retaliation if not. The low chance of the retaliation limits it's usefulness, but if a player is not playing with others Idol may be useless.
  • Note that, like all CA's in the Exalted Warrior aspect, casting speed is determined by weapon speed, and can be boosted by weapon lore skills and +% attack speed. Likewise, the casting speed will be penalized by wielding a weapon with too high a level. Even so, casting speed is probably not very important if Battle Stance is not going to be recast often or cast in battle.
  • Note: In the console version, this Buff will create issues with scrolling in the Bonus Overview. The issues disappear when the Buff is deactivated.
