Notes[]

  • The stat decrease that can be applied by Def/Res Ruse is considered a  penalty.
    • Any 【Penalty】 on a unit, including  penalties, lasts until that unit takes an action. If the unit takes multiple actions in a turn, they will only have the penalty for their first action.
  • Def/Res Ruse applies the  Guard status effect.
    • Any 【Penalty】 on a unit lasts until that unit takes an action. If the unit takes multiple actions in a turn, they will only have the status effect for their first action.
  • If a foe has a "Special cooldown charge +X" effect and a unit has a "Special cooldown charge -X" effect, the effects will stack.
    • For example, if a unit with Icon Class Red Sword.png Guard Sword+ attacks an enemy with Steady Breath.png Steady Breath, the effects will stack and the cooldown will go down without penalty or bonus.
  • If used alongside a skill that also inflicts "Special cooldown charge -X", only the higher of the two charge reductions will apply.
    • This means that if a unit has "Special cooldown charge -1" and "Special cooldown charge -1" from two different skills, the battle will play out as if only one "Special cooldown charge -1" is active.
  • Skills such as Icon Class Red Sword.png Creator Sword and Icon Class Red Sword.png Spendy Scimitar will neutralize any effects that grant "Special cooldown charge +X" to foe or inflict "Special cooldown charge -X" on its user.
  • Def/Res Ruse does not trigger if the unit receives a  bonus indirectly from skills, such as from Icon Skill Assist.png Rally Up Res+.
  • Cardinal directions refers to a targets being directly north, south, west, or east of the user. Distance does not factor.
