Notes[]

  • The effect of Guard Bearing only activates during the first combat that the user enters during the enemy phase of that turn.
    • If the user or a foe has any skills that neutralize or stack with Guard Bearing's effect, those effects will only stack or be neutralized during the first combat that the user enters during the enemy phase of that turn.
  • The damage-reduction is calculated after offensive Specials and skills that deal extra damage, such as Icon Class Red Sword.png Wo Dao+.
    • Percentage-based damage-reduction effects stack multiplicatively, unlike interactions related to the weapon-triangle, such as gem weapons and  Triangle Adept.
      • For example, if both Spurn 3.png Spurn 3 and Skilliconspecial.png Vital Astra activate, the maximum total damage-reduction is 58% instead of 70%, since the two skills reduce the damage to (1 − 40%) × (1 − 30%) = 42% of the original damage.
    • For more information, see Damage calculation.
  • Skilliconspecial.png Deadeye, Skilliconspecial.png Lethality, Skilliconspecial.png Sublime Heaven, and Skilliconspecial.png Twin Blades will neutralize Guard Bearing's damage-reduction effect.
  • When used with offensive Specials, Skilliconweapon.png Bow of Frelia, Icon Class Red Sword.png Lioness Blade, Icon Class Colorless Tome.png Thunderer Tome, and Icon Class Red Sword.png Lands Sword will neutralize Guard Bearing's damage-reduction effect.
  • Icon Class Colorless Tome.png Adroit War Tome and Icon Class Red Tome.png Þjálfi can reduce the damage-reduction of Guard Bearing by 50%.
