  • Both Stone Will and Steel Will take around 4 seconds to charge during which the user crouches in a stationary defensive position.
    • Attempting to activate the skill again cancels it.
    • Pressing jump whilst preparing the skill cancels that action.
  • Can be used in combination with other defensive boosters such as Angel's Periapt or Spellscreen - the defense raised attribute is in addition to the effect of the skill.
  • This skill can dramatically increase the survivability of low-level Arisen fighters in Hard Mode.
