Heavy Stander.png
  • A Passive Defense that reduces damage from incoming Melee, Fighter, and Puppetry attacks as well as Dischord and Flash Launcher, while giving the monster the ability to automatically defend against those skills as well.
    • Heavy Stander's ability to reduce damage from melee-type skills is always active.
    • Auto Defense from Heavy Stander randomly activates upon being hit by any kind of melee attack.
      • Auto Defense also reduces damage by half when it triggers, after calculating the monster's defensive stats and Heavy Stander's passive damage reduction.
      • This includes attacking a monster when they have a skill loaded.
      • A message will flash across the attacker's screen if their attack activates a monster's Auto Defense.
  • There are three levels of Heavy Stander, each with their own unique effects.
  • Normal attacks from Close Combat Weapons under the effects of Instill Thunder will ignore up to 3 ranks of this skill, reducing auto-defense rate and passive damage reduction.
