"Allows you to more easily perform perfect blocks, just as foes strike."
- Makes performing perfect blocks easier, increasing the window of opportunity by a few frames.
- Especially useful in conjunction with the Deflect and Reflect core skills. A Perfect Block activates a shield's automatic elemental counterattacks (as with the Mystic Knight's Firecounter skill). Fighters and Assassins have 3 elemental shields which can reproduce the Mystic Knight's shield abilities : Lambent Shield (Holy), Scorched Pelta (Fire), and Dragon's Roost (Thunder).
- Equipping this skill onto Fighter pawns does NOT appear to improve their ability to execute Perfect Blocks.
