When activated, the wielder anchors the weapon in the ground and gains temporary Hyper Armor while taking reduced damage, like normal Perseverance. Following it up with a strong attack makes the player slam the hammer into the floor two more times, creating an explosion each time while leaving a lava pool around the wielder.

This skill grants the wielder a larger degree of flexibility than most great hammers. Simply activating the skill can give the wielder a standard Perseverance, useful for trading against opponents with large weapons. The strong attack may be handy for surprising players that are still willing to trade with the weapon, or for area denial when participating in co-op.
