DescriptionEdit

Greatly boosts poise and damage reduction for a small period of time. While the duration is quite short, it takes effect nearly instantly, allowing reliable usage in the heat of battle.

The skill lasts for six seconds for Great Hammers, and four seconds for the rest.

StrategyEdit

Perseverance allows the user to withstand blows that would otherwise cause them to stagger or interrupt their attacks. It also prevents enemies from stunlocking the player. This is especially useful when facing groups of foes or enemies with sudden and quick attacks. The damage reduction can even be used to survive attacks that would otherwise prove fatal.

The skill can also be used to quickly traverse certain environmental hazards, such as fire.

In player-versus-player combat, the skill can be used to reliably win trades against virtually any weapon, as the bonus poise is guaranteed to withstand at least one attack regardless of damage. Its casting speed also allows it to be used a reactive defense.

For these reasons, Perseverance is seen by many as one of the best weapon skills in the game.
