Rock Solid Effects
- Hitting an enemy after blocking an attack, including with attacks that automatically guard before striking like Tranquil Edge, or by a parry like the Phantom burst counter or Haze, will give you a stack of Rock Solid. Each stack reduces Guard Ki Consumption and Elemental Damage Taken when guarding an elemental attack, and multiplies Melee damage. Rock Solid Stacks 9 times, has a time limit and you also lose 1 stack every time you take a hit from an enemy that isn't blocked. You can refresh the 9th stack the same way you would gain stacks.
- The melee damage bonus starts at an 8.0% multiplier to your melee damage, then increases by 4 twice, then 6 thrice, then 7 thrice, overall capping at a 55% multiplier. Stacks last for 60 seconds on their own by default.
