Notes[edit]

  • Consider using with Steady Stance, Dolyak Signet or Balanced Stance to bypass the knock down penalty.
  • This skill will only knock you down if it hits.
  • Contrary to Grapple, Stonefist Insignia does not prolong the time you are knocked down.
  • If this attack hits multiple targets by using a scythe, the conditions are applied separately. You are also knocked down separately for each hit, which matters if preventing knock downs.
