A Stonefist Insignia is a Warrior-specific upgrade component that increases the duration of knockdown on foes. This bonus is global.

  • As this insignia does not depend on which piece of armor it is placed upon, the most advisable area would be the head, feet or arms piece. This is for two reasons:
    • Other insignias, one example being the Survivor Insignia, receive least benefit on the head, feet and arms. Stonefist, on the other hand, is equally effective on all pieces of armor, thus it's better placed on the head, feet or arms so as to allow other insignias to receive greater bonuses.
    • Insignias that give special armor bonuses, such as the Stalwart Insignia, require that the blow hit the armor piece they're attached to in order to take effect. The head, feet and arms are hit least regularly, and thus the Stonefist Insignia is best placed on one of these three armor pieces so as to allow the other defensive insignias to work their full potential.
  • Any Warrior running a build with knockdown skills should consider equipping a Stonefist Insignia, as the extra second of knockdown can be incredibly useful.
Anomaly Anomaly.This insignia increases the length of the self-inflicted knockdown caused by Grapple. (It will not increase knockdowns caused by either Drunken Blow or Desperation Blow.) Although this behavior is intended, the description states that only foe-knockdowns are affected.
