    1. Title: Defensive Stance
    2. Details: Defensive Stance can +XX% Defensive Skill Modifier for 1 min. When I use it, then press C, DA is the same, just DR is ok. I don't know is it work. If it is not work, it's bug. If it work but not show in the status, it 's a problem too.

    Dewd !
    There is no Defensive Stance (Specialization ) ....
    Are you saying you have the Tactics Specialization ?

    Moving on.....
    When you say "DA is the same, just DR is ok" - what are you referring to with DA and DR ?
    What is DA and what is DR ?

    Damage Avoidance & Damage Resistance. Ill test this too today but I only have light armor skills so cant test all affected skills.

    EDIT: and now that I read this again, I understand that the armors DA value does not change but DR will, yes according to the skill, both should be affected (from the skill wording)

    Sorry, my english is bad XD

    When I use Fortify Defenses, it will add 13.4%DA(status 40%), then I use Defensive Stance, DA will up to 16.3%, but my status is the same (DA40%), so I say don't know is it work or not.

    Status: (practical testing)
    1. armor 26%+13.4%=40%
    2. armor 26%+16.3%(+23%Defensive skill modifier)=40%????

    So I say it 's same, but they should not be the same.

    Keep in mind, some of the effects of this skill magnify effects of other defensive skills. Therefore, you will get different results depending on which order you use them.

    You should try to put up defensive stance first before deploying all other defensive skills, if possible, to maximize the effects.
