Stagger is the fourth Combat Style in Absolver, and the only one that cannot be learned from character creation.
Stagger Style Information
' The warriors who practice in the Stagger Style may appear to be out of control, but the sways and stumbles can give way to devastating strikes in the blink of an eye.'
Stagger style has no purely defensive ability, unlike the other three, but it allows the player character to use drunken boxing-esque moves that have innate defensive properties. Forsaking Strength and Vitality in favor of other attributes, moves associated with it double as dodges and are highly unpredictable, but drain more stamina.
How To Learn Stagger Style
