Lesser Defensive Stance is a special that can be used by Fighters with Special/Fighter Level 4. Upon using this special, you cannot move or else the stance will break, meaning its effect is gone until you use it again. Assuming this stance takes a fair amount of stamina. While in the stance, a small portion of incoming damage will taken away from your stamina instead. When your stamina runs out, the stance will break, and you will return to normal. Lesser Defensive Stance requires a shield to be used.
