For Honor: Patch 2.41.0 - Stamina Consumption Changes to Some Defensive Stance Abilities

For Honor February 2 Update
February 2 Update Ubisoft

Some heroes in For Honor relying on holding their defensive stances down to be effective have received adjustments to their abilities in Patch 2.41.0.

Players who love using Black Prior in For Honor might be happy with the recent adjustments. For one, blocking attacks while in Bulwark Stance no longer costs stamina. Furthermore, stamina regeneration doesn’t stop anymore while holding Bulwark Stance.

The Kyoshin’s Kaze Stance now costs 10 stamina to activate. However, this is compensated by the fact that blocking attacks while in this stance no longer costs stamina. Stamina regeneration no longer pauses when holding Kaze Stance as well.

According to Ubisoft, the changes mentioned above were made to ensure that their abilities are keeping up with the game’s evolution regarding stamina consumption.

In terms of changes to offensive capabilities, the Kensei can now follow up his chained light attacks with uninterruptible heavy finishers. Besides that, the Gryphon’s Helm Cleaver attack is now enhanced, meaning this particular move can still be executed in a combo even after the prior attack was blocked.
