Duration: 10 + 10*SkillLV sec
Effect: This skill operates like the Knight's Auto Counter, but instead catches an attacker, freezing both Monk and target for a few moments.
Certain skills are available for you to attack with depending on Blade Stop skill level. Both Monk and attacker are stopped until the Monk uses a skill, the Monk dies, the attacker dies, or Blade Stop's duration expires.
Unlike Freeze/Stone Curse status the attacker still has all Flee and DEF. Further, if the target is a Monk who also has the Blade Stop skill then both are free to use their skills (determined by their own Blade Stop skill level).
This skill can not be used to counter enemy skills. Does not work against Boss monsters. Uses up 1 Spirit Sphere.
Skill range is 1 cell for barehand and 2 cells for armed. Both characters are still able to use items and change equipment.
