  • If the Stun effect is successful, it will state this in the chat log along with the damage. If unsuccessful, it will simply show the damage.
  • Note that this ability has two accuracy checks: a physical check (to see if Violent Flourish actually hits) and a magical check (to see if the stun effect is successful). This is similar to the Blue Mage spell, Head Butt.
  • Rate of stun success is fairly high on weaker monsters.
  • Rate of stun drastically increases from successive applications of Stutter Step, as the stun effect of the flourish is a magical effect.
  • Stacks with Sneak Attack, allowing a bypass of the physical accuracy check if successful. This may also increase chance of stun.
