Steady Stance (Japanese: 金剛の構え Diamond Stance) is a four-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Steady Stance 1, Steady Stance 2, Steady Stance 3, and Steady Stance 4 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Steady Stance skill boost their Defense during combat whenever its user is attacked; the size of the Defense boost is affected by the skill's tier, and the fourth tier gains an effect that decelerates the foe's special skill cooldown for each strike.
