What Is Fully Staggered (100% Staggered)

Immobilize Formidable Foe Temporarily

When battling formidable foes, Will Gauge is indicated by a yellow gauge displayed below the enemy's HP gauge. When the enemies' Will Gauges are fully exhausted, they will become 100% staggered. In this state, the enemy is immobile for a short while which provides an opportunity for you to deal significant damage.
