Each merit upgrade increases number finishing moves granted by 1 to a maximum of 5.
Stacks if used in conjunction with Steps or if No Foot Rise is used again after 3 minutes. Finishing moves that exceed the maximum number allowed, which is five, go unused.
Example: Use No Foot Rise at Level 4 for 4 finishing moves and use a Step afterwards for another 2 finishing moves gives a total of 6. Since the maximum finishing moves allowed is 5, the extra finishing move is unused. Therefore, this ability does stack itself up to the maximum number of finishing moves.
If you already have five Finishing Moves, you will be unable to use this ability.
