Sentinel's Scherzo


Scroll of Sentinel's ScherzoRare
BRD Lv.82
Teaches the Sentinel's Scherzo.
Mitigates the impact of severely
damaging attacks for party members
within area of effect.
Scherzo acts as a barrier that activates against single physical or magical attacks that would take 75% or more of a target's HP, after accounting for Damage Taken- effects on gear. It reduces that damage by an amount influenced by the combined Singing and Instrument Skill of the Bard.
  • Damage Reduction % = floor(((Singing Skill + Instrument Skill) - 350) / 10)
  • Damage Reduction % from Scherzo caps at 45% before equipment bonuses.
  • Equipment that gives "Scherzo +" or "All Songs +" increases the damage reduction by 1% per +1 level.
  • When combined with other sources of "mitigates severe damage" effects (such as Earthen Armor), Scherzo's effect is counted against a total combined damage mitigation cap of 95%.[1][2]
  • Soul Voice and Marcato only increase the duration of this song, and not its effects on reducing severe damage taken.[1]
