Interruption Resistance is a hidden attribute related to the Poise System.

The Poise System determines how difficult it is for a character or an enemy to become staggered. The Interruption System determines how much a character or an enemy can be staggered.[1][2]

Staggering Enemies

  1. Stack poise damage until the target enters a vulnerable state.
    • When the state ends, the total taken poise damage will be reset to 0.
  2. Attack the enemy to stagger them.
    • Stagger effect will be determined by the stagger level and the displacement will be determined by the force of the attack and other aspects of physics.

Poise System

Poise Type

Poise Type includes 4 attributes: poise damage threshold, poise recovery, base vulnerability and poise reset time.[3]

Poise Damage Threshold shows how much poise damage a target can take.

  • When the total taken poise damage reaches the threshold, the target will enter a vulnerable state and poise damage will stop stacking.

Poise Recovery shows how fast a target can recover from poise damage.

  • When the total taken poise damage is more than 0, the poise will start to recover.

Base Vulnerability shows the efficiency of the poise damage conversion.

  • The higher the value, the more poise damage will be taken.

Poise Reset Time shows how long the vulnerable state will last.

  • If poise reset time is not null, when an enemy is put into the vulnerable state, the total taken poise damage will be locked and will be reset into 0 after a duration.
  • If poise reset time is null, total taken poise damage will not be locked and will not be reset into 0.
Poise Type Poise Damage Threshold Poise Recovery (per second) Base Vulnerability Poise Reset Time
Melee Character 100 5 1 2s
Range Character 50 3 1 3s
Slime 30 2 1.5 5s
Minion 60 5 1.2 5s
Grunt Humanoid 100 5 1 3s
Grunt Other 120 5 0.8 3s
Demiboss Humanoid 210 20 1 2s
Demiboss Other 280 20 0.7 2s
Boss Humanoid 2000 100 0.5
Boss Other 2000 100 0.5
Tartaglia 500 - 1 99999s

Character and Enemy Poise

For characters, the poise type is determined by weapon type (Sword, Claymore, etc.).

For enemies, the poise type is variable.

Extra Vulnerability

Extra Vulnerability also effects the poise damage conversion.

Unlike Base Vulnerability, Extra Vulnerability will only work under certain conditions.

Interruption Resistance works by adding extra vulnerabilities to character(s).

Level Suppression in Poise

When an enemy is greater than 31 levels below the character's level, an extra vulnerability of 0.5 will affect the poise damage conversion.

Calculation of Poise

When the Total Taken Poise Damage reaches the threshold, the target will be put into the vulnerable state and the total taken poise damage of the target will stop stacking.

Interruption System

When the target is in the vulnerable state, an attack can make the enemy staggered.

Stagger effect will be determined by the stagger level and the displacement will be determined by the force of the attack and other physics features.

Stagger Level

There are 5 stagger levels: Mute, Shake, Light, Heavy and Air.

  • Mute means that the attack can not interrupt the action of the target.
  • Shake means that the attack can not interrupt the action of the target and there will be a few mild stagger animations.
  • Light means that the attack can interrupt the action of the target and there will be some obvious stagger animations.
  • Heavy means that the attack can interrupt the action of the target and the target will be mostly knocked back.
  • Air means that the attack can interrupt the action of the target and the target will be mostly knocked away.


Force is composed of horizontal and vertical components.

  • Most attacks with the Light or Heavy level will have the horizontal force.
  • Most attacks with the Air level will have the vertical force.

Force Level

Force Level includes 3 attributes: stagger level, horizontal force and vertical force.[4]

Force Level Stagger Level Horizontal Force Vertical Force
Default Mute 0 0
0 Mute 0 0
1 Shake 0 0
2 Light 200 0
3 Heavy 200 0
4 Heavy 800 0
5 Air 480 600
6 Air 655 800
7 Air 0 800
8 Air 795 900
9 Air 1200 600


The weight of the target can affect the displacement.

  • When the vertical force is 5.5 times more than the weight (the vertical force > 5.5 * weight), the target may be knocked away if the enemy has the Be Hit Throw State.
    • Some enemies (like Abyss Herald) don't have the Be Hit Throw State and cannot be knocked away.
