Appearances[edit | edit source]
Stock Break is an ability of both the Swd Art and Seiken skillsets, which inflicts damage equal to x1.5 normal damage to all enemies, dealing higher damage the higher the user's Spirit stat is.

The Swd Art version's damage formula is as follows:
Stock Break is an enemy ability used by Beatrix during the first two battles with her, which reduces the party's HP to 1 and ends the battle. A more powerful version is used by Cursed Beatrix, which inflicts heavy non-elemental damage to the party.
