Have you tried blocking attacks from
the Gnoll Chieftain using Guard?

You probably couldn't block anything besides his kicks,
right? the Gnoll Chieftain uses a Smash attack like we do.

You can't block a Smash with the regular Guard Skill,
you need to use Heavy Stander.

Advance your Guard skill to Rank E
and I'll give you a copy of Skill Book: Heavy Stander.

(Player talks to Marrec again without Guard at rank E or above:)

(Marrec gives you a onceover.)

Good. You're ready to learn Heavy Stander,
which lets you block smash attacks.

while this skill can block all attacks, it doesn't
completely mitigate damage the way Guard does.

I trust you'll put it to good use.
