Using Stance Forma on Equipment[edit | edit source]

To apply a Stance Forma, go to the Arsenal and access the desired rank 30 melee weapon's Mod loadout. Select Action at the bottom of the screen, then choose Polarize, which will show all available types of Forma to choose from. Choose Stance Forma to apply and upon confirmation, the melee weapon's stance slot will become universally polarized and then reset the chosen melee weapon to rank 0. Any stance applied to the stance slot will now have its value doubled as if it was matching the polarity.

    • GarudaMeleeClaws.pngGaruda's Talons are an exception to this, however it receives no benefit due to being a Claw.
  • The DarkSwordDaggerHybrid.pngDark Split-Sword can benefit greatly from a Stance Forma, as it can be used as either Dual Swords or a Heavy Blade, depending on the stance equipped. However, none of the stance polarities of one weapon type are compatible with the other.
  • DualHeat.pngDual Heat Swords is the only melee weapon to not come with a stance polarity.
  • DarkDagger.pngDark Dagger comes with a stance polarity that does not match with any of the current stance mod for single daggers.
