Mana Breaking is a tactic where you force yourself to be knocked down to avoid damage from attacks. This is a commonly used tactic in PvP.
In order to Mana Break, you must have at least 100 MP. If you press and hold down or , a green bar will charge inside your MP bar, as shown in the image to the right. This cannot be charged beyond your current amount of MP. When you are attacked and when the green bar has been charged beyond the first break line (100MP), you will lose MP equal to the amount that has been charged and will be forced to knockdown. Being knocked down via mana break does not reset your KD counter limit if mana breaking when launched.

Tips and Details
- Any skill that is capable of inflicting Stun or Power Stun cancels Mana Break by default since stuns prevent charging while the target remains afflicted.
- However, when timed correctly, it's possible to Mana Break as you are inflicted by Stun or Power Stun.
- Should not be used if near an edge since the Mana Break Invulnerability ends as the player touches the solid ground, so if you collide with the floor and then fall off an edge, the enemy can catch you as you are falling off the platform.
