This Site and others I've found indicate that this is a SWORD SKILL and doesn't work with other weapons. My own ingame usage has confirmed this. State your evidence to the contrary.--Jackel 07:55, 11 Aug 2005 (EST)

I use this skill very often to farm the UW. I do not hold a sword. It works. Furthermore, a guildmate uses it when farming griffons while holding an axe. It works. Lastly, that site's skill listing is ancient. Skills have old descriptions and skills that were removed (or, at least one removed skill, unnatural signet) is still there. --Fyren 08:03, 11 Aug 2005 (EST)
youre messing this up with Deadly Riposte and Riposte Ollj

Does Bonett's end the instance you click on a skill? Or does it end the instance when your skill finishes casting?

When it finishes casting.. so it's useful if you engage it before casting a skill with a long cast time. --Midk 15:35, 30 October 2005 (EST)

While it's true that they probably got it from the movie...[edit source]

...Rocco Bonetti was a historical sword master (italian, in the 1500s), and the Defense is an actual move.

 Mentioned here:  for instance.

Real life fencing masters are EASILY > the Princess Bride, and I for one think that ANet based the skills off the RL people instead of some corny ass movie.--Mafaraxas 16:31, 13 January 2007 (CST)
Hahaha. Come on, The Princess Bride is up there with Monty Python and the Holy Grail for comedy, and you know how much Anet likes Monty Python. Shido 19:21, 18 February 2007 (CST)

I have tried to block every type of damage with this stance, and it blocked them all! cold, lightning, chaos, light, fire,blunt, slashing and so on... staves, wands, hammers, bows... it blocks everything! i suggest we put it on the notes.Roadkill15 04:24, 22 February 2007 (CST)

Blind[edit source]

Do you gain the energy if the opponent misses due to blind?Stryk Lightning 08:17, 17 April 2007 (CDT)

No. --Fyren 10:15, 17 April 2007 (CDT)

Synergy[edit source]

I've found that using heal sig immediately after entering bonetti's is a good form of energy management, while protecting you in your vulnerable state. SHould i put it in or be it too obvious?Dark0805 Kinetic Armor.jpg 10:54, 21 April 2007 (CDT)

um... i'm new, but am i wrong in thinking that it will end due to the fact that healsig=skill ie. the skills that end after use of b's defense?User:Saibot_Ra

Why would you use Bonettis for 2 seconds defense? Saibot is correct, it will end once Heal Sig finishes casting. --- VipermagiSig.JPG -- (s)talkpage 20:03, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
But you wouldn't get hit for the double damage that healsig gives. Also you could cast it at the end of the duration... why am i defending this. ~ JujipooJujinicon.jpgtalk 02:12, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Does it count spells?[edit source]

Simple- when using this as an extra on say a spirit bonder, do spells end bonetti's defense?

It says "skill," and that would mean any skill, including spells. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 04:05, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
