Google translation of the description:

"Instead, when the power of critical attacks to neutralize the sting of physical defense shield equipped to take a stronger stance."

Based on IMC's release notes + this, it looks like the buff that negates some crit resistance. IMC boasted that this would help higher STR-built Fencers (because DEX would not be as necessary).

Actually, that was “Balestra Fente." IMC said epee stance, "dramatically increases the critical damage of pierce attacks in proportion to the skill level."
