The Stasis Rune allows Link to freeze objects in time, rendering them immobile for a short period of time. While suspended in time, the object will possess a glowing, yellow filter. Chains will also appear when the object is initially suspended to keep it in place; however, these disappear after a short time. After the Stasis effect wears off, the object will revert to normal and move as it was before being frozen.
Stasis can be used to freeze dangerous objects such as boulders in pass, which will allow Link to bypass them or use them to block further obstacles. After using the Rune, a timer gauge will appear which must be restored before Link can use the ability again.
While suspended, objects will store any additional kinetic energy that is added to them. Link can attack the object with a weapon to added kinetic energy; this will cause the object to suddenly shoot off when time resumes. A yellow arrow will appear after an object is struck to indicate the direction it will move in.
This Rune can be upgraded if Link visits the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab and speaks with Purah. She will allow Link to use the Guidance Stone in order to upgrade to Stasis+, which features a shorter cool-down.
