Stone, Sky, Sea is the Dummy challenge mode introduced in patch 3.2. It offers trials tailored to various high-level duties, in which players will be tasked with destroying a striking dummy. The strength of the striking dummy varies depending on the difficulty selected, with all trials having a time limit of three minutes. By completing these challenges in the allotted time, players can gauge their ability to perform in the duties associated with each challenge.

This was the developers' answer to player complaints over banning DPS meters in the Terms of Service. The training dummies allow players to indirectly gauge their DPS without the complication of avoiding boss mechanics. By clearing the dummy, players can be sure that their gear and rotation are the bare minimum of sufficient.
