MAX RANK:

- Strengthens Counterattack.
- Use Guard to block an enemy's attack, and then counter with a strong smash while the enemy is startled.
- A successful Guard does not guarantee a successful Counterattack. Counterattacks are only possible when Guard is used at precisely the right moment.
- You cannot use Counterattack if your shield is broken.

<Controls>
Mouse: Press Smash[Right-click] after a successful Guard
Keyboard: Press Smash[D] after a successful Guard

Additional Details[edit | edit source]

  • Fiona-only skill.
  • Requires a small shield to use. Large shields (i.e. Kite Shield) cannot be used to execute counterattack.
  • Can be used immediately after a successful guard
    • Upon successful guard, let go of guard and press smash to perform Counterattack. Guard must be dropped; Counterattack won't trigger while the player is guarding.
  • Can be used up to two times consecutively. Press Smash again after the first counterattack to deal a second counterattack.
    • Only the second counterattack can be aimed by pressing a directional key. If not aimed, it will simply strike forward in the direction of the player's front.
  • Has a high chance to stun the enemy.
  • It is possible to stun more than one enemy with counter attack, provided they are within the splash range of the weapon.
  • Consumes high amount of stamina.
  • Generates 45 SP per enemy hit.
    • Both hits can generate SP.
  • Can crit.
  • Cannot be used with Heavy Stander. See Heavy Stander Counter.
  • This skill is great for break-off the part that is used to attack, such as Blood Prince's lance.
  • Using Active: Shield Enhancement greatly increases the damage of the second hit. This skill is only usable when a Longsword is equipped.
  • Ranking up Active: Shield Enhancement increases the damage of the first hit, as a passive bonus (regardless of which weapon is equipped).
