    Default How is Ripostes working ?

    Someone told me a riposte allow to avoid an attack. but i didn't find any source about this.

    is it true ? i always tought it was just a counter attack, after a successfull parry/block etc..
    but i never saw anywhere that : extra riposte=parry chance

    extra riposte chance increases your avoidance, additional chance to riposte does not

    A normal parried attack has a percentage chance to allow the victim to riposte(return) an attack. You knew this part already and has always existed.

    There are stats on items/adornments that give an "extra chance" to riposte. This is independent of the character's ability to parry and is a straight percentage chance on top of everything else. (more avoidance)

    There are also stats on items/adornments that give an "additonal chance" to riposte. This merely changes the percentage chance to convert a parry into a riposte. (unchanged avoidance)

    i do remember testing the parry/riposte items and noticing they where uncontested but have not ran any test with strike thru mobs. has anyone ran any test to see if "extra riposte" and " + parry" are still uncontested vs. strike thru?

    So far only Extra Ripost % is the only thing that increases you uncontested avoid from the Ripost stat. The flat-numerical is only the chance to turn a Parry into a Ripost I believe. Though I do feel Guardians should be getting Ripost boosts rather than Block boosts as much. I would much prefer Defensive Minded to be 20% Extra Ripost Chance rather than 20% Dodge change. They are defensively the same thing, except one helps the Guardian's already weak damage.
