Dragon's Dogma Wiki

Darkcounter is a dark based skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Sends foes staggering back when the user blocks an attack. A perfect block conjures a dark pall that afflicts enemies with Torpor."

Upgrades to Abyssal Riposte. With Dark Arisen, it becomes Desecration Feint with a relevant Magick Shieldsman's Band equipped.

Darkcounter is unusual amongst all the riposte and counter spells in that its riposte does no damage, only debilitates (with torpor) - the initial perfect block will damage a melee attacker - when upgraded to Abyssal Riposte the dark shockwave does magick damage as well.
