First off hello to Uthgard! Glad to be playing here, and having a blast. I played forever ago, and on a whim tried getting back into things. I tried live a bit last month, but it just isn't for me...so I rerolled here.

I'm just leveling up now, (with the help of the great folks in <Riot Control>) and sometimes it's nice to daydream about the RAs to have someday. Reflex attack sounds enticing, but I'm curious if anybody has tried it. It's a 30 second ability usable every 30 minutes that automatically counter attacks every attack you receive.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My question is: DOES AN INCOMING ATTACK ACTUALLY HAVE TO LAND IN ORDER FOR THE AUTO-ATTACK TO ACTIVATE? Obviously as a 14 point goof-off ability it's a long time before I'd be ready to try it myself...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
^^That's the main question...

And how does the RA work regarding dual weapon wielders? Would I conceivably swing after the main-hand attack and off-hand?

And to the point of over-analysis...if a Savage were to quad swing at me, would I swing 4 auto hits right back?

As long as I'm typing a novel here, I'll ask one more question: is it a very visible & obvious ability (like say, vendo)?

I did find some info on the later passive 5 level ability it turned into referring to the "Reflex Attack nerf" So who knows maybe it's great.

Is it possible server populations could dwindle if people figure out 1.65 is the overpowered Friar-Bruce-Lee patch? 8)

Cheers all, thanks for any info.

It doesn't work here at all. I got the RA with the hopes of destroying stealthers 2v1 and really putting the hurt on zerk/savage trains that got on me. It doesn't do anything at all, it is bugged. I should have put in a bug request for it but the staff has enough bugs to look at as it is and basically I'm the only friar who is even RVRing.

I too had a lot of questions about it because it is 30 seconds of counterattacking and it used to be if you spammed boon hard enough it would style the counter. Anyway I tried it like 5 times with assist trains of all sorts on me and nothing ever happened, it is a scam RA that steals your points.

Well, that's lame :?

Maybe by the time I make to 50 and up some realm ranks it'll get some love.

I guess while we're on the subject, how good is Trip RA? Is the snare a normal melee break? How big is the AE?

so, counteratack doesn't trigger on an evaded or parried swing? 14 points is expensive if it triggers only on damage taken

no, ive tested it also recently

even when taking damage it does nothing at all, tried it in 3 different duels before wasting another RA respec to drop it

you activate it, the spell icon works and shows as active but as you take dmg from swings you literally dont counterattack at all, even tried it both swinging at eachother and only dmg i landed was my normal swings


ive open a ticket for it

When i tested this is beta i remember it being a terrible RA. Basically someone HAD to hit you, and then you had a percent chance to do UNSTYLED damage to them. Proc rate seemed very low. Just plain bad RA and probably broken.

it was suposed to work all time at old times i had it on my friar and had a duel with a savage and i was atacking to him even stuned and he was tri-quading and i was atacking back at same numbers but problme was on you ahve to style each atack otherwise tehy suposed to be unstyled atacks. And the atacks you take does not mater to hit you as long as it counts an atack.

it is like you activated a damge shiled and damge shiled uses your staf base damage and name also implies that it is reflex so you can do it even unconcuosily like breathing.
