Notes[edit]

  • The counterattack only activates if an attack is blocked while in melee range of a target. However, the riposte will not activate when a ranged attack is blocked; therefore, all ranged attacks will be blocked for the duration of the block.
  • If this skill is canceled without using Adrenaline Rush, no adrenaline will be gained, this includes using another skill before Counterblow has finished.
The tool-tip does not show the channeling time of this skill (approximately 2.5 seconds).
