Tips and Details[edit]

  • You can extend the counter stance by holding the skill key, making the frame for a successful counter a lot more lenient. If let go immediately, the counter frame will only last a split second and end with "!?" appearing above Elsword.
  • Counter Attack will block most physical attacks and few Special Actives (such as Berserker Blade, Bloody Accel, Mega Slash, and Shadow Blast).
  • Counter Attack will not counter magic-based attacks like Explosive Fist or Energy Absorption, attacks that hit your back, or most Special Actives. It also cannot counter attacks that inflict Stun or Power Stun.
  • Counter Attack should not be used against a Super Armored opponent as the counter will not snap the foe out of Super Armor, rendering you completely defenseless after Elsword performs Counter Attack.
  • In PvP, you can use Counter Attack to counter and launch the opponent if they were to attack back while they are knocked down.
