Tips and Details

  • Holding the skill will allow Elsword to hold his counter stance up to 5 seconds.
  • Despite being classified as a Destruction skill, there is no way for the skill to charge or consume Way of the Sword.
    • Holding the skill does not cost any MP but is not indefinite, unlike Guard.
  • Elsword will not actually counter but only reflect projectiles back. He'll continue to hold his stance and reflect any other projectile that comes his way.
    • There is a chance he will instead receive hitstun as if he were hit. No damage is taken and the projectile is still reflected. This will end the skill.
  • The reflected projectile applies Magic Chain and both apply and activates Sword Enchant.
  • Arrows from Dark Elf Sentinels and Chloe strangely cannot be countered.


  • There is no visual "reflect barrier" visible in this skill, unlike Counter Attack. Elsword also lacks the question mark when nothing hits him during the counter.
