Wait a minute, I recall using magic and counter worked just fine against it? I guess You meant nosferatu/aversa's night then.


Counter will only proc if the units are adjacent, so attacking from a range is safe.


Ohhhhhhh. Heh, guess I should of read the description first before attacking the chapter 13 boss with MU and activating Ignis twice...

Counter is perfectly fair in this game. It only works for indirect attacks, it doesn't apply when attacking from a range. So just simply have a bow user attack the warrior or use a ranged weapon on him. It's not that hard, far from it in fact.

Counter is essentially the "n00b killer" skill in Awakening. It's almost pointless for the player (unless the unit has low defense) but for enemy mooks it can completely catch you off guard. As the above poster mentioned however, it has plenty of weaknesses. As long as the Warrior isn't wielding a bow or ranged axe, any ranged attacker can damage it safely. It's also worth noting that if you can one-shot them, Counter won't do them much good.

Unless it appears more often on Hard or Lunatic, you don't run into it much either.

That aside, now I want to try that Bow Knight Roy Supersonic posted...

It does appear more often. In fact, it has a bad habit of appearing on warriors who have a 1 range weapon and very low def, who are sitting right in the middle of an enemy mob. See where I'm going with this?
