Clairvoyance is a skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"An advanced form of Clarity. Holds the blade in wait, merely deflecting and countering attacks from greater range, pulling more foes into the attack."

A counter skill that will perform a powerful spinning riposte on enemy attacks. Clairvoyance must be activated shortly before an enemy attacks to initiate the counter strike, similar to a Perfect Block with a shield, but with a larger time window.

Usage and tactics

  • When used correctly Clarity and Clairvoyance function as alternatives to a shield.
    • The counter timing is more generous than that of Perfect Blocking.
    • A wider range of attacks can be blocked by a shield.
    • Useful defensively when using a bow a the secondary, and mitigates the lack of Forward Roll skill to a sword equipped assassin.
  • High knockback and knockdown.
  • An outward slash will not be used if the riposte is used on a bigger monster, like a Cyclops.
  • Does not defend against grabs.
  • Compared to Clarity Clairvoyance has :
    • A wider window of opportunity than Clarity.
    • The circular slash has powerful knockdown, much like a perfect block.
    • The final outward slash of is larger than Clarity, rivaling Full Moon Slash in terms of range. This makes it fairly useful in large, concentrated groups, such as Grimgoblins
