Deflect is a skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"Deflects attacks back toward the assailant."

An advanced version of Defend that allows a shield bearer to Perfect Block incoming attacks when blocking is well timed.


  • For tactics, usage, and details of perfect blocking, see Perfect Block
  • To perfect block, press [Block] just as an enemy is about to make contact with an attack -the perfect block causes a strong knockback effect, reflect substantial damage back to the assailant, and has a good chance to inflict a debilitation when used in combination with an enchanted or special shield.
  • When perfect blocks are not acchieved the shield functions as it does with Defend.
  • The equivalent Mystic Knight skill is Reflect, which can have additional magickal effects.
