- "Darts behind the target after parrying their attack, then slits their throat."
An assassin 'counter' or 'riposte' skill - activating easy kill prior to an enemy's physical attack causes a counter move that involves the arisen rapidly mounting the foe and performing necks strikes.
The counter must be performed within a certain time frame prior to the attack, though the window of opportunity is greater than that of shield Perfect Blocks.
Does not generally counter arrows or spells, or minor enemy grab attacks - but will counterattacks from giant creatures, including certain of their grabs, as well as Ur-Dragon's Holy Furor and Bolide.
Upgrades to Masterful Kill, a more powerful counter with an unlimited time window for countering.
