- "Sends foes staggering back when the user blocks an attack. A perfect block blasts foes with a fireball, setting them aflame."
After a relatively brief incantation, enchants the Magick Shield with the Fire element. The enchantment lasts for one minute. While the enchantment is active, regular blocks deal moderate fire damage.
- Upgrades to Flame Riposte.
- In Dark Arisen, it becomes Inferno Feint with a suitable Magick Shieldsman's Ring or Magick Shieldsman's Band equipped.
- For details on conjuring and using this class of 'parry' or 'counter' spell with Perfect Blocks see Mystic Knight Shield Counters.
- Firecounter is an excellent ability due to the relative frequency of enemies weak to fire (especially in the early game). Fireballs from a perfect block travel a fair distance, allowing a Mystic Knight to hit even distant attackers like archers.
- Like other counter abilities, it is complimented significantly by the Prescience augment.
