"Sends foes staggering back when the user blocks an attack. A perfect block blasts foes with a fireball, setting them aflame."
- Upgrades to Flame Riposte.
- After a relatively brief incantation, enchants the magick shield with the fire element. The enchantment lasts for 60 seconds. While the enchantment is active regular blocks deal moderate fire damage. Perfect Blocking conjures a fireball at the attacker (requires the reflect skill to conjure the fireball).
- Firecounter is an excellent ability due to the relative frequency of fire-averse enemies (especially in the early game). Fireballs from a perfect block travel a fair distance, allowing a Mystic Knight to punish even distant attackers like archers.
- Like other counter abilities is complimented significantly by the Prescience augment.
