Flame Riposte is a Fire based skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"An advanced form of Firecounter that persists for a longer period of time and conjures more tongues of fire upon a perfect block."

An advanced version of Firecounter.

In Dark Arisen, it becomes Inferno Feint with a suitable Magick Shieldsman's Ring or Magick Shieldsman's Band equipped.


  • After a relatively brief incantation, the magick shield is enchanted with the Fire element. While the enchantment is active, regular blocks deal a moderate amount of Fire damage in a small area in front of the knight. A Perfect Block will conjure multiple fireballs at the attacking enemy, similar to the High Ingle spell.
  • For notes, tactics, and other details on conjuring and using this class of 'parry' or 'counter' spell with perfect blocks see Mystic Knight Shield Counters.

In this video, the Arisen executes 13 Perfect Blocks to activate the Flame Riposte spell on her magic shield and ignite Ingle Fireballs back at the attacking Eliminators. The Prescience augment is not equipped for this demonstration.

  • Firecounter and Flame Riposte are excellent counter-attack skills due to the abundance of enemies weak to Fire (especially in the early game). The Ingle fireballs from a Perfect Block travel a fair distance, allowing the Mystic Knight to slay enemies firing ranged attacks (such as arrows and spit attacks).
  • Like other elemental counter abilities, Flame Riposte is easier to execute with the Prescience Augment.
  • The enchantment lasts for 2 minutes.
