Riposte?

Post by mauriac » Fri Oct 28, 2016 1:59 pm

I would like to inquire as to whether the riposte skill is non-functioning and if there are any plans to fix it in the near future?

I am also curios about this. I have heard others say that after months or years of playing they have yet to see one skill up in it. I know the Mobs can riposte quite well, but I haven't been able to test it out.

I would want this fixed as well. One, if not two, of my characters are heading down the two weapon line, and Riposte is a crucial part of becoming a blender.


Edit: Can we get the helpfile appended with a line saying that the skill isn't working. Like Quick Draw has a blurb about it not working with the current combat system.

In all the years since I've made my character and played FK (albeit with a few long breaks) I've never gained a skill up in riposte. I do indeed believe it is well and truly broken.

That's just great. Thanks, Mask! For this and for all the hard work in bringing FK back. :)

Riposte weirdness

You parry a goblin soldier's attack.
You riposte a goblin soldier's attack.
Your crush beats a goblin soldier to a bloody pulp.
a goblin soldier has several traumatic wounds.
Two problems:
a)I realized today my character did not have riposte trained yet. Until today riposte was a "not known" skill for them.
b)The helpfile states one can only riposte with a piercing weapon. The log above shows this is not the case. So either riposte is not working properly or the helpfile is incorrect.

There are still issues with how this works.
