Riposte is an Active Skill. It needs to be placed on the QuickBar so it can be used. If no enemy is in range, then the attack fails and the Mental Energy is wasted. This Physical Skill can only be used while Scarlett is wielding a Sword. It is only effective against enemies using blade weapons (Swords or Scythes.)

Scarlett can learn this Physical Skill (or increase her Level of Mastery) from any of several of the Physical Skill Teachers she meets: Rangar, Abd el Malik, Ulrik or Akbah.

Scarlett can only learn this Physical Skill after she has learned its prerequisite, Sword Block, and has accumulated sufficient Skill Points.
