Daily. The character may, once per Logistics period per purchase after using any Dodge, Parry, or Evade skill, immediately make a single weapon swing. When using this swing, positioning requirements may be ignored.

Any offensive skills or spells used from memory during this attack are not expended, but must have at least a single use available at the time of Riposting Blow. Any Rituals used during this attack are expended.

Example: Panda has a Parry, a Riposting Blow, and a Slay available. Panda also knows Eviscerating Blow, but she used it earlier in the same Logistics Period. She is attack by an enemy swinging for “50 Doom!” This terrifying attack would kill her outright, so Panda uses her Parry skill to stop the attack. Panda expends her Riposting Blow along with the Parry, and swings back with her Slay! Because she’s using Riposting Blow, the Slay won’t be expended whether or not it connects. Note that Panda can’t use her Eviscerating Blow with this attack, since she used it earlier.
