    My riposte is definitely working at adding more damage. I tested many, many times yesterday (March 29th).

    However, I do have blade specialization at 70+, so not sure if that matters.

    I suspect this may be fixed now. We patched this around or after the time this report originally came in.
    Are you still seeing this? @EMPstrike

    This is happening to me right now. Riposte bonus damage is not working after a parry. Been using riposte as my favorite skill leveling blades up until today. VERY noticeable that it is not working for me right now.

    @Lexie Definitely not working. Tested just now with a high crit of 201 (low for a 200% normal attack attack) and also tried using Riposte after a successful parry against a shield user and it was blocked. Definitely not working but remember when it was and these attacks would be 400+ damage... my attacks now are 60-80 with low 200 crits... very normal for Riposte.

    Yeah I think it stopped working again.

    It was working at the time of my previous post.

    No bonus to Riposte after successful parry.. Hopefully this will get fixed as it is a useful glyphs for melee combat.

    I just tested on my toon (I do not have blade specialization for whatever that's worth). I am seeing a large bonus to damage when using Riposte after a successful use of Parry.

    Note there will not be a bonus to damage for using Riposte without first meeting the condition of getting a successful parry, which is indicated by the distinct "clang" sound after your parry an enemy's attack.

    Parry is also indicated - and ready for your riposte - by a red-letter combat alert on screen saying "Parried," if you have Name Plates turned on (N).

    I've been watching my riposte more closely lately. Sometimes it doesn't work, majority of the time it does. But when it does, the damage isn't as much as it used to be before.

    Before, as of my first post to the thread, when I (max stack) critted a riposte it sometimes would go to 400+. Then some patch happened and now I'm seeing numbers more of what Sara quoted. I haven't been able to get a 300+ riposte crit anymore.

    Did they maybe change the damage output of it? It was originally a 75% of base attack damage (thrust is 125%) and after a parry the damage is 200% of base attack damage which should put it higher than thrust and this is not what I'm seeing.

    Also, I've tested by having people with a shield hit me until I Parry, immediately Riposte them, and they block the attack leading me to further believe it is not working. @Lexie @Chris
