Have you seen someone take on a boss you struggled with and take it down in no time, and you can’t figure out how? Using counterattacks is the way to do it.
Lost Ark is an MMOARPG. This means that the game is heavily dependent on player skill, rather than just stats. As a result, some encounters may be more difficult than others if all the tools available to the player are not used effectively. The most important tool, when dealing with boss class monsters, is abilities with a counterattack option.
No matter what class you play, due to the size of the Boss monsters in Lost Ark, you’ll find yourself uncomfortably close to them, leaving you no time to simply dodge some of their dashes, charges, thumps, or other abilities. with similar effects. However, each boss monster glows by charging these abilities, signaling players to prepare for a counterattack. In Lost Ark, “counterattack” is a tag on certain abilities, rather than the ability itself.
This is when you use your counterattack ability to turn the boss’s crowd control against him and deal free damage.
Every class in the game has at least one counterattack ability, even Bard. All you have to do is find the ones that have this effect, unlock them, and equip them.
It should be noted that certain abilities, on certain classes like Paladin, are more suited for this and are easier to perform. However, for the sake of balance, even if you’re playing a Squishy Reaper, you still have the option to do so.
