Example: please tell me how tf i'm not supposed to take any damage and counter and do damage during stage 2 of the latest extreme quest when there's 4 bosses all attacking me at once. Please show me footage of someone accomplishing such a feat. I'll wait.
Dodge into the nearest attack and use the Starfire Squall counter. It's got iframes throughout the whole thing, hits hard, and pierces. Haven't tried it yet, but you might even be able to dodge cancel it into itself. If not, just time it normally. The hard part is weaving your normal rotation into that. If you're getting attacks tossed at you from every direction constantly, you can just rely fully on counters.
Has anyone done the calculations on comparative DPS if you alternate getting smacked by an attack and countering the next one? Like if the enemies attack at the perfect speed to pull that off with zero downtime, are you doing better or worse than other classes using their options with the same timing?
@AiC-L You can dodge cancel it.
