Shield Riposte is a martial stance and shield specialization that allows you to counterattack with shield bashes against enemies that strike you with melee attacks while you are in a forward or greater stance. The effectiveness of these reactive bashes is determined by your ranks in Shield Bash. These reactive bashes inflict roundtime only.

Rank 1: 50% chance to react, one reactive bash per 5 seconds
Rank 2: 75% chance to react, one reactive bash per 4 seconds
Rank 3: 100% chance to react, one reactive bash per 3 seconds

Larger shields reduce the chance to react (-5% per shield size above small), but inflict greater RT.
