Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements


Land 25 special attacks out of Parry.  

The Riposte skill will require 50 points spent in one of either the Might or Finesse class specializations to unlock the final Weaponry focus, which will unlock the after-parry attack for the specified weapons. It is the leftmost tree in each of those classes. Note that the Sorcery tree does not have an after-parry special attack! Alternatively, you can put 37 points into each of the three trees to unlock the "Mastery of Arms" perk which will give you every available weapon ability.

To perform the special attack, follow the method to parry found in the "Foiled Again!" achievement, then simply use a basic attack with whichever Weaponry focus you've obtained during the "slow-mo" time after the successful parry.

This is to perform an attack out of a parry but does that actually mean perform an ability out of a parry? The wording on these achievements is confusing because the achievement reads "special attack" but nothing in games is referred to as a special attack. What you are describing is an "ability" according to the wording in game. Like Reckoning Rampage where the achievement reads "Kill 5 enemies in a single Fateshift" but the game doesnt actually refer to it as a Fateshift it refers to it as "Reckoning Mode"

@3 Precise Weaponry IV unlocks special attacks after a parry; Punishment for Daggers and Savage Wing for Faeblades. They function the same as the Riposte skill for the Might Tree, so imagine they will unlock the achievement as well.

You can always go to a fateweaver and change your stuff completely around for pretty cheap the first few times. Just make sure you have some melee oriented weapons.

Damn! That means you'll need 50 points in Finesse to even be able to try to get it if you're playing as a Rogue character! @_@

The easiest way to get this without putting so many points into any one class is to use the Universalist destiny so all the weaponary skills are unlocked

So wwhat you need to do, is use a shield to parry, then swing a sword and hit them? Agree that wording for the achievements are pretty obscure.
