It only works on humans.

Ah damnit! Here I was, hoping to start another playthrough and just riposte everyone and everything to death!
Thanks for the clarification/confirmation mate.

Yeah, it took me while to figure it out cause I was Riposting every damn thing that moved, then cursing the fact monsters just attacked me during the animation..then I realized monsters don't carry a weapon for Geralt to Riposte...

Hmmm. Puzzled here. I learned to use riposte by fighting harpies.

Oh I see what you mean OP, yeah that's one way to instant kill. I can't remember any other.

Watch this vid. The riposte throws the opponent back and lets Geralt (Seltkirk) land the blow clean. My experience with monsters is the riposte does not throw them back to the same degree, so Geralt cannot always land a clean blow. I was going to test this in Arena, but it seems the latest patch broke the installer, and now I can't load the game at all. For some reason CDPR's patches are like poison to my PC.

That's my own video. />
I suspect that there could be a difference in that you only get the insta-kill with humans, or that the effect is stronger. (And it definitely does NOT work against non-humanoid monsters such as endregas)

...the odds. I forgot about Jaegercat.

I was flattered
Anyway, you've got me intrigued about this now. If I get the chance, I'll load up the game later today and test it. I've got a good enough selection of savegames to find something that'll be usable.

A couple of points though
- I would definitely NOT recommend this as a technique against multiple monsters. Note Geralt's health in these examples - those harpies would have been dead a lot faster if I'd just fought them normally.
- I don't know how many monsters this works with. Harpies could be the exception, as I couldn't get it to work on gargoyles. So slimgrin may be almost right.
