Combat triangle
In Combat, all weapon attacks excluding basic melee and ranged attacks are classified as either Interrupts or Block Breakers.

Interrupting attacks disrupt attacks that are Vulnerable to Interrupt but are Vulnerable to Block.
Blocks disrupt Interrupting attacks but are Vulnerable to Block Breaking.
Block Breakers break Blocks but are Vulnerable to Interrupt.

When hit by a counter mechanism that the player is currently vulnerable to, they are knocked down and take some damage, creating a rock-paper-scissors scenario. Counter damage is based on Precision.

Most Basic attacks are not Interrupts or Block Breakers and are not Vulnerable to Interrupt but may be Vulnerable to Block after a number of hits. Some slower Basic ranged attacks are Block Breakers and are Vulnerable to Interrupt.

Aftershocks, Atomic Combos, Celestial Combos, Construct Combos and Rage Combos are vulnerable to counter mechanisms just as Weapon attacks.

A small icon over a player's head shows which combat mechanism they are using.
