What is Counterforce?
Counterforce is a new stat introduced in Season 3 Chapter 3 Episode 2 (Astera). Your Counterforce stat (in conjunction with a boss's "Counterforce Resistance" stat) has a direct impact on your damage output. The mechanic applies to bosses Claire, Eternal Elchulus, Macha, Agares, and future raids.
Is having Counterforce essential?
Yes -- if you intend to play the new content. First if you participate using Quick Battle (QB) you will not be able to join if you do not meet the minimum Counterforce stat requirements. Even if you join a boat from the board without meeting minimum Counterforce requirements you will do negligible damage regardless of your gear/stats.
(boss Counterforce Resistance + 100) - your Counterforce = Damage Dealt. Floor is 10% and caps at 100%.
