Counter Proc rates...

The way I've understood the Counter+ points from reading many different threads (most are posted under the monk forum in the sticky) is that each point of counter+ = 1%. The base value of Counter is 15%. With Counterstance initialised, that increases the base by 3, to a total value of 45%. Counter gear is then stacked on top of the 45%. This would increase that total to 50%, and if you were lucky enough to have CCs on top, the total proc rate would increase to 55%. There is heavy debate about the gear that affects counterstance, but it is widely believed to merely limit the amount of -DEF that counterstance takes druing initialisation, and it is thought to have no effect on the counter proc rate...

How effective are these?

After 6 or so successful runs at the ENM I finally got these to drop.

Yesterday I used them while soloing with NPC. The enchantment doesn't last very long (5 min or less - I think it's more like 3 min, approx. enough time for me to solo 5 or less easy prey mobs), and the entire time that I had the enchantment (used it twice) I did not have a single counterattack.
I know that counter is somewhat random, but I would have thought I few more times than none. ><

I was wearing my AF pants and did not counterstance. (when I do counterstance I counter maybe 30% of hits, and normally I counter maybe 5% of the time. Perhaps I need a few more modifiers)

Is there something else that I am missing?

Has anyone used these on Maat? what was your strategy?

Oh and for those who are wondering, you need to be wearing the earrings the entire time for the enchantment. If you take them off it automatically cancels.

Well I have 17 more charges, I'll use them up, maybe I'll see more in the future.

Does the counter stack with itself?

just shame it's not counter +5 instead of a enchantment, would make monks even more tankable material.
small correction...

this should be "Enchantment: Counter +5" instead of the current effect description ^^;; still looks good to me ^_^

Yay, now it's even easier for Monks to assrape Maat! =D {/hurray} for Monks!
Did you lose faith?
Yes, I lost faith in the powers that be.
But in doing so I came across the will to disagree.
And I gave up. Yes, I gave up, and then I gave in.
But I take responsibility for every single sin. ♪ ♫

Thank god I stopped playing MMOs.
