Riposte and counter are two different things. Basically all weapons that deal thrust damage can be used to counter. Attacking an anamy in the middle of his attack animation with a thrust weapon will increase tge damage dealt by around 20%.

A headshot isnt Counter Damage, thats a Critical Hit. All weapons do the same amount of Counter Damage, its just the Leo Ring that only affects the Counter Damage from Thrust weapons, Crossbows do Thrust damage, and so therefore benefit from the Leo Ring

It does thrust damage so it benefits from the leo ring. I'd probably go leo, red tearstone and power within. Staying below 30% healtb shouldn't be too big of an issue since you're staying at a distance.

i started an SL1 crossbow only run as a bit of a joke, but uh, i dont think crossbows are a joke anymore. a +5 light crossbow (with large bolts) made gargs and capra almost trivial.

Okay, when I wear a crossbow I have three buttons for one and the same attack. Dear Fromsoft team, one of these keys could have been used for manual aiming as with bows ...
