Parry General Information:

  • Parrying is used to mitigate damage of melee blows or archery shots from opponents. You must have a shield equipped to parry.
  • The type of shield has no impact on your chance to parry. Chance to parry is entirely dependent upon a player’s parrying skill.
  • If you fail to parry, a shield offers no protection aside from the base armor it provides.
    • Shields with higher armor have higher dexterity penalties.
  • Players may cast spells and meditate through chaos and order shields with sufficient wrestling and parrying skill.
    • Minimum skill requirement of 50 Parrying and 50 Wrestling to equip Chaos and Order Shields.
  • Parrying is also able to mitigate some of the damage from spells that are casted by creatures and monsters. This ability does not apply to spells casted by other players.
