Keywords are: 'warrior skill parry' Skill: parry Lvl 4 Warr (21%) Parry is a warrior skill used to deflect an opponents' blow with your weapon. In order to parry you must be wielding a weapon. It is a passive skill, which means that it is always active if you are wielding a weapon. While most weapons and unarmed attacks can be parried, non-solid attacks such as blasts, zaps and spits cannot. Parrying with a weapon varies in effectiveness depending on the type of weapon, and whether or not a shield is used. Using a two handed weapon is the most effective, however while using such a two handed weapon you will be unable to use a shield to block attacks. Using a two-handed weapon, or dual wielding two weapons, is about 70% as effective at blocking attacks with a two handed shield. Two handed weapons and dual wielded weapons also have a higher minimum chance of parrying attacks, similar to blocking with a two handed shield. Using a one handed weapon without a shield is about half as effective as using a two handed weapon. Using a one handed weapon with a one handed shield has a little less than half effectiveness, making the combination about 80-90% as effective as using a two handed shield. It is highly recommended that all players learn this skill at some point. Even if you have a low dexterity, or a low warrior level, parry can still serve to protect your character from a sizable percentage of attacks.
