    Catarina Armor and Parrying

    Post by WandererReece on Thu Nov 29, 2012 12:45 pm

    Distinctively shaped armor worn by the
    Knights of Catarina.


    Outside of Caterina, it is often ridiculed for
    their onion-like shape, infuriating the proud
    knights, but
    the masterfully forged curved
    design makes it very effective for parrying
    .


    Does this mean It will help me parry if I wear it?

    I don't think so. The term 'parry' means to ward off a blow. Not necessarily as a counter. I'd think that, while From themselves probably wouldn't have used this exact language here, because it's not associated with parrying, I'd be willing to bet whoever translated it to English for them didn't consider that.

    That would be funny to see a bunch of fat onion people every time you invaded.

    Darn, I was going to wear this armor and equip the target shield. Then I was going to attempt a parrying spree.

    I'll tell you what would be an interesting element of this armor: 1 out of every 10 strikes against you glances off the armor and does no damage.

    It is in the game. It's called being hit. I do it in PvP all the time. Here I'll show you: watch me block this with my face..
