    how to parry the gank back stab?

    Post by mocizzle on Tue Dec 11, 2012 11:53 pm

    Ok so the title may not make sense but basically you know when you're in the situation where you're being ganked and u back stab one of the guys, so immediately during ur back stab the other ganker steps behind you. I have seen people turn real quick and parry them instead of getting backstabbed, no matter how fast i click the buttons it won't work for me... is there a certain button i need to press or do something special? (im on Xbox)

    Just keep practicing, I'm sure you'll get it eventually. You just have to turn around and parry, no special button presses required.

    May be try using your lock on mechanic,if you have not already.
    It may turn you round faster if you can some how lock on to that target behind you with out you having to turn,not sure if this is possible but in theory it should work but in practise is a completely different story.
    Good luck......

    Its essentially a pivot parry so unlock and flick the direction the ganker is and parry you still have to get the timing right or you will eitha partial or fail, best advice would be to get a friend to keep rushing for you while you face a wall and practice it until your confident but also remember turning to face one enemy turns your back to another

    ok when i was new to PVP and really got into it i encountered this problem too, i learned never to back-stab. instead use more sophisticated alternatives. the G.scythe has a nice R2 when 2 handed, WOG or any other AOE can save you from spammers but mst importantly USE THE ENVIRONMENT make them back off an edge get them eaten by a dragon!

    I'm not very confident in this technique yet, so I prefer to just get up and take the fail bs hit, when you don't press any buttons.
    Since most people use rapiers and daggers for bs, it won't hurt to get hit by one R1, but with Str weapons, that may be a problem, but you can usually manage to block/evade it.

    You can simply unlock your target, turn around and block, or if you have a better AR than them hit them.

    Since your lock on disengages automatically when you backstab or get backstabbed, I would recommend turning the camera and locking on to the guy behind you while you are still in the backstab animation. Then parry or back up and parry as soon as you are free of the animation.

    I wouldn't do this. If you lock on, your character will turn around too slow, and the guy behind you most likely backstabs you. Like billy said, the best way to do this is turning around locked off and then parry. They can still get the backstab if they are good at timing chainstabs even if you already turn around on your screen. Other good ways to escape that situation are rolling towards the guy behind you (and possibly roll bs if they have a slow weapon/spell), pivot great combustion/black flame (45 dex probably required) or a hit with very fast weapon. The damage will cancel their backstab. Thorn armor set piece + rolling towards him will also cancel the damage.

    Going for the parry is risky, but extremely satisfying (and flashy) if it works. Keep in mind that roll backstab is much easier and still a damaging counter.

    yep, what billy and fin said. the best way to do this is just go to a safe spot, parry then as soon as the parry animation is over press down on the joystick while unlocked and as soon as your toon turn around parry right away, its gonna take a little practice though.

    take note though if the gankers timing is perfect there is nothing you can do to prevent the backstab.

    thankfully most gankers suck, i think ive only gotten chained once or twice by them.

    Yea, that was just to let OP know that if he gets backstab bed before he can even turn around, he did nothing wrong.

    It actually happen to me alot when we do arena, I'd say 30% the backstab I do result in me backstabed after, I always try and replicate it, but never can

    I could be wrong, but i think thorn armor roll can save you even if the timing is perfect. At least it has always saved me.

    ohhhh ok so i roll into them? i usually just roll forward and that works most of the time, yea i think the problem i had was i tried to lock on to the other guy and it basically turned too slow or just locked on to the guy i backstabbed... yea i've been thinking about using the thorns armor for honestly the stats on it really suck lol so idk, i guess i'ma just keep invading until i get it down i tried watching the ewgf vid on how to avoid it but that vid was mad confusing halfway through it lol
