    My first parry in PVP :D

    Post by berkut on Tue Apr 24, 2012 8:24 pm

    I managed to get my first parry in pvp last night. I was helping people in the Archive. The person who summoned me was wallowing around (may have been a ganker, hmmmmm). Anyways, while I waited for him to respond to me pvp or pve message, someone invades before I can get my answer (of course). I move out to try and see what I can do, while the host scurries off into some dark corner after trying to summon someone else (leaning towards ganker). I am standing by the central stairs when I hear a buff noise, I roll just in time to avoid a backstab by someone using a dmb buffed club. We move around for a bit, and a few quick swipes almost kill me. I then try to gauge when he is going to swing and begin the parry motion just as he starts to swing (got lucky considering there was lag). My chaos claymore +2 entered his chest as I gleefully felt proud that I pulled it off. Then I realized he was still alive silly. I get in another swing, which almost kills him, then he finishes me off . We chat after, and he seemed interested in the fc that we do here, perhaps he will one day check it out and become a regular.

    I don't mean to 1-up OP...

    I got my first parry as a chameleon today! lol

    Been wanting to do this for a while, but it slipped my mind until today. I was invading in Lost Izalith, felt like trolling a bit so I chameleoned into a fire-jabba every chance I got. I placed myself in a really good spot, looked legit, and this host came down the vine and started swinging at all the jabbas on the way--was perfect. I acted like the mob I was impersonating, ambling toward the host like he'd aggroed me, and he takes his standard 2h R1 swipe at me like I was a regular jabba... Only his arm went flying off this jabba as I came out of my chameleon and riposted my BSS into his heart!

    @BLA1NE now that sounds like fun. I've been using chameleon in the forest with some success. I think a different location might be more effective for me since people rarely just attack trees.

    Congratulations man. When I see players using roll +R1 I try to predict when they'll do it and parry just after their roll. It is the easiest parry in PvP, you will almost always connect the parry.

    Parrying in PvP is like crack to me. Even though I miss a lot, and lose because of it. But, one successful riposte makes it all worth it.

    I do ok 1v1 but I do a happy dance every time I win a 2v1 solo. My days in the NG kiln prepped me well for the popular types of forest hosts.

    They would for sure attack a moving tree! winking

    I don't know how you parry, though, but I did have to make some adjustments to be able to pull it off. Usually I'll fast-walk up to an opponent, and I'll know just by the range that they've probably attacked, and more often than not I parry successfully this way. But when you're in chameleon, you're reduced to a very slow walk. This threw off my instinctive range-parry prediction, so I had to adjust a bit. Like I said, I don't know how you parry, but you'll probably have to make some slight adjustments.

    @BLA1NE sound advice thanks. I havnt established a technique for parry yet. I'll slow walk and turtle at first if I don't know the move set of my opponents weapon. After a couple blocks ill lower my shield and try to draw them in provided they don't pull out a shortel (havnt been able to parry shortel yet). My first attempt will usually miss, giving away my intention. They will either back off and go for AoE or start spamming r1. I die more often than not but when I connect its beautiful. Last night invading the forest some campers were standing in front of the spawn point on the steps to the bonfire. As soon as I could I spammed L2 and landed a parry. Killed the phantom and bs the host at bottom of stairs. It was mostly luck but it sure felt good.

    Nice, I think everyone remembers their first parry. Mine was in the forest against a farmer 1v1 when he tried to get me with a lightning shotel, and I got so excited I screwed up the riposte (sometimes you need to move slightly to your left before riposting). Now I do it all the time, it is definitely addictive.

    I got my first one this weekend. I was invading in the forest and kept invading a guy in full giants gear w/ the BKGA. First time he charges at me, we fight and he stunlocks me to death, second time he spawn ganked me. Third time I waited for the R1 spam and parried right after the first swing and BAM! parry + riposte for the kill. I gave him a bow and he indicted me, to which I gave a hurray!

    I used to hate seeing the BKGA but since I learned to parry I find its one of the easiest weapons to counter. Now when I see it I get excited big grin

    I love the BKGA too. I don't parry it but I fought enough knights at the Kiln to know where the blade is and isn't. Nothing makes me happier than the dumbfounded expression I imagine there is on a ganker's face when I casually step backwards out of range. I imagine a big "WHIFF" sound too. It helps to have an active imagination......

    @skarekrow. "WHIFF" lol I do that to, I try to imagine what the player on the other end is saying after I parry with a fire great sword +10 while wearing hornets ring. That has to be my favorite animation in the game. It's so brutal. If I win a 2vs1 I imagine the host rage quit twisted

    I don't get it in PvP much as I stated but I actually cringed the first time I landed a riposte on a hollow soldier with the Great Scythe. I won't spoil it for you but I've seen most of the animations messing around and that one even topped the claws in my opinion. My stepdaughter was watching me play and saw that and she's used to see me doing insane GTA stuff and she even made a comment on it.

    Let me know what you think.......
    twisted

    Also.....for the first time you land it I recommend no buffs, solely because it can muddy your view depending on camera angle.

    (By the way, if you parry someone while in Chameleon, it is obligatory you perform the "Joy" gesture after! ... At least, the first time. I did it a dozen times today, did the gesture half that time--every time the gesture almost got me killed! silly)

    Checked out the Great Scythe, its pretty bad ***. The parry animation reminds me of the bandit knife. I like the move set as well, the first time I used the weapon I wasn't very impressed but that was months ago and my taste have changed since then. I'm going to start a new build tonight and I think I'll go with the scythe. I don't see it a lot in pvp and I need a change, the swords are getting a little boring.

    @BLA1NE lol I did the joy gesture after my 2nd pvp parry because I was sure my first was a fluke. I did die to a backstab but I didn't care I was so happy I figured the parry out. The opponent must have thought I was crazy. If I do parry while in chameleon I'll be sure to jump for joy as I will be literally jumping for joy. cheers
