    Your best parry sit?

    Post by Pargar-theGreat on Thu May 03, 2012 5:35 pm

    What was the best parry you've had in a situation? win or lose. i can' t wait for the day i can record these.

    This isn't quite my finest parry work but it was funny imo; btw summary, 2nd paragraph *)

    When i invaded i saw a funny looking man dueling a lighting claw and a thorned whipped and wearing a ridiculous assortment of garments. I give him a jolly joy hello, no response, "praise the sun" no response
    "prayer" no respnse. So i run down to the normal fighting area bow and start toying with him, he keeps healing, 1 bc our fight seemed to last forever and two because i poisoned him. so i ran away to heal and let him start fresh... kinda thinking he was a noob by this point.

    i bowed he bs'ed me i wog'ed him and kicked him.
    as he healed i bs'ed him and stepped away ,pretty far away
    he stared sprinting i did two jump backs (pressing O )
    he missed with the sprint claw attack, then as i parried he swung
    whaha. parry complete lol ...... but this didn't kill him and i did end up loosing but wtih that said this entire fight was enjoyable, he had no honor and i felt i taught him a lil something

    but

    i got invaded by a dm(obviously no honor) i buff then he runs away until my buff runs out, no problem i still have 50 str, he then buffs and chips away at my health until i have less then five percent health and he has about two thirds of his, hes thinkign of going for the finishing blow and since i figured what the hell im gonna die anyway becasue i was so annoyed casue ue ran the whole fight so i parry and roll away then i get a 2 secs delay parry then i roll back in and bs him since i had to time to riposte and kill him with my DGM, it felt so good.

    The other night I had a guy start spamming my caestus character with spear attacks, so I started parrying. After about three hits, the parry goes off and I riposte and he goes down to the ground with about a third of his health. Acting on a bit of a 6th sense sort of deal, I parried as soon as he got up, only for the parry to be successful, and finish him off by snapping his neck for the second time.

    First time I ever had someone actually message me to say I pulled off a bad-*** stunt.

    So, I invade in the forest, and obviously, it's a guy with a phantom. I, with my target shield, Bandits knife, and hornet's ring, run to the bridge by Alvina, so that they come at me one by one. The phantom runs, takes one swing, and I knock his hit away and shove my blade into his lower chest. Dead. Now, the host is like "Woah, didn't see that one coming." He runs by me, jumps down into the mushroom man area, and runs for dear life. I run after him. Eventually, he turns unexpectedly and swings his Black Knight Great Axe. You could almost hear me laugh Lautrec style as my blade enters his intestines.

    Except that he lived. He runs and heals. Then, when I get close, he hornet's ring backstabs me, and I die.

    I am invading in the forest again, and what do you know? It's the same guy! This time, I'm ready for him. He was alone, assumedly summoning a phantom. First, I hit him with my Painting Gaurdian Sword, so that he wont survive my parries. He takes one swing at me and... Parry, riposte, dead. I was so proud of myself! Hurrah

    Hey, There are dill holes in every cov rant. Being a dm doesn't automatically mean someone is a prick.

    Anyways, my best parry was against a zweihander in the dukes. It was my 1st playthrough so i was undergeared and this guy was whooping me pretty badly but he had a habit of doing the rolling r1. The last time he tried it a light just came on and i parry/riposted him ftw.

    in all my hours of playing dks i have only met about 5 legit duelers that were dms but yeah, they all have rotten apples. today was my first day gravelording and i have encountered more honourable duels than all my time spent in dw, dm and hosting.

    My best parry ever happened 3 nights ago. I got summoned to go kill sif, and as we are summoning a 3rd a darkwraith invades on stairs. I bow and slowly start walking up the stairs. I see him quickly 2 hand his claymore so i pause for half a second and parry, boom. I then walk back down the stairs and watch as the host and other phantom rush in to gank him. The DW almost kills them both and im just watching from the back. Then when the DW died they both did the well what is it. I did the look skyward face palm BCed out and tried to invade him.... but got some one else....

    But yea that parry felt so bad ***.

    My favourite would have to be a tie between two similar situations, one in the PW and the other in the forest.

    In the forest one time I spawned in surrounded by three people, all with a MLGS, I had a G Halberd, Hornet's Ring, and a grass shield on hand. As soon as I spawned I couldn't really see them until the very last second, at which point I hit L2. Suddenly they started attacking, then did Well What is it. Rather, two of them did, the host got parry Riposted by me for an instant kill, as he hit the ground his Phantoms merely puffed their chests out at me not realizing I had lived. That, is just how confident they were, that they were going to kill me.

    In the painted world once I spawned on the bridge as a DW, and found myself facing downed three enemies. This toon was poorly equipped, just messing around to help the Life Hunters really. When I spotted a golden phantom in my face, waiting spamming kick at me. I started rolling and evaded every single kick as the others watched the bridge, the host in between the two in case someone spawns somewhere else. Finally he got bothered and took a swing at me with his BKGA, which I parried. I rolled forwards, as you can pass through a parried person and get behind them. Not being able to damage him much, I just BS'ed him, sending him clear off the edge killing him. Suddenly the other two turned and both rushed at me. I pulled out my Catalyst and used CHSM, as this was actually an Int Toon. The host rushed me and trying to hit me with his Katana, another parry. As he was staggered my CHSM hit him for almost 1k damage, then I riposted him with my Velka's finishing him off.

    Best Parry ever was 3v1 in Dark Anor.

    They chased me from the 1st bfire to the O&S entrance so i managed to back stab a phantom, as i was recovering from the BS animation the other phantom positioned himself behind me to BS me i turned & parred him.
    Both phantoms survived the BS / parry.
    Than the host positioned himself behind me i i did the same to him 1 hit KO-ing him.

    Walked like a boss to the bathroom after that

    CLUTCH PARRIES <3

    My most satisfying parry/beastmode moment was in the Kiln. Invade to a 2v1, so I do some footsies to get the two separated. Now properly positioned. Beastmode engaged. I BS the host and during the animation the phantom naturally steps behind me for an assumed easy BS.

    WELL NOT TODAY, LITTLE BUDDY!

    I whip around like a boss and parry. It connects. Phantom gets slammed. I high five myself mentally. Host heals the phantom through the entire animation, and positions himself behind me. Again, as expected. Immediately parry, and it connects. WHAT?! I'm feeling like some kind of magician as the host eats dirt. The phantom, let's call him Super Genius, steps behind me again... Oh god, could it be? Could I really get three consecutive first swing parries? Can it even be done...?

    PARRY EFFING RIPOSTE!!! At this point I'm so hyped up on beastmodery that I'm yell-laughing and going "OHHHH" over and over again. I don't even care about a win anymore. The host finally gets the picture and they eventually get the win.

    Never felt so good to lose.

    I was having a great duel with Yog after some parry training with him, and we're both down to very low health. He whips out Prisc Dagger, its damage is insignificant and he was using Lifehunt last fight so I was wearing Bloodbite. Figured why not, went for the parry, and dealt a whopping 621 damage to end the fight. That was my first true pvp parry. Turns out they're immensely satisfying.

    This actually happened two days ago. I am pretty decent at parrying and parry quite often while forest hunting. I've already parried 2 people before this but I never can get the riposte because I have always had bad positioning. But while invading in forest I parried a guy and killed him with my riposte. I invade him again and kill him the same way twisted t

    My name is Imareteet23, and I'm a parry junkie.

    Seriously, that's what I am. I will die 6/10 times whilst trying to parry, but when I land them, I know I will never stop. Best feeling ever!

    It's gratifying to know you're getting better and better at parries when you're able to blind parry with increasing success, and not because you spammed it. You calmly approach, parry one time, like a boss, and you get that wonderful bounce... <3

    i'm new to the parry scene. maybe 2 weeks of exp in. SL60. ToG. +5 lightning bandits and hornets ring on. thats secondary equip, primarily 2hand a falchion with GMW. But he had a phantom and they were pretty high level. Phantom in full havels. BS killed him 1 time. Host. Parried his first attack. But didn't land the riposte. Embarassing. He swings again. Parried him AGAIN. Missed the riposte. I laughed nervously. He swings again. Parried him for the 3rd time in a row. Calmly repositioned and landed the riposte for the ohko. Man, i though parrying was gonna be the hard part. I got serious work to do.

    Oh man, I hear that sound in my dreams. ❤

    @PPG lol, that happens to me all the time. But it can be pretty fun when you continually parry the oncoming strikes, but never riposte. I feel like a cat toying with it's prey. twisted

    And also, what loadout do all of you fellow parry junkies use? I use Bandits Knife and Targets Shield with zero poise. Then when I feel daring I switch to a plain dagger and the effigy shield.
