    I don't have a build or setup centered around parries, I just keep the target shield in my back pocket at all times, and I only show them I've got it just before I use it. The baddies don't even think you're capable of attempting a parry, you do a quick shuffle with the left hand and then... BOING! Surprise, little buddy. Haha.

    Landed my first two PvP parries last night during FC in the MoonPit.

    First was the standard block first swing/parry second against a random invader who actually turned out to be a pretty decent guy who then joined our FC chat.

    Second (and most satisfying) was the parry I pulled off on GreenGoblin after he tried the greatsword roll/thrust. I threw out the parry and he hadn't even finished the roll... I was SO surprised that it even connected (seemed like the parry was WAAAAAAYYYYY before his thrust) that I almost forgot to walk over and club him.

    Might want to edit that, it's against the forum rules to call out people with their GT/ID.

    No, random people online that might not want you to give their GT.

    Most of the time now I parry with my Notched Whip. I love that thing! It's amazing in the offhand. Same parry timing as bare fists (which is what I use if not the whip) but also has an attack with decent range, causes bleed, and can't be parried. It's the perfect complement to my PGS, since it has more range. And I use it when an opponent is trying to parry-fish against me--keep trying to parry that whip, see how far you get!

    I don't like OHKs, so I just riposte with my PGS, no crit ring. Only does about 600 damage, but I don't care--only gives me more chances to parry the same guy! And when I come up against a rare weapon, I'll riposte with my bare fists, to make the fight last as long as possible.

    I did try the setup-parry with a shield against a BKGA the other day--had never tried before, I always go for the first swing, so figured I'd give it a shot. Block the first hit, parry, get him on the second swing--was literally too easy!

    I almost always parry with Grass Crest and an SLB Iaito. Doesn't one shot gankers, so I'm trying with the Mura, but no luck yet.

    @BLA1NE

    If I see 'em take multiple swings right out of the gate, I know it's parry time.

    ^I need to get out of parry time more often! I'm quite good at PvP parrying now, I figure it's time to stop going in parry-or-nothing mode and get back to intelligent dodge and counter mode, with a splash of parrying. Once I find the right balance, then I'll be a truly formidable PvPer! (My only weakness, of course, will be my disdain for backstabbing. But I've finally decided on my FC builds now so I'll join you guys there soon, and backstabbing won't be an issue.)

    I usually only go for the heavy weapons or if I run into someone using a weapon I rarely see I'll practice timing. I'm psyched for FC next Wed though. It'll be my first time.

    Currently on my FH build I run Sanctus with my Replenishment on silly Soooo much health regeneration!! but on another note... 1v3 situation here - I have my Murakumo +15 and my Ricards Rapier +15 I spawn in there is a BKGA spamming r1 - instagib parry - He's down! this is where i start rolling away and make the jump across the bridge - I now choose to enchant my Ricards Rapier with SLB once I make it to the stairs - Host casts TWoP like OH F**K! Parry landed on the Phantoms MLGS - screw riposte im on the bridge and my leo ring is on R2 combo - OVER 2000 damage - the TWoPPer runs back seeing his phantom dead and 2h'es his LC (Large Club) I recover my mental state and walk towards him menacingly he goes for the roll attack, PARRY! F**K Yes! r2 combo - unfortunately SB has ran out - this means i did about 1500 damage to him instead - this is when I pull out my Murakumo and Dead angle the cretin big grin

    We have a winner!

    The two phantoms when they died messaged me Nice, GG

    the host messages me: WTF - How did you parry me - you're a f**king hacking a**hole - L2P

    My reaction inside before reading messages Joy
    My reaction on the outside Prayer
    After phantom messages Point Up
    Then I read Host message Look Skyward
