    Rapier or Shield

    Post by ScaryPirateDude on Mon Jul 23, 2012 10:56 am

    Currently, I am running with a rapier and a Black Knight Shield in my left hand. Which is going to be better overall for parrying? I'm starting to get good at parrying, but I don't really use the rapier to attack at all. Is it worth it to continue using it?

    why using a rapier for parrying? the parrying dagger is way better and ("I" dont think rapier has range enough to poke in the left hand) you should try the parrying dagger or a small shield if you like to parry

    Don't *** up with the parrying dagger though. If you do, you're screwed.

    I'm fighting easy enemies right now. I'm still getting the timing down. Nothing really at stake.

    i'd go with estoc for your left hand, its really long with a fast parry and can poke and annoy the hell out of your opponents, the parrying dagger is gonna get you bs'd a lot since most people do not attack as soon as they see it and just wait for you to try to parry and since the animation is so long theyre gonna end up bs'ing you.
