    Parry + Magic

    Post by lordgodofhell on Sat Aug 11, 2012 10:23 pm


    Hello forums


    Known this for a while now and thought I would share this tid bit of info today. Applies more so to pure chaotic and divine magic users who don't use any melee weapon at all. Also applies to those who land a parry but forget to switch to their melee weapon.

    If you land a parry and immediately cast your great combustion/wog, you receive a bonus damage!

    Also applies to casting these spells when behind them. The damage, as with backstabs, is less than the parry damage but you still receive a bonus.

    Wearing Hornet ring does not increase the damage.

    The damage modifier is around 20% increase for the parry.

    For pvp this knowledge can be useful when facing say a tank greatsword user. He will assume you will keep GCing him and attempt to tank the GC while stunning you into submission. Rarely will he expect you to parry him as you do not have a weapon out in your right hand!

    Just another tactic to consider

    Doesn't have to be a parry, if you land certain magic attacks while getting hit or just after getting hit you get bonus damage. Seems like it's about 30% or so.

    Not that I can tell, but that's exactly what it's like. Apparently it's just built in to the magic attack itself.

    This is also true Cally, however this would require taking damage which is what we are trying to avoid happy

    Thanks Glatts! The few people who have + repped me I always try to let them know it means a lot to me. I don't hold the rep as the ultimate judge of a users quality but I do hold the ones who plus me up as quality users bounce

    The Leo ring does not affect this damage bonus either. Leo only works with thrust attacks while you are being attacked.

    It's called a counter attack, but with Hornet's and an elemental weapon you'll way out damage the GC.

    Assuming they want to use Hornets and or an elemental weapon. The thread was about parry+ magic, that is off topic.

    It's offering an alternative and naming what the term is that is commonly used for that damage increase. So it was on topic. An issue is often if you are landing a parry, you'll more than likely have a weapon in hand instead of your talisman/Flame Glove. Switching out for it will allow them to easily escape, since they aren't caught in a critical animation.

    No, leo ring is physical damage only, as only physical damage can be classified as "thrust" type damage. That also goes for split damage weapons: only the physical portion of damage will receive the bonus on a thrust attack.

    Sorry, I should've mentioned it works after blocking an attack too. Just block and if your equipped spell is fast (like Wrath) you'll get the bonus.
