  • Players with both 80 Magery and 80 Parrying or greater may cast spells and meditate with a shield equipped (meditation rate will still be affected by the shield's meditation penalty)


Parrying Melee Attacks

  • Chance to parry a melee attack is (50% * (Parrying Skill / 100))
  • Successfully parrying an attack from a creature will reduces its damage by 75%
  • Successfully parrying an attack from another player, while wielding a two-handed weapon, will reduce its damage by only 50% however


Parrying Spells

  • Players have a (25% * (Parrying Skill / 100)) chance to parry a spell cast by a creature

  • Requires at least 80 Parrying to attempt Removed: Patch 26/27


Directed Taunt

  • Upon making a Directed Taunt towards a specific creature, a Parrying Skill check is made

Area Taunt

  • Upon making a Area Taunt (by targeting themselves), a Parrying Skill check is made
  • On a Parrying Skill check success, the player massively increases their aggro towards all creatures within 12 tiles for 10 seconds,
  • The player will then have a 30 second cooldown before they can make another Taunt attempt

Training

  • Parrying is trained through combat, primarily with a Shield equipped
  • Up to 50.0 skill can be trained by a NPC Battle Trainer
  • Skill gains for Parrying up to 70.0 are accelerated in the New Player Dungeon
  • Gain chance seems better with a creature but there seems to be a limit on how much Parrying you can gain from each creature
  • There is no limit on gains sparring with another player
  • 50-70 With a shield equipped let many creatures hit you in the New Player Dungeon. Kill them if you no longer gain from them
  • 70-100:
    • Method One:
    • Head to a graveyard with minimal or secluded casting mobs
    • Round up as many zombies and skeletons as possible. Let them all hit you till you don't notice gains
    • Kill them and repeat as needed
    • Method Two:
    • Purchase Wooden Training weapon from any NPC Provisioner vendor
    • Equip the Wooden Training weapon on a 2nd account character and attack the character who is training Parrying
    • Then toggle War/Peace on the character training Parrying


Notes:

  • If both characters are not in the same guild the attacker will be flagged a criminal
  • You will need a way to heal the character training Parrying
