Description of Skill
Stratagems: Parry is a combat-related support skill that focuses primarily upon defensive strategies involving the parrying and deflection of attacks. Passively, the Stratagems: Parry determines your likelihood of parrying a blow (of which is the complete and total deflection of an attack) while using a shield. The greater your skill in Stratagems: Parry, the more likely you are able to block an attack when wielding a shield. The parrying of blows can also be performed with weapons, both two handed and one handed, if the skill ability Advanced Parrying is purchased. Parrying chance suffers a penalty when a player's strength is below 80 points, calcuated by the following formula: chancetoparry = chancetoparry * (20 + player's Str) / 100. Stratagems: Parry is also used to purchase and subsequently use a number of combat-based skill abilities available only through the Stratagems: Parry skill.
This skill can be raised 1% at a time for a cost of 3 Animus. A total investment of 300 Animus points will raise this skill to a 100% skill value.
