View Full Version : Do people actually parry with the flash indicator?

I've always just done it right before I get hit, similar to deflecting.

No, that's why people still fall for feints.

If I try to actually use the prompts for parry or GB I can't time it. I have to be zoned out and then I do it more on instinct.

I stopped using the indicator and started parrying by watching when their weapon will hit me and my parrying improved ten fold because of it. I no longer need to memorise different timings or fall for unblockable feint spam now that I look for their weapon to come close to me to know when it is safe to parry.

Past a certain point the indicator will lead you astray if you get tunnel vision and rely solely on it.

*stabs with a fork instead* (good point though)

You must learn the ways of the cutlery.
