Parrying Skill

From BG FFXI Wiki
(Redirected from Parrying)
Jump to: navigation, search

When a physical attack is successfully parried by an equipped weapon, the attack will have no effect on the player.

Overview

Parrying skill is a combat skill that determines a player's ability to parry and completely avoid an incoming physical attack while using a melee weapon. With the exception of BLM, WHM, SMN, and RNG, all jobs have some amount of native parrying skill. The activation rate of parry is determined by the enemy's level and the player's parrying skill and is limited to 20% maximum. Unlike a shield block, parrying can only activate while engaged to an enemy, but can activate on any attacking enemy in front of the player, not just the one currently targeted. When an attack is successfully parried, it will be completely avoided and none of its effects will proc.

The job trait Tactical Parry allows a successful parry to generate additional TP return for the player.
