||Parry Skill Training
Parrying is used to completely block melee blows or archery shots from opponents. In usual practise you must equip a Shield in order to parry - Which type doesn't make a difference (unless the item has an additionally listed Defense Chance Increase bonus). On UO Stones the Parry skill has now been changed when wearing a shield you will now receive damage decreases with a block and damage dodge chance and same goes for when holding two handed items so parry is now usable and viable with all items!
If you fail to parry, a shield offers no protection aside from any Item Properties it might have displayed (such as Resistances).
As a character gains in Parry as well as Bushido, the system changes somewhat: Your chance to block with a shield falls, and instead you gain the ability to parry with a sword. An additional bonus is granted if the weapon is double handed.Training:
- 1 - 40 (Optional): You can buy up to 40 skill at the trainer in New Haven.
- 40 - 120: Equip a shield and get into melee range of a training rat. You can start at 0 if you wish to save a little gold.
