Dark Souls 2: Parrying Guide #2 (Spell Parrying, Setup Parrying, and Advanced Techniques)

Dark Souls 2: Parrying Guide #2 (Spell Parrying, Setup Parrying, and Advanced Techniques)

Last updated on September 1st, 2017

In this video I cover; basic spell parrying, more setup parry, parrying lances and reapers, parrying with 2H shield and rapiers, and some more info about parrying in general.

Also, I share 2 advanced parrying techniques that I have found to be very useful.


*NOTE:  Even though the parrying player cannot see the spells getting deflected from the shield, it will show up on the casting player’s screen*

    Both video’s were great. A must watch for anyone trying to get better at the parry. Think you for the time and effort you and your sparring partner put in to make both video’s. :thumbs up:

    I wathced these… for some reason i still cant land a parry no matter what i do… is there a stat to help this? I havent tried EXTENSIVELY but i just cant hit it pvp – and as a test i went to LOLG with the hollows with knives, and my parry dagger, and tried EVERY timing imaginable, didnt hit once.

    Thank you everyone for watching and for the nice feedback :)
    it’s awesome to hear so many people found these guides helpful~


    There is no stat that affects parrying as far as I know, some speculated that ADP would affect it, but after dropping my ADP to 4 I didn’t see any difference compared to the timing in 25 ADP.
    These timings I show on the videos have been pretty damn solid for me, so I think only thing that could affect it is that your timing is still a bit off, or there is lag that affects it.
    Parrying is kind of riding a bicycle: once you get it right you get more comfortable with it :)

    This has been a popular series. Good response on Twitter: Check out @DarkSoulsSpace’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/DarkSoulsSpace/status/460844723138486272

    It’s a bit less visibly used of a mechanic now but still had its merits. Nice series and thanks for sharing it on the blog.

    If you can get close and reposte really fast then you do the fairs break one. It does more damage too if I remember right. It’s tough to do reliably though a d if you mess up the timing you end up doing a normal attack
