I made a new character and am trying to work up parry. Character is elf, 0 skill in swords, 51.4 parry, 0 Bushido. I have 9 sheep on me. My past experience tells me gains will come quickest with a 1 handed weapon I'm not proficient with. It isn't working. I tried it with a 2 handed wep I'm not proficient with, not working. I have tried with a non-proficient wep and sheild. Not working. I tried it just shield and wrestle, not working. Anyone else having problems with this recently?
