    Does Parry calculate into the Defense Chance %'s?

    No it doesn't. DCI figures into the initial change to hit calculation. If the hit was successful, then Parry comes into play. You only parry blows that would have otherwise hit you.

    Hit Chance% = ( ( [Attacker's Combat Ability + 20] * [100% + Attacker's Hit Chance Increase] ) divided by
    ( [Defender's Combat Ability + 20] * [100% + Defender's Defense Chance Increase] * 2 ) ) * 100
    Minimum hit Chance% is 2% at all times.

    If they hit you (based on the above formula), then your chance to block with parry is as follows:
    Blocking with a shield:
    % Chance = (Parrying - Bushido) / 4 (If less than 0, the chance is 0)
    (Add 5% if Parrying or Bushido skill is 100 or above)

    Blocking with a 1-handed weapon (without a shield):
    New = (Parrying * 10) * (Bushido * 10) / 48000 (Add 5% if Parrying or Bushido skill is 100 or above)
    Legacy = (Parrying * 10) / 80 (Add 5% if Parrying skill if 100 or above)
    % Chance = Whichever is highest of the New and the Legacy formula.

    Blocking with a 2-handed weapon:
    New = (Parrying * 10) * (Bushido * 10) / 41140 (Add 5% if Parrying or Bushido skill is 100 or above)
    Legacy = (Parrying * 10) / 80 (Add 5% if Parrying skill if 100 or above)
    % Chance = Whichever is highest of the New and the Legacy formula.

    Dexterity Modifier if dex is less than 80*: (80 - Dexterity) / 100 (If Dexterity is higher than 80, the modifier is 0)
    Final % Chance of blocking = Base Chance * (1 - Dexterity Modifier)
