    Does parry work very well without a wep skill or wrestling? Anyone run it without wrestle? If so does it work well or should wrestle always be used with it? Also what about 120 eval with 100 anat?

    Thanks

    Now I havent played in a few months but parry never actually required weapon skill.

    You do need wrestling or a shield or a weapon to utilise it though.

    It is a flat block chance based on your parry chance. So after the game rolls to see if your opponent hit you, it then sees if your parry blocks it.

    Its like a safety in football.

    However, the chance it offords you ist that great (25%? I have to check my source, its been a while)

    Having a weapon skill vs a weapon skill (without mods such as HCI OR DCI) gives them a 50% miss chance as your skills are equal.

    So obviously its best to take both, that way they have a 50% chance to hit you THEN you have like a 25% chance to block that resulting hit.

    *EDIT* its up to a 30% chance, as long as you have 80 dex, believe it or not the stratics parry formula actually works, or it did just a few months ago.

    Also I wouldnt sweat the 80 dex too much, its only a 3% decrease per 10 pts below 80 so 60 dex still gives 24%

    I'm pretty sure most mages run parry without wrestle substititing 120 eval and gm anatomy since you save 20 skills points just can't use wrestling special moves

    Oh thanks I almost forgot.

    It does indeed work with defensive wrestling, which I always liked once special moves were nerfed since you couldnt pack HCI on a mage and even then you swung really slow.

    However with the current gear today I bet you could get your dex up there and put some HCI on and have a shot at wrestling but I still wouldnt.

    I hate wrestle disarm/stun; by the time I get one off I am damn near dead or could have cast multiple spells. I never have ran it with max HCI tho.
