    I'm a 120 macer with bushido and used to wield a war hammer for both parrying and whirlwind.

    Now I read bushido only works with... a sword!

    I'm a bit lost here, this could explain why I can't melee a hiryu, for example, I get destroyed in a matter of seconds.

    The information I could gather so far is unclear, i'd like to be enlightened.

    1° Can I parry with bushido and maces?
    2° Can I parry with bushido and a one handed sword (hand free for pots)?
    3° What is the benefit of parrying with bushido and a dual-handed sword compared to a single handed?

    If i'm beating a dead horse, feel free to point me to a relevant link :)

    You can parry with any weapon. With 2H weapon chance to block slightly higher - 40% vs 35% with 120/120.

    P.S. You can't parry with balanced weapon.

    You chose the wrong foe, really!

    The hiryu has strong base damage and a powerful shred armor ability... so it destroyes melee user if you stand to it toe to toe.... :D
