    If you have bushido, you should not wear a shield.
     
  3. Unless you're training, in which case the opposite would be true.

    Or unless you have 0 parry, then it makes no difference except you have to unequip it to drink potions.

    Connor, Ender, seriously? He specifically said in his post:

    He has 120 bush/parry. Accordingly, I seriously doubt that he is 1) training bush/parry or 2) has 0 parry. Neither of your comments was in the least bit helpful.

    Shesh, I feel like you guys are contrary just for the sake of being contrary. :thumbdown:
     
  6. His question got answered, AND he got additional information that he may not have known in the bargain. Sounds like a win-win to me. :thumbsup:

    Use two-handed weapons so that you get the full benefit's of parry. Otherwise you're penalized a tad.

    If you wear a shield with 120 Bushido and 120 Parrying, your block chance will go in the toilet. You can find the block chance calculations, based on your skills here: Parrying.
