    Parry will work as long as you have skill points in it.

    Work with archery? Well, you can't hold a shield with a bow.

    Edit: In other words, there are a lot more useful skills to add in place of parry. I don't know much about blocking with two-handed weapons but I think a while ago that made it possible to do that. I don't think it works very good though in the long run.

    But, if you had bushido along with parry, wouldnt you get a benegit since archery requires a two handed weapon?

    Parry and archery do not work together. Bows even though they are 2 handed will not work with parry as would say a 2 handed mace, or swords weapon.

    This.. Archery absolutely does not work with parry in any way.

    And if it does it will be utterly ********. Might as well remove all melee weapon skill now.
