    If you're primary PvMing, I recommend that you drop parry and add bushido.

    Bushido has advantages outside of parry--most importantly, perfection and confidence. Plus, you suffer a penalty for holding a shield with a throwing weapon, which precludes the choice of parry. Although the devs say that this penalty is mitigated by the parry skill, my experience tells me differently. If you're forced to chose between parry and bushido, I'd go with bushido.

    Keep in mind that this is just one guy's opinion.
     
  5. I want the bushido but under the discription for confidence it say puts you in defensive stance and allows you to gain stamina and health each time you parry.?

    It's not dependent on parry, despite what the description says. Get yourself damaged, then run away and use confidence. You'll see a marked difference in your HR, even though you're not parrying.
