Parry chance forumla

    Does anyone know the formula used for calculating your chance to parry (using Bushido - assume 120 skill) with a 1 handed wep? I will be going to 120 parry i think and will aim to max out my DCI/HCI but is DCI factored into the calculation to parry? if so what chance of parry will i have for example if i have 120 parry and am fighting a char with 120 melee skill (considering we will both most likely be maxed out on HCI/DCI)

    Thank you

    Could be wrong and very outdated but I though without a shield your parry is effectively halved. So with no shield at 120 parry, will parry as if you had 60 parry? Was a while back I read that, so like I said could be outdated.

    Thats very simplified, the person in question is using bushido which increases the Defence chance with a one handed weap and no shield...however i would be interested in finding a calculator for that

    Heres the "Chance to Block Calculator" and the formulas
    Blocking with a shield:
    % Chance = (Parrying - Bushido) / 4 (If less than 0, the chance is 0)
    (Add 5% if Parrying or Bushido skill is 100 or above)

    Blocking with a 1-handed weapon (without a shield):
    New = (Parrying * 10) * (Bushido * 10) / 48000 (Add 5% if Parrying or Bushido skill is 100 or above)
    Legacy = (Parrying * 10) / 80 (Add 5% if Parrying skill if 100 or above)
    % Chance = Whichever is highest of the New and the Legacy formula.

    Blocking with a 2-handed weapon:
    New = (Parrying * 10) * (Bushido * 10) / 41140 (Add 5% if Parrying or Bushido skill is 100 or above)
    Legacy = (Parrying * 10) / 80 (Add 5% if Parrying skill if 100 or above)
    % Chance = Whichever is highest of the New and the Legacy formula.

    Dexterity Modifier if dex is less than 80*: (80 - Dexterity) / 100 (If Dexterity is higher than 80, the modifier is 0)
    Final % Chance of blocking = Base Chance * (1 - Dexterity Modifier)

    Savage is correct, just some examples for you guys

    120 parry with a shield=35% block
    120 parry with a weapon=20% block
    120 parry with 120 bush and one handed weapon 35%
    120 parry with 120 bush and two handed weapon 40%

    You lose about 3% per 10 points of dex before 80.

    Iv ran parry and or bushido for along time, though those formulas are old, they seem to add up, also I believe they have been varified by the devs a while back.

    so this means if you have 120 parry and 120 bushido the chance is 0?
    (120-120)/4 = 0
    that formula doesnt look right

    No its correct, you get 5% for bushido or parry being above 100 but thats it.

    You can't parry with a shield when you have bushido, samurais don't use shields.
