    What is min dex/skill needed to be effective as a parry mage?If i had bushido(50-60ish) could i run with wrestling as well?

    Thank you..........

    Min Dex for parry to be affective is 80.
    100 Parry is ok.
    50-60 Bushido will bring your parry chance way down and will make you not parry at all with a shield.
    Stratics has a cool calculator called combat under the Combat related section.

    How about both parry and wrestling? Does that help or is it just a waste of points?

    i prefer wrestling over anat. Your gettign your dex to atleast 80 you can sling out some disarms and stun punches with 80 dex. Granted it takes work to use specials with dumps.
