I've always been told that skilling up parrying was hard, but what you have to go through to get even an 0.1 is absurd. I got some eva- and parry+ gear and go out to the boyhada tree to solo/duo Korrigan and I watch my chat log for parry skillups. 4 to 6 times per battle I get the message "Player X parries Monster Y's attack with equppied weapon" so i know i'm parrying, but I never seem to get any skillups(mayboe 0.1 to 0.3 every few hours). I get more sheild skillups ironically but my parrying is 173 before equipment, which is the same as a level 54 player, but when I parry a level 75+ monsters attack I get nothing. If I sucessfully check a skill against a monster 20+ higher than my skill level, then I should be rewarded accordingly. I even tried this on all phases of the moon I could do it all day and be lucky to get half a skill point. None of the other skills are like this, even Enhancing Magic wasn't this bad. Can in the next update increase the skillup rate of defensive skills? The proc rate of parrying/guarding/sheild isn't that bad, it's just that they go up like once a month and it seem a lot of work to get little in return.
