What is Parrying?

A Countermove

Dark Alliance - Parry
Parry is used to deflecting your opponent's attack. It is similar to blocking, but with Parry, your character restores its stamina. While blocking an attack consumes stamina.

Benefits of Parrying

Know When to Parry

A successful Parry needs a lot of practice as getting the perfect timing is a bit challenging. Good thing there's an indicator that will help you determine if a monster is about to attack you.

When an arrow pointing at you is in the color yellow, it means a monster is about to attack you. Look for that monster and wait for the arrow to turn color red. When the arrow turns red, it is the perfect time to use the Parry and Block. Get ready to press the L1 (Block Button) and wait till the monster's attack lands on you.
