This is a guide on Parrying for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn how to perform a Parry, and which characters can parry enemy attacks.
List of Contents
To perform a parry, lock on to an enemy (R Stick) and hold Guard (ZL Button). When an enemy is just about to attack, press the B Button to deflect it. The timing you need will differ among enemies so pay attention to their attack patterns.
For Guardians, try to stay at distance similar to the picture above and press B exactly when their lazer turns blue. You may want to use melee attacks first to cut off their legs and stop them from moving to get the distance right.
|Characters Who Can Parry|
For now, only Link, Urbosa, and Riju can parry enemy attacks as they are the only characters with shields. However, you can perform Perfect Dodges and Flurry Rushes with every character in the game.
We recommend Perfect Dodges for players with trouble getting the timing right for parrying. Perfect Dodges allow you to expose an enemies Weak-Point Gauge and let you Flurry Rush to deplete it. However, Flurry Rushes only grant the player a couple of strikes which may not always be enough to finish a Weak-Point Gauge.
Parrying doesn't put your enemy in a slowed-down state, so you're not locked in to using the same attack. Parrying affects your enemy in real time, which allows you to use whichever combo you want to completely obliterate your enemy's Weak-Point Gauge.
