This is a guide on how to parry in Valheim. Learn the meaning of the Parry Force and Parry Bonus stats, and how to block and parry enemies' attacks effectively.
List of Contents
In order to parry an enemy's attack, you will need to block right before an enemy's attack lands. When an enemy is charging its attack, hold the right mouse button to block. If you've timed the parry correctly, you'll hear a clanging sound and the enemy will bounce backwards and be temporarily stunned.
Since there's no time limit, it's possible to spam the block button when aiming for a parry to get the right timing.
After parrying an enemy's attack, hitting it again will deal extra damage, known as the Parry Bonus. You'll know you've achieved the Parry Bonus when you hear another clanging sound on hitting the enemy.
Parry Force and Parry Bonus are two stats which determine the effectiveness of your weapons in parrying enemies' attacks.
The Parry Force of a weapon will determine how strongly the enemy will be repelled on a successful parry. A weapon with a high Parry Force will send enemies flying back.
The Parry Bonus of a weapon determines the bonus to damage dealt when dealing a blow to an enemy stunned by a parry. After parrying, players can switch to a weapon with a high Parry Bonus to deliver the killing blow.
Different weapon types have different tendencies for Parry Force and Parry Bonus, so be sure to check these stats when evaluating which weapons to craft.
Axes tend to have an even distribution of Parry Force to Parry Bonus, while Knives have a low Parry Force, but a high Parry Bonus. Try to parry with a weapon with a high Parry Force, then carrying out the following attack with a weapon with a high Parry Bonus.
|Example Weapon||Parry Force||Parry Bonus|
It can be tough to get the timing of the parry down if you don't pay attention to the enemy. Bad timing can lead you just blocking instead of parrying. One way to help perfect your timing is to watch the animations of the enemy. Before they attack they will usually do a wind up animation that signals when they are about to attack. The timing of their wind up animation to their attack animation is always going to be the same, after getting the timing down, all you will need to practice is consistency!

Soap most likely originated from when people cooked food on a spit and the fat dripped on to the white ash in the fire and when combined with water it made a lather. Adding soap could introduce hygiene factors into the game. They could introduce it similar to how the hunger works, like, the better your hygiene, the more health/stamina you can gain. Making soap could consist of cooking meat over the spit, the fat mixing with ash and then mixing it with water could give you soap.
