How to Parry?

In order to parry an enemy's attack, you simply need to press L1 before an attack hits you. Doing this will give you a variety of openings to attack the enemy while they're off balance.

Keep in mind that not all attacks can be parried. If the enemy's weapons starts to show an orange light, this means that the attack is unblockable and must be dodged. These kinds of attacks cannot be parried, but upgrading your Samurai Techniques will allow you to parry some of them.

The Perfect Parry is the first skill you can get in the Deflection Tree of the Samurai Techniques. In order to attempt a Perfect Parry, you need to unlock the Perfect Parry skill and then press L1 during the last frames of an enemy's attack. This means that you have to block right before you take damage from the attack.

With this skill, it Perfect Parries can also be performed.
