      Did some testing on projectiles. Can confirm it does not work against Radahn’s magic arrows, however interestingly enough if you time it just right you DO get a partial parry against his magic arrows. I survived a few arrows by partial parrying on a 14 vigor character.

        I did some testing with the Cleanrot Knight in front of Elphael, and I'm pretty sure this has the best close-up parry hitbox in the game. I baited out a specific attack where she slashes upwards with her sword and goes into a very high overhead thrust. Regular parry, Golden Parry, Buckler and even Carian Retaliation whiffed the parry a lot of the time, whereas this always connected. And I don't mean I took damage. No, the spear straight up went over my character and the parry sometimes.

        Also, hitboxes in Elden Ring tend to be rather accurate to their visuals, and this has by far the largest vertical effect. So I think that might be why it has a little worse frame data.

          Best parry option for fire-infused shields. Cannot use Golden Parry or Carian Retaliation with a fire infusion.

            Has anyone datamined parry hitboxes? It might be placebo, but this feels way more reliable than most other parries, and I suspect it's because the wind effect actually extends the parry hitbox, just as holy parry's golden swoosh extends it forward. Wider parry box = more leeway to catch an attack hitbox. Either way, if you want to get into parrying, don't sleep on experimenting with all the special parry skills.

              So, this is pretty much for small shield. Because, why the in world would you want to put this AoW on medium shield anyway ?
