Teehee i put shield bash on this with lightning infusion because its one of two shields that innately scale with dex.
Buckler Parry has very low stamina consumption
I don't see anyone mentioning this, but if your in the parry animation and you miss the window and get hit, you don't get knocked back, or knocked down.
So, Storm Wall only has 2 less start-up frames (at 60 fps), the same active parry frames, and the ability to be put on ANY shield.
So if you want to parry but don't want to use a Godrick Soldier Helm as your shield, you can pick up the ash of war right off the start
i never actually use this, i just put it in my off hand to scare the sh*t out of people in pvp.
If you put the "Parry" ash of war on daggers it has the same animation. I don't know if it has the same parry frames tho.
If they would make perry like in Ds3 it would be far more rewarding. I try to perry's my way through but not knowing the enemy on the 1st playthrough and its terrible hitbox or perry area is way too massed up to depend on it. A sheild is far more effective overall. Eldin Ring will never be a perry game. Its just there for cirtain situations.
First time I tried this I managed to parry the night knight and throw him off the horse, first I was like "woah" then I was like "welcome to a world of pain now"
goddamn i wish we could put this on other small shields, like the ice crest which looks way cooler than the buckler. i know that golden parry is better but it takes fp and it and carian retaliation are too far into the game imo.
does anyone know if you get less active frames if you dont meet the requirement?
Parrying is so worthless in this game, holy ****. So much risk for so little reward.
Literally the most broken OP skill in the game. Bosses and enemy just slump over after you parry them.
I don’t trust Gostoc. But this shop item making me consider it. Also please FS make a cooler looking small buckler
Is there any way to restore buckler parry after change ash of war on buckler?
This kills the Crucible Knight.
It's a great skill. You can switch to timing parries with the enemy's arm and/or body movement (watch the body for thrust attacks) instead of mastering knowing the timing between your animation and the exact point the enemy weapon would impact you. Waaaay easier parrying even for people like me who dramatically suck at it. It also tends to block attacks instead of letting you get hit if you mistime it, which is also a great aspect. Remember that bosses can be parried and you can upgrade the shield to reduce damage you take when you screw up the parry and end up blocking instead. I think a reason this shield gets seen a lot with people one-handing greatswords and curved greatswords is that they can use the big blade one-handed sweep to clear out mobs and can use the parry to kill strong targets. Or maybe parry, switch to two-hand, and then use a strong weapon art.
Hope we can find this as an ash of war, would love this on some of the other small shields
is there an Ashes of War for Buckler Parry? or is the wiki just referring to the regular Parry Ashes of War from the Warmaster?
Anyone using this. Is it better than the regular small shield parry? Is the timing different?
You can get the buckler ASAIK only from either the starting class or through the NPC gatekeeper gostoc shop/kill. He is the guy that let's you into the castle gate at Stormveil castle after the "first boss". Also can get
Does the Buckler actually need to be in your right hand to perform the skill?
