Taking on enemies in Dark Souls III can be a pretty daunting thing. Even the most common enemies can cause problems for those who aren’t well enough equipped to take on their adventure. Therefore, it’s always important to be able to take a defensive approach to combat, as well as knowing when to deal heavy blows. Here’s how to parry effectively in Dark Souls III to leave your enemies vulnerable.
First thing’s first, you’ll need the right equipment. You’ll need to check first to make sure that whatever shield or weapon you have equipped is capable of parrying. This can be done by accessing the equipment screen and selecting your item. If the item is capable of parrying, it will simply say “Parry” on the item’s description screen.
