Parry is the primary defense skill of almost all characters in Avendar, and its success rate is higher than that of dodge. Staffs, spears and polearms are the most effective weapons to parry with, followed by swords. Axes, daggers, flails and whips, in turn, are the least effective. Gladiators wielding exotic weapons parry more often than other classes using them do.

Higher percentages in weapon skills, such as sword or hand to hand, improve the likelihood of parrying those sorts of attacks. Dual wielding weapons other than swords reduces the chance of parrying. When not wielding a weapon, parry reduces the damage taken from melee combat.

Fighters gain a bonus to parry as a class feature. Swordmasters parry more effectively with swords than other classes.
