Suggestion for upcoming beta - make parry block enemy arrows

As a suggestion for the upcoming beta to any devs who read this stuff, try experimenting with using parry as a means of blocking Ungor archers’ projectiles. I think this could work because

  1. It would give new utility to one of the existing traits

  2. It would provide another reason to use something other than the swift slaying meta

  3. It would make me feel like Geralt of Rivia, smacking arrows out of the air

Sounds awesome though it would make shields even more useless which would be a shame… But I’m bit biased here so take that for what it’s worth x)

Well, not really - remember, that as a shield user, you would still be able to take swift slaying, while parry users would be stuck without the single most useful trait in game.

Hmm… shield with swift slaying. It’s like wheels from Formula 1 racing car on tractor.

Yup :slight_smile: But hey, it kinda cn work

I think shields could make a comeback if the archers’ attacks did a LOT of damage. Shields would have to protect your allies too though, none of that overhead phasing through you into the guy behind you BS. If having a shield up in the correct angle blocked 100% of the arrows, that would still make it better than parry which only has a brief window of blocking them, still requiring you to dodge. I don’t think I’ll use shield weapons no matter what they do, but that’s a personal preference.
