What Is Parry In Lies of P?
Parrying is an important skill that helps to block enemy attacks in Lies of P.
To put it in very simple words, parry skills help to block and defend your character and give you extra time.
Lies of P contains more than 20 fierce bosses who are hard to fight.
Therefore, perfecting your parrying skills might help you win battles.
However, parrying the enemy in Lies of P is unlike other games like Dark Souls and Elden Rings.
In addition, parrying in Lies of P is trickier than you think.
You need to be precise about the timing of your parry and attack to stagger the enemy.
Only after you stagger the enemy you can perform a fatal attack to defeat them.
Also, all the bosses in Lies of P have different fighting styles and skills.
So, parry timing on one boss may not work on another boss.
What Is Perfect Guard Skills?
Perfect Guard skills are the perfect parry timing skills to block an attack.
You must block just as the enemy attacks you to perform the perfect guard.
In addition, you can practice your guard skills on non-playable characters.
For example, when you encounter your first boss, the Parade Master, you’ll also encounter a Training Dummy.
So, you can practice your guard skills with the Training Dummy.
Furthermore, you cannot perfect your guard skills without experimenting and jumping into battles.
So you might die many times before you perfect your skills.
However, the end result will definitely be fruitful.
