Final Fantasy 16: How To Parry Successfully


As a Shield of Rosaria trainee, Clive wields a one-handed sword, leaving his off-hand free for using magic in combat. While this unique style limits his defensive options without a shield, it adds to Final Fantasy 16’s distinctive combat system.

Though an eventual black ability is added to your arsenal, it’s crucial to make the most out of dodging and parrying throughout the game to avoid damage. Dodging is a more straightforward option, but parrying is worth the added risk and difficulty.

How to Parry


Clive Parrying And Enemy In Combat

Parrying is executed when Clive’s attack and his enemy’s attack happen simultaneously and bounce off each other. To successfully parry, you must time your basic attack with the enemy’s and ensure that the weapons meet in the middle. The exact parry window varies from enemy to enemy but can be quick and challenging to land. To parry as often as possible, watch your enemies wind up and attack at the same time.

Observe an enemy’s attacks carefully, waiting for your opportunity. It’s also important to know the speed of Clive’s first attack in his combo, as it is his quickest and easiest to land a parry with. Often, when spamming the attack button, you’ll get random parries, providing an additional bonus to utilizing your basic attack. However, you can only parry human-sized enemies and smaller. Larger enemies that fight with big weapons can quickly attack through Clive’s sword.

Why Should You Parry?

Parrying is riskier than dodging, as it leaves Clive in the enemy’s path of attack if mistimed. Missing a parry will still have you hitting the enemy, but they will also hit you. However, landing a successful parry will temporarily freeze time, allowing you a few seconds to land some attacks or charge up a more powerful one. Your first attack after a parry will grant you more mobility in lunging at the enemy and dealing much more damage than usual. Getting a perfect dodge has a similar effect, but a good parry is your best answer.
