Learn How to Parry
Assassin's Creed Valhalla puts a lot of emphasis on parries so it is essential that you become proficient at it in order to increase your chances of defeating your foe in combat by being able to stop their incoming attacks.
To parry, press the block button L1 (PlayStation) or LB button (Xbox). When you hold the button you will perform a block, tapping if for a moment will parry the attack. Timing is important when you parry as there is a short time window of about 1 second when the move can be performed. If you hit the parry button as soon as the enemy is starting their attack you will successfully parry the attack most of the time. It is important to remember Perilous Attacks (Red Rune Attacks) cannot be blocked or parried and must instead be dodged.
