Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is not an easy game and some would even say that it is tougher than Sekiro and Nioh. If you want to increase your chance of survival and get good then you need to know how to parry enemy attacks. In this Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty guide, we go over how you can parry, counter-attack, and parry critical attacks.
How To Parry Enemy Attacks
Regular enemy attacks can be parried by pressing the B (Xbox) or Circle (PS) button before you get hit. Timing is going to be important here. Note that critical attacks cannot be parried this way. You will know when an enemy is about to hit you with a critical attack when they glow red. To parry these attacks you need to press RT+B (Xbox) or R2+O (PS). Again, this needs to be performed before getting hit not when you see the red prompt.
How To Counter-Attack
Not only can you parry incoming attacks but you can counterattack with powerful moves of your own. You can do this by pressing RB+B (Xbox) or R1+O (PS) right before getting hit. Counter-attacks are devastating moves and can deal a lot of damage. So use them to your advantage.
This is how you can parry normal enemy attacks and critical hits as well as counter-attack in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. If you are interested in learning more then you can check out our guide on how you can backstab or critical hit enemies.
