AI parry heavy attacks??

Now AI can parry my heavy attacks?? It’s a bug or something working as intended?
This happened in the arena.
Mordo parried my heavy attacks while he’s doing the blocking stance. The opponent have stand your ground mastery. So he resist my heavy attack and parried me every time.
This happened to my alliance member as well.

    Working as intended. Anything that can be blocked can be parried. But that doesn't necessarily mean it will stun, just reduce damage taken. E.g parrying a special attack

    ya this happened to me in AW the other day... it’s only a bug if enough ppl complain otherwise it’s a lucrative enhancement.

    Oops didn't read properly. So he was already blocking when you did the heavy? The word 'parry' didn't show? Only 'resist'? Then it's probably a bug.
  • @TheSquish671, it shows “resist” and “parry” at the same time

    @TheSquish671, it shows “resist” and “parry” at the same time

    And they showed up while mordo was holding block? He wasn't just standing there and then blocking at the last second?

    Yep. Exactly how it happens.

    I thought I was crazy when I noticed this recently too. Obviously I have seen "RESIST" plenty of times due to the stand your ground mastery, but I don't understand why the AI can suddenly parry a heavy attack.

    Oh wait, it's because the AI cheats. That's what 75% of the threads in this forum are for.

    Cheating is NOT allowed around here... we prefer the term, "lucrative enhancements".

    Not a bug, perfect block+resist+parry=equals them being able to parry heavy attacks especially if they have high points in them

    SYG mastery

    If they have it maxed out, it's like a 55% chance to resist. If resisted by the AI with SYG and parry, it will result in a parry stun.

    It sounds like you were on the wrong end of RNG.
