Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Achievements

Foiled Again!

Parry 100 times.  

To parry attacks you must have a shield equipped, then press and hold just as the enemy is about to hit you. You will know if you timed it correctly when the game slows down for about a half a second and the enemy is knocked backwards. It is important to note that you do not take damage from a proper execution of the parry defense, and thus you can farm parries on one enemy if you prefer a different style of combat. Simply repeat it 100 times for the achievement.

Doing this will come with Riposte, and parrying in this game seemed fairly forgiving and simple so it shouldn't be very difficult at all.

I hate these type of achievements, but from what I remember of the demo, this was pretty easy.

It is when an enemy is just about to attack you and you block just before he does. If you get it right time should kinda slow down slightly and it will look like your character charges forward a step. Its pretty easy and can be done multiple times on enemies. Hope this helps.

This one took me awhile because I used a group of 3 wolves and they kept killing themselves running into my shield. I had to find a couple groups... pretty funny actually.

Easiest to get with enemies using swords, get about 10 parries per enemy.

Question: If you get a few parries and reload & then repeat will they still count toward the achievment?

Wolves and Red Legion soldiers work great!
