If you dont use a shield you still should be still able to get Parry AC bonus. However it is the Full Plates ACP that reduces it's usefullness, if i recall well you would start with a -8 parry. If you are also using 2handed weapons improved parry is also a requirement (which also adds +4 to parry) so technically you should be able to get bonuses from parry just....troublesome with FP-s.

Some RP items act as shields, even though you can't cast spells on them, so there's no parry bonus.  I tested it on a rebuild and it was a definite no go.

I would love to see a fix for this, but I doubt very many people are as masochistic as I am.

You should take conversation about that on the thread about the Upcoming revision of the parry system to include shields. ;)

This thread as more or less served its purpose already.
