Playable characters can not parry attacks by default. The only way for them to be able to parry is by equipping the Jade Collar accessory, which provides 30% parry to physical attack. To counter the enemy parries, the player may opt to equip the Cameo Belt accessory. The accessory completely ignores the enemy's chance to block and parry attacks, making it especially useful against Judges. Enemies can not parry attacks from Guns, Measures, and Crossbows although the attacks from the latter two can still miss under certain conditions.
Anticipation is a Role Action learned by all Tanks at Level 24. It increases the user's parry rate by 30% for 20 seconds. It has an instant cast time and an independent recast time of 60 seconds.
