Parry and riposte

Can we parry heavy weapon and boss attack?

I dont have this game and I believe i'm at the lower end of those "informed" but I don't think you can parry boss attacks in this game.

Nope.

If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.

If you yourself don't think you can physically parry the opponent's attack, then don't try it, it'll just lead to a faster death.

I know for a fact that you can actually parry and riposte most of the final boss's attacks quite easily (if you're good at that sort of thing, anyway.) I haven't seen anyone attempt to parry other bosses, however. Not sure about heavy weapons either.

Don't try to parry 'feral' monsters like rats, and hounds, but you can parry monsters that show intelligence and use a weapon... Most of the time. The only boss I've heard can be parried is the final boss. But I'm pretty sure you can parry the goblin boss as well, I need to test that though.

I can't seems to parry any black knight attack.
Are they like un-parry-able or something?

They have a very very tiny window that you can parry properly. and some weapons are harder to parry than others. Spears for example take more finesse because of the much smaller window.

I can parry spear quite easy but not great sword.
