So with the new Grail Knight class probably many of you, myself included were wondering how to complete the challenge for that sweet red Bretonnian Longsword skin. I managed to do it quite quickly and decided to share my observations and tips with everyone who is still struggling to get it.
If you don’t have any friends to help you and you have to rely on bots I suggest you equip them with blacksmith gear that gives 5 power so they won’t kill the boss before you manage to parry him 3 times.
What you need to do is charge your heavy attack (you’ll see your stamina shields pop up), hold it while the boss attacks you,
and then release it to deal damage to the boss. Edit: So apparently as u/TheRealMemeDream pointed out you don’t even need to damage the boss with riposte and it’s enough to simply block its attacks with your “heavy attack” charge.
I’ve done it on recruit difficulty on “Against the grain” map.
Run through the map untill you reach the barn section where you need to find the key- clear out the mob and when you’re certain nothing is going to interrupt you simply start the encounter. Your best bet would be the chaos spawn since its chain attacks can be blocked- thus parried and won’t damage you through block. What you want to do here is block (charging the heavy attack) the whole chain of 3-4 attacks
and then release your attack after the last hit in the combo– this way you won’t get damaged. After this attack combo the Spawn will probably try to grab you- simply step back to avoid getting hit and it should use the chain attack again- repeat this 3 times and then when you’re certain you’ve blocked at least 3 hits you can finish the boss with your career skill. It should pop up in the chat if you’ve succeeded, if not it means you have to try again.
It surely can be done with different bosses and maps, but if you want to “farm” it, its probably the fastest and easiest way to do it.
PS. These are all suggestions other people posted on this subreddit. I just wanted to write them down in a single post as a heads up that they do indeed work!
