Rorie, for the love of god, just stop moving, hold block, and actually look at what the enemy is doing.I promise, when you're not splitting your attention trying to run around and dodge and mash attack constantly it's pretty easy to figure out what different attacks look like. You don't even really need to know the timing, you can mash block and figure it out that way. Worst case is you end up blocking the attack instead of parrying, which is a thousand times better than getting hit because you committed to a dodge or a jump, both of which leave you super, super vulnerable.Just sit right in front of them and hold block for a while and figure out what they do, then, when you feel like you have a good idea of the timing of their attacks, start trying to guess when to parry. With that strategy, especially with the early game enemies, worst case is you have to back off for a bit and recover your posture. But even then, the fastest way to recover posture is by holding block. It's almost like they designed it that way for a reason!By all means, of course, make it easier if that's more fun for you but holy hell, I just had to get this off my chest because no one was actually helping him. The slowmo stuff actually seems like a good way to learn an enemy's moves if you're having trouble... but it won't help if you still aren't actually watching what they're doing.
