Parrying is a critical defensive technique for EVE. Unlike dodging, which may put you at a disadvantage, parrying provides a safer and more reliable means to deflect enemy attacks. One big advantage to performing the Perfect Parry is Retribution, which an opportunity to perform a quick follow-up attack that deals a lot of damage (usually killing lesser mobs).

EVE can acquire the Perfect Parry skill at any Supply Camp within the game by accessing the Skill Settings kiosk. This skill is part of the Survival skill tree, positioned at the top-most branch, which also leads to advanced counter-attacking abilities crucial for later stages of the game. Training and refining this skill in a virtual reality (VR) setting within these camps offers a risk-free environment to practice, ensuring players can perfect their timing without the immediate threats of combat.
