Staff Parry

The user deflects an incoming attack using a staff weapon. Contrary to the intuition that staff weapons should be heavy and unwieldy due to their size, staffs are actually quite quick and versatile thanks to the balanced and leverable holding position with which they are typically used. A skilled and experienced user of a staff can defend very effectively against simple attacks with minimal effort.

Note that this defense is for use against attacks that could also reasonably be stopped by a regular weapon block, like focused blows or projectiles that come in one or two at a time. It cannot be used to deal with a hail of needles, a wave of mud, etc. Also, the non-solid types — chakra, fire, water, wind, lightning, and acid — are included in the damage types of this defense ONLY to prevent partial damage when deflecting an attack which has that as a secondary type, for example a kunai imbued with an element. Thus, Staff Parry cannot be used to defend against attacks that cannot be deflected, i.e. a fireball, or which would reasonably cause partial damage, i.e. a lightning kunai if your staff is made of metal.
