And the minotaur combo is parry+square+square+L+triangle+hold triangle+in the air square+square+grapple=enjoy i did it in last night not easy to pull off but reward is good and well deserved because its not easy.
Theres only a few swords that launch you, the rest being a quick AoE attack which in fact is parryable.
The ones that do launch you, are vertical swings which are easily dodged.
You dont even have to parry it..just block it.
Every sword can launch with a jump+tri, and you don't even need a traditional launch to start juggle combos. A parry, counter hit, or even breaking someones block will get your combo started.
