    Why thank you Wisp silly May I say that build seems very interesting... I would probably throw this as a twist on there: http://tinyurl.com/9x6agfy

    I like the rapier when it comes to RTSr status just due to the fact that its dash attack hits like a truck and it will come in handy at points where you don't want to be hit silly

    PW+Rtsr is monstrous, my god. It just didn't hit home for me until I saw the Falchion do 600 a hit and the Mura hit for 1100+ with a dash attack.

    I'm completely comfortable playing against GS/UGS users with zero poise because of toggle escape. However, dex players still give me a hard time when I'm playing below the dex weapon breakpoint. Not to mention Great Combustion has this amorphous/"could be anywhere" hitbox that makes it difficult to dodge with fastroll sometimes, so that usually effs me up also.

    If everyone had 0 poise, the easiest way to win a PvP match is if you land the first hit.

    no stunlock is avoidable and you can get out of it and I kill gankers all day with 0 poise so very viable

    It depends in the weapon you are using. The smaller the weapon, the less poise you need. Not counting if you want to R1 spam a dagger or curved sword. My rapier builds usually have small poise, because I don't rely on bs.

    My reaction at around 2:20, heal... heal... may b he heals now... winking

    0 poise is absolutely viable! It takes some time to get used to and you have to change your playstyle a bit, but once you get used to it, it's not that big of a deal anymore.
    Actually I would suggest everyone to try week or two with 0 poise because it is great training too and you feel like f*cking superman when you put on armor again (or poise again) big grin

    Edit: Keep in mind though that Armor of thorns can have a nasty suprise for you

    Okay I'm done laughing now!!

    Well zero poise is viable for sure...however I prefer 18 poise to not stagger from throwing knifes(that's embarrassing) daggers, rapiers, and that dreaded Kirks you all know I love to wear!

    If I'm going to go 0 poise I tend to prefer going dragon style....sure you have no defense or amour rating...but you can deal some pretty stupid dmg...my best single attack was RTSR/Roar/Leo counter with a BSS for 1150 dmg :affraid:

    Spears and rapiers are really the bane of 0 poise. I have no problem rolling with low poise, like 16-18, but I'm not super comfortable getting stunlocked by everything, and I hate getting interrupted by the thorn armor.

    Playing with zero poise can be useful you get hit with agreat sword it knocks you down whereas if you have high poise you stand and take the hit medium you stagger
