    Good job! :D It's a real nice feelin' when you dodge something difficult using a less popular tactic. It's like a big "Eff you Fast Roll!" moment XD.

    The worst part is that you don't need the DLC to have to deal with this bs, you just need an invader with the DLC.

    Wonderful, though i'm not getting back into dark souls till i get the DLC when I start a fresh character so shouldn't be an issue happy

    Still unsure what build to go as though..

    Not to steal your thunder OP, but I have to do this all the time and the sad fact is that it doesn't matter if you got fast or midroll when rolling through pursuers it's the amount of lag that matters, although I admit that dodging the pursuers + dark bead combo with midroll is hell.
    Congratulations anyway

    Juutas has it spot on. LAG. LAG is the downfal. When i've got a good flow going i can dodge them with midroll pretty well. But when you get lagged...its worthless. Even the almighty ninja flip can't outdo lag. Betters odds sure, but...lag wins. I am adjusting to this darkmagic, but honestly not seeing it a whole lot. (Knocks on wood frantically)

    I'm pretty sure that everything, and not just dodging one particular spell is made inherently worse by lag..

    But sword swings don't follow you around.

    The guy swinging the sword does though, and from what i've heard moves a damn slight quicker than the spell

    I think it's a combination of excessive lag effect and poor spell design. There is something about DB/pursuers that magnifies the effect of lag, probably the fact there are multiple projectiles involved. You have to time your evasions perfectly without any reliable visual references thanks to the lag, and even a single wrong guess is OHKO.

    Just to put this in perspective, there are several invaders in Anor Londo I know by name who are better PvPers than me. In a straight melee match, I'd win maybe 20%. Since my mage build got the DLC spells, I've killed them every time, effortlessly, whenever I run into them. It's not even fun, it's boring. I ended up sending an apology to one guy without being prompted, it was so lopsided. It's not that they're bad at the game or I'm some amazing mage, it's the spells.
