    I've been using a the Rapier and the Estoc almost exclusively for months now and I only have trouble with Katanas and Curved swords, mostly because of the stun lock if I miss my parry.

    By the way, what are your counters to Thrusting swords? I haven't fought enough to really know, but the small number of the rapier vs rapier matches I've had have been some of the most fun I've ever had.
    Smart spear users use the mlbh. If you don't dodge, you take damage. HCSM, DB or CSS will also put a damper on the scythe running r1, which is irritating.

    there aren't many weapons that make me groan when i encounter them in PVP. it's when i encounter certain weapons combined with certain tactics that really makes my teeth grind.

    the worst is when i see a Dragon Slayer Spear or Silver Knight Spear, because invariably the player will be roll poking their way through the entire bout. which is both annoying and extremely effective. not because i can't avoid being hit, but because i just can't seem to hit them and i always lose my patience.

    the next would be rapier class weapons, because i know that they will be endlessly fishing for those hornet ring backstabs and parries. not as effective as roll pokers, but just as frustrating to fight against. besides, losing to a laggy backstab really gets my hackles up (doesn't happen every time, but when it does…grrrrrr).

    that phantom range on the rolling R1 attacks of great club users is also frustrating to deal with. they always seem to connect even though i am doing my best to stay a good distance from them. by the gawds! how do you not get hit by damnable thing!
