    I stated what to do with heavy weapons AND fast weapons. He never stated his weapon type, so I put what you should do with both. Well What is it

    In that case, get ready to be roll bsed, then. Well What is it

    Deal with it.

    Don't deal with it, do something about it like learning rushdown.

    I'm using dex weapons (heaviest one I use is probably the claymore/flamberge?). How do you bait them into wasting their stamina?

    Especially for the players who are very cautious when you run up to them, they'll only hit once and then flip away. And only when you flip away do they unload on your invisible lagging hitbox for an easy kill from across the screen.

    I wouldn't call it 'abusing invincibility frames', more like 'basic dodging'. Never be tricked by the hit sounds, I find I get more damage on enemies when triggering the shield 'clank' sound than when triggering the 'splat' clean hit sound, and that's even when not dead angling.

    Sometimes it's also possible to proc lag and force them to take damage on recovery even though you attacked before they entered the roll. I'm not entirely sure how it works though, I can't get it consistently at all but the Katana running R1 does this more than any other weapon (they'll DWGR flip away and be like 20m across the screen and then you hear the 'boompf' hit effect, the 'ugh' stagger sound and they'll bend over, poise broken by your invisible hit). The bad thing is they're often too far away to be hit by a follow-up.

    Spamming ranged attacks is a good way to drain someone's stamina. It's also a way to draw your opponent in for melee. You'll have to monitor your distance, to make sure that you'll be close enough to capitalize, yet not close enough to get roll BS'ed. Using poison knives or arrows, or throwing dung pies will force your opponent to waste stamina or get inflicted. A poisoned or toxic opponent will often get flustered and perhaps overly aggressive, especially if you start kiting and/or tanking. Tanking against overly aggressive opponents in general will obviously drain their stamina. However, against the hit and flip guys don't try to counter like you normally would. Block any attacks and just follow their rolls without trying to hit them, save your stamina and let them burn theirs. I find a rapier is great for hitting ninjas between flips. If you off hand the rapier you can stun them with few quick hits, then use your main weapon to deal some major damage.
