    gives 46 apparently.. but depends on whether you have the 20 poise chest or not.. (with it's 51 poise altogether)

    seriously wtf is going on with that? some people have it others don't...

    ok im wearing that in on my current character. And I'm almost postive its 35. Definitely not 50. I will double check that tonight though. Seriously whats up with this armor? I'm acutally on the verge of ditching it due to the low posie.

    Yeah, some people still somehow have it at 20 poise, others at 15 (post-patch). Whenever I start a new game and go get a new suit of it, the chest is still at 15.

    Can someone who has it at 20 poise try that with a new game and see if the new suit they pick up is still at 20 poise? If so, you could start a pretty nice side business selling 20 poise pieces to the rest of us.

    I always have 20 poise on it, and have done ever since i bought it and after patch

    Ill go check on all my accounts now and i might start creating accounts and giving some 20 poise versions to mildred since there will probably be some demand big grin

    also in terms of total poise, with the 20 chest my game has 46 poise total wearing full elite knights, so on others it will be 41, needs changing guys, I'll do that now

    edit: just checked I have it on every character, 20 poise for elite knight's chest, ill PM mildred ask if she wants some.

    lol, can't you people add?! My bad, I forgot to change the sum cell after changing the others.

    - Elite Knight used to have 46 poise, total, pre-1.05.
    - Post 1.05, Elite Knight has 34 poise (except for Serious's...).

    I'm going to get my game back later today, I'll check and make sure then. Or someone could check in the mean time.

    Most important things, in my opinion, are poise and weight. And a great med set for that is the Knight's. Underrated set, in my opinion.

    Why you say so? Elite Knight is better in every aspect I believe.

    Knight had always had the same poise as Elite Knight, but for less weight. And post-patch, EK's poise was nerfed, whereas Knight's wasn't, making it even better in comparison than it used to be. There's something to be said for being underrated; being under the radar means you won't get nerfed!


    @Strange

    Havel's legs look pretty good when you're wearing them with no chest, or a light one. I think they look good from the back either way, just no so much from the front. And anyways, your suggestion probably offered better defense. I just don't care about defense, only poise!

    Hey Blaine, have you any idea of how much poise is required to resist a hit from a Great Club? (Yes, it's for you).

    To be honest, I don't really know much about poise! Someone said 76 once, and I just aim for that all the time. I think there's also a number in the mid-50s--could be that one. And there's also a number around the 100s... I would really love to know more precisely about poise.

    76 zwiehander stunlock cut-off, 56 claymore stunlock cut-off, and 100 plus is probably the cut-off for great hammers or axes

    Feel like I should clear up the EK thing, it has the same poise as Knights and they do come really close in defense and weight values. EK is only 1.8 units heavier in exchange for 2-5 more defense depending on the piece.
