    Elite knight Poise Query Thread

    Post by Serious_Much on Fri Mar 16, 2012 10:47 pm

    Hey all, finally got around to sending my query to From and Namco Bandai (both EU and US). Hopefully I will get a response in the near future.

    This thread I've created to post their replies for you all to read since this is something we're doing as a community, I'm just organising it I suppose. (I'll be glad if it's not a non-responsive flop though silly)

    Feel free to post anything relevant in here, lets all wait together big grin

    This is the enquiry I sent:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am a member of an international community of players who actively help others on the game you help distribute: Dark Souls.

    There is an armour set, the Elite Knight set that has come to the attention of our members that this set has varying values for the poise stat depending on what system and what region you are from, post patch 1.05.

    This is my raw data which I collected for the chest piece only (to simplify, the chest version correlates with the rest of the set), Elite Knight Poise Survey Results:

    EU PS3: 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20

    EU Xbox: 15, 15

    Americas PS3: 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 20, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 15

    Americas Xbox: 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20

    Australasia PS3: 20

    Australasia Xbox: 20

    Japan PS3: 20, 20, 20

    In general, in Europe the PS3 version has 20 poise and Xbox has 15, whilst in the Americas, this is reversed. The poise value in Japan is 20 whilst in Australasia, both seem to be 20 (though my data is lacking, as you can see in some areas)

    My question is why is this the case? Why does this value vary and is this a 'true' variation? Is it implemented or simply a visual on screen numerical error?

    Thank you for reading this and I hope for a swift response. Also If this question is directed at the wrong people, could you please let me know who I should contact with my query?

    With Many Thanks,

    same, i wanna know if it's actually an effected error, or just a visual one mostly. I'd keep using it anyway since it looks good but, yeah head scratching in motion at the moment bounce

    Good point about the possibility of it just being a display error rather than implemented at 15 poise. Unfortunately, given my extensive experience with being stunlocked and cut in half by ultra greatswords I am pretty sure the 15 poise pieces (which I have) are indeed implemented at 15.

    Candidly, it is really weird the things they patch/nerf, and the things they don't. Some people's elite chest pieces have their poise dropped for no apparent reason (they were not OP), yet you can still pivot backstab someone from the front, and bb glitch up 198 slabs. Sure, why not

    Some extra poise would make the game a bit easier after the garden for some people.

    anyway yeah just as forum said, Ill be posting the responses to the community's findings here, but considering the nature of the question the response may take a while to come through, or even may not even receive response besides and emergency 1.06 patch lol!

    found it silly

    Right then, it's been a week and still no reply, so I'm feeling the worst: I'm not gonna get a response.

    has anyone else tried to contact FROM or Namco before and gotten a response?

    May sound silly but I know from experience it can happen, did you send it from an email account that could be deemed "unprofessional", usually anything that isn't yourname @ whatever? Had to actually call an office because the email I had sent was regarded as spam, or something. Which I can see, due to one of the bad reps my handle has.
