    It's not as bad with Greatswords or other large weapons where you've got a sizeably larger windup animation to work with. Dex weapons though, especially something like a Falchion, you just can't afford to get hit at all. And I guess that's really the whole reason I've set my build up this way, to actually avoid damage altogether rather than falling back on the idea that I can always tank at least one hit. I actually ran END up to 48 so that if I wanted to I could swap my Heavy Boots for Black Iron greaves with the Wolf and hit the GS breakpoint, or go BI gaunts and greaves for 76 poise and still fast roll. And that option is basically for ganks.

    I meant to also say that tomorrow I'm going to anchor down with some cool, refreshing Budweiser and head to the Kiln with no poise and no weapons. Figure I'll spend a couple hours just running around trying to toggle everything. Once I get that down, I'll bring the gear back out and see how I fair.

    If you have a Falschion R1 Spammer, just press L2 on the first hit. You'll parry their third hit (IIRC) for one hell of a surprise.

    Can't tank any hits though. So it has to be blind.

    If you'll be SL 120 in the kiln tomorrow I can grab an assortment of weapons out of my box and whack you around if you want more dedicated practice, if it'll be Ps3 I don't recall having seen you mention which platform you play on. I personally could use some unlock practice against non flips as I rarely see fast rollers I tend to whiff all my pyromancy all day on em.

    SL 125 on PS3. PSN is DamageCK. Got a doc's appointment in an hour, after that I'm free to beat up on for the day. Just send me a message.

    Roll R1 is pretty predictable. Parry that, if he uses it a lot.

    Some of the sweeping roll r1's are tough to parry if they don't face you directly but roll to your side and hit you with the corner of the attack.

    If they're smart (or) lucky, yes. That's why you've got to establish their pattern first. Those that try to dead angle with their rolls or only do 2 R2s at a time are much tougher to parry. And, probably not worth it unless they have another easy pattern.
