Is a low number like 18 or 9 just as useless as having 0 poise?

Ive heard 8, but don't know what it blocks. I usually go with 0, just over 52, or the most I can manage.

I believe 8 protects you from Rapiers, Daggers, etc

For PvP? 31 would be the lowest I would go unless you are just making a fun build. 35, 36 are preferable.

For PvE? 0. Though personally I try to avoid any poise at all in PvE.
If you build your shop in front of an arrow trap, sometimes you are going to get shot by an arrow.
