If they mostly block and stab at the same time then just circle them.

If they two-hand and roll away you're going to have to find a way to close the distance. Slight strafing helps.

Magic? I think you're leaving out a few details.

Are they blocking?

Poison Arrows, dungpies, and poison throwing knives. Force them into trying to back away and using a moss. If possible, CSS them when they are mossing. If not, just stab

Decrease their health value to 0 so their character dies before your health value is reduced to 0 and your character dies, to be specific

It's just as long as spears and has higher poise break then spears.
