Basically altering every item, spell, and mechanic in the game.

Heavy armor is becoming more useless than it already was. First, no poise - now lower defense.

Increased tracking and fewer uses on spells? So make PVP worse and PVE more tedious?

lol every weapon in the game is getting damage increased? I guess killing every non-boss character in 2-3 hits is too many?

Thinking back to Dark Souls, the only patches that really stuck out with me are the Dark Wood Grain Ring and scaling damage.

At least they are pro-actively working to fix it.

What is it that they are fixing?

Start by making scaling more viable, poise remotely viable, etc.

they are reducing the time you are stunned during combos, buffing poise on heavy armor while reducing it's DEF, and increasing scaling

I'm not sold yet but it -sounds- like they are moving in the right direction anyway

Need source on first statement. I did not see this in anything I read.

Dark Souls could've used some better patches for sure.

Fog Ring sticks out to me. I don't care what anybody else says, it was annoying when literally everybody I ran into had a Fog Ring.
I just want Card Sagas Wars. Seriously, I'd do anything, just give me Card Sagas Wars. Please.

No poise? Ha! I've used the Pursuer's Ultra Greatsword with about 95 poise for hundreds of fights, and I can tell you that poise is bloody useful.

A very good percentage of my hits are due to poising through the enemy's strikes, and when I fight a turtle, I often poise through every swing they make. Poise is extremely useful to me, possibly due to my using a weapon that takes advantage of it.

Also, if heavy armour is useless, I'd have to wonder why it's the current meta. Heavy armour can more than halve incoming physical damage, and with high VIT, it barely impedes you. I have 52% weight at SL150 with Looking Glass legs and arms, a Gyrm Greathelm and 24.0 weight of weaponry.

I really don't get how that's useless.

Judging the patch before it even takes effect. That doesn't make sense.
