Fix the armor defense meaning nothing. Fix the Poise meaning nothing (people say it stops from getting stunned during an attack but that seems false, seeing how I get stunned during an attack after having 120 poise). Fix the laggy hits all the time (getting hit 5fth away by attacks AND spells). These are the real issues.
Fix the real issue: getting hit 5ft away from an attack, the lagstabbs (from the front), wrath of the gods and how OP it is.
