Never tohught about parrying in that way, opportunistic. I never played Dark Souls 2 PVP. I've faced the random invasion yes but never went out of my way to make a PVP build unlike Dark Souls 1. Thanks man.
I don't get why a few words in the description saying thanks to the community would kill the hate a little. It's already assumed that Vaati is just telling a story. I never got the impression that he was 'innovating' just bringing a story altgether.
You know Andrew, you should seriously consider emulating your old iconic dark souls 1 build again. I'm not saying make it into another SL 125 quality build but it'd be lovely seeing the ol' crystalline helm, hollow thief top, iron bracelet and I think wanderer's tights back in action.
