Yeah, too often when I go looking for a straight up sword fight in PvP I run into weapon buffs and dark magic. I'm not complaining about their tactics, I just wish I had some way to counter all the magic that's constantly coming my way.
For example as I normally like to be nimble most of my builds have light/medium armour, but the other day I started using a heavy set (stone giant) and I don't stand a chance against magic users for the most part. May be because I'm not used to it I admit but there does seem like very little I can do to fend off magic other than learn some spells myself.
The article mentioned a guard break against "shield turtlers", doesn't Dark Souls already have this in the sense that once you deplete the enemies stamina they stagger for an easy opening, even happens with AI like Silver/Black Knights?
