    Yeah, but the DWGR nerf is just too big news. I do care about story/bosses/new items spoilers though. I don't mind the new patch.

    So, the DWGR is a spoiler now? The entire vanilla game content is supposed to be spoiler tagged?

    Are we really gonna suffer that "Hey, I know this is a medieval game and all, but please spoiler the fact that you can find crossbows" stuff?

    Heck, Wyrm, remove your signature. BOSS SPOILERS!

    They also nerfed the Eagle Shield, 95% physical reduc now, amazingly probably good for Karmic Justice builds.

    Even though I'm somewhat new to this game still, I've had my fair share of "experience" with the DWGR, usually on the receiving end of invaders who use it, then a friend was telling me about it so I did my research to see what all the fuss was about.

    I'm kinda disappointed that they nerfed the eagle shield though, its classified as a greatshield and it wont have 100% physical reduction? Granted its not really a good shield for pvp from what I've seen, but it was awesome for tanking hits against strong enemies in pve.

    Thing is, the Eagle Shield was way too good. 100% Physical + the best Stability in the game?

    I seriously hope they did a major revap, not just tweaked a few things. Otherwise what balance their was just drowned sea of underplanned nerfs.

    The ability to parry is really important to PvP, otherwise the Eagle Shield would be king. Compared to its other brothers, its requirement of 16 STR and only 6EL made it way too good for the stats. I said it before, but I wished they nerfed a lot more shields (especially medium shields) to 97-95 physical reduction. Its amazing that with the Sliver Knight's Shield you can pretty well block any one enemy forever, some nickle and dime'ing would be more realistic too. Greatshields are terrible in comparison to medium shields, because they weigh just so much and provide such little bonus over some heavier medium shields.

    Nerf of the DWGR makes is completly useless now.. why would anyone with under 25% equip burden use such a ring since they got a fast roll anyway?

    Its not like the I-frames of the DWGR are that much better. Your much better of using ANY other ring than DWGR now lol.

    They actually are that much better. Its a really extreme difference. I'm going to have to disagree with you. While you can argue that they benifit more from other rings, its just that, and arguement. Its by no means true for everyone, nor true for every build

    I just think that alot of people are so used to the DWGR I-frames that they dont know the timing for the fast roll I-frames. I know the DWGR ones are better but IMO its not that much of a difference and since ive been fast rolling a long time it doesnt matter that much to me. But i agree with you that it also depends on your build.

    Exactly, you are used to the timing. As a quick test, go roll naked through lava using the reg fast roll and the handspring. Its a really dramatic increase, it allowes even the barest, sloppiest dodges to negate all damage entirely. The fast roll doesn't. Thats a big advantage.

    You have a point; I guess I would have rather they nerfed the stability and not the damage reduction for the eagle shield. My theory is, its a greatshield, its large, and you can't parry with it...yet, smaller lighter shields will still have 100% blocking, and the ability to parry (at the cost of some stability). I guess in my mind, a larger shield should always be able to block more than a smaller shield, since its more difficult for weapons to "reach around" its size. Just my opinion though.
