Hear me out on this, because it might just blow your mind. When you come across any buff, you've trained yourself to avoid it and wait it out. But what if I were to land hits ahead of you as you came out of your roll or as you back yourself away towards a tree or wall?
Finally a combination that takes mind games to a whole new level. Do you avoid and possibly get punished hard for it? Or do you go for a parry against a dead angling weapon that has a buff?
