    Why? He looks easy to dodge, if i can do O&S mid rolling, i can beat him.

    If all else fails, i'll just block with his own shield silly

    Sounds like you answered your own question. If you're used to a medium roll against NG+++(or whatever) 4 Kings and others I doubt you'll have a problem with the new stuff. I think the hardest boss of the DLC for me to med. roll would be Manus, but again, if you're used to it you'll be fine.

    *edit* but with a name like Shakie you really ought to be fast-rolling.silly

    Medium roll is just fine to do everything =]. Though I still prefer light roll, my brother has medium roll and instead rocks 90+ poise which I must say helps a lot at times.

    You will do fine with mid roll.

    If you have a good stability shield you don't even need to roll much
    while fighting Manus.

    Both fights are easy for medium-heavy build. I block all Artorias attacks with 32 points in stamina and hever lost any HP but be careful one of his attack can hit you directly totaly ignoring shield.. Of course i used the A. shield +5. Dont try to hit him while he is attacking. You can get under chain jump hits. He is open when recharging. It took me 4 or 5 recharging times to kill him. If you get to him fast enogh there is time for 2-3 hits.

    Manus even easier especially if you summon Sif. I used only one estus flask while fighting him.

    My char is in medium armor with shield of Artorias and BKS all items ascended to maximum. I am 0.5 under 50%.

    Practice with midroll, you'll get used to it pretty fast if your build doesn't allow fastroll, I hear the i-frames of slower rolls have been buffed too so easier times against builds like pyromancers that caused problems before when midrolling.

    The mid-roll is faster in PTDE then before, so it's more then viable to mid-roll now. The real question is if the fatroll works at all.

    You can fat roll through a single attack without any trouble. You'll get hit by a subsequent strike of a combo, though. So as soon as you learn moves you will be able to fat roll like a king happy Rolling closer when boss hits once. Rolling away when boss is about to unleash a combo. As easy as that.

    Nope you can certainly med roll. It's very viable, it'll just take some practice if your not used to it. Also, get a good shield. :face:
