In fact, maybe you could do one on Flipping Mask Tanks in general? You arguments, especially regarding the masks, seem to make them a lot more palatable. I don't want to rage as much now when I see one.
Poise is a regenerating invisible bar that is like stamina so the more you have the less likely you are to reach Zero when hit with heavy poise damaging weapons aka Ultra great swords & great swords.
If you are hit with a great sword two handed R1 and you have 56 poise you wont be stun locked (one exception MoonLGS does 56 poise so 57 poise is suggested against them)
Against ultra GS the can do about 74-75 poise dmg so the suggested is 76.
phantom hits (the ones that register sound but not dmg done when one is usually dodgeing) still dmg poise but only half of the intended amount.
