    Yeah to stop ultra greatswords I think you need 76 but the MLGS needs an extra point of poise i.e. 77 before you can avoid getting stunlocked by it. Thats a guess Im not entirely sure.

    8 poise (6 poise for 1-hand resists, or Fist Weapons):
    All Rapier 2h R1s
    All Dagger 2h R1s
    All Fist Weapons R1s (although this is actually 6 since you can't 2-hand a Fist Weapon)

    ....the
    ring alone can be a lifesaver. It is a necessity on my Dragon form. And
    I use it on a number of other build to hit the magical 53, (covers
    everything one handed and virtually everything 2 handed, other than big
    things you should never let hit you anyway. :p ).

    I loathe the DGWR, (looks SOOOOO stupid, lol), and only use it on one build. A ninja, (go figure silly )

    The problem with the list is it is a generalization of all the weapons. And there are quite a few that I would call outliers. For example the MLGS.

    MLGS actually hits for either 55 or 56 poise, can't remember which. That is why people think it has a crazy stunlock ability, but really it just stunlocks people that go for the 53 because they assume that their poise should prevent it. And don't forget you need to have one more poise than the hit you are taking to not be stunned.

    Back OT. I am a forest hunter so I usually run with 77+ poise. Because usually I am dodging 2 people not just one.
