hyperarmor means that u have greatly increased defences when doing a hyperarmor attack. so when u get hit doing a hyperarmor attack u only get a small deal of the damage the attack would normally do. it also decreases the chance your attack gets interrupted if the opponent hits u a fraction earlier.
so yes, its a trade hit thingy.

@Back_Lot_Basher
@Achtpuntzes is correct.

most weapons with a decent weight have hyper armor when 2 handed, representing the inertia gathered by the weapon in the swing, making it "unstoppable" past a certain momentum gathered.

in the case of the drakeblood GS for example, none of the one handed moves has hyperarmor.

but the 2 handed R1, R2 and Stance have hyperarmor: this means that you can tanks through an attack as Achtpuntzes said without getting staggered in the process.
the more poise you have, the more resilient to stagger: poise works only during hyperamor frames and strengthen hyperamor basically

each attack also has different amounts of hyperamor tied to it: so for example the drakesword 2 handed R1 will get you through any one handed spear R1 unstaggered but not through a greatsword R1...the 2H R2 will get you through anything lighter than a 2 handed greatsword R1 (not entirely accurate, just trying to illustrate) while the Stance R2 will get you through a 2H R1 of an ultraGS !

still many people dont know how hyperarmor works.

i use it all the time (sunlight talisman's special) and alot people dont understand that even when they hit me with their normal attacks they do only few damage while i land my sunlight spear right through their attacks in their face doing huge damage or often even a one hit kill.
well its easy. i do a hyperarmor attack, and they don't. and then i will Always come out on top when trading hits.

That's awesome...thanks for the tips on hyperarmor. I had no idea about all this. I'll be sure to get as close as possible to 70% with a good poise ratio.
