Best defense against backstab fishers. Just mix up heavies to avoid parries. My personal tactic is r1,r2, r1x2, r2, r1, r2x2. Victory. Because this weapon has insanely low stat requirements and though it gets a B in dex scaling, it only applies to that measly 90 physical, so it gets jack really for any stat investment, I run this weapon on a poise monster build (50 vitality, 90 endurance, 16 strength, 16 dexterity) with the Avelyn (I call it The Mage Masher). Spam attacks against other poise builds to break them, and as soon as a mage lifts their wand you have enough time to pepper them with an Avelyn spray and roll away usually for about 490-580 against light armor builds. This set up to me, feels so, so, soooooo damn dirty.
