How do I combat players in the arena who somehow manage to roll all of my miracles? I just lightning staked a dude here a bit ago and it clearly landed. He didn’t roll until after the stake hit but, it gave him the iFrames anyway and he took no damage. Is there just some animation cancel I don’t know about or something? I’m asking because he was mid attack, which is typically how I catch people, using unfaltering prayer to poise the hit.

Probably lag. You gotta adjust to the connection, and predict what they will do before they do it and catch the server just right.

Well guess I’ll just have to pay closer attention.
