The perfect poise is 53 ?
Seems to be 81
53 or 61, period. Maybe 77 if you can afford it. Going 81 is nonsensical...just roll.

Why 61? Wouldn't it take 62 to survive two straight/curved sword R1s?
I have a dex build with fastroll and 77 poise
@anomymous How the hell do you get fastroll and 77 poise? Havel's ring is garbage. ROFAP and either ninja flip ring, hornet ring, or if farming chunks, gold covetous.
Infinite poise is best... Just like with everything else.

53 is good enough most of the time but running attacks from a great sword will poise break you so 56 is what you want but maybe 62 for curved swords but 77 is pretty silly if youre going to go to that point just do 93 so you can tank 3 hits from small weapons or 112 to tank 2 hits from bigger ones extremely unnecessary though and you would probably do better with less armor and fast rolling, at the very least do 32 and if you just want to get gud and roll through everything at least have a little poise so daggers and armor of thorns dont ***** you up
Giant Dad load the basscanon. PS: for those who didn't know you can wear giant armor and fast roll. But 125 meta say better ninja flip. This makes Giant Dad out of meta but still enjoyable.
Thank you AGAIN FextraLife!
Someone told me once that if your poise was high enough in Dark Souls 1 only, you could negate the ability for you to be parried.

I don't see anything listed here saying that.

So is it true, or is the guy a dip?
Nope. Its not true
Think of parrying as putting the subject in a different state. Like backstabs it's kind of a critical hit state. It ignores poise but also doesn't deplete it. So an attack after your iframes deplete still affects the full poise value.

Is there any relation between poise and hitting through a wall instead that the weapon will bounce off? If not is there a list that show which weapon slice through walls and which not?
