      I hope they would rework poison in this game. Ds3 poison was a slight inconvenience at best, sure it has its uses but it seemed very underpowered. Maybe with the addition of the posture system being poisoned will make stamina/posture recover slower if at all in pve for more reposts on enemies with higher health pools.

        I was hoping they would’ve buffed poison in this one, but it seems like the same thing from Ds3. Sure it had its uses, but it just seemed like more of an inconvenience than anything to be poisoned. You could just counter it with a blessed weapon in your offhand. I’m hoping that if they’re gonna keep it this way that it’ll also affect your stamina and posture recovery or something. Maybe in PvE it’ll allow more ripostes on bosses and enemies with higher health pools.

          Saw a video where the poison from the coiled shield did 7 HP per tick. Here's to hoping that damage ramps up or is %-based.
