Could someone please explain the loch shield to me please, people say it blocks all non physical damage but it doesn't and then it blocks physical hits pretty well. It saved me from some of ludwigs attacks even. I'm just confused because there aren't any values to resistances listed

I am confused as well. The orphan was blocked a lot better by the wooden shield. Against the large slow arcane ball spell from the failures I blocked back then on my stream.

Threw me over and cost 50 % of my hp... I really need to do some more testing with it.

I actually did damage tests of each type earlier today to see if kin/beast alters the damage you take. I suppose I could redo those tests blocking the same attacks and note the changes.
I am snazzier, hot, hot rant. Warily slight as.
Croak rush, OK? Weirder, almighty make out. ::)

I didn't have a particularly good blood damage attack to test on but eh, it's pretty easy to do for anyone who has to know I suppose.

I wouldn't trust an attack like that to be pure any type of damage. A boss is also a bad testing subject. I could probably just test on a Yharnamite gunman fellow but I've been kinda pulled in other directions.
