Bleed feels so weak right now. i used to be able to get a few bleeds on a person and do enough damage throughout the fight that i could win. Now it seems its next to useless. I loved that mechanic but all the shirking/leaching/regen negate any kind of bleeds.
Did the bleeds get reduced or did the shirking/leaching/regen get buffed? whats going on? someone in light should get hit pretty hard by bleed and they’re just regening through it like its nothing.
The game is definitely lacking Dot focused builds
PvP, is still all about rolls!
I’ve got massively raped by some guys with Spear + Rapier and got killed lot of times just by the bleed I can’t handle, at least you using the perk “Blood Letting” and got “Keenly Jagged” in both weapons? But also, an addition to bleeding that I think is necessary to make it “Viable” is to take increased bleed damage while moving, 50% extra bleed damage while moving can make bleeding builds meta.
I would love to play a dot build, usually my fav playstyle. Still working on getting expertise up and will try experiment then. Btw do bleeds from different sources stack?
