Having trouble getting to grips with the combat. I suspect I am playing it too much like DS1.
With War I could block/counter and he had a long reach, scythe for crowd control, etc. so by the end I wasn't taking a single hit from regular enemies.
With Death unable to block I find I am taking a hit or two from even the weakest enemies before I can combo them or juggle them up in the air.
Dodging out of the way just seems to send the camera all over the place and the enemies and their neon colour palette (first realm) often occlude the vision. Dodge too much and the frame rate goes to shit
I suspect I should be using target lock more often - but other than for bosses that just seems to get me blind sided by other mobs.
