I am sword and broad warrior. I am on low HP, but I am still pretty much capable to fight. At one point, I stop blocking in order to preform different action. Opponent gets into killcam position right away and chops off my head.
Okay, it's all good, I was on low hp. But the problem is next;
I know exactly how much damage does he do to me with normal attacks and how much can he do with power attack. So in some situations, I got executed by a killcam, because opponent attacked me. But;
If I have, lets say, 50 hp left and opponent uses normal attack with 30, he will get me down to 20 hp. If his power attack does 60+, he will kill me that is for sure. If I use shield, I will basicly negate normal attack, and recieve 20 from power attack. Now, if I don't have my block up, and he uses power attack, he will kill me right away if my shield is not up. I have really enough time to block if I see him doing power attack, which takes up to more than 1 second if he is using 2h weapon.
Problem here is, if he goes for power attack which could be fatal, it wont give me a chance to block. I will get killed without being able to block, just because at that certain point my shield wasn't up, and even tho I could've blocked if I saw power attack coming, it doesn't count for nothing because killcam is killcam.
I know this sounds confusing, I am really terrible at explaning. But yeah, it's bit annoying because if I raise my shield as power attack is coming, I will get in slow-mo, and I will have all the time in the world to evade. But even tho swing time to hit me with 2h power attack is around a second (And you can really tell when they're about to preform one), I will have no chance to attempt to block, rather I'll get killed instantly as if I had no chance of survival at all.
I doubt Beth will fix this, because it doesn't seem like a simple thing to do, but does anyone of you have the same issue with this?
