All they need to do to fix the Ring of Fog is make it so the person using it cannot lock onto targets.
This is bullcrap
I almost (really really really f-ing close) beat some pile of human excrement that was invading near the bell tower in the undead parish.(so he could beat up on noobs and people that just started a new character)
I was just about to summon Solar when he invaded me (red phantom somehow with NO invasion warning). He swung his Queelagg's sword at me strafing my path with his shield up like the sack sucking, knob caressing, turd he is. I fought back as best as I could given I was armed with a lowly +1 scimitar. I managed to drain his life to less than 5%.
So before anyone say's learn to fight withought lock on I will just say I out fought him on every level. It was his insainly powerful sword that eventually got me. And to be honest if he didn't have a lock on me so he could backpedal with his shield up I would have killed him.
Sorry for the rant but untill this gets patched no one is going to have any fun with the PVP aspect of this game.
