Dark Souls patch notes translation, by mauve / @mauvecow
Japanese Source: http://info.darksouls.jp/other/pc/information_detail/2014-07-11-01.html

A few minutes after completion the official translation went up: http://farfire.darksoulsii.com/pc/information/index.html

Free to use this wherever with or without attribution, I don't care. Send me a message on Twitter if anything's wrong and I messed up.

Note: where I say "Increased damage" it usually means AR, unless it is specifically mentioning an attack.
