0007770: Necks almost always are easier to hit than Upper and Lower Body parts
I was noticing something in my plays, in that necks were almost aways the easiest body part to hit ("Easy Strike"). Most of the time it shows best chances to hit than bigger body parts, as Upper and Lower Body parts. I think there is something wrong about it.
Fight something with a neck.
I usually play with swordsman, maybe is something specific to swords.
No tags attached.

It also happens with axes (and probably any weapon). Theres just something about it that makes it easy to target and hit.

It also makes it ridiculously easy to one shot kill things by gullotining the neck.

Necks should be harder to hit - they're a little more concealed, and very small. Seconding that this happens.
