    Default Why can't I up my block amount if I want to?

    I don't get it i'm wearing a shield with no block and I add a shield with +52 block and my block goes up by 2..... Unless I am really missing something here and I'll admit i havent been playing as much.

    is it really necessary to cap/normalize an attritbute that would help us customize and tweak in our own way to effect how we wanna play in pvp?

    Because, Mykee@deepwood, bolster breaks a lot of things. This is one of them.

    My my, how you've forgotten that warrior discussion thread.

    I was tempted to find a quote for the splash page but couldn't be bothered.

    I might be switching the theme up, and at that point I may see if there's a way to pull a random quote and display it at the top of each page under the image banner.

    After 263 posts Saia finally starts figuring out how to make sense in english.

    Not that I agree with what he said, but at least it makes sense.

    no, they wouldnt.
    block doesnt work vs spells. with an infinite block rating a warrior would still get pwned by mages.
    even with an infinite block, the warrior would still recieve damage from non-spell sources, as block only provides mitigation, not avoidance, and the level of mitigation is seperate from the block rating.


    the OPs point is valid, there are two souls (warlord & paladin) who's mechanic relies heavily on blocking attacks to proc OGCD reactives to provide the souls burst.
    low block = no reactives.

    And fewer convictions and/or no mana for clerics.

    Thank you... And i can't even customize my block or even secrifice damage for block because everything is normalized.

    our go to spec pally/wl/tempest plays like sht because the most important soul in the damn specs reactives dont even go off. You may get one to go off but you will never see the other go off because the CD.

    Nearly everything single fking skill is on a global cool down except blocking reactive.... why cant i hit my damn target when i need to trion?
