Besides of the obvious 50 shield.. how is the usual specc?
50 LW or CS
50 LW or CS
It's been said often but proved wrong.Gargo said:50 1h = higher ws
1 of the variables on chance to block is WS iirc? so 50Sheild/ 1h is the ultimate blockbot

Block is based on these things:
Mastery of Blocking
Opponent weaponskill: lower ws = more hits blocked
Heard something about shield size and 1h weaponskill affecting chance to slam (?) but I'm really not too sure about that.
except heroes cant use fang.Shangrila said:Best race for blockbot is either celt (higher conn and str) or luri (highest dex for best block chance, but less conn/str). Luri hero with pierce is quite funny. Get him a fang and he does ok dmg too.
Thats a myth! Shield got his own hidden weapon table thing. whateverVasconcelos said:According to some test, it seems that ws affects chance to bipass: target ws, parry, block and evade. So the higher ws u have, the higher chance to hit with shield styles like Slam. Yet again, according to VNBoards test...
However, ws doesnt affect your blockrate (either selfblock or guards).
Looks like 50shield, 50 ws, rest parry is the wise option for a pure guardbot.
Agree.. my hero only has 42 shield and 6 blades, but I have no trouble slamming at all, if there was any truth in the 1h weaponskill having an effect on shield then I would be hopeless at slamming.Icebreaker said:Thats a myth! Shield got his own hidden weapon table thing. whatever
You know what i mean xD
ok i have and hero who is specced full sword/shield and an rl mate plays and hero with 50 spear, 50 shield, 28 parry and i can't see any difference in slamming. Why? Because there is none
