    Block with Bone Armor??

    How exactly does block work with bone armor???
    And is it worth it in your opinion?

    I'm trying to decide whether to max block or not, or just put all my points into vitality.

    Thx

    First block is checked and after that Bone Armor. So it is worth it to get block with BA. But ONLY when you are a Meleemancer or a Daggermancer. If you are not going to Melee on a regular basis then I would advice against it.

    My previous HC necro was max vita build with more than 2000 life, max resists and 650 bone armor. That didn't save him though. Fana + Cursed archer pack in The Pit made short work of him.

    My new HC necro will be max block, no doubt about that. You have to have max resists with max block, though. Otherwise you're too vunerable to elemental attacks. That's my two hardcore cents.

    Here's anotehr question. How does damage reduction work with bone armor? Say I wear stormshield for some reason. Will my bone armor also take less damage from enemy hits?

    DR works with Bone Armor. If for some reason hits go past your defense and make it past blocking then DR is used to calculate how much damage will be inflicted upon your Bone Armor.
