Blocking well from the new video release today it appears blocking is completely different for shields now from d2. check out the video around 3:12 you will see the shield lists Buckler -Off Hand 78Armor Chance to Block +25% Block Amount: 6-10 Block Amount?? ok if this is what i think it means this is a drastic change. from Arreat Summit "Blocking always works against physical attacks. 75% Blocking will indeed stop 75% of attacks from hitting, regardless of whether you are attacking, or standing, or whatnot. Note: that if a player is moving, the block percentage is reduced to 1/3rd of its original value. Think of it as "resist physical." block amount 6-10 could means if you have a successful block then only 6-10 point of damage are negated if this is the case blocking looks absolutely awful, but since we have no facts im only making a guess. Please chime in and add some observations please.
