    Claw Blocking

    How Do I Know What Speed My Blocking Is?
    If I have it at 50%, do I dex to my char like I have a 50% shield?
    I heard that it blocks spells, is this true? even AoE?

    Dexterity doesnt effect claw blocking. Your blocking is whats listed on the skill, no more, not matter your dex.

    I dont know about speed, sorry.

    As for spells, again, I've got limited experience with it, but from my small amount of experience, and from what I've heard, it CAN block spells, of course, its not guaranteed to, but they can be blocked, as a normal attack would be.

    Sorry I'm not more help, thats about what I know on the topic ;)

    Check the assassin forum's FAQ, it has a list of what it blocks and doesn't block. It does block ALOT of spells though. I know it can block Meteor for example, but it doesn't block the damage over time that the fire on the ground does.

    It also apparently doesn't block anything at all if you are moving.

    What Matt said about dex and your shield type not affecting your claw block is correct also.
