Dual Claw Block Help

I've heard that it also blocks elemental skills..i.e. nados. Is this true? And for an LS pvm sin..should I max dual claw block or fire blast after ls/synergy?

I've seen/heard it block lightning, fire bolts, those magic balls the harpies shoot, etc.

Haven't been in a position to see if it stops tornadoes though

I can't, but just for the record I think the attack those harpies use is 100% physical.

* Weapon Block allows Assassins to use two Katar (or Claw Weapons) while still having Blocking. Assassins that use two Katars will want to invest heavily in this skill. Even a 1% Increase in Blocking will provide a great amount of protection.
* Weapon Block does not benefit from Dexterity or increased chance of blocking.
* You will only block while standing still or attacking. Weapon Block does not work while walking or running.
* Note: Whirlwind is an attack and weapon block will still function during the attack.

It doesn't say anything about elementals, but WB does block all attacks including elementals based on the above conditions.
