    Max block.

    How much dex do you need for max block rate with the homunculus?

    That is level dependant. You can find a table here.

    That's 350 health you could have had if you'd put those points into vitality.

    I think blocking three out of every fouur hits outweighs 350 health, but its all personal preferance right?

    Well think about it this way; you tele in a group of knights and get whacked.A lot.

    The ~350 extra life will NOT save you.
    The max block WILL save you.

    I'd say it depends on the nercro but I've become convinced that Vita is the way unless you're dueling. Crowd control curses will save you from everything.

    Not necessarily. If your FBR isn't up to spec you'll be Necro paste either way.

    Hehe Im with you. when I tele around I always find that max block is crucial (well if u compared to 400 life). And for maximum safety, while Im still in that FBR mode (which I think is better than in FHR mode and getting hit constantly disabling u to do anything) I have this iron golem made from delirum to cast confuse on monsters so I can have enough time to fully recover and tele to safety.

    and if you dont teleport?

    I think I can count the number of times im swung at on one hand in most games.... but I guess im an old necro who doesnt like these new things.

    I just dont like/have a hard time accepting teleporting as a necro. I dont have it, likely never will have it, and therefore since Im not walking into melee range.. dont need blocking.

    For those who teleport around... /shrug... yea you need max block when surrounded by baddies... my point is to never be surrounded by baddies.

    well as for a normal nec there are mostly 2 choice in pvp and pvm:
    homu and spirit

    homu is for max block users (wich i prefer) max block is good for pvm and pvp melee

    spirit is for pvp caster only duels for wich those 350 + extra bo will save ya life

    but what ya get those hp or a max block and higher def (if we are talking that way we take all things), max block is best to me in pvm wich will save youre butt plenty of times and spirit is perfect for dueling if you cant afford a good circlet and a good amulet (who will get away those 35% fcr), it is ya like more i use max block on my summon/boner and I do both dueling and pvm and in cows and Chaos sanctuary is saves me lotta times as i need to have my army togheter for good killing...

    rgzzz
