Re: Max Block

Maths lesson. Owww how exciting...

Total Blocking = (Blocking * (Dexterity - 15)) / (Character Level * 2)

First total blocking = 75%, blocking = 72%, Clvl = 87 and Dex = ?

So, 0.75 = (0.72*(D-15))/174

now rearrange to get D on it's own and D = 197

I just hover my mouse over the defence stat and keep plugging in points till it is as the desired percent.

Re: Max Block

They have competing trading forums there, so Gorny yells at people when they post that link. Is he an evil mod, or what?

Re: Max Block

Cool, thanks! Quick question, It says for "base shield blocking" that its different for every class. So if my stormshield says 72% block on it, is it not actually 72% because its different for every class (in this case assassin)?

Since your Assassin is wearing it take that as the base blocking. If you gave it to a Paladin the base would change and then you'd take that new number instead.

Having it in the inventory is the same as wearing it in terms of the base blocking percentage. Put it in the stash of a paladin and you'll see it change.
