Her guide gives that as a suggestion, just as well as the vitality route. I would say for most people both ways work. Vitality route will let you carry Spirit Shield which gives nice mana, life and +skills. Block route will reduce the amoutn of times you actually get hit. Both need to invest in str and blaock route in dex.Rustydagger said:Okay Saja's build says to go dex to max block, now this is kind of a debate but which do you think is more benifical max block or put thouse points into vitality for a mf'er ?
What if you regret it later when you need blocking?:smiley: People's replies here just prove that it's a personal taste thing; both are quite viable.rata said:i agree...don't waste points on dex for blocking (you'll regret it later when u need the vitality)
Agree, in fact people won't go non-block for the vitality, since there is not much diff between ~200 dex and ~156 Str(to wear Monarch) but for the ability to wear Spirit and get higher FCR and FHR.MageChick said:indeed - both work. It always comes down to playstyle. If it were as simple as points into dex or points into vit, I'd choose blocking every time. But going max block just limits your shield choices too much. (just about all of my builds need the FCR from spirit too)
