    my block theory

    I think going into fhr starts the block cooldown timer and makes you temporarily unable to block.
    I get this theory from dueling barbs and seeing them hit me on all of up to the first 7 swings, all causing fhr, then another hit being small enough to not cause fhr I start blocking.
    I've also done some testing and I never block immedietly after fhr.

    Somethign is definetly horribley wrong with block and I think I've found it.

    jack came with this theory on useast, he did some tests and found out that having less block would turn out better, so socketing the stormshield with something other then shael would be better. Dont know, I'll test myself once i get build my new druids.

    I am interested in this but don't really have any information about it - I know Ink posted some stuff earlier about this very thing - talking about different weapon speeds working better with certain blocking speeds.

    The thing is that we need to find a median between best amount of FBR with the best amount of FHR. Unfortunately I'm lousy at testing this stuff. If anyone wants to do it I can probably compile the data or something for them.

    In theory, starting a block timer by hit recovery shouldn't be so bad, because when block timer starts, blocking does happen, although block animation isn't displayed (to prevent block lock).
    But I never tested it so it is possible that blocking within block timer doesn't happen in whereform. That would be second bug in wolfs blocking, together with one you decribed.
