    PnB Necro, Max block or not?

    Topic pretty much says it, id just like as many opinions as possible, please state your reasoning as well. I am really tempted to go pure vita, because spirit is so amazing even vs melee (35 fcr/55 fhr is just to good to pass up) i would still get dr from Coa and enigma, and it would also allow me to use white as a weapon al the time and still have 125 fcr.

    BUT it is still bugging me that i wont have max block, i know from making other chars just how useful it is vs melee. So id like your thoughts, ty in advance.

    I have make 4 necro now,and now going back to max-block.I say unless u duel element only,then go all vita.If duel in pubby like me,then use max-block.Like the guide say,if u got skiller lifers,then go max block since each stats only give 2 life.

    all the advice i've ever had regarding max-block pvp necs has been pretty consistent:

    If your Pub dueling, then imo max block is a must. For PvM or caster duels only, vita is good.

    Max Block If you have access to wealth and like to make BvCs/Smiters/Windy's cry.
    Vita If you aren't so rich.
    Generally, Max Block is best.

    How much life would I gain by going vita? necros only get like 2 life per vit point..so instead of those points in dex if i put in vit i only gain like 400 life, is that really worth it to lose max block?

    it is more likely to be around 700-800 life:
    180 dex(average item) invested=360=700 life after bo

    Err.. windy? :p I don't think you can block nado unless you are an assassin.

    Going to also agree with
    as I've done it in this exact situation.

    I use Homo, and I find that Max block is wasted stat points. Especially if you use Bone armor or skellies. My 72% block with base dex is just fine.

    I suppose it depends on what shield you use.

    Edit: I don't duel, so, my only experiences are with Monsters. >.>

    while homo give +2 skill damage,some nice resist,low dex block requirement,actually it is not that useful in duel.In general ,you need to stack hugh amount of resist when dueling elemental caster:all sorc,foher etc,impossible for homo to reach.When duel phyical char, you will need pdr which homo don't have .Also it doesn't provide fhr and fcr as Spirite does,which both very important in duel
