    Guided arrow hits every time. Also, any elemental damage from skills like Fire/Explosive/Immolation and Cold/Ice/Freezing Arrows applies all the time. Skills like Lightning Fury and Charged Strike as well.

    Smite cannot be blocked either.

    I thought guided arrow could be blocked and I'm pretty sure I have blocked them before.

    Guided arrows are physical and can be blocked fully.

    you can block the 2nd hit of nado when it passes through you, I've definatly heard and seen blocking from it. but first hit is only blocked by duel claw sins or avoid zons

    is there a general rule for what can and cannot be blocked?
    or is this all irregular?
