Stormshield vs. Homoculus I know a lot of ppl think that homo is better than ss since it has higher block rate, thus require less dex. However, sometime i think ss is better in some cases. (against v/t) i just want to know ppl's comment about them which to use against melee. stromshield- advantage: u will have flexibility between ur belt and rings, max dr. higher fcr as well. disadvantage: rquire more dex to maintain max block. (217 at lvl90) Require more str as well. (can be offset with enigma though) homoculus- advantage: require less dex to max block. (203 at lvl90) More skills, thus means more life & more dmg. (not really if u use the right gear setup) disadvantage: u will have to use enigma + ber'd shako + ber'd homo + 15dr verdungo to get 49%dr, which means less flexibility between belt and rings when against melees.
