Does Block actually help Ranged Characters?

Postby SilentFocusRS » Mon Apr 12, 2021 12:38 am

I am rebuilding my characters up from level 86 and my key Skills have been Accuracy, Light/Heavy Weapon and Light/Heavy Armor. The rest of the skills don't really seem to be as necessary as you can use a high enchant item to boost yourself up. However, I am trying to find a 6th skill for my character. Since the Dual Wield Nerf from moving from Classic to the current version, I am experimenting with Block.

Also, is Block only intended to work on the front facing side?

Block only works with a shield and from the front.

(I don't remember any "nerf" to dual wield. I did fix bugs but I'm pretty sure dual wield calculations were not changed. ;) )

Hey, Elendil. Thanks for that information. I guess it was a nerf to Daggers then when moving from the Classic Versions to the HD versions. I typically like playing Ranged only or Rogue only characters, so I wanted to see if they were still viable.

I appreciate the info!
