    It's actually the same block skill (works just like monk block), it's just that skill mods from items do nothing if your class doesn't get that skill naturally.

    The 5 extra block skill is not applied.

    Thats my point... Monks/Bst can't use that shield so whats the point of the Block Skill bonus being thier??? Since it apparently doesn't do anything for any class that can use it.

    Then go make a S&R post about it and stop trashing up this thread that is for listing facts not debating them.

    It's my understanding this grants the block skill if you don't have it in much the same way that +1 crit strike allows a player to critical if they cannot otherwise.

    +skills have never worked this way.

    crit strike is an advanced item effect much like focus effects and work differently

    Does the first weapon's DMG stat effect the pets damage output or is it both weapons are only good for stats like.. SV.. AC.. Procs.. etc.?

    Does giving a pet a shield also give him the "shield block skill"??

    Thks.

    The pet will actually attack with each weapon independently. I believe that DMG for each weapon affects swings with that weapon if it raises damage. You usually only see this effect on lower levels however.

    Also there is a post of mine in this thread that contains some corrections to that pet information.

    At low levels a higher damage weapon can, if still does, affect damage. Delays are absolutely fixed though. If the weapon DamX2 is greater than your pets max hit then it will be the new max hit. Pets do receive stats/AC/procs etc from items as long as they do meet the level rec.

    Shields do let your pet bash, as for block skill, I do not think so but can never be 100% sure.

    Can you modify that again to include the number of AAs after which bonuses reset? It seems inconsistent to publish the data for levels and not for AAs.

    Have I ever been about consistency?



    The number doesn't translate perfectly (it uses a raw exp value before any modifiers to track this, so that exp bonus of a zone doesn't affect new area bonus), but I'll crunch the math when I find a moment.

    hay Zaknafean "Parry + Riposte are lost while casting. This was done to balance out the fact that a hybrid with a shield can out-mitigate a warrior, instead of just nerfing shields.
    Dodge, shield block are retained while casting." does that throw off the new knight changes any?.

    Correct. Casting doesn't affect those things at this point. I'll see if I can't update the list with more current info.

    I think I parsed this some time ago at 12.5% increase to damage from nuking, and assumed it was the same for most things? Could the real benefits be elaborated on?


    Does this stack with item, aa's etc crit chance?

    I'd assume it does, making paladins and warriors always have the highest % chance to melee crit, but not sure this is true.
