View Full Version : how does shield p def and song of hunter work??

sws are a heavy class, so why isnt the p def of the shield added to the overall p def??

and i thought that song of hunter doubles the crit rate, but this ist the case, cause with buffs focus, having a dagger with sa fucus i notice that before and after the song the crit rate is not bouble

cas someone explain me this issues?

I think it doubles your crit rate before buffs... but really never checked...

shield p def gets added everytime you actually block an attack, it never shows in the stats, its like this for all classes.
I think hunter adds a certain percentage of crit rate over the base crit rate of the weapon you use. So with a blunt the actual added amount of added crit is lower then a dagger. Focus SA's/crit aug. add up after the buffs.

look at your crit rate without buffs and double it then add buffs and you will have the figure your stats show

but isnt it lame? if an attack its blocked its blocked, p def doesnt matter anymore...
p def of shield should be added to the overall p def as it is an armor piece.. i think its common sense..!

You can block an attack and it can still hurt - same as in real life - it just won't hurt as much.

u can successfully block an attack for 1 dmg as well

Thats called perfect shield defense, and you can make perfect shield defense with a lvl 1 char vs a lvl 85 it you are lucky enough
