    No wonder I feel so squishy. Block reduction is not working correctly. When a mob hits me for 1000 and I block it with a 65% reduction, why is it doing 700 damage? No its not a resistance attack or issue. Something is very broken with this formula or the tooltip needs to accurately tell us how it works. I tested it in a couple of different maps; old new and PW. Blocked hits are not being reduced by the amount they should be.

    I invite people to test this for themselves and report here and to support so we can get this fixed.

    Block reduction is no more , it is now block chances. Also this is why i use book now , its either kill it or be killed by it. All monsters here have high damage even the OP players like you on Tegan having problems surviving...

    Yes had the same problem. I equipped just for test 77% armour, 7500 hp, 1k resistance, 80% block rate and 66% block reduction.
    I died in 4-5 seconds. The mobs gave me about 400 dmg with quiver and about 250-300 with shield when I blocked. Using a shield is useless for the moment, because you still feel very weak. The mobs eat through your hp so easy, even through 77% armour (the ones that attack with physical dmg).

    So I decided to use quiver. But I noticed another strange thing. I used the dragan shoulders (level 40), without a shield and I reduced about 70% of the damage, when I was lucky enough to block, even though I should have reduced about 10-15% of the damage. So it works in reverse sometimes, I think the block is definitely bugged.

    Also now everyone can easily have 80% block, I don't know if that's so good for pvp. What's the point in searching for an awesome 3:1 shield if everyone can have 80% with a blue shield and dragan set?
    Low levels can have 80% with an upgraded green only, now that I think of it :D

    Yes the names have been changed to protect the innocent. It should still function as it has in the past but it definitely does not regardless of inappropriate label.



    My base damage was on a constant 400-400

    Please use the correct formula BP :) (Dmg*(1-reduction%, not Dmg*(reduction%)

    Well done Ultra and thanks for the screenshots. So, all we need to do now is find a shield with max block and ZERO reduction until they fix it:p.

    Sounds like wolf shield right now is the best shield thanks to the bugs.....

    My DK felt more survivable without the 50%/-5% block talent, and my dwarf with the wolf shield (and also without the block talent) felt really survivable. I wonder if this was why... will switch my DK to his wolf shield later tonight.

    I think the info is in 3 threads now and i appreciate the Mods tolerance on that. I also know there are many that read multiple language sections of the forum and hopefully have started similar threads in the own language. As important as this is, I feel like im spamming already. I did add it to the main feedback thread and created this one, so hoping the fire spreads and our own moderators and other players take up the fight. This is a critical error that compounds based on the modifications to overall defense and higher mob damage. If they don't understand that and repair it soon it will not only have long lasting effects to direct gameplay in general, but also from many many other aspects. I'll leave it at that for interpretiation as I don't want to bang a broken drum.

    I have black Squire shoulders... If you ever block it should be for almost no damage.

    Seems like someone needs to upgrade a pair til you get hight block rate.

    Hello @Miragegrc ,

    This issue was fixed with Hotfix 2 to R155.

    I am going to close this thread since the issue was resolved to avoid further confusion.
