Shields

Postby Thilindel » Thu Dec 23, 2004 4:26 am

Perhaps allow all classes shieldblock skill (virtually never see a mage wearing one anyway.)

My suggestions:
Mages - Shieldblock cap at 10
Druids -20
Rogues -who knows..they always dual wield
Bard - who knows, they always hold instrument or dual :P
Clerics - 50
Sub-warriors: prolly not an issue cuz they 2h

It just doesn't make any sense that a druid, for example, can't block with a shield. At least have the shield, itself, innately have a block percent for non-warriors (Diabloesque) Toss an Aegis in and we'll be set :D

My Dodge of 19 has saved this mage on several occassions, in my eyes, any extra chance of living one round longer so I can be rescued is good in my eyes... not that I would wear one of those tacky overglorified defensive dinner plates.

dont see why everyone couldnt get some skill in shield block.

however if we did that, id like to see spell types implemented so that some spells couldnt be cast while wearing a shield... could you imagine making intricate dual hand gestures with a 30 pound shield strapped to one arm and holding an orb in the other while blocking an attack???
