[0.5.0|Warrior|YAVP] Shield is OP
« on: November 14, 2019, 21:36 »

Felt like playing this the other day, for no particular reason.  Not a whole lot to report about this run, except that I just realized that having a shield makes the whole thing trivial!  The shield was blocking something like 95% of all hits, and I hardly took any damage for the whole game.  If I recall correctly from the original Diablo, there's supposed to be a percentage chance of the shield blocking damage, and after each successful block, there's a delay before it can block again.  In this game, the chance of blocking is way too high, and there doesn't seem to be any delay; in fact, in some cases, I was surrounded and blocking multiple hits simultaneously!

Congrats on your victory.

Warrior starts with 30% chance to block and gets +1% per Dex (so 50% with starting 20 Dex in total). Also blocking chance is affected by character level and monster level ( clvl - mlvl ) * 2%. So you had 100% blocking against most of the enemies, blocking is OP.

P.S. Actually there is a bug with blocking speed: everyone blocks as fast as Warrior do. Another DiabloRL blocking feature is being able to block if not recovering after hit (anytime while attacking, casting or moving).
