So I've been grinding exp and made my way up to 122, nearing 123 and it has become nigh impossible to maintain max block. From what I can tell for myself at least as a barb if I don't take Gladiator my highest chance to block possible without heavily overhauling my gear to further stack block would be 64% at ~4075 dex (rw helm +500 and all stats in dex)
This of course comes at a sacrifice of ~10k health or str/damage (don't know how much damage exactly I'm losing by investing nothing into str but I'd bet it is a large amount.... and even still does not afford me max block. So I'm just wondering what others think about block % scaling in it's current form, if there are plans on changing it, am I over rating it or just what other peoples thoughts are since this is a problem I've just been encountering.
Personally I like being tanking, currently running 1.5 mil defense, 12k hp and 16% block. I've had no luck farming one of the 3 shields I need: Canis Venator 3% block, The Ancients' Legacy 3% block or Satan's Dark Delight 4% block. Stuck using a T6 Invictus 1% block. Dreaming of 20K hp 1.5-2 mil defense and 75% block..... Still my gears got a long way to go but I'm fairly happy with how far its come and some of my crafts.
Happy to hear anyone elses thoughts on block %, struggles with max block or ideas to help reach/maintain it at 125
