    Dexterity and max block

    I have read that you should add to Dex just enough to achieve your max block. How do I know what my max block is?

    would the LCS be sufficient in showing when you've reached max block, though?

    i've heard it lies a lot...

    Re: Dexterity and max block

    I'm not sure if this is what you were asking, but every character's max block is 75%. You can see what your current block % is by hovering your mouse over the defense block on your character screen. As far as I know, the LCS is accurate on the listed block %... at least I've never read otherwise.

    How many points of dex to achieve 75% block differs a bit based on character level and block % on the shield you're using, so there's not one easy answer, unfortunately. It's not too tough to calculate, though, especially with the links given above.
