DS wiki and DS main site has both different info in taunt Skill Table, so which one is right one? or both together?

Weird. Is it only me, or does the seeker has a chance of blocking, even if not taunting? How big a chance, and does it only apply to your target (is there a chance at all?)

Good question Sparrisen. What about when you use taunt, does it have increased chance to block against anyone?

Both seem to be wrong. Here's the Taunt from Prelude.pkg (first line is from lvl1 and second from lvl12):

Code:
<level duration="1.8" percentMovementSpeedBonus="0.5" shieldBlockChanceBonus="0.50" shieldDamageAbsorbBonus="20" percentMovementSpeedPenalty="0.70" range="4"/>

<level duration="4.0" percentMovementSpeedBonus="0.5" shieldBlockChanceBonus="0.50" shieldDamageAbsorbBonus="20" percentMovementSpeedPenalty="0.70" range="10"/>


You'll notice that only the duration and range change, the shield block stays the same.


Also I think Seeker does have a chance of blocking even without Taunt, but couldn't find any data to prove that now.

Well, thats weird, since a taunting seeker blocks attacks like crazy.

I've always found that blocking is rare in taunt. Atleast I don't notice any blocking. But what I do notice is the 20 damage reduction. Maybe there isn't anything to block when there is 40% + 20 dmg reduction. Tongue

Seeker does block even without Taunt. If I remember correctly, it only blocks if you attack from the shield's general direction.

Bots are expert in blocking when they Taunt. I don't know what they do differently, but I've never been quite as successful with Taunt blocking as the bots are.

what i noticed is that the shield blocks more if you stand and normaly you stand only if you taunt someone or you attack to the enamy with the shield side there you have a good chance maybe 1/6 chance to block a hit, with taunt its more a 90% chance because your shield is in the front of you but it deals mostly 1/2 dmg so you can die with"0" damge and Bone Blades hurts you normaly with there bleed effeckt

Block only works if you don't move.

That is true for block without Taunt also. I think the chance is something like 25 % without Taunt.

If I recall correctly damage reduction works even if you move. Not sure now that I think about it.
