Blocking is a combat skill that determines your effectiveness using a shield.
When wielding a shield a character has a chance to "block." The chance of blocking is calculated at roughly a third of your skill so at GM Blocking skill you will have around 30% chance to successfully block.
Affect[edit | edit source]
A successful block provides the wearer of the shield with defence bonus the shield provides.
Example: If a player has a defence of 35 from armor and is wearing a shield that provides 10 defence. Upon successfully using the blocking skill the users defence will be 35+10 for against the incoming attack.
