Okay hasanyone noticed a substantial difference in dmg reduction from blocks post 77? is this trait viable for anything or just a toss in to make plds happy? If it does do soemthing do we have any numbers to show how much it blocks; is it -x%, or flat number? Im Still only 75 and have no parser, so for those who are capable of running the numbers i'm sure the plds here would appreciate some info.

Thanks

I'm surprised that no testing has been posted on this trait yet, since I think it could potentially be the most important part of this update for PLDs. Anyone have anything on the shield bonus?
