    First of all sorcs have the lowest bloack rate and paladins have the highest. as for blocking. if it says 54% it means u have a 54% chane to black anytype of attack, but it only plays the blocking motion for ranged attacks.

    Yeah i know that but what does blocking do? does it absorb some damage does it disregard a blocked attack does it reduce damage for a blocked attack?

    An attack that is successfully blocked does no damage at all. This is why sigons guard and rare shields with "enhanced blocking" are useful to have around. Also, the paladin's "holy shield" skill is great for increasing the blocking percentage of normal shields to the functional max of 75% blocking. Using holy shield on sigons guard is relatively pointless (there's also an increase in defence from the skill... but I'll lay off that little tirade of mine for now) since sigons is already like 74% for paladins.

    Ok Thanks
    since there is a max 75% chance to block what do you think would work best for a amazon? sigons+twitchthroe which would give you 94% but since theres the max it would only be 75% or should i go for high AC armor?
