We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Shields (Diablo II)

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Shields provide different block percentages for different classes. The Druid, Necromancer and Sorceress have the lowest block chance, their base block being 20% with the worst shield. The Amazon, Assassin and Barbarian, being melee-classes have a higher block chance, 25%. The Paladin, master of using the shield, has the highest base block with a shield, 30%.

All shield block values differ by this amount. The Paladin will always get 10% higher block chance than a Druid if they both use the same shield.
