TwiceDead.1963 Posted June 8, 2018 Share Posted June 8, 2018 So I was wondering (mistake already)... Why is directional blocking hardly a thing? Having all blocks be directional could only increase the tactical depth of the PvP, IMO, so why do you think they went with the design choice of having blocks be omni-directional? Usually, If you want to block a strike, you put the defensive object (often a shield) between you and the opponents strike, so that it hits the object and not you personally. This game though, somehow has the idea that your buttocks are made of steel as long as you raise your armpit above a certain height. The only instance I can think of where this is a thing, is Guardians, specifically Dragon Hunters and their Aegis shenanigans. Otherwise, Blocking is more of a force-field, which makes sense if you think of Chronomancer... That bubble they've got going. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
