    Shields and Critical Strike Suggestion

    How about, since the mobs have crit ability now, to make tanks viable or less affected by the RNG, we introduce to shields the ability to decrease either, 1. Crit damage received, OR 2. Chance to block critical strikes!

    So the stronger the shield the higher the % chance to block critical strike, and maybe have unique or legendary shields with really awesome like 75% chance to block critical strikes.

    NOTICE: I am NOT suggesting this be tied to the shield SKILL but rather shield ITEMS in general, meaning anyone holding a shield could benefit from the mod.

    That be cool

    Ok thx.

    I like the idea of being able to block crits a lot in general but I'm not convinced that shield holding needs any additional buffs. You are already getting a very nice chunk of armor plus stats from the shield - it doesn't feel like it needs another advantage.

    It could be an interesting way to buff the shield skill a bit, though. Of course, non-shield tanks may not appreciate that...

    That would be awesome Aionlasting. I think you might want to also include abilities that allow for shield like effects. So say staff use would have something added into the defensive buff side that would allow for crit inclusion as well.
    And that's why I always say, 'Shumshumschilpiddydah!

    Yea, I simply neglected to think about staff but my main point was basically that this be for 'tanky' sort of items so if staff is a tank type item then I see no problem having a mod that does the same for staffs!

    If you think about it / is a smart person.

    You go Staff/Shield.

    Staff has physical damage immunity. Shield has elemental damage immunity.
    No crits can affect you while they are running.
    On top of this staff has not 1 but 2 abilities that can reduce damage taken by 40 and 45%. Rotate those two abilities with the immunities.
    Have all the damage mitigation mods going (shield team is a great one and there's also a permanent mod which just reduce it while shield is active).

    I had great success in a recent incursion in to GK with this setup.
    I died a few times in the beginning (but I have never been there so I chalk that up to scruberino pulling). Overall it went smooth with no wipes. A few deaths here and there when I lost aggro because.. The damage dealers had insane damage and Ii only had a semi-decent tank set.

    Overall I believe that the Critical Hits was introduced to put a stop to non-tank setups in dungeons. I don't believe it is executed with thought tho as a lvl 120 mob (and we will be facing those) will have 25% chance top-world and 30% chance in dungeons to crit which seems fairly excessive and at that point I really hope that specializations will play a role in reducing chances of crits otherwise it will be a battle to do dungeons and world content.

    Can the game differentiate between being hit in front vs being hit in back? If possible shield could just remove all chance to be crit from front while leaving the chance for back crit the same.

    As far as I know, there is nothing in game about this. Yet.
