Default Archers

As pointed out by other players and i disagreed at the time but now tested lol

u cant block or parry when an archer lol

u can still resist and now get the vengeful skill which i guess makes up for the blocking

just so u dont waste passive advancement on blocking skills if u plan to go archer

Doug, do you have the Amethyst ivory spear equiped? and if so do you get an added delay? be nice if you didn't as the stat bonuses would be worth the equip if there is no delay penalty.

Maybe the description should be changed then, because the description is that you have a chance to block when auto attacking and using a shield and you have a chance to parry when auto attacking - both should read when auto attacking or auto shooting

ok i asked jeff

and u definetly cant block without having a shield

but u can parry with an archer if u use auto attack

instead of auto shoot

so tht is tht thanks for the input

and thanks to jeff for clearing tht up

though jeff says tht if u have someone in your group who parries and blocks

and they escape battle the client may get :S and assign these to another char

i can almost gaurantee that's what happened doug, because rick and i sat up for an hour trying to reproduce it, and my archer hasn't blocked since.

thanks for finally getting a response from jeff as I thought I was losing it, apparently it was just a glitch lol.

nice to know archers can parry though
