    the ones who need protection
    have to equip a shield.
    not many reach perfection
    in how to deal with it.
    a healer - doesn't matter
    how high will be their rank -
    will never use it better
    than any common tank.

    purpose: compare the shield block rate in aeore healers and sigel knights with and without buffs when attacked from the back and from the front.

    characters: three characters were used for the test: a level 99 iss enchanter (dwarf) equipped with a bow and two targets - level 99 elves: an aeore healer (38 con) and a sigel knight (82 con).

    equipment: the dwarf only had a [​IMG] recurve thorne bow, while the elves were only equipped with a [​IMG] vesper shield.

    test conditions: all characters were without buffs. only [​IMG] knight's harmony was used for the corresponding tests.

    test 1: in the first test we were shooting at the tank from the back.

    test 2: in the second test we were shooting at the tank from the front.

    test 3: in the third test we were shooting at the healer from the back.

    test 4: in the fourth test we were shooting at the healer from the front.

    test 5: in the fifth test we were shooting at the tank from the back, the tank being under the [​IMG] knight's harmony buff.

    test 6: in the sixth test we were shooting at the tank from the front, the tank being under the [​IMG] knight's harmony buff.

    test 7: in the seventh test we were shooting at the healer from the back, the healer being under the [​IMG] knight's harmony buff.

    test 8: in the eight test we were shooting at the healer from the front with the healer, the healer being under the [​IMG] knight's harmony buff.

    for each test, we recorded 1,000 results, excluding misses (only successful shield blocking or its absence).

    results:

    tank (back) tank (front) healer (back) healer (front) tank (back + buff) tank (front + buff) healer (back + buff) healer (front + buff)
    block chance 68.1% 72.3% 0% 24.3% 89.8% 94.1% 0% 28.1%

    the test results are also presented in the chart below:
    [​IMG]
    conclusion: the chart makes it clear that the chance of successful shield blocking is higher under the [​IMG] knight's harmony buff. however, this is not true for the case when an aeore healer is attacked from the back: healers have almost no chance of being protected by a shield, in contrast to tanks, who have a significant shield block bonus regardless of where the attack comes from.[/b]
