In this experiment a Shield Defense basic rate has been tested for all the races. Attacker: Human – Warrior, 1 lvl, without any buffs. Equipment: Long Sword Target: 1 lvl character of each race, without any buffs. Equipment: Leather Shield During this experiment, an attacker made 1.000 strokes on each target. A Shield Defense basic rate has been counted. The results are stated below: Character CON Rate Dwarf 45 34,6% Human (Warrior) 43 32,8% Human (Wizard) 27 20,4% Elf (Warrior) 36 27,9% Elf (Wizard) 25 18,9% Dark Elf (Warrior) 32 24,7% Dark Elf (Wizard) 24 18,7% Orc (Warrior) 47 35,7% Orc (Wizard) 31 23,4% Moreover, we have also tested Shield Defense basic rate for a Dwarf with different CON stats: 0, 1 and 99. About several hundred strokes were done for each target. The results are stated in the second table: CON Rate 0 0% 1 7% 99 83% Summary: as it can be seen from the test, for the characters without any skills, buffs or equipment, a Shield Defense rate depends on a “Defense Rate 20.00”, which is a Leather Shield item parameter, and CON stat. A Defense Rate item parameter can be considered as Shield Defense basic rate for a character, regardless its race. This parameter works only when the shield is equipped. The final rate is counted as a formula, the inputs of which are Defense rate and CON stat combination.
