    Well i put on some gear that gave me +block but no shield and it still showed 0 block in my UI and out of about 100 hits i didnt see anything that blocked in my logs. Not sure how else people are getting the block without a shield.

    Was something I had read on the forums so I take it with a grain of salt and thanks for checking it out ingame (stuck at work), so I will take your testing as truth (cause it wouldnt make sense to block w/o a shield.

    Wonder if you could get enough parry if it would be worthwhile. But then why not go Paragon

    I can confirm the no block happening w/o a shield thing too, at least on a Champ/Pally.

    I dumped 5 points into the +block skill and threw on some +block gear and after 30 mins of fights nothing ever got block. Pally skill retaliate (or w/e it's called never went off).

    Changed out to a sword and board and block was going off left and right. After looking over the other souls and champ soul again I do not see anything that would lead me to belive that blocking with a 2Hander is possible. (PvE anyway).

    With all the shield skills the pally has, I think it's probably a poor choice to match to a Champ. Wondering if one of the other defensive souls that will generate hate coupled with a soul that buffs parry.....but like Tristerin said...then why not go Paragon.

    I can see Champ as becoming the leader of an assist train in pvp...

    Bull Rush with a 3 sec stun.
    Battlefield Intimidation 6 sec root with ae fear.
    Titan's Strike 5s stun plus ae.
    Cornered Beast 8s ae with cc immunity.

    If you can live long enough...

    If you want to 2h tank go justicar. Clerics can only use bucklers, and the stat allocation for spellpower on 2hers does more to increase parry/dodge than the increased armor on a buckler would as far as survivability. Or at least that's how it was explained to me.

    Yeah I saw a 2H with block too, it has to be a bug.
