Talk:Block

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There can only be two warrior shield skills. This is obviously not a skill in the game. Shield Stance has a skill video (and is probably what this skill was renamed) and Shield Bash is almost certainly in the SA→G→FT skill video. This page should be bulldozed to make room for the confirmed game mechanic, rather than a skill that has been renamed, imo. A note on Shield Stance saying that it has also been referred to as Block would be more than fine. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 03:24, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Wait, but can't ANYONE block with their bodies? --AmannelleUser Amannelle Me.jpg 03:28, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
I think that would be obstructing, not technically the block mechanic and definitely not the warrior shield skill. -~=Ϛρѧякγ User Sparky, the Tainted guided sig.png (τѧιк) 03:36, 22 July 2010 (UTC)
Uh, I don't think utility skills are weapon-based. We should just remove it, considering we know for a fact it's Shield Stance. Shadowed Ritualist 21:16, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Dunno why this page was deleted[edit]

Something about it being a skill that doesn't exist, I guess. But judging from aegis, there seems to be a mechanic called block. -- Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 05:49, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

At one point it was assumed there was a shield skill called block. But obviously this page should be recreated for the game mechanic. EiveTalk 06:59, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
Block appears to be an applicable effect that "blocks"/nullifies the next attack/projectile(/projectile spell?). What else do we know about it? - Infinite - talk 13:39, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure, but it was known about by at least July 22, 2010. What articles came out somewhat before that time? At least one of them is going to mention blocking and probably will give us some insight as to exactly what it does. –~=Ϛρѧякγ AHHH! (τѧιк) ←♥– 00:56, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Reflect[edit]

Should we put some link to Reflect on there? Reflect and Block are similar mechanics; if someone's looking for skills that can block, and they see skills that can reflect too, they may look there and find the skill they're looking for. ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 20:41, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Shield of Wrath[edit]

Shield of Wrath A focus skill for the Guardian. Should this be in there too? Or does anyone know what this skill really does. ---BlakDoxa 06:52, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Removing (only projectiles)[edit]

I'd like to gather some feedback on whether I can remove (only projectiles) tag from the section under Projectile Destruction. Since it already describes what the follow skills will do it seems unnecessary to include this extra tag. Horus-ra (talk) 15:57, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
