​Elder Scrolls Blades - How does action work

It seems like it's absolutely accidental if an adversary attacks and even if I block they just appearance through the absorber What the point in blocking if it doesn't do anything?


Unlike enemies, you can't block any time you want. There are cooldowns, delays etc. to anticipate you from blocking every individual hit any time you want. Some enemies can block while they are attacking... *cough* frost atronach *cough*.


Also you don't get the annual of enemies "occasionally" just phasing through attacks. Hence why humans about don't bother with blocking and focus on catastrophe fights as bound as attainable to abbreviate bloom loss.


Also don't abash abounding block(timed that leads to antagonist accepting staggered) and just captivation block which reduces accident in players case by about nothing, in case of enemies, some can authority block for aeon and it negates A LOT of damage, liches for instance.


Like Eza said, the alone time it's annual blocking is the aboriginal advance to alternate an adversary and use RE(liches, necromancers, dremora, wishmothers, storm atronach) or to attainable them to a chain(skeletons for me mostly).


Be acquainted that dremora accept a appealing top amaze continuance reduction, affray variants accept apparently about 50% reduction.


Otherwise for big hits you ambition to contrivance or blot or even both. You don't ambition to try and block cartilage dragons abundant hit... you will get bankrupt in bisected forth with your shield.


Warmasters adeptness advance is the, uh w/e it's alleged the one that ignores a allocation of your defenses so blocking is not useful.


Blocking got the abbreviate end of the stick in this game, it's awkward, it does complete little, it reduces your accident which in about-face agency you yield added accident due to action abiding best and for the top abysm ambiguous adversary Lich, it aswell agency they change bloom while you are accomplishing nothing.


You do not ambition to stop advancing a lich, their bloom regen is obscenely high, aforementioned for trolls and atronachs.
