Does anyone know of this? I know in Skyrim and games like Chivalry, shields are essentially the hard-counter against arrows. While I would love the perk of being able to block every arrow so that I can have the feeling of "standing in the line of fire" as a tank, I can imagine it would be very frustrating to archers. Is this a thing? Will it reduce stamina or something when blocking arrows even though that doesn't make much sense? I would understand it seeing as if a shield can block an infinite amount of arrows I feel like shields would be a bit overpowered.

Blocking will consume stamina, so you won't be able to hold the block forever. As far as shields blocking arrows, I can't think of a reason they wouldn't have this mechanic

I agree block defiantly does require stamina and blocking arrows as a result doesn't seem overpowered

With the soft lock system I don't think you can stand in the line of fire. However I can see one of the abilities on a tanky skill line being some sort of grab the current attack and direct it towards u

Stamina will drop when you block attacks/arrows, so you can't block for eternity. You could build a nice Stamina bar if you want to block the arrows for longer, aswell as Health if you're going for tank.

I would love for tanks to have an actual taunt in PvP. Maybe not a threat generation type of thing, but just something to force people to attack them for 3 seconds or something like that. Would keep the feel from going from PvE to PvP for any that do that.

The inside dungeons article has confirmed there will be taunts.
