I'm working on a character that can solo peerless and all that jazz. Sampire..I use Spirit Speak and Curse weapon (mixed with pots) instead of healing. Right now my Bushido and Parry are at 110. My chance of blocking is (according to stratics) 30 with a one handed weapon or 34 with a two handed weapon. Now if I go up to 120 in both (not to mention swords) it's going to be quite expensive...I plugged 120 parry and bushi into the calculator and it gives me a 35% chance to block with a one handed and a 40% chance with a two handed. I don't believe that even an extra 6% chance is worth as much as it would cost in gold and in skill points. Am I missing something here? Is there a benefit of going all the way to 120 in either of these besides sayings that you're a legendary shieldsman or samarai?
