Future Title Idea - Shields
I think it would be nice if there were a title for shields, that when having a shield equipped, adds to a passive bonus to resistances.
Would be cool to see more "tank" play styles being used. It would obviously come at the cost of some damage, as it would take up a title slot and only be active when you had a shield out, but would help satisfy those who wish to play a beefier build, that would rather stay in the fray of battle longer. Could add more diversity to the game, with only the addition of a title.

I have heard a few people mention they wish darkfall had a true tank role, this is the closest solution to this I can think of without adding lots of work.

I'd rather they'd increase the effectiveness of blocking rather than just "durr more protections". Something along the line "Perfect block now reduce even more damage with a shield and blocking overall cost less stam blabla percentage".

I'm fine to boost 1h weapons + shield at the expence of 2h melee + magic + archery.

But if they will do it a change token for a title (like race change) is needed, is a bit too much waiting 2 months everytime they add or change something.

Pretty much agree with everything you said.

Would be nice if you could deflect projectiles ping pong style and send them back to the attacker
