Change shield protections into dmgreduction% when blocking
Higher tier shield = higher dmgreduction% when blocking, with different % for each damage type

Would make blocking with shield a playstyle, instead of holding down mouse1 while getting free protections for no effort

Currently its impossible to lose a 1v1 melee fight with 1h+shield against any other weapon no matter what the enemy does, its so strong even mages prefer using boneset+1hshield over robes because with shield they autowin in melee too

The autowin part is overstated, the rest is accurate.

Very good suggestion, this would promote skillful play. Also the shield can be enchanted so basically you get +3-4 protections back for slashing, which most people use.

In New Dawn, its main purpose is to be a convenience feature.

+1 do something to fix 1h+shield, should be a defensive thing when you block, shouldn't do fuck all if you're not blocking
