Here is a example with a weapon with 10 strenght / parry negation, hitting a shield that has block strenght of 5, he will reduce the stamina cost of the block by 5(10-5=5)
Shield negation is actually a divisor based on damage and doesn’t use any of the weapon values related to parry stamina. So if you block a 100 damage attack with the kite shield (5 negation value), the stamina drain is 20.
Stamina drain for shields refers to the stamina you lose every second your shield is held up past the initial 5 seconds, which are free.
Thanks! Does anyone know the corresponding values for parrying?
