Alistair Plugins: Blocking

Introduction

This plugin introduces what I call “Block Rate” and “Block Reduction”. The Block Rate determines the likeliness of blocking an incoming attack. Blocking an attack basically means negating some of the incoming damage altogether. You don’t necessarily need to equip a shield to block damage. Every actor has a block rate that is (by default) based on their DEF and AGI params. Of course you can change the formula or use notetags to change the Block Rate of a specific actor.

Everytime a block occurs the “Block Reduction” comes into play. This value determines the amount of damage that will be blocked. By default, this is a flat percentage (30%) but you can also use a formula or change the Block Reduction Percentage for each actor individually.

You can use this plugin with Yanfly’s Status Menu! If you want to add the Block Rate and Block Reduction to the Attributes List just use “PhyBlockRate”, “MagBlockRate”, “CerBlockRate” and “blockReduction”.
