No this is a log from maybe 20(?) years ago or something. The block skill in the log was something only the Knights had at that time, and just like you said it was really powerful. Most likely too powerful, which is why it was replaced a long time ago by the block skill that exists today. It's much less powerful than the one you see in the log though, and not exclusive to knights as anyone can learn the "block" skill in public adventurer's guilds.

Ahh, thanks for clarifying that! Curious, why would you take an ability specific to a guild and make it available to anyone? Wouldn't that ruin the flavor of the guild and its uniqueness?

Therein lies the essence of many decisions made over time. If the goodies had something completely unfair it was better to keep the guild in question open and give everyone the same ability. If baddies had some advantage, the solution was to close the guild and flip off anyone complaining.

Prove me wrong.
Lesser guilds deserve their suffering, you feel unjustly nerfed and want to be restored to your rightful glory... huh. I guess you're Genesis Hitler then. It feels so sweet to say this.. Fuck you, Hitler.

Wow, that was a pretty big generalisation! I disagree in all sorts of ways, but I am not going to bite. At least not in this thread. So, please, don't derail this thread into the age-old discussion about good vs evil and supposedly goodie or evil-biased wizards. If you really want to go over that again, I think it's better to start another thread about it. Preferably in the flames section since that's where I'll end up having to put it in the end anyway. Save me the trouble? :)
