I noticed there is no priest shields with block chance, I know most healers just reforge out of block chance however clerics and especially Templars do not due to shield ally ability. Is this intentional as ToV was the same way for the most part until HKC was brought in. Those shields had block chance on them.

Please consider adding block chance to priest shields.

I know still doesn't change the fact block seems to be intentionally left out on priest shields every time and only put on after we go live.

Oh, I don't disagree that it needs to be added. And I do wonder why it is left out every single time.. only to be added later. There is no good reason NOT to have block on priest shields.. even scout shields get block... and clerics actually 'need' block on their shields if they want shield ally to be useful.

No, Clerics need protection on their shield (which it has) for shield ally to function.

The blue "Block chance" stat only increases the effectiveness of the protection value. So instead of the lootbot not putting block chance on bucklers (doesn't fit with the total stat allowance compared to symbols) and then the devs having to add it manually later, they can just have the bucklers have a slightly higher protection value from the start instead and be done with it.
