P.S. I would love an adminstrator to read this and answer plz

first time critical block stopped working i thought that it was just a bug. But now, i realiaze that whenever i'm fighting and the boss hit critical, Im the only wizard in the group whose critical block doesnt work. I'm just fighting with my friend right as im writing this, and the boss hit both of us and mine critical block DID NOT work again. we have the same stats though: 30 block against all school. so PLZZZZZZZ fix this :(

Also, i bought an amulet at the bazaar that gives me storm lord (for level 52 and up only). i was level 56 when i bought it, But still couldnt use it when it came in hand while i was battling. i was VERY UPSET, because i paid around 15,000 GOLD to buy it. and i barely sold it back for 5,000 gold. Plz KI, fix this kind of problems as it can be very VERY frustrating.

Thank you!

Um the first thing is 30% is bad resistant so probably wont work and storm takes 7 pips doesnt matter if power pips

Hey doudjy. With a critical block rating of 30, that works out to about a 7.5% chance to block critical. That isn't much of a chance. I think your friend got lucky and you didn't. On the storm lord amulet, does it not work, or did you just not realize that as a pyromancer you cannot use power pips with it (which means that all seven pips slots have to be filled whether they are power pips or not in order to fire that bad boy off)?

1. Dude, it's like a accuracy on a spell, it can fizzle. 30% doesn't guarantee success at all, they got lucky. You did not.

2. You have to equip it just like anything else. And since you aren't storm type, your fire type, you have to wait till you get 7 pips. Power pips dont boost other schools for you.

your critical block only works sometimes more or less depending on how much critical block rating you have. if you changed your clothing in wizard101 you may have lost some of your critical block percentage.

i think i once read this is how it works, basically if you have 60 block and they have 60 critical, you will block all of his criticals, but if you have a 30 critical and he has 60, you will block half, but if they have the crafted armor, then they have about 150, of about 1/3 critical rating, which most people actually have now, so that may be why you are blocking way less criticals
