40 damage block is based on 'Hardened Skin' spell in Warcraft 3. So actually it isnt coded(or in WE language, it doesnt used trigger).

I have a question. How does the damage block work? I've heard that it's a 40 hp pre-heal when vanguard procs, but im not sure. Was wondering because i can't figure out how well this item goes with blademail. Because, IF it indeed is a 40 hp pre-heal on proc, that would mean that you do actually take the full damage of the hit, but you just get healed before it? which would result in an amazing synergy with blademail, where your enemy takes MORE damage than you actually do. is this the case? help

+1 1 vanguard is simply enough and having 2 is a waste of money which could have been better spent elsewhere

206 By neimi 2011-06-27

the formula is:

1 - (1 - a)* ( 1 - b)* (1 - c)* etc...

the dmg block is as zxcvbnm said. its 91%.

and 2 vangaurds suck. you pay 2k+ gold for a 21% chance to blick 40 dmg, 275 hp, and 6 hp reg.
wouldnt a dagger or a reaver be better?

and vangaurd's stacking didnt change.
its always been the same. it's chance stacks diminishingly while the dmg block doesnt stack.

@203

It blocks all physical damage, so basically everything but magic and pure damage. It also blocks some physical damage spells.

@202
it is not that stupid, since axe needs to fortify himself against creeps. But I personally prefer rushing a poor man's shield early on, then getting a dagger in first 10-15 min alongside with a stout shield and boots of speed. After all of those items vanguard can still be useful for axe.

203 By camelface 2011-04-27

what damage does this block?

tower?
magic?
aoe?

or only physical attack damage?

202 By AllLeftBroken 2010-12-01

They do stack diminishingly.And 2 vanguards is plain stupid,even on axe.The 2.2k gold is much better spent on a dagger instead.

i know that 196 is right about he older versions, but not sure about 6.69 and the hp always stacks... and the only way of knowing is if ppl have seen an axe use 2 vanguards in 6.69

200 By Zxcvbnm11592 2010-11-30

My bad, below post was for #197.

And for ranged heroes, its still 70% or 91% chance (depending on 1 or 2 vanguards, i'm assuming no one's going to get 3 or more) its still only a 20 damage block.

199 By Zxcvbnm11592 2010-11-30

@ 196

If you're counting hp as well, then yes, 275 becomes 550. Oh, and yes, they do stack, check the Library Guide titled Guide to Damage Block by Phoenix.dss

@197 ACTUALUT #196 is right ...

197 By RAC1ST 2010-11-30

@196

Wrong.

1 vanguard: 70% chance to block 40 damage and 275 hp

2 vanguards: 70% chance to block 40 damage and 550 hp

They dont stack.

196 By Zxcvbnm11592 2010-11-30

1 vanguard: 70% chance to block 40 damage
2 vanguard: 70% chance to block 40 damage + (70% of 30%) to block = 91% chance to block still 40 damage.

so the second vanguard increases damage block CHANCE by only 21%, not worth the excessive 2225 gold you pay for it.

195 By STGDS 2010-11-30

does any1 have the actual answer on how this really stacks??? cause im getting so many different answers on this thread?

194 By Cydonia 2010-10-30

@193 both.

193 By Akshay 2010-10-30

i mean 40 damage*

192 By Akshay 2010-10-30

Hey ppl does vanguard block 40 % damage of only creeps or only heros or both
