MP Absorb: does not work with Blood Magic or Manashield. it used to work with Blood Magic in the early days of DQ. MP Absorb only works when your Character gets hit. because BM already converted your MP to HP, any MP from MPA isn’t added to the HP Pool for BM. Manashield is protecting your Character from attacks, so until your Shield goes down, no MPA.
Block: can only be rolled on your OH Weapon with Angelite (chance for Normal or Epic Block), Topaz (choose one of 6 Epic affixes), Sapphire (randomly change from one Normal or Epic affix to another), Obsidian (choice of Crystal affix), or Laramar (randomly change all Normal & Epic affixes on an item to another Normal or Epic affix). Block can be found on a few other Warrior items except for Neck items. can not be rolled on Pets.
Coat Weapon: I always felt it either only lasted for one hit/cast spell or a few hits when I used it. the Rogue Talent Veil extends the duration of Coat Weapon while Stealth Skill is active. you can go over cap when Coat Weapon is active, if you put on some extra Crit Chance & Elemental Crit.
Increasing the Rank of another Classes Skills or Talents: Skills . Talents . Skills Ranks of other Classes can be increased by using +All Skills affixes or Myth Stones. this can get you up to +10, maybe +12. +10 Epic Skill affixes of other Classes Skills can be put on Pets. Eternal Pets would double affix values. so normally you could get up to +20 in another Classes Skill, +30 if the Pet is Eternal. there are some exceptions. the Wizard Cerebral Vortex items have +10 Torrent on each item, even though Torrent is a Warrior Skill. the only item another Classes Talents can be placed on are Pets. but Talents for one Class will not work for other Classes.
Stealth: it has a long Cool Down and short duration. the doubled Dodge can go over Cap, so this works well with Pathfinder Set. there are Perma Stealth Builds. you need Stealth 40, Epiphany Set (5), and +75% Cool Down. obviously, this can only work for Rogues. it doesn’t mean you will never die with this Build, but with practice, you could go through a few Maps before dying once.
Popularity: it has been a few years since the last big update, but there is one on the way soon. also, you know how some players are, they master a game and then move on to another. players who like coming up with ideas to Craft the endless possibilities are the ones still playing DQ! other players are into the PVP part of the game, and others are challenged by how far they can Climb Floors.
