A Bug?[edit]

I went up against a person with deflect arrows activated, and every single one of my attacks hit (with a bow, obviously). I took a closer look and realized my bow had an icy bowstring. is it a bug that "elemental bows" seem to ignore this skill, wheras normal "piercing damage" bows take the effect? I'm testing it again, but I could use confermation on this. 00:03, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Most likely pure luck. Same as it's happened for me quite a few times that Guardian doesn't block one single attack. It sucks when it happens, though. — Galil Talk page 00:05, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
Interesting. I'll run some more tests on this, just to be safe though, see if it was. I'm not quite sure about my "pure luck", I have a maxed unlucky title, and I know how to use it. 04:25, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
wait wait wait... you mean to tell me someone actually used this skill? 04:24, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Did said person attack after useing this skill? because it is a stance it doesnt have a casting time. its not uncommon for people to use it while their char is exectuting an attack thus automatically cancel it out. ( 07:28, 22 February 2008 (UTC))

New Meta?[edit]

I saw this used in TA once on a necromancer, and I thought that now with Lingering Curse necros, the high Soul Reaping attribute isn't needed much anymore, so you can spec a decent 10 into tactics for this skill, get a shield bonus, and be pretty well protected from all of the R/W Burning Arrow rangers out there now. Any thoughts on this? 04:27, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

I think this skill is nice in arenas to block d-shot for rezz signet. maybe it will see some use these days -- 16:00, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Different Skill Icon?[edit]

I was browsing through the high res warrior skills when I found the one for this skill different Deflect Arrows (large).jpg is the high res from the beta test or was it changed at a later date? 16:08, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Looks like there was a practical use for Elite Gladiator armor... -/- Discuss 18:29, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Anomaly in description[edit]

"whenever you block a projectile" A projectile 'what'? Does anyone know if this can block projectiles such as Flare? (Xu Davella 13:24, 26 February 2010 (UTC))
