Are the descriptions on this skill and tactic correct? If so with a shield block parry chance could have an added 50% chance. Seems overpowered, or does it mean if you had 10% parry and blocked then used the skill you would get 15% parry instead of 60%?

If it is the formula that would add up to 60% in my example then wouldn’t a chosen who dumps renown into block and parry be pretty immune to all frontal attacks?

Suppression gives you 25% parry
Mixed Defenses gives you 25% parry if you block
together they give you 50% parry if both are up

Parry works against melee attack and guard damage

So, i finally got a level 25 chosen and got both the tactic and the skill.

The way these work is as follows, the tactic is an added 25%, but the suppression skill is not, it is a 1.25 multiple of your current parry. So if you have 10 parry, suppression will raise it to 12.5. Mixed Defense would raise it to 35%.

No, they are additive. Each one gives you +25% parry rate.

Yes you are correct. I just checked again. Must of been a UI bug, restart issue or something, suppression didn't add in before, but now it is.
