I saw the calculation for block before but here is summary of it.

Block basically means your block chance against attack. Your block chance decrease if enemy has high Block penetration. You need a shield to for block chance to work or Priest Stone Skin buff. Tank class like Peltasta has attribute to use Guard by pressing C to increase Block by 100+(not 100% chance) but you are unable to attack or use skills or move.

Block Rate is used in Block calculation. If you notice, most shield has Block Rate of 1. Shield with block rate 2 is rare but I heard there was a bug where Block rate 2 will still calculate as 1, not sure. Try to equip and remove shield. If you remove shield, Block will be removed from your stat screen. So, minimum requirement to use block is by equipping shield.

Block chance increase with character level, CON and block rate.

Block penetration is to reduce target's block chance.

Hope this helps. :no1:

How much block penetration do I need to actually hit those full CON mage/clerics? Fucking hell.
