          Are you thinking about normal gameplay or the class war?

          I am not a mage but I think anyone will tell you that no pdef would be a bad idea except for the class war v other mages. The physical defense effect is constant, while block is intermittent. Without pdef you would have no chance against archers or knights your own level!

          In pvp (except v mages), mpds, cata, etc, you will find many fights a lot harder! Against other mages pdef is not needed so high block is a good idea!

          Don't take my word for it. Try using a block astral instead of a pdef one if you have a spare + temporarily change your pdef gems to block ones and you will very quickly see that pdef is essential in normal gameplay. Removing either pdef gems, or your pdef astral is a non starter except for the CW

          Enjoy the game

              High block no pdef? Knights + archers eat you for 3 meals.

                  PDEF = Improves your defences. Works '100%' of the time as long as equipped.
                  Block = Reduces a little damage. Works only when you're lucky.

                  Seems pretty obvious to me.

                    Youd would need like 5k block to hit 90% block rate. Im a block knight so i use loads of block hp pdef mdef being worked on. With out enhanced block block is only ok id say youd be good with say 2k to 2500 block. Block mages with pdef scare me lol

                    Ive hit high block mages with qte+rune boost enhanced delphic and it turns in to a oh shi... situation real fast. seeing all those blue numbers means im prob a dead block knight lol

                    Im very interesting to fight as summoned mob lol I can win every time thanks to runes but um i best be front row or the party is likely screwed i need to deal with my clone fast if not its game over. That is game over every single time essentially with out fail.

                      Block fires at a fixxed rate on percents high block score = high percent chance to block. But no pdef = bad idea

                        That was exactly my point. PDEF always works, as long as equipped. Block is a game of chance.

                        A Mage should have both (Once they're L60 and above) but if for whatever reason one has to choose between one or the other, PDEF is without question the better option.

                            This is the worst idea in the history of magekind (EXCEPT IN CW)
                            It is only viable in cw ... that's it.

                              Why would you remove the one that greatly works for mages against patk classes? You already have low hp then you will still remove pdef hahaha yummy for archers and knights. Goodluck! Even spamming AOE won't save mages without pdef.
