A few quick questions?
 
Hi, I have a few questions for you guys:

1. Can you block while using an ability or casting? Say blocking while doing a whirlwind for example?

2. Do ‘when hit’ procs trigger when you block or parry? Or only when you take a normal damaging hit?

3. How are skeleton pets viable at low level? Do they get a lot stronger later?

4. Is there any gear that buffs pets? +Pet HP, or +Pet defense modifiers?

5. Is it possible to speed run a town by going straight to bottom level and killing the Purple boss? Or is there a set number of required quests you must do before you can save the town?

Thanks!

There is a certain number of quests you have to complete in order to save town.
Besides, speed running a town will do you no good, as some quests give you items, like sets or artifacts.

I don't think you can.

They are viable at lower levels, but they need constant skill point investment to keep them around your level. In contrast, the Raise Dead spell allows you to raise monsters of any level.

Nope, but the necromancer has spells that do that, and the warlock has demon mastery for demons which buffs their damage output.

Evander basically covered this one. The only thing that is required to save a town is to finish the non-optional quests. A few of those might be kiling bosses, but they may very well not be on the bottom floor. Also, more mandatory quests may be generated as you go.

1) If you mean the normal block, then yes. The normal defense types still work properly when doing something.

2) No, you have to actually get hit.

Very cool thanks for the info Shadow.

I was thinking about experimenting with a passive proc based character. One who wears only gear with 'when hit' procs, and lets himself get beat up on in order to spam procs. All the while spamming heals and AoE debuffs. I tried a similar build in Titan Quest and it was a fun experiment but not very strong. I'm guessing it won't be very strong here either, but worth a shot for fun!
