    Blocking while two-handing a weapon.

    Believe it or not, I've actually never done this before lol. I hardly ever two hand my weapons so I can have parrying as a constant option.

    How effective is blocking with a two handed weapon?

    It obviously isn't as effective as a shield, but it can save your life. Ultra-greatswords are the best weapons for blocking IIRC.

    It really isn't customed for me to block with a weapon, but I can vouch that it is a life saver at times. Usually, if you attack then backaway and block, the worst that can happen is you take some damage and get guard broken, but a block can usually sustain 1 hit before being broken. The problem, of course, will be dealing with combo attacks.

    It really is nothing amazing, unless you are using a UGS, which is surprisingly decent at it.

    As effective as the stability and % defense of the weapon.

    A note about blocking with a two handed weapon: Most weapons have crappy hit resistance, but since you're holding it with both hands it's actually higher than it looks on the stat screen.
