Patch
Added in 2.3.0 / 1.13.2

Returns the percentage of damage blocked by your shield.

damageReduction = GetShieldBlock()

Returns

damageReduction 
number - the percentage of damage reduced your shield


Example

/dump GetShieldBlock()

[0]=31

This means that your shield blocks 31% of damage. This matches the in-game tooltip:

"Your block stops 31% of incoming damage."

Notes

All blocked attacks are reduced by 30%. It can be increased to 31% by a +1% Shield Block Value meta-gem. (e.g.  [Eternal Shadowspirit Diamond])
