Block Overhaul

As the title would suggest, block overhaul is a simple mod that redesigns the block perk tree as well as block mechanics. The animations will stay the same, but the effects will be different. However, for those of us who love to go pwning with a shield, now is your chance!

Things changed so far:
Increased block effectiveness to 20/40/60/80/100 like weapon leveling. This should make blocking more worthwhile.
Increased Power Bash 5x Damage perk to be 10x. This seemed to be underpowered, so am experimenting to find a better balance.
Increased Disarm chance from 50% to 85%. Again, somewhat unimpressive after all the work to get to the perk.
Decreased stamina costs for bash/power bash.
Redesigned the Block Perk Tree. Let me know what you think; it may need to change a bit more.

Things for later updates:
Implent other weapon perks (i.e. bleeding damage)
Maybe vary individual shield stats possibly user suggestions as well!

I will add more ideas as things progress, and will continue to update when I can!

I am trying to make this mod lore friendly and well balanced, but I am open to ideas and suggestions. Please leave your thoughts!

this is a very good mod to have since I like roleplaying a high defense super strong character! (unfortunately defense and offense are like mixing piss with german chocolate cake, the end result is one delays death and the other comes down to how fast you can kill the opponent!)

I would say if youre going to add a spell resistant perk or change a spell resistant perk, Ide reccomend adding a level to it that made it 100% to all spells. I mean if you think about it, how does fire, ice, or electricity somehow go through solid metal. Also it makes it more badass fighting dragons and holding your ground with your shield infront of you midst getting engulfed in flames.

Shield bash with a chance on hit to knockdown. This would be awesome.

maybe make blocking useful against spell i mean it give u some protection more then without any blocking and weapons can't block spells shield can but only some % of dmg and it should make area behind u safe from dmg from any shield arrows perk should be already from begining it's realy annoying when u keep dying from arrows and u ca't block them cuz this don't give u any effect

I was thinking, is it possible to make it so that power bashes push back low level enemies like a weaker Fus Ro Dah shout? It would be cool and not overpowered as i mean that to happen only to enemies many levels lower than you, the ones that you would kill with 1 weapon swing... Anyways the mod is great, i was looking for a mod like this:D
