I'm a master pikeman; been one for about a week. I was curious what 
Center of Being does for a master pikeman. I didn't find anything to 
explain it in the FAQ, so I did a test. I hope some of you find this useful.


The relevant skill mods are:

+115 Block

+115 Polearm Center of Being Efficacy

+  25 Ranged Defense


The test:

    * I dueled a rifleman at 20m.

    * He took 200 shots at me: 100 while center of being was on, 100 while center of being was off.

    * No specials were used by him just autofire.

    * Both of us were standing.

    * I recorded misses and the damage numbers above my head. 
Later i checked the combat log to denote the hits as hits with or without counterattack.

Some other relevant assumptions:

    * Counterattack in the combat log means block.

    * Block means that damage from the hit is reduced 50%.



    * CoB does nothing to make you harder to hit.

    * CoB doubles your chances of executing a block. In fact, at master, 
you block almost every hit.

   Off        19                                   40                              41




I don't know how much of the results are due to CoB, block, and ranged defense mods. 
I just know that in the combination described above these are the likely outcomes.
