Block/Armor-hit Animations?

It's weird to see my walking wall of an armor-clad tank Dwarf dodge every hit that's a miss. Animations (or even just text, accompanying a visual "hit" with no connecting blow) that suggest the armor and shield your character is wearing is actually absorbing the damage would be fine addition..

Yeah, as a DM I always try to describe the miss based on the attack roll and how the target AC is constructed. If attack roll is below 10, it's a simple miss without effort on the target's part. If the attack roll is 10 or above but lower than AC granted by armor or shield, it's a hit that does no damage. If lower than AC granted by DEX, the target dodges out of the way. And when it matches the target AC, the attack actually lands and deals damage.

There's a general lack of animations in general, like off-hand attacks, which makes combat look a bit strange at times.


Typos happen. More so on the phone.
