I just wish there was something that I can do to set my character to attempt blocking first before dodging so I can reserve my dodge tokens for things like zombie grabs, and in the Dark Skies mod when I keep getting Slammed into by athlethic strays.
You try to block attack from zombie and fail. You lack time to dodge. You receive 45 cutting damage. You die.
The first mistake is not trying to block first, but apparently fighting naked or lacking protection, against a type of zombie that can instakill you with a rather common move.
Yep, use a gun. Problem solved.
