I wonder if Gerald Lightseeker will have anything to do with...
Valantia Bladeblinding !!
Inspired by Valeria, heroine in Conan the Barbarian's world. You can see her in the first video below as a resplendent valkyrie
warrior saving Conan by striking his enemy across the face, temporarily blinding him.
This concept of blinding would be another way of blocking enemies. They would fight among themselves before shaking off the effect of the blindness.
Valeria could only strike the lightweight sword again after recharging its magic so she would have to choose wisely when and where to block enemies.
Another kind of blocking could be a sort of cowboy rider to throw the lasso around enemies. You could arrange enemies or move them away for a while before the rope broke.Valkyrie VIDEO 1Valkyrie VIDEO 2
