    Can't believe I just went thru 7 pages and no mention of (ill punch myself if I missed it so u don't have to)... REFLECT! Imagine a faith based spell that allowed a parry type mechanic to reflect back offensive spells if executed skillfully. If reflected, the original caster would certainly have their chance to evade eating their own spell if quick enough. Might add some more depth to magic in terms of pvp combat tactics

    Hear me out on this one. WotG/Force do that in a sense already. I've actually had a few rare instances where a CSS or a WDB go to the side or even reflect back at the host. The problem is that the spell is randomly cast away so that your chance of hitting the foe is extremely low. I think all that needs to be done here is to make it work differently on some spells e.g. maybe HCSM would target the foe or something because you reverse the spell or whatever. The point is that if they made Force, specifically Force, cast a little faster and do things like this, then it would, as you stated, create a magic "parry."

    No kidding? I've never actually used WotG since I've never gone the faith route, but that is interesting. I knew force repelled arrows but that's not important, I pretty much ignore arrows.. well maybe I pay attention to those shot by the two silver knights in anor, but anywho, it would be cool if like u said there was a faster cast to reach the practicality of, say, the speed of a quick shield block, but the reflect spell would have to be purely defensive and not cause AOE damage as it would be exploited

    Maybe they would call it "mirror" and is obtainable from mirror knights soul, shoot, maybe u can get his shield which functions as a magic deflector but has poor physical damage reduction..
