    Bypassing the shields blocking is not a good idea. If you want to block with the shield and not with the sword, you would have to switch to a different hotbar slot, which would be annoying.

    True. I'm thinking you should only be able to block if parrying is on cooldown. Then again you could just switch to the axe if you wanted to block which I don't think would be much of an issue especially when switching weapons doesn't reset the cooldown anymore(in the snapshot at least).

    I think If anything, the sword's parry mode should be overridden by the Shield's block when The player crouches, that way you can still block with a shield while the parry mode isn't obsolete, The question Is how phones and tablets will be able to use It, especially with my / virtuousstorm15 's Idea of special attacks.

    It really sounds like more of a mod and less vanilla

    if crited when in parry mode, your next cooldown should be longer.

    Great idea, it would be nice to see more mindgames and rock paper scissors mechanics in pvp. Although, I feel like the parry state should be shorter, as it might be a bit annoying to have to wait 2 seconds when you succesfully read a parry - although, it might feel weird having a 2.5 second stun after a shorter parry time.
