Fiona's shield is not blocking majority of the time. Even in perfect guard with the blue spark, I get knocked down. Heavy stander isn't working properly as well. Please fix Fiona's blocking. This same issue was posted in the old forums but was not fixed.

    I've also seen the problem with successful deflections.

    Edit: Seems some Karoks are seeing the same thing happen with their absorb(?) skill, so it probably affects anything that requires receiving a hit (Fifi block, Delia block, Karok's absorb).

    Found another thread in the "Fiona" section posting about this blocking issue. Many Fiona players are having the same problem as well.

    And here's a video of heavy stander bugging (thanks to a Yuria):
    https://player.twitch.tv/?volume=0.0&video=v118498574&time=02h19m00s

    In the background, you can see Fifi perform a heavy stander during Neamhain's 3-hit instant kill attack. However, instead of the 2nd hit being blocked by heavy stander, it hits as if there was no blocking at all. I can verify that the Fifi in the background was successfully heavy standing based on character stance and sound (mostly because it was me).

    EU client had this bug before too, it was fixed for one patch, now Neamhain patch came and it broke her Small Shield this time, as most attacks push her away.
    Guess NA will get this bug too for next major patch.

    Neamhain patch came and it broke her Small Shield this time

    Our small shield broke in the Ein Lacher patch. According to those patch notes, they fiddled with blocking to fix a bug that was extremely rare. Whatever they did made that bug a lot more common ("dropping her arms when you hit block") and introduced a new bug - take hits through a blocking shield (even if perfect guarded). The Abyssal Arena update added the problem to Heavy Stander and (very rarely) deflections.

    Neamhain's raid just makes the bug a lot more apparent because of its slim margin for error. Typically, when a shield/block bugs in Neamhain, you just end up dead.

    Here's another post with a better video demonstrating the issue, this time with a large shield:
