I'ld just like to say Lizana that, following dice rolls etc. as you explained in the last 2 pages, your 'Blade Ward can do 3 things' statement made here is incorrect.
Blade Ward does atleast one and possibly both of following;
* It turns a normal hit into a Parry, when you can be hit normally
* It turns a block into a Parry when you are avoidance capped, by pushing block off the table in favor of parry.
Your statement of Blade Ward turning hits into blocks is irrelevant, because you can't prove that that block would've been a normal hit if it wasn't for Blade Ward. This is what Superspy is trying to say.(*)
You are completely right about the combat table, but at ANY given time during a boss fight where he swings at you, there will be certain numbers in that table and which side of the dice says what is irrelevant,
