Kerillian spear block

I feel like the block is slightly too long to work effectively. Do you elf mains agree or think I need to just git gud?

Feels like I should block an attack but the timing with the animation feels off to me, should be slightly faster.

Regardless of what the animation shows, as soon as you press block, you’re blocking, unless you have to interrupt an action to do it.
A better guide would be ‘as soon as you see the stamina shields, you’re blocking’
