I guess I was really hoping that a narrow-timing damage reflection ability would be more central to her build. That's what I really want in a champion. Somebody who can reflect anything back at the attacker, and who can lunge/leap/teleport to targets and empty locations with their other 3 spells OR use the other 3 spells for various types of shielding on allies and selves. That would fit my preferred playstyles exactly.
Kind of like the monks in the old final fantasy games or the Sentinel class in FF13 (they absorb damage and deal it back based on how much they absorbed).
