The lazers would be quicker traveling than the bullets and arrows so i dont see why not, but instead of knocking the lazers off target they would just disentergrate the bullet/arrows

For the record, their weapons are ancient. It's a long time ago, after all

But back to the matter at hand: My personal opinion is that there should be an evasion chance for arrows, and bit of blocking chance when the unit has a shield, not just evade and mitigate.

I have seen in movies ppl parrying arrows with stick or sword or even in one kung fu movie also bullets =). Beside some ppl also catch arrows, with hands that, are shot directly at them. So never say never i guess =P and its also fantasy ... everything is possible =).

Those are movies, and are rather silly too, a well-shot arrow will go faster than sound so you can't hear it coming, and will also move too quickly for anyone to parry it. Same thing with bullets.

I've seen somebody catch an arrow too, but it was straight at him and wasn't going even one-third of the speed a real arrow would be coming at him if the archer was trying to kill him.

It's significantly easier to 'catch' an arrow on a shield. IMO, elves should have a naturally higher chance of avoiding arrow damage, with orca having natural improvement on peircing, melée damage, and parry, and men having a better blocking chance (with a slight increase) in parry), to mimic most lore.

I would agree with everything you said except an arrow doesn't hit anywhere as fast as the speed of sound. I think the average speed of an arrow is around 100 mph(160 kph) give or take. The speed of sound is around 750+ mph.

I thought that sounded a little screwy. Still - catch 'n' fire tests have been done. Thought these were probably done with low speed arrows, and low pound bows.

Hey now, I've seen martial artists block arrows.. not on TV, but in real life..

My Kendo teacher is able to nick arrows fired from a bone-bow coming at him straight on, and side fired..

Though, the freak is 82 and has practiced his entire life..

Sort of like those combat artists that seem to defy logic, hit before the punch is thrown, because they've trained the body to reflex before the signal hit's the brain.

Sure, but we're not dealing with 82 year old humans, are we? We're dealing with presumably 20-30 year old fighting men, trained for 5 years, or Huge, brutish orcs (Or skinny goblins), or elves (Who are probably better at it then the other three).
