Blazing spear, Unblockable?

I had a duel with a friend of mine today and she decided to use blazing spear as an opener. I had full stamina (yes I have plenty of stam to block at lease a few of these normally) and was unable to block it.
Has anyone else experienced this?

    I've blocked it, however the CC immunity granted by all the other stuns in the game does not get applied from blazing spear.

    My theory behind it is that disorients also do not give any immunity (streak etc.) and the base ability and the other morph are disorients. I think it's a bug, some people will just spam it and if you can't break out of it you're perma stunned.

    She used it as an opener, to start duels you are blocking meaning it went through the block.

    It's blockable (although it does stun blocking mobs), but the stun itself doesn't grant any CC immunity; allowing you to be permastunned if you couldn't CC break.

    One of the few things keeping the current block-happy meta in check IMO.

    The blazing spear morph is a 2 sec stun, not disorient.

    As one of the first Pro Blazing Spear spammers I can assure you people have blocked entire sets of them until they are out of stam.

    You are doing something wrong.

    People block my blazing spear all the time. If you can't its a new bug.

    Yes, yes it is. I thought that was clear, but if it wasn't, thanks.

    you can't block the stun but, you can't be perma stunned by it either,
    I have spammed blazing spear from the back lines when I am healing and I notice that I would have to hit the same person like 5 times to get them stunned more than once, hardly a perma/chain stun skill
    it doesn't follow the normal cc rules for this game, and i suspect it has some sort of internal cd attached to it

    it's also aoe damage (and proc damage) which cannot be blocked

    I assure you, if you spam it on someone and they don't have the stamina to break out of it, all they can do is sit and watch.

    These responses seem a little confused, perhaps I encountered a random bug or my block animation was bugged instead. I'll have to watch and see if it's able to be blocked.

    They're like the talons of the Templar class. Spamable yet still stuns you after you break free.

    idk about unblockable, but you can be perma-stunned by it if you cant get out of its annoying attacks before you get stunned.

    if you actually cant block any of it, its a new bug and needs fixing asap.

    I think it used to be unblockable by players (or maybe back then people dropped their block just before my Spear hit them), but that was fixed. The stunlocking is still present however.

    And no it isn't comparable to Talons. Talons is an Immobilise, all Immobilises work that way. Talons is just the most commonly used Immobilise.

    Well in all honesty,

    This could be a product of the block bug going around. Block will randomly stop working and you need to refresh it.

    Just a thought.
