hunter stance when blocking

aesthetically the hunter is off balance with a clumsy pose when blocking the hunter should have a better-balanced pose when blocking like a knight

I think they are just accounting for the fact that hunter Swords or camos you can get can be like 4x as big as NGS's 'Beam Sword'

The stance looks more like its meant to deflect an incoming strike rather than trying to have the sword behave like a shield.

Basically taking a hit at the wider part of the blade near the hilt and then having the incoming attack slide down the length of the blade rather than attempting to take the full force of it in a braced stance.

But maybe I'm just insane. lol.
