Geralt does not roll to dodge blows. He knows how to flip.
No one expects it.
Because why would someone who is 200+ pounds in armor be in the air, effortlessly evading everything? (This video is great. Geralt wouldn’t be doing this level of complicated tumbling, but just watch how cool it is). Rolling is impractical because his swords are in the way, the ground may be uneven, but most important of all is: the last place a witcher wants to be is on the ground where he has limited movement.
It can be dangerous on rocky or slippery ground so Geralt pays attention to his footing and his surroundings. (Also, if he’s recovering from a leg injury he limits his flips as much as possible).

Here’s my Weiss Schnee cosplay from RWBY work in progress!! It’s almost complete, I just need my boots to arrive and finish my sword! I’ll post more pictures when I have it all together and on at the convention I’m going to Nov 6-8! Let me know is anyone is going to Nebraskon this year!! I’ll be wearing this :)
I tried my two finished versions! >w< I just need to make the sword now. I wasn’t sure of how the chainmail fabric would look but, with the full stuff + wig and boots, it’s better than the first time I tried it so I’m a little reassured even tough it’s not a real one. I can even move my arm more than I thought with the armor so it’s cool! But it’s soooo warm. @.@
I’ll bring both of them at Japan Expo (Paris, july) and at the shooting in Pierrefonds >ww< *sooooo excited*.
Anyway, I’m quite satisfied. >w< I’m waiting for Merlin now! <3 I’ll make the cape later I think. ^-^
