At the moment, the Entangled status prevents the use of pretty much all teleportation and movement-type skills, such as Teleport, Nether Swap, Battering Ram, Cloak and Dagger, and Flight.

Backlash, however, is not affected by Entangled. In essence it's a teleportation. The skill description says you "jump over" the target. Seems to me that it should be disabled by Entangled too, for better consistency.

Would make Entangled a great counter to Gheists. Otherwise, they can still Backlash to someone and kill them with the next basic attack.

Right I just checked, Blitz Attack also works while the character is Entangled. Hmm. This might actually be intended, but I still think they should be disabled. I just don't see any reason why they should be the exception.

Also check out the webbed status. In DOS2 Classic, Blitz Attack and Backlash still work when the character is webbed.

They do indeed, in DE. Enwebbed and Entangled are the same thing in terms of mechanics, looks like.

because shield throw is a spell. (it even crit with savage sortilege)
apparently you need to chant some warrior magic to throw non round object proberly so it would hit 1-2 targets and return back to your hand laugh

Hey guys, actually it is not difficult to fix the Backlash and Blitz Attack problem, i tried to create a mod and just need to have minor changes.

For your info, the mod is in here: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1621250187

I agree that those skills should NOT work when entangled or enwebbed. There are no lore or gameplay reasons they should work whilst other movement abilities are blocked.

I was very surprised to find myself one shot by Kniles / Gheists backstabbing me after being entangled, and assumed it was a bug.

They shouldn't work while crippled either, but I know that Back Lash works when crippled too.
