Spellcasters (Heroes & Lords) should get barrier in their skill trees. The yellow-line section never truly seperated the caster Lords and melee lords. Barrier would help differentiate that in a flavorful manner.
It should also maybe be considered for some on the units that are leaning into the "spellcaster" realm. I understand though, if that is an impossibility because of balance.
Items should also be able to provide barrier and provide a different defense than regular stats. Hopefully encouraging low stats heroes and lords to chose barriers instead. Perhaps encourage a more hit and run playstyle for combat heroes?
Point is barrier should be utilised more. Please add more of it in campaign at least.
