Default Air Shield

Does it, or the shield of valor, work against ryalla's mindblast?

So is it defined that a thing precision 100 is an auto hit?
What happens under the effects of storms - where precision is cut in half?

Would an airshield work then?

I believe some "projectiles" have the (hidden) "autohit" tag. These include psychic attacks and lightning bolts, not sure what else. These attacks don't use the arrow-style mechanics of 'I landed in the right square, but did I actually hit anyone there?'; instead, they always hit somebody in the square. Air shield does not protect against these sorts of attacks.

I don't think there is an "autohit" tag that's separate from vision. Just as 9999 is a magic value for damage that bypasses luck, 100 is a magic value for Precision that bypasses shields/darkness/etc.

If vision is reduced, do mind blasts still work?

It works even if they're blind.
