[edit] Notes

  • If struck by a melee attack skill that cannot be blocked while Shield Bash is active, the attacker is still knocked down and the skill still suffers the increased recharge.
  • Can be used while knocked down.
  • This skill is still useful with 0 rank in Strength as the attribute rank only affects its duration and not its effect on foes.
  • Especially effective against Assassins due to their unique attack skill system.
