  • Shield Bash blocks the next attack skill against you, not the next attack. This is a common misconception.
  • Shield Bash is often used by secondary Warriors in PvP, because it is effective even at 0 Strength.
  • Although they are considered attack skills by other game mechanics, pet attacks will not trigger Shield Bash.
  • Unlike axe/sword/etc. attack skills, which are disabled if you aren't wielding the appropriate weapon, this skill will not be disabled if you are not wielding a shield. You can still activate it, but its effect will not trigger unless you equip a shield.
