Notes Edit

  • On Nightmare, Shield Bash can stagger nearby allies. If a friendly fire-capable spell (e.g., upgraded Fist of the Maker) hits a staggered ally, the result is virtually always fatal.
  • Force applied depends upon weapon damage type: a shield wielded with a physical damage weapon will deal physical force while one that deals another type of damage will deal that elemental force. For example, a Shield Bash preformed while wielding Desdemona's Blade will deal out nature force effects instead of physical force.
