    I honestly didn't either but if it's true it would explain a few things.

    I stopped a Blizzaga III with Shield Bash last night ^-^

    BTW, shield skill doesn't add damage to shield bash for me. Only items with "Shield bash+#" description.

    Well my Shield Bash damage usually rises a mighty one point of damage with each level or two but I did one last night for 24 damage as opposed to the standard 18 damage ones of late. Been quite ill recently and kinda worn down from leveling (PLD 0>66 in a month) so I don't know why it did a little more damage, maybe 'cause we were fighting bones?

    No its because of Lightning day. You get like 10 extra dmg and a higher chance of stun.

    Nah, both weapon bash and shield bash work the same, 10 or so extra damage on lightning day and higher chance of stun. Try it for yourself, noob.

    Sad that a 75 PLD had to ask this but yeh im at 251 shield skill cuz SE fixed blocking after i hit 75 and im just wondering exactly how shield skill helps if itsa higher block rate or something else. I was exping last night and managed to get 1 level and my shield bash went from a constant 15 then was a constant 16.

    i woudl imagine that it does cause weapon bash has increased over levels as well

    Last night I did a whooping 21 dmg Shield Bash to Bahamut haha! I have capped shield skill, 3 upgrades in shield merits, and was using +5 shield skill from Knight's earring (total added shield skill 287 at that point). I don't tend to over-analyze stuff, so you guys draw your own conclusions here.

    Thats usually the case, Shield Bash with AF2 gloves will stun just about any HNM's spell casting. Interrupted Jormy twice and Kirin numerous times. Almost all other mobs besides HNM get spell interrupted when they get shield bashed.
