Notes

  • Stun rate is fairly high, but not 100%.
    • Being an instant ability, Shield Bash is very effective at stunning mob TP moves.
  • Items which enhance Shield Bash only increase its base damage.
  • Bash damage formula: damage = (Base + ShieldSizeBonus + JobPoints + BashGear) * Randomizer.
    • The Randomizer is a random number between 1.0 and 1.05.
  • Base dmg is 27 at lvl 99 PLD. This value scales with level. 15 base dmg at PLD level 45.
  • Shield size bonuses are:
    • Size 1 Shield (Bucklers): +0
    • Size 2 Shield (Round Shields): +13
    • Size 3 Shield (Kite Shields): +40
    • Size 4 Shield (Tower Shields): +67
    • Size 5 Shield (Aegis, Srivatsa): +0
    • Size 6 Shield (Ochain): +0
  • The Dispel effect from Cab. Gauntlets +2 and Cab. Gauntlets +3 does not display a log message, making it difficult to tell what was dispelled.
    • The effect is also incredibly accurate, so if the mob had dispellable effects, you removed one.
    • Landed on 139 mobs at 100% rate with a non ilvl weapon and no Magic Accuracy gear. (Small verified samples. See references.)
