From FFXI Wiki
- 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:
- 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.)
