I finally decided to make a shield user character and i can say its totally broken... with the right steps you can even bash them to the floor. There is absolute no chance that an human can be defeated using shield right now. Sometimes even npc can handle you because there are no openings. Look this ive been shieldhandling this guy for like 5' (or more) throwing him everycorner, cleaning the floor with him and when i was tired i just smashed his face with the mace. In this image i almost gets this dude inside that cage, i had a good laugh. At this rate you may want to work in some command grab a push of any kind or something that i am unaware of... but something needs to be done with shield users. This may be sound extreme but i stoped playing because i got tired of facing shileds. Shields are ruining this game, with all honestity.
