    Strong magic shield on an offensive shield= extra damage?

    Does using magic / strong magic shield on a shield that can attack give you additional damage?

    I didn't think so, but I thought I'd ask.

    I'm 90% sure that S/MS only gives a shield extra stability and magic resistance, It has no effect on the damage it does

    I really want a reason to use this spell, but the weapon buff is so much better, and you need to have a catalyst in both hands if you want to use both. Darn shame.

    To be honest with the new content and how powerful magic is now, it may be of more use then it has been previously, Since the dark magic's take a lot of stamina to block, do magic damage and are very popular, this seems like the perfect spell to counter them

    It will never be useful because of the terrible duration of like 25 seconds. Its never worth using like that. It won't out last a buff or be extremely helpful. If you could choose weapon buff or shield buff at the start of a duel, I know which one I'd take, just for that reason.
