    Crystal shield question

    Post by CarverUpqik on Sun Jun 16, 2013 3:46 am

    well i was youtubing random dks videos and i came across this guy named stonewall. i noticed hes always wearing the crystal shield on his back, is there a point to that? i mean it he 2 hands the GSoA and they both have the same special ability but does it also work without blocking unlike GSoA?

    Crystal Shield is a mini Havel's shield, just with a bash.

    I'm pretty sure he just chose it for aesthetic reasons. There are much better options than the Crystal Shield, but he probably just likes the way it looks.

    well that much i know i was just wondering if theres a point to having it on your back i mean wouldnt he be better off with a grass crest on his back? especially since i didnt see him block with the crystal shield even once

    I don't think there is any real benefit. He probably would be much better off with the Grass Crest Shield on his back.

    oh i have another question and it deals with shields so i may as well ask here instead of making another post does the orange charred ring affect the two handed shield shove (the one that replaces the kick) also or does it only affect actual kicks
