    Shield bash?

    So like you know some shields replace the parry with a shield bash. Is it useful in anyway? I've noticed when npcs shield bash me there is a significant drain in stamina if I'm blocking.

    I've never broken a mobs guard by shield bashing, kicking seems to work better so to me it seems pretty useless.

    It's not technically a bash, but the bonewheel shields L2 is pretty effective. It's a 3 hit to so it usually does break most mobs guard.
    I've got a lightning one myself, and it's wicked.

    The best use I have come up for it is in PvE, if you bash right before they land their blow you'll not only stagger the attack, but do some damage also.

    A thoroughly useless manoeuvre that does nothing a kick cant do better. I think it was placed in the game for the sole purpose of denying Greatshields the ultimate block along with parry capabilities.
