    Shield attacks can block

    If you 2 hand a shield, the r1 attack can block an attack if you hit the same time they do.
    I used a spider shield for this.
    Just something I noticed and wanted to share.

    EDIT:The heavy attack can do it too.

    That's the trick of kicking with shields to use offhand attacks, especially GC.

    I was thinking about doing this yesterday. Can you 1h a Heater shield and do the push animation into a GC? It's like an even more effective kick.

    Is the push a variant of the kick animation, or a melee attack type thing?

    How does a dual shield setup do in dark souls pvp, is it viable? I remember that it was a big annoyance in demons souls.

    With the Bonewheel shield, against a low poise opponent it is devastating.

    You can be parried, though, so be careful! I've parried shield attacks a couple times, both main-handed and off-hand shields.
