|Shield bash attempts now apply damage equal to two times your combined Strength and Shield skill.|
|This troop ignores any Encumbrance penalty to the Shield skill.|
- Example: A Strength of 15 and Shield skill of 4 would yield:
- Damage is modified by your opponent's armor level leaving this very effective against unarmored opponents, but less so against heavily armored opponents.
- Damage is modified by your movement speed making it combine well with abilities such as Sprinter and Boundless Endurance.
