Tips and Details

  • Sword Shield can only cause hitstun when summoning.
  • Bleed inflicted by Sword Shield will do 30% average attack damage per second at 1 stack. Additional stacks will increase the damage by 36% each. Bleed can be stacked up to 3 times and lasts for 4 seconds.
    • [Enhanced] Sword Shield can apply 3 stacks of Bleed at once and will do 170% average attack damage per second.
    • Interestingly, the default Bleed caused by this skill is much weaker than other sources of Bleed, dealing a total of 30% + 36% + 36% = 102% Average Attack Damage as opposed to 50% + 60% + 60% = 170% Average Attack Damage.
      • This means that [Enhanced] only brings the skill's bleed up to par with other sources of Bleed, with the added benefit of immediately applying 3 stacks.
  • Oddly enough, when Sword Shield is activated there is no way to determine the remaining time (without counting) because there is no buff icon in the top right.
