Paladins shield works way better than gladiators shield and they dont have a shield button. I also assume their actions don't lock up when their shield is absoring hits. They also have a shorter cool down on their Take Down. Plus they have really fast mobility. I feel like a meet shield just absorbing there hits once my dodges run out. Having to wait for my take down cool down is bad. None of my attacks can do anything against there shield. I cant do charging
thrust against them even if ther just standing there. If they do a shield charge and i immediately follow with a charging thrust hoping to catch them when they stop i am immediately shield chased. And ther shield charge totally owns my shield charge. Also scars of dust animation is to slow and its knock down never seems to work.
