Shield Bash?

Postby MOriden » Mon Aug 20, 2012 12:25 am

I wanted my Cleric to have a shield for the extra AC and am willing to get Improved unarmed strike so he can Still both attack, and cast spells without having to put a weapon away. What i want to know is is their any way to shield bash? So that i can still essentially 2 weapon fight. Or even better is there a buckler [which doesn't take a hand] or some form or hand weapon such as thorn bracers or claws for the same.

Thank you

I don't think shield bashing is in the game. Or is it? When I had melee clerics I would just craft a wand of divine power for them and then enchant the wand like a weapon (+5 destruction, holy etc). That way the cleric has a shield, a weapon and can still cast Divine Power from the wand.

Nope you cannot do a Shield Bash in KotC and there are no bucklers. Metamagic Still Spell would allow you to cast while holding a shield and a weapon, and also when paralysed.

Sigh* Seems like a really silly oversight to leave out both bucklers and shield bash. Guess i'll have to grab quick draw.

It's not an oversight, I just never cared for bucklers and shield bash. They're not planned for KotC 2 either.
However I agree that clerics should be able to cast spells with a light shield (not heavy or tower).
Quick draw is an option but you can't open the inventory more than once per round.
