Brutal Buckler Baneful Bash In contrast to Oryx’s personal equipment, this lightweight shield is too small to stagger an opponent. It is instead covered in jagged metal to shred targets.

Part of the Agents of Oryx Abilities.

One of the strongest shields in the game, this shield sacrifices the ability to stun for raw damage. Its minimum damage, without Full Strength, is already higher than the max damage from a Champion’s Bastion. Although it has a higher MP cost than the bastion, this is still a very powerful ability. It also gives a decent buff to both ATT and HP.

The Full Strength proc can increase this damage by a huge margin, and it has no cooldown. But in order to get the most damage from this ability, you must be sitting on the target, in addition to being above the HP threshold.

Of course, using this shield means sacrificing the stun - an integral part of Knight’s kit - which means that it should be used in scenarios where stunning targets is irrelevant.

Before Exalt Version (Nov 2020), Full Strength triggered above 700 HP.
