Skills and Abilities[edit]

Quick Strike
A basic melee attack that does minor physical damage.
Power Bash
A heavy shield bash that does moderate damage and stuns if it hits the player. This attack can be blocked to set the enemy off balance.
The enemy may also briefly block with its shield, reducing damage taken greatly. Players that attempt heavy attacks on the enemy when it is blocking will be set off balance.
Shard Shield
The enemy will attempt to cast Shard Shield on a nearby ally. If it is successfully cast, a golden line of light will connect the two. The ally will now have a reflective shield that will injure anyone targeting the ally. Once the bodyguard is dead, the shield will be removed. Shard Shield cannot be reflected at the bodyguard. This spell can be interrupted to set the enemy off balance.
