Shield Smash randomly doesn't deal the damage part to the target, while the bleeding always works. It seems to hit more often if you pause between the first and second chain attack.
  • Despite the skill description, this skill is actually a 300 range dash attack that will prevent other actions such as dodging until the animation is complete.
