Shields recoiling when struck with projectiles



  • Like the animation when blocking melee attacks, but to a lesser extent. It’ll give a bit more feedback that you’ve just blocked an arrow instead of just a sound.



  • No thank you.

    No thank you.

    Care to explain? I didn’t mean that it throws you backward and drains stamina like a melee attack. Just that your shield arm winces a little bit from stopping a projectile with your shield.



  • Any animation would cause an interruption/flinch even in the slightest and would make archers/projectiles that much more annoying and OP.

    No, I don’t intend any of that. It’s meant to be a purely aesthetic suggestion that only tells you “oh, an arrow hit my shield”



  • Sounds good to me but I don’t know wether the devs have the time to add such a small part right now.

    Hopefully in the future when they polish the game to a further extent. :)
