Description Improves your damage with shield-based skills, and increases your Spell Save by 3–10cTS:0.75P and Physical Save by 5–20cTS:0.75P.

The way that this talent increases your damage is by adding half of this talent's level to the level of many talents that specifically attack with a shield, when using combatTalentWeaponDamage (cTWD), for the purpose of all shield damage calculations. e.g. Shield Pummel at level 1 with level 4 Shield Expertise does equal damage to Shield Pummel at level 3 without Shield Expertise.

Affects the following talents:

Does not affect every talent that attacks with a shield. Talents not listed here are unaffected.

Description You brace yourself for the final stand, increasing Defense and Armor by [6]20cTStD:Dex, maximum and current life by ([30]500cTStD:Con + 2–10%cTL:100% * Base Life), but making you unable to move.

Your stand lets you concentrate on every blow, allowing you to avoid death from normally fatal wounds. You can only die when reaching -([30]500cTStD:Con + 2–10%cTL:100% * Base Life) life.

The increase in Defense and Armor is based on your Dexterity, and the increase in life is based on your Constitution and normal maximum life.

Note: The bonus life is removed upon deactivation, and may kill your character without warning.
