The sword and shield is a medium damage weapon with a defensive option of using the shield to block attacks. While there is a bit of time after the swing animation to be able to roll away, Will can put his shield up almost instantly after an attack ends.
Will can also move while holding his shield, allowing him to move into position without the risk of getting damaged, but he cannot change direction. It would be best to roll away from an enemy if you place your shield in the wrong direction. After taking some hits, the shield will stop blocking and Will will be pushed back a large distance, and can even take damage if the hit is big enough.
If Will puts up his shield at the same time as making contact with an enemy, a parry can occur that will push the enemy back.
- Hit 1: A slash that arcs in front of Will.
- Hit 2: The same slash from Hit 1 going the other direction.
- Finisher: A slash going the same direction as Hit 1, with double damage and extra knockback.
Each hit moves Will the same amount.
Will puts up his shield while the button is being held in. Will cannot attack until the shield is away, but he can roll as soon as the shield button is let go. Use this to escape hits you won't be able to block. His shield can take two hits before Will leaps back from the impact.
