Well everyone, your concerns are well warranted, as we haven't released a whole lot of information on our MMO aspect and conclusions can be drawn from what we have released.

Thanks for your confidence in us Darvin!

Buffeting is a skill where you hit your opponent with your shield, dazing him and thereby setting yourself up for an undefended strike.
