    I love this ability. I find it more useful than worldwind. Nothing like popping out from behind to catch someone lol

    I like to use it as a distraction, people see my shield and they focus on me. Then an ally comes over and hit them, they turn to defend themselves and I pounce with the harvester.

    The Shield bash is incredibly satisfying the way that unlike regular melees, it actually knocks your enemy up into the air and disrupts their attack.

    Melee when you have the Shield up and you'll crack them with it.

    My biggest issue with the shield (especially in Escalation) is how quickly it breaks under fire. A Scrapmaker firing at full speed can shred through it in just a couple seconds.

    Many Titans I support seem to love their shield. (My preference is the Scientist Medic) TBH, I haven't done much with the Titan class yet, though dropping down at a contested point in Conquest and Whirlwinding everyone to death has been my high point so far with the class.

    The shield is nice, but I seem to not have any luck with it. I still prefer Whirlwind, as I'm a dedicated Slime Cannon user, so Whirlwind is really a no brainer choice.

    It's "meh" to me. My best use of it was when I deflected Whirlwind, but someone else killed me from a different angle.

    I find it useful and people who are having problems fighting it wait for the guy to lower the shield and don't let them get to close or your going to get a face full of energon harvestor
