Boldur has a unique animation for his shield bashes.
Galilea’s just uses her “Quick Melee” animation, which really doesn’t make much sense as she throws her shield for her quick melee, and she had her shield raised lol.
A shield bash is intended to force someone back while still defending with your shield, usually in situations of heavy assault where lowering your shield would mean your death… This animation make no sense in that context imo, as you have to LOWER your shield, then stretch your arm out forward and toss it.
*For anyone who doesn’t know (and honestly it’s not mentioned ANYWHERE so why would you), “Shield Bashing” is what “some” characters with a raised shield (i.e. Galilea and Boldur, but not ISIC) will do if you press the “Quick Melee” button while you have your shield raised.
