All crusaders, especialy those playingHC, should read this warning!
Shield Bashis bugged, for so far unknown reasons, you might get stuck when using it. Not only that you cant move, but some of your skills will be unusable as well (from skills i was using when that happened, Condemn worked, while Bombardment not), as well as Town Portal! It also seams that some passives and runes cease to work as well when this happens (my Punish - Roar wasnt causing explosions upon blocking and im not sure if Renewal healed me, becouse my hp was dropping kinda fast and if i havent had healing templar at my side, i would die).
Stop using this skill at once, it might cost you your character if you play HC, or simply cause annoyance when playing SC.
edit: it doesnt occure so rarely as you might thing, a friend told me it happened to him yesterday, i just thought it may never happen to me, and here we go. Dont be so ignorant as I was.
I tried out a new build the other day that used Shield Bash, and the first group of blues I encountered triggered this bug. Playing hardcore, I LUCKILY made the logout time of 10 seconds with about 20% life left. Did a google search, and found out it must have been this bug. So no, it's not that rare, and no more Shield Bash for me until they fix it. Good on you for making a warning post.
Was unable to move, use portal or much anything else. Was fighting pack of elites as it took place.Luckily enough I think this bug also kept ground based aoe from hurting me. Don't think melee blows connected either, didn't die. Just sat there and watched Kormac kill em off, heh.
Yeah, I got stuck today (using the exploding rune, second to last one)...and I'm on HC. Luckily It didn't happen on an elite, but a white big mob. No skills worked and I was stuck in one place, the only thing that worked was condemned that killed of the enemy. I could leave the game and resume.
I've heard that this bug is also caused by Akarat's Champion rebirth after death thing.
Yet another misconception, I am pretty sure it is related to the jailer afix as someone in this thread have already pointed out.
I am just amazed that it is still bugged, I encountered it once or twice during the first few days of RoS when playing my crusader and was certain that it will get hot fixed real soon. Weeks passed and it is apparently still there? I mean wtf Blizzard?
Allready happend to me two times. First time solo, could only use my left click ability. Couldn't even loot things after killing the pack I was on (and of course a leg amulet droped...). Second time today in a rift with friends.
the two time were on jailers pack. So yeah pretty much sure it's related. I guess that if you are jailed in certain frames of shield bash charge you will bug.
100% sure the bug proc when you are jailed right when you click your bash. If the charge animation launch when you are jailed you are stuck. This time I tried to die to no be stuck ad eternam. But apparently when bugged YOU CAN'T DIE. At least this bug can't kill you in HC but can ruin your bounties if you solo play.
Hard to screenshot my 0 healthbar with my natural health regen :p
Oh, its nice that you cant die when encountering this bug. But the most interesting thing - when it happened to me, there wasnt any jailer about. And somebody said earlier here that it happened on a white mob. Anyway, i wouldnt risk it.
