This ability lets you follow up a Bash with another shield attack at high damage. It is, essentially, a second Bash: the effect is the same, and the animation is similar. Compared to Bash, Shield-smash does approximately 25% more damage and costs approximately 50% more power (without legacies).
If Bash misses or is avoided, you can still follow up with Shield-smash.
