    1) My suggestion is to kill the player if they have a shield in their off hand. (Like if you have diamond armour at spawn)

    2) We need this to be implemented into bending, reason being, if you hold the shield up while in battle, you won't take any damage. Unless you hit them from the back, but I find this a flaw in bending, as players that do get killed easily do use a shield when low on health and either kill themselves or do /wild.

    3) People that do get killed a lot, would be forced to learn the element they chose, instead of using shield every time they are low on health.

    4) The positive aspect of it is, the player won't waste time, trying to kill the opponent, then later finding out the opponent is going to bring the shield out, and heal while doing it, giving the player an unfair advantage.

    5) This can be done by making shields similar to moxxi's. not letting the player put the shield in the off hand, and kill them if they try to walk out spawn with it.

    *If this does become more of an open topic that players talk about on bending or if this thread gets attention, i will open a poll*

    There may be players who already know their elements yet chooses to use the shields...
    Use this opportunity to use those shields users as "target dummies" to enhance your pvp bending skills. c:


    You said those who use shields give the other player an unfair advantage. I believe this is false as there are numerous ways of dealing with shield users using bending abilities.

    Water Bending
    - Control Torrent/WaterManipulation/whatever and guide them behind target's back.
    -
    Cleanse then use BloodBending to throw them up the air.
    -
    FrostBreath then ditch them.

    Earth Bending
    - Immobilize target with Earth Grab/MetalCables, then LavaFlow/Flux.
    - Immobilize target with
    Earth Grab/MetalCables, then bury them with that earth combo (Crevice I think).
    -
    EarthSurf then ditch them.

    Fire Bending
    - Wall of Fire.
    - Burning effects (
    Blaze, FireBreath, FireShield, etc.).
    -
    FireJet then ditch them.

    Air Bending
    - Suffocate.
    - With the Air Passives, just jump/sprint behind them and attack using
    skills & reflexes.
    -
    Flight/AirBlast to ditch them.

    Chi Blockers
    - SmokeScreen, ShadowSuit and walk behind them, BackStab or just attack.
    -
    SmokeScreen, ShadowSuit then ditch them.

    Here's my thoughts of shields in combats.

    Positive
    aspects for using shields in combat:
    1. Defend themselves against strong abilities (example: SpiritBeam, ElementSphere, ShockWave, etc).
    2. Defend themselves against spammable abilities.
    3. With a healing ability, it gives themselves more time to heal thus longer battles.

    Negative aspects for using shields in combat:
    1. Irritates other players who strive to kill.
    2. With bending involved, shields tend to break faster (especially with SpiritBeam).
    3. Slow walking speed.

    These guys from "Avatar: The Last Airbender" series just so happen to carry shields in battle. ;))

    No i think the only person on the server, that has truly mastered their element, that players on this server is Alvear, as a lot of server dint have airslash, and many custom moves that Phanatic has made/ took, that's why when i join a new server, and I say I'm from Phanatic, everyone starts saying "oml Phanatic bending is broken" so yeah.

    The only person.. ( ¬_¬)

    irrelevant

    Listen... It isn't even that hard to kill players with shields. Those who've "mastered" their elements would have barely any problems dealing with shield users.

    I hope you didn't make this suggestion just because you want to kill other players more easily than you usually do.
