Larian should buff this feat to compensate for giving "moon gravity" shove as a bonus action to every (melee) build. Give it a bonus chance to successfully shove similar to the AC of the shield, give it a similar bonus to defend against shove, make shoves with the feat + shield cause target to fall prone. Anything but pretend Larian's meme-combat homebrew didn't hurt this feat.
Is this forever +2? Or using a +1 shield would give you +3 dex saving throws?
lame no shove ...yet
Wierd question but does this give you proficiency? Seeing that it is not required and only lvl4 is needed you'd think it does...
No bonus action shove?
Is this effectively giving shield users the rogue's evasion ability?
