Since the job forums have been pretty inactive for awhile, I thought I'd start a new topic in each devoted to things you'd like or wish that Square Enix would do with each job. They can be legitimate things you'd like to see, or they could be absurd, and, while they can be, they don't have to be any serious or groundbreaking changes you think each job needs, just something you think would improve them a bit in some form. Just try to keep the topic clean and drama free (emphasis on try). Just have some fun with this and let your ideas soar.
It'd be nice if Paladin had some way of incorporating their shields into weaponskills (likely one or two weaponskills using the shield specifically rather than retooling all weaponskills for Paladin to take the shield into account or not). Shields were historically used not only as defensive, but also offensive tools, being used to strike and bludgeon opponents similarly to Shield Bash. However, outside of Shield Bash, offensively the Shield isn't used at all.
