Yeah. It would make sense for there to be offensive shield skills specific to bucklers. Currently, the protection afforded by bucklers is so modest that you’d prefer to gain the increased damage of double grip. But I think they should impose damage+fatigue on the opponent instead of affecting hit chances.

I thought about skills that could inflict dmg with bucklers. But dmg dealing parry already belongs to swords aka riposte, and a simple dmg dealing skill with a buckler? Meh, who would hit an enemy with a shield, when you can simply smash his head with that freaking axe in your other hand?
So I think it would be cool to give ’em some aggressive defense possibilities
