Like the title says... or rather asks...

Does the sheild perk Disarming Bash work with a bow?

Anybody know?

From my understanding if it doesn't specifically say "with a shield" then it can be used by a weapon. For example you can slow time while blocking with a two hander or a one hander. Not sure if the bow attack is labelled in skyrim as a bash or a power attack. Excellent question. If your have console power level and test plz!

Well it definately works with 2H, but I have nothing to add regarding bows unfortunately.

A bow is a weapon so it should work the same as a 2H or even a 1H weapon bash.

It doesn't work, and neither does power bash. I tested it by giving myself the perks with the console.

Nah... power bash works I've tested it on a frost troll... I had some perks saved up.... bashed em with my bow and did nill for damage... threw in the perks and did significant damage...

I just dont know if it'll disarm enimies...

Could be a must have for the ultimate archer build.

Im not sure it would be worth it. My archer does fine with the stagger archery perk and the disarm shout.

I never thought of that. Let me know if it works and I'll probably add it myself. Would be awesome for a pure archer.

Yeah I's like to test it unfortunately im not sittin on any extra perks now. I'm lvl 70 so it'll prolly be awhile before I get 4 extra perks to play around with...

Thats why I'm kinda hopin some archery pros chime in.

According to the Wiki it works with 2-H weapons so it should work with bows. I will go try it. http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Block_%28Skyrim%29

Edit: No, it doesn't seem to work. To disarm with a shield, you hold down LT, then you hold down RT. However, to bash with a bow, it doesn't matter if you hold LT or press it, the bash is the same; and if you use RT you just ready an arrow. I bashed some Draugr about 50 times and didn't get a disarm with a bow, but with a shield I can get one quite quickly.
