    Ideas for combat upgrade
    That with the shield you can push the enemy, 1 block. And that with the enchantment table you can enchant the shield with "push" either push 1,2,3

    So it would work like knock back for when people hit you. Right?

    I think it is more like double pressing w when blocking.

    It's making shields too OP. Actually shields are strong enough already since it severely decreases risks of monsters.

    I think a nice way of implementing this would be to have it so that when using a shield (right clicking), and then you attack (left click) at the same time you should hit them, knocking them back and doing no damage. The attack distance of this should be small (about one block), This would make it only useful when something is super close to the player and not overpowered. 

    I think this wouldn't affect actual combat that much but i think this feature would just be really satisfying to use.

    Yeah. If you left click while holding  right click with shield. You do a shield bash. That could do half a heart of damage and push enemies back a few blocks.

    considering that atm shields are only useful against bows (since blocking a sword just means that you're stalling and you'll be at a disadvantage when you lower your shield due to cooldown) this sounds useful, it means that you can defend and give yourself some breathing room, this should disable blocking for a bit tho just like axes do but with a shorter timer

    Just so people don't spam it and get infinite free hits

    What about making it so that the higher the “push” enchantment, the higher it knocks back anything that hits it, BUT, the shield has less durability? This would balance it out, by making it so you would want to go out and gather materials to make more shields, and get the unbreaking three enchantment, on top of having plenty of experience for when needing to repair it.

    Mabye this could only happen if you could upgrade your shield with netherite.
