I just remembered another thing, which probably counters my argument against Toffie but oh well. If a knight shields upwards, it is impossible to stomp them as an archer. If you get a 1-heart stomp against the shield, it does nothing. If you get a 2-heart stomp against the shield, it makes it so the knight cannot hold their shield up anymore for about a second. But that doesn't stop them immediately slashing you after. Maybe make a 2-heart stomp can stun a shielding knight?
