That’s a really interesting idea. We could have separate shattering and AP attacks, but I think DS should still be a thing for certain dinos, especially ones like epic T-rex.
Another idea is attacks that go through shields, but don’t destroy them.
The only downside I can think of is there would be a lot of new attacks all of a sudden, which could get complicated, but they didn’t hesitate when it came to the varieties of precise attacks, so it’s probably not a problem.
Anyway, we could have:
(destroy shields and deal _x damage)
(deal _x damage, bypassing armour)
Defence-Piercing/Superior piercing attacks
(deal _x damage bypassing shields and armour)
(destroy shields, deal_x damage bypassing armour)
And there would be strikes, impacts, rampages and precise versions of each of those.
