The shield bearer has combat advantage against an enemy while another frost giant shield bearer is adjacent to that enemy.

Icebound Footing

When an effect pulls, pushes, or slides the giant, it can choose to move 2 squares fewer than the effect specifies. The giant can make a saving throw to avoid falling prone when an attack would knock it prone.
