Shield charge triggers gems socketed in Poet's Pen

Back when Shield Charge was changed to attack with off-hand damage, it stopped triggering spells socketed in Mjolner and Cospri's Malice. However, currently watching ZiggyD level a character on stream, he is able to trigger Arc socketed in his Poet's Pen by using Shield Charge.

You can see in this clip the red effect from Automaton Arc being triggered as he Shield Charges around:

Thanks for your report, we'll look into this.
This should be possible anyway.

The change was dull. Let them trigger!
Any update on this? I have also tried cospri's interaction with shield charge and has not been fixed.

As of patch 3.7, Shield Charge attacks with the shield and therefore should not work with any trigger weapons such as Cospri's, Mjolner, or Poet's Pen. The bugged weapon is Poet's Pen since it is still triggering. I agree with xX999Xx that this was a dull change, but either none or all of them should work.
