Javelins first light attack is noticeably slower with a shield equipped. There is no damage increase or any other reason why there should be a different animation. For a weapon already struggling, this first hit is crucial especially when trying to retaliate after a shield block. It also cannot be intentional since no other weapon/shield combo has a slower first light attack with a shield equipped.

I have tested every javelin with every other off hand (torch, throwing axe) and they have the faster first attack animation.

Steps to replicate:

  1. Equip Javelin - Start recording
  2. Light attack
  3. Equip Shield with Javelin
  4. Light attack and it be slower, watch the elbow come back before the thrust
  5. Split the video, play them side by side in slow motion and see the difference.

It is a lot easier to see in the editor, but they are synced by the stamina bar consumption at the top
