Shield

shield.png

A shield is very helpful in protecting you during combat by reducing the damage of an enemy's attack so you'll take less damage, and hopefully live to fight another day. Shields protect best against Dagger attacks. For added protection against projectiles, one might consider a Dragon Shield.

It should be noted that shield and body armour do not combine to give increased defence. Rather, the item which would take the lowest damage is used to defend against each attack.


Where to find
Trolls, and Troodonts are the most common place to find these, but you'll also get them from Larva, Dragons, and Dusk Trees. Claim your booty upon successful completion of a battle. Shields, like weapons, must be equipped to be used. When attacking a Troll, or Troodont (or another player for that matter) that shows the shield symbol, it will take you a little extra to kill. Carrying more than one can be a little heavy when you start out, so you can either dump for gold, or stash them for a rainy day. Shield upgrades start below 100 gold depending on % uses left. Each upgrade affords a little more protection, and gets progressively more expensive. Shields can be repaired with Halvar's Resin.
