|A piece of wood and metal, to be strapped on one arm for defence. It is cumbersome to wear, and impedes the evasion, spellcasting ability, and attack speed of an unskilled wearer.|
A kite shield is a piece of armour which can be worn by any species but felids and spriggans to provide some degree of blocking defense (SH). They benefit equally from both strength and dexterity, making them a versatile choice for many characters, but without a decent Shields skill, they carry significantly more penalties to accuracy, evasion and spellcasting than the lighter buckler.
They can be found with the following egos:
|Shield of Resistance|
|Shield of the Gong|
- Kite shields were just called "shields" until 0.25.
