This page is about the skill. For general information see Shields.

The Shields skill denotes how effective your character is at blocking melee or ranged attacks with shields. A higher Shields skill raises your SH score and decreases the penalties to your EV, spellcasting, accuracy and attack speed. In order to train the Shields skill, you must be carrying (but not necessarily wearing) a shield of some sort.

For information on item use, see Shields.
