Shield with bows?

Is it actually possible to use a shield with a two-handed bow? Or perhaps the attack speed penalty shown on the page applies only to formicids? --Chikinn (talk) 10:15, 6 August 2016 (CEST)

Shield penalty

Everywhere on this wiki, it says that the necessary shields skill values to remove penalties are 5/15/25 for normal-sized races, but it says here that they only need a skill of 4 to remove penalties for bucklers. Is this info wrong, or has everyone always been raising their skill 1 more than necessary? --Fingolfin (talk) 10:20, 14 August 2015 (CEST)

According to here:, they did slightly reduce the encumbrance for bucklers in the latest version. So I guess that's probably accurate, but only as of version 0.16. --spudwalt (talk) 11:49, 14 August 2015 (CEST)
Thanks I know 1 more skill level isn't much of an investment, but still, crawl is hard enough as it is. --Fingolfin (talk) 21:15, 14 August 2015 (CEST)
