This skill allows a character to use a shield. Shield use in our game is unrealistic, as shields are practically indestructible. To compensate for this, shield use is somewhat restricted. You cannot intentionally make physical contact with your opponent with a Shield and may not “shield bash”; see the “Combat” section for details.

You cannot use a shield to perform weapon-based skills such as Parry. If hit with an effect that references a “weapon” (such as Shatter, Disarm, etc.) the shield will not be affected. However, these skills can intentionally target a “shield” instead.
