Skins applicable


  • New players start out with a non-improvable medium wooden shield.
  • Shields work as intended only when worn on the left arm.
  • Shields have a percentage chance to block any melee attack, based on skill-level and class of shield, up to a maximum of 75%.
  • If you fail creating the shield, the nails and the plank are damaged.
  • Neither the QL of the nails nor the QL of the plank appears to affect chance of creation.
  • The last plank added to the shield determines the wood type of the finished shield.
  • High QL of the additional materials can cause the QL of the newly created shield to be considerably higher than the creators skill.
