Shields in Salt and Sanctuary are typically carried by trained swordsmen skilled in agile fighting . All players can use Class 0 Shields but you must put points into the Shields Skill in order to be able to use their higher Classed counterparts. The values listed in the tables below represent the percentage of damage blocked when blocking an attack with said shield. Please keep in mind that some Bosses can damage through shields that are 100 percent mitigation of a certain type, so 100 percent does not guarantee zero damage received.

    • Types of Shields?02 Apr 2016 20:31  

      I see there are four different types of shields; Buckler, Kite, Heater, and Tower Shields.<br/><br/>I would assume the Buckler type shield would be optimized for parrying, given the description of the Buckler shield.<br/>And Tower Shields optimized for maximum defense and shield bashing.<br/>But I am unsure on the differences between the Kite and Heater type shields.(Strangely, Palatine Kite Shield and Cleric's Kite Shield have "Kite Shield" in their titles, but are placed in the Heater Shield category)<br/>Also is there an actual difference in parry frames with the different types of shields?
