Shields

Help Shields

(If you were looking for the Mage spell Shield, see 'help shield spell'.)

Shields have many benefits on Aardwolf.  Besides the obvious benefit of
higher resistances, physical and magical damage taken is reduced by 15%
while a shield is worn.  Warriors also have an additional chance to parry
attacks with a shield equipped (see 'help shield block'), as well as the
ability to use the shield as a weapon (see 'help shield punch').

You may not wield a secondary weapon while wearing a shield.  If you dual
wield a weapon, you will automatically remove your shield and any held 
item.
