Passive skills that increase shield stats—for example, Shield Block and Energy Shield on Shield—will have no effect. Passive skills that provide a bonus while holding a shield, such as the elemental resistances granted by Block Chance and Elemental Resistance with Shields, will still benefit the character.
Increased Rarity of Items found and Icreased Quantity of Items found modifiers can only benefit the character. These bonuses will be rendered useless when transferred to minions.
Bonuses not from modifiers on the equipped shield are not removed from the character and transferred to minions. Skill gems socketed in equipped shields will still be usable. The buff from will still benefit the character.
