Shields
Also referred to as:

    Shields are an item class of armour equipment. They can contain up to 3 sockets and need to be equipped in the off-hand slot. All shields provide a chance to block attacks, and some also grant implicit modifiers. Like Body Armour, shields have an inherent 3% movement speed penalty.

    There are 6 sub-types of shields:

    • 3 pure sub-types which have a single attribute requirement and provide an associated defense type (i.e. strength-based providing armour, dexterity-based providing evasion, and intelligence-based providing energy shield).
    • 3 hybrid sub-types which have two attribute requirements and provide both of the associated defense types, although at a lower value than the pure counterpart.
