A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).
Solidity is a notable passive skill that grants additional chance to block with a shield equipped. It also grants increased melee damage while holding a shield and increased defenses from equipped shields. Defences include armour rating, evasion rating, and energy shield.
