Body shield detail.png

A body shield is a shield that can be made after completion of Elemental Workshop III. The shield used to be one of the best off-hand items in the game for magic defence, although with the removal of individual defence bonuses against various attack styles this is no longer the case.

It can be smithed on the anvil in the Elemental Workshop with one primed body bar.

The body shield is one of the few items in game to show an animation upon being wielded.

A body shield can be used as partial protection against the breath of skeletal wyverns and wyverns.
