Shields are special protective equipment in Death's Gambit. Shields grant specific abilities to the player when equipped.

The player character can equip two Weapons, one in each weapon slot. Each weapon is used ‘one at time’ and not ‘one in each hand’. Unlike other games you do not need to sacrifice a weapon slot for a shield, and you will always have a shield available to you. One exception is are the daggers, which only takes up one weapon slot while wielding a dagger in each hand.

Shields can be upgraded +1 to +10 through the use of Soul Stones and Immortalite.

      I don't have the power to edit but just in case anyone's struggling with heroic amulvaro, the tortoise shield is excellent for this fight and I keep it around just for him. It trivializes the phase where he tele dashes from multiple sides. worth the str investment even if you aren't a str build imo even better if you're sentinel so you can get it at 15 str.
