    Hello, as a person who tended to use 1h + shield up until endgame, I'm sad to see there is no "legendary" shield at all to be found!
    No rare chest loot, no boss drop, no craftable... It really ruins the excitement of the playstyle, when there is no "special" item to hunt for for the slot.

    I'd love to see a few legendary shields added, either as random loot, or as craftable (like a Perfectly Generic Shield or something).
    It would be really cool to have some sort of special effect to those shields as well, but the main thing is to just have some form of "endgame" shield at all.

    I haven't found any mods that add any special shields either, am I really the only one who plays with them?

    I feel like shields just dont get much attention because its a lot easier to just jump around to dodge enemy attacks than to purposefully stand in the way of it and take a hit.

    I tend to do both. I try to dodge attacks, but if I mess up and get hit, my shield saves me.
    And if there were special effects on hard-to-get shields, it could open up new play styles altogether. Just as an example, imagine a shield that shoot out a blast of damage whenever it took too much damage? Or a shield that gave you a slight HP regen while shielding?
    It just feels like, as you say now, shields are quite useless, but I think they have real potential.

    yeah, shields are pretty useless atm, especially end game. It'd be great to see more of em.

    I'd love to see legendary shields. I agree, shields have a lot of unused potential.
