"Shield of the knights of the ancient kingdom of Balder. Tweaked for improved stability.
Balder was the home of Knight King Rendal, but the kingdom was reduced to ruins after a widespread outbreak of Undead"

Acquired from:

Hints and Tips:

  • A heavier medium shield that's as stable as a +5 kite shield out of the gate
  • When fully upgraded, has the second highest stability of all medium shields
  • Has slightly above average lightning and fire resistance, but terrible magic resistance
  • Has the highest stability while maintaining 100% physical damage reduction for level 1 characters. Other shields are better but have a strength requirement which would require leveling up.

      Not a bad shield, but so hard to get if you aren't farming it. Great starting stability especially for the knight/warrior class
