Shields are carried in the user's off-hand to protect them from incoming weapons. Shields are one of the more diverse classes of items in Swords & Potions; there are metal shields (made primarily by the blacksmith), wooden shields (made primarily by the carpenter), and leather shields (made primarily by the tailor), with the sorceress helping out on higher-end magical items. In general, classes that wear heavy armor will also ask for shields (specifically, the Barbarian, Berserker, Guard, Knight, Paladin, and Soldier); the War Wizard will also ask for shields although he normally wears lighter armor.

Although demand for shields is generally reasonably high, like many categories, shields are rather difficult to sell at the high end; while the Paladin's heater shield has a decent return on use of rare materials, there are not many good options beyond it. The token recipe seven seas shield deserves note for being one of the highest-value items which does not require any rare materials to make.

The following table shows the properties of all shields in Swords & Potions. Token recipes are indicated by blue shading.

  1. Although the medusa shield does not itself require tokens to research, it is behind the spider shield on the research chain, so you will need tokens to get this recipe.
