"The Heater Shield is a medium-sized metal shield that offers solid protection without weighing down the wielder too much."
Compared to the Buckler Shield , the Heater Shield sacrifices the quickness of lifting the shield for better coverage and less stamina use. It is slightly wider than the Kite Shield , but not as long.
The solid coverage of this shield combined with the Man-at-Arms ' high run speed makes this the preferred special weapon when dealing with Archers.
This shield's unique shape makes it an ideal choice for people playing in first person persepective, as the blocking animation doesn't cover much of the screen.
Both Heater Shields are shown in the Team Selection screen.
