Shield Gear Basics.png

Shields are secondary weapons for the Squire and the Countess. The stats will always consists of Armor as the primary stat and Hero Health as the secondary stat. These weapons also holds two Shards slots but doesn't have any slots for M.O.D.S.


Shields are meant to be used for the Squire/Countess' secondary attack Block - when utilized, any frontal damage dealt to the player will be reduced by 35% and hero's speed will be slowed to a crawl. However, this eventually becomes very ineffective during the late game where the players will be better off always moving and attacking rather than blocking as the enemies gets extremely ferocious. The only reason most players would utilize Block these days is when they have an Unholy Fire shard equipped which allows the Squire or Countess to become a walking flamethrower while Block is being used. That said, while the damage of the Unholy Fire isn't that bad, most wouldn't use it for serious progression as it's still heavily outclassed by much stronger hero builds. It's generally regarded more of a fun addition.

Basically, this result in the shield's main usage primarily becoming a stat boost to a hero's health and armor which would help them to be a little more tankier when fighting hordes of enemies.

Notes and Trivia

  • Shields in DD1 and DD2 are very different each other. In DD1, shields are accessory-esque loots that may contain hero or defense stats or both while shields in DD2 are secondary weapons that only contains hero health and armor stats. The only aspect that's identical in both games is that shields are mainly used by the Squire and Countess to Block.
  • In Dungeon Defenders Awakened, shields takes certain aspects from both games. Having more than two stats (and also using DD1 models) are aspects that came from DD1 while shields being offhand weapons instead of being accessories is an aspect that's taken from DD2.
